The media browsers and database collections of most digital DJ mixing systems can be a bit painful to use (e.g. Virtual DJ). I have found that accurately tagging my collection in another program like Media Monkey and then copying the collection over in bulk to the mixing laptop is the best method of managing my collection.
Every incoming file on my computer automatically ends up in a folder called _untested. The _untested folder is further divided into sub folders Completed Torrents, From People, GetRight, and Soul Seek . In each root folder there will be individual files like in the picture below
Whenever I have the time I troll through all the folders and clean them out. All the software gets deleted or moved to the Software Drive (S:), same for the Watching Pleasure (W:). All the music I extract and play next in Media Monkey. I quickly skip through a few tracks to get a feel for genre of the album. I’ll delete the whole album fairly ruthlessly if it sounds at all cheesy or not really my style.
This is a nicely put together full lenght flash animation of the oh so ever classic. Enjoy

Yet all the news articles I have seen on consoles recently have been about the Wii wooing hearts and minds of toddlers and grans alike. Now what do I find but a crazy cat has hooked one up to his sampler and loop software on his pc and is using the WiFi Wii handset to create a live mix. I wonder if anyone has added visuals as well?
