A leak of information that appears to be from the Mixvibes beta forum has been shared across social media, and it indicates that the new version is in private testing, and that it should be due soon – something we suspected when we saw that Mixvibes was included in the SoundCloud DJ software streaming announcement made last week.
Stated improvements include Retina/HiDPI display, modular layout with the ability to hide/show chosen elements, improved beatmixing on autoplay, optional autocue points on analysis, and a whole host of new FX presets with four instead of two simultaneous FX.
Whether it’ll be enough to revive the platform remains to be seen, as a lot has changed in DJ software in the three years since Mixvibes Cross 3 was released – not least that most DJ platforms now work on dedicated hardware. Whether Mixvibes Cross DJ 4 will have official hardware tie-ins remains to be seen.
When we have more news, we’ll let you know.
