Pioneer’s rekordbox software developer MixVibes has dropped a NAMM 2013 bombshell of its own: The new MixVibes Cross 2.3 DJ software gives HID integration with Pioneer’s full current CDJ range, giving tighter, richer control, including the ability to use the CDJs’ sound cards and to scratch video.
Now DJs can roll up to the club and DJ or video DJ with nothing more than laptop and two USB cables.
There’s track browsing and loading (including artwork), loops, cues, on-beat smart-seek, fingerstrip search (on compatible players) and more.
Now DJs can roll up to the club with a laptop and two USB cables and video DJ from take control of Pioneer’s CDJs using MixVibes…
Video is enabled with the use of the video plugin for MixVibes Cross, and the software itself has had a number of other improvements including slip mode, start/break time adjustments (both accessible through the HID mapping for Pioneer CDJs) and better handling of other external Midi controllers.
To our knowledge, MixVibes Cross is the only software with HID mappings for Pioneer CDJs apart from Serato Scratch Live and Native Instruments.
The upgrade is available now for Mac and PC from the Mixvibes website.
