About DM2 to MIDI

DM2 to MIDI is an application for Windows that allows you to use the DM2 (Digital Music Mixer) by mixman as a regular MIDI controller. This enables you to use your DM2 to control any MIDI supporting application such as Cubase VST, Traktor DJ Studio or visualJockey just to name a few.

To fully use DM2 to MIDI you will need a so-called virtual midi router such as Hubi's LoopBack Device (for Windows 98) or MIDI Yoke Junction (for Windows ME, 2000 and XP). Please check their sites for installation instructions and support.

DM2 to MIDI is free. But if you happen to like it and feel like I should continue supporting and developing it in the future, let me know by checking out the PayPal button in the top right corner of this page. Thanks ;)

Note: I'm not affiliated with mixman in any way. If you've got questions regarding DM2 to MIDI, ask them directly to me and not to mixman!
