    I've tried out Zulu once and i didn't care for it. It was very lagging and buggy at the time.

    One of my DJs swears by a program called MixMeister. That is what he uses.

    MixMeister

    He puts together some cool beats with it. I stick with Virtual DJ though.

    I've been using MixMeister since 2000 or 2001 it's rock solid and very simple to use. I'm using version 6x now I bought 7 and didn't really like it. The downside of MM is there is basically no support and no real hope of any decent upgrades. There was a glimmer of hope a couple of years ago when Numark took them over but not much has happened aside from new version releases that look and act like the old versions

    That might work to it's advantage.
    When our radio stations first went digital, the program used Windows 3.0.
    As the years went on and the Windows updates piled on,
    the software STILL used 3.0.
    Our radio engineer explained that the simpler the OS,
    the easier it was to handle THOUSANDS of files, music logs and commercial logs...
    so the less chance of crashing.
    Sure enough, when the software finally upgraded to a newer OS..
    we started having more problems.

    Though .. as the number of files and data go up, the more the need for faster and more efficient hardware, which generally means a newer and more full-featured operating system.

    It's a vicious cycle .. or you stay stuck with limited functionality and limited performance.

    Windows 3.1 had a practical max addressable RAM limit of 256 MB... that's megabytes. Windows 10 Pro 64 bit has a limit of 512 GB... as in gigabytes. Enough said.

    Absolutely.
    Why do you think we eventually upgraded the system?

    Funny thing is (as it was explained to me) it wasn't so much the number of files in the system.
    THAT was a matter of HD space, not RAM.
    The old Windows operating systems interface was a very basic DOS program that didn't take resources away from running the program.
    Plus, the "full featured" operating systems brought in new issues that required more computing power:
    screen savers, automatic software updates, the Windows interface screen, newer monitors, internet connection, etc etc etc
    If you have your station on auto-pilot for the overnight hours,
    you don't want it to crash because Windows is trying to download updates at 3am.

    But, going back to the O.P.
    Those "old graphics" could be saving valuable resources...which is good when playing audio.
