If you've taken advantage of the power of Nullsoft's Shoutcast streaming media, ditching your Technics for a PC, you'll want to check this out. The first official beta of SMP3P, an MP3 player especially for DJs, has just been released.

The player gives you full support for up to three soundcards by loading three instances of the same programme. The ‘two instances' mode lets you run one playlist, keeping you in control of starting each track, while the third instance mode lets you play tracks not included on that playlist without interfering with it.

Other DJ related features are promised as the player develops - watch this space.
