WNAMM08: Most Powerful DJ Software Ever?


MixMeister has announced MixMeister Fusion and MixMeister Studio 7.2. The Fusion and Studio updates for Windows include streamlined performance and features. This release also marks the first Mac versions of MixMeister.
MixMeister say that MixMeister Fusion sets the standard for combining live DJ performance with the pinpoint precision of the best studio production software while MixMeister Studio changes the way studio remixes are created.
Version 7.2 of both packages includes the following:
  • Native Mac OSX version is universal binary for PowerPC or Intel processors
  • Improved time stretching accurately matches beats with fast or slow tempos
  • Enhanced timeline display provides clear division of measures
  • Effect automation via MIDI controllers – external hardware can now manipulate effect parameters
  • Support for stored EQ settings in transition templates for advanced users
  • “Fade and Cue Nextâ€� feature fades and pauses a mix then starts at the next track – prefect for voice over announcements (Fusion only)
  • New master volume control for preview output – headphone and main out can be controlled independently (Fusion only)
Fusion 7.2 lets musicians maintain up to eight songs perfectly beat-matched at all times, enabling improvisation with effects to shape the music in a million ways. Fusion supports harmonic mixing, VST effects, intelligent looping, MIDI hardware controllers and more. Fusion is designed to mix complete DJ sets from full-length songs to achieve the functionality of a loop editor or digital audio workstation, and can blend songs together to create stunning DJ performances.
MixMeister Studio 7.2 is the only digital audio application designed exclusively for high-end mix production projects. Studio gives DJs the ability to make nanosecond tempo adjustments, shift the key of any song, add beat loops and plug-in special effects and much more. MixMeister's innovative visual display allows zoom in on individual beats and measures to make precise adjustments until the mix sounds exactly right. With MixMeister Studio, it’s easy to create commercial-quality DJ mixes and burn them to CD or stream them over the Internet.
Both MixMeister Fusion and MixMeister Studio offer the ability to manipulate tempo, volume and EQ in real time, on-the-fly. Musicians can also add effects and experiment with looping features. Both also record all actions (not just the resulting audio), so DJs can go back, listen to the mix, and make precise adjustments with studio-style editing capabilities.
Pricing and Availability:
MixMeister Fusion has a suggested retail price of $329.95, while MixMeister Studio lists at $169.95 More information:

    probably not the best choice of words for the headline, but it will do. lots of flashy features announced here but who's to say this software is stable(and if all the features don't bog the system down to a crawl)? sometimes the most powerful DJ software is that which is lean

    Do you not understand the point of a question mark then Mr. Tunes?

    Mr. Tunes?    Said...

    who cares that they put a question mark in? the mere fact that they are wondering if this is going to be one of the most powerful DJ software packages is the problem.

    anyways i just watched the video and i realize this program isn't really intended for live djing as much as putting together things like compilation albums. i'm not going to knock it any more without trying it first.
