MixVibes has released Cross 2.4, a new version of its flagship software for Mac/PC. This version has 4 decks and a new sync mode. Here's the details directly from MixVibes:
4 full decks and a redesigned sampler
Cross now features 4 full decks. They can be controlled by Pioneer CDJs and MIDI controllers. Mappings for popular 4-deck controllers are included.
Decks C & D can be switched between players or samplers. The samplers layout has been redesigned for enhanced readability. Each pad has its own waveform, making it easy to know what sample is playing.
Sync Link mode, based on industry standard workflow
MixVibes' philosophy is to create products with genuine DJ spirit. For this reason, Cross 2.4 designers got inspired by the CDJ 2000 Nexus workflow.
Sync Link works in a very simple way : each deck in sync follows the master. Master status is attributed automatically. Besides, the phase of each deck can be controlled manually with the pitch-bend.
Classic trigger mode is still available in the preferences panel (so you really get the best of both worlds.)
What else is new in this update?
- New controller mappings: Numark MixTrack, MixTrack2, MixTrackPro2, Denon SC-2900, Pioneer DDJ-WeGO

- Manage 4 stereo outputs in external mixer audio routing mode.

Wow, i'm impressed by the past couple of updates MixVibes has come up with. Seems like CROSS is evolving fast and coming up with all the features to make it a solid contender. I'm considering this as an option to DJ with my new CDJ-850 in HID. Can't wait to receive them and test the demo.
