Muziic DJ Turns YouTube Into Mixing Station

One of the more accessible sources for music, when you need to find a single to show your friends, is, of course, a video on YouTube. Be it for synching playlists to a party or for browsing an artist before you buy their album, we’re all well familiar with how integral it’s become to our audio lives.

Not long ago came the release of the Facebook app Muziic, which brings music and playlists to your profile via a YouTube source. And now the creator of that program has released a freestanding internet app called Muziic DJ. It works like two turntables with a mixer, giving you the ability to synch and meld songs together into an endless dance track. While the songs spin, their videos stream side by side for your viewing pleasure. The functions available to you include a fader, loops, reverb and brake. I’ll be sure to have fun with this on upcoming summer nights, with buddies huddled around the laptop to take our turn at being Girl Talk.  [Mashable]
