Ots Turntables FreeOts Turntables Free from Ots Labs lets you use your computer and mouse to mix music like a DJ.

The controls are very similar to what you would find in hardware CD DJ units and let you scratch songs using your mouse, adjust tempo, play tracks backwards, and even add a warm vinyl-crackle sound. The controls let you manage your WAV, MP3, or CD track playlist. The program also includes Auto DJ mixing controls (great for parties) in addition to graphic equalizer and compression settings to help you get that mix sounding just right.

Audacity

Audacity

Looking for a good all-purpose audio editor? Audacity is an open-source, free audio editor that lets you record, play, convert, and edit audio files. You can convert file formats, edit sounds, mix tracks, and apply effects to your recordings. The program also features a built-in amplitude envelope editor, a customizable spectrogram mode, and a frequency analysis window. Built-in effects include Bass Boost, Wahwah, and Noise Removal, and the app also supports VST plug-in effects.

The 1.3.0b beta version offers improved performance for larger projects and has several new features such as the ability to expand and collapse tracks. However, we recommend using 1.2.4b for maximum stability.

Note: Some antispyware packages detect Audacity as containing Buddy Spy 2.2 spyware. This is a known false positive. According to the developer, the compressed Audacity executable happens to have some of the same byte-sequences as Buddy Spy 2.2, but it’s just a coincidence. See the developer’s Web site for details.

CacheSort

CacheSort

Can’t find a video you just watched online? The video is probably still on your hard drive in the Internet cache folder. An easy way to find all the videos in the cache is with CacheSort. This freebie automatically moves (or copies) files from the cache into specific folders. Just remember that CacheSort isn’t a fancy program. For instance, there’s no installation — simply double-click the file and you’ll see the tool in your system tray. To view the collection of movies and images, right-click on the icon and select CacheSort.

PrinterAnywhere

Want to print a document directly on a buddy’s printer, anywhere in the world? If you’re both online, you can do it with PrinterAnywhere. The free utility installs on both PCs, and you can choose the PrinterAnywhere printer from any application. An encrypted version of the file shoots through the Internet and prints on your buddy’s printer. Turn the idea around and you can share your printer with anyone. It’s ideal for sending confidential documents (as noted, the file is encrypted when sent); and unlike e-mail, it can’t be forwarded.
