Its full-screen mode, together with the possibility of toggling on and off those components you choose will let you customize your virtual mixing desk according to your preferences.

Zulu will analyze all the tracks and will assign a BPM rate to each of them and normalize them to avoid heavy volume changes. As a bonus, Zulu will let you record your sessions for further use.
The program comes with an interesting array of audio effects that you can apply on the fly. These effects include chorus, distortion, flanger, echo, reverb, tremolo, wah-wah, and a 7-band equalizer.

You can also play with the program’s pan controls, loops, and cues to produce stunning mixes.
Zulu’s accurate BPM detection algorithm is probably one of its main assets.

As you can see, there are many reasons why any DJ should be interested in trying and using this mixing software. Besides, as long as you use it without any commercial purpose or gain whatsoever, Zulu DJ Software will cost you nothing.
