Obelisk3 is the easiest to use, most powerful professional DJ system designed specifically for Mac OS X.
What's New
Version 3.0fc1 adds the following:
  • Multiple sound output device support! There are three settings for the Master Output device and the Monitor Device for each player. They are: Mac OS X Audio HAL - Selecting this uses whatever is selected in system prefs. Mac OS X Audio HAL (System) - This is always the built-in output. Firewire DV - Firewire out Example configuration: I use a Griffin iMic, which is connected via USB. I then use the System Preferences "Sound" pane to specify the iMic as my output device. Then in Obelisk I select the Master Output device as "Mac OS X Audio HAL", and the monitor as "Mac OS X Audio HAL (System)". Plug in the PA to the iMic, and my headphones to the built-in out and I'm ready to go.
  • Improved stability and performance.
  • Playlists can now be sorted by Play Order, Time, Title, Artist, and Album.
  • You can sort in both ascending and descending order by clicking the header cell you want to sort on.
  • Full support for all Quicktime compatible files including AIFF, AU, AVI, DV, MIDI, MPEG-1, MP3, MOV, Sound, Wave, and more!
  • You can now drop folders onto the play lists and Obelisk will automatically search down through every file and folder, adding every supported file.
  • You can now drag and drop from one player to another.
  • Currently playing player is now indicated with a small red sphere in the upper right corner of the player.
  • Windows now remember their position and size.
  • When adding files to a play list they are now added in the same order they appear in the finder.
  • Time now displays to the 1/100th of a second. And the "back" and "forward" buttons will step in 1/100th increments to allow the most precise track positioning.
  • You can now search the play lists by typing text into the "search" field.
  • Improved Auto Fading reliability and accuracy.
  • You can have Obelisk randomly select the next track in either playlist.
  • Playlists indicate how many tracks are being displayed and the total number of tracks loaded.

I'm so disappointed in Obelisk!
Rocky at best, it works only occasionally and is frequently inclined to simply stop the music in the middle as though it needs to adjust to a new command. (Sounds like an awesome party, doesn't it?) Further, it won't take songs directly from iTunes so playing from playlists are difficult requiring futzing with the library files or duplicating songs and it refuses to delete the songs so you can start from scratch. At the end of the day it does little more than overlap songs which you can do with iTunes anyway.
Oh, where, oh, where is the great DJaying software the works smoothly with iTunes?! Well, look much further, cuz Obelisk ain't it.
