March 12, 2009 by Mobile Beat

NORTH MIAMI, FL – March 12, 2009 – DJ software developer Mixvibes announces the release of Cross, a new digital vinyl software for Windows and MAC platforms. MixVibes drew from its experience in audio engine and vinyl control design to deliver a new professional DJ product that brings more efficiency and simplicity to the mix. Cross is built around a a high-end audio engine to deliver high quality industry-standard features, such as Hot Cues and Auto Beat Loops, and the deck layout is based on acclaimed DJ hardware bestsellers. The state of the art “Z-plane” Master Tempo technology ensures an excellent sound quality even for drastic BPM changes (+/-20%) while the exclusive Hybrid mode ensures a smart transition between Master tempo and Speed mode to avoid digital distortion at extreme pitch values.

Cross features a high quality scratching algorithm when used with MixVibes’s control records/discs. MixVibes is known for their high-resolution time code, which allows for ultra precise scratching even at extreme speeds. Cross uses the same control records as MixVibes’ DVS software. Cross can also be controlled via MIDI and is already compatible with several controllers including the Vestax VCI-100 and VCM-100, Numark Total Control, and Pioneer CDJ-400.

Finding the right track to play next is the most important task of a DJ. That is why Cross focuses on media management and interface simplicity with an intuitive advanced media management system: full iTunes integration, multiple tag edit, artwork browsing, smart media preview, missing media manager, multiple playlist visualization, and more. DJ’s can organize and edit tags and artwork using the ‘info’ tab. Create or edit playlists on the fly and auto-mix them… if you need to take a breather from the decks. Easily relocate missing files and update your Media collection. Cross also enables users to detect an external hard drive on the fly and start playing tracks from it during DJ sets. The iTunes® integration is one of Cross’ most unique features. The software fully assimilates the iTunes® library, even reproducing its look and feel. Importing tracks is as simple as dragging from the iTunes® library into the Cross collection. Cross also imports album artwork, playslists, or the entire iTunes® library, making it simple to prepare and edit playlists with iTunes®!

Cross will start shipping in the USA March 23rd and will be available at all MixVibes retailers. For more information, please visit http://www.mixvibes.us.
