Bewitched

Do you DJ at social dancing events, like tango or salsa?

I have written an app, originally called Embrace and now re-christened Bewitched, to be my companion when I DJ at tango milongas.

People noticed, and I have given out copies to fellow DJs, even set up a website for it. Now I think it's ready for the wider audience.

You can't see it, but this is where you play live for dancers

What could it possibly do for you?

Bewitched was created with the social dancing DJ in mind. It cares for things you certainly find important:

The original version was primarily a playback tool. The version 2.0 adds a plethora of features for searching and organizing your playlists, so that you don't need your iTunes to look up tracks while DJing.

You can't see it, but this is where you prepare your next set

Available in Czech, English, German, and Spanish.

What Bewitched is not

This is an app for social dancing DJs, not for mixing EDM, hip-hop, etc. It's also not intended to replace iTunes or MusicBee in their roles of organizing your music library itself. It only supports a limited set of metadata that is useful for DJing at social dancing events.

Bewitched will not mess with your music library. No auto-organizing or other shenanigans.

Yeah, and it's only for Windows computers, sorry 😎

Download

Click here to download the setup file. It is digitally signed and you should see my name in the digital signature when inspecting the download. That tells you the program comes from me.

Bewitched digital signature

Please note that your browser might block the download. That's because too many jerks have polluted the Internet with viruses and malware, and browsers don't trust me until many of you download the app. I have nothing to back me up other than my word but I promise there is nothing malicious in Bewitched. I have everything to lose, so I do make sure this is the case.

When running the installer, you might see Windows SmartScreen intervene. That's because I don't have enough creds with Microsoft yet. Again, jerks ruining the Internet with junk. Eventually, I will build the reputation and new customers won't see this.

Click "More info" on the first screen to get to the second. If you see my name as Publisher, it's legit. Click "Run anyway" to install Bewitched.

There's no setup wizard, the app just installs and runs. Bewitched does not automatically update itself, I think that's rude. Click the "About" icon in the top bar to look for updates and install them at your convenience (or never).

You can uninstall it anytime from the Control Panel.

Availability and price

I distribute Bewitched using the decades-old "shareware" model. You can download the app for free and use it for 30 days. If you find yourself using it after that, please purchase a licence.

The licence costs 59,- EUR + VAT 21% if you live in the EU and is valid indefinitely for the version 2 including all feature and security updates. When the version 3 is released, there might be an additional upgrade fee.

There is no online checkout at the moment. If you are here to purchase your licence, please use PayPal to send me 59 EUR if from ourside the EU or have an EU VAT ID, or 71.40 EUR from within the EU. Please specify your VAT ID if you have it.

You will receive a VAT invoice upon payment.

Legal stuff, if you must.
