Mixvibes CROSS overview

  • 1Description

CROSS from MixVibes is a digital vinyl and MIDI DJ software solution for Windows and Mac based platforms. Because finding the right track to play next is the first responsibility of a DJ, CROSS is focused on media management and interface simplicity - full iTunes integration, multiple tag edit, artwork browsing, smart media preview, missing media manager and multiple playlist visualization.

CROSS also enables you to detect an external hard drive on the fly and start playing tracks from it during your set. The iTunes integration is one of the software's most unique features with playlists importation, and artwork cover management. The look and feel of iTunes software is reproduced in CROSS to enhance the ease of use.

The software is built on a high-end audio engine that delivers 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 excellent sound quality, even when drastic BPM changes are implemented.

CROSS Software

  • Large beat match view lets you monitor your mix and manage perfect transitions thanks to a wide display of your current mix
  • Zoom in or out to see more or less of the upcoming beats of your mixed tracks
  • Sync display of the Sync-Indicator triangles achieved with a simple mouse-over on the Sync button
  • Time display let's you keep an eye on the clock and better manage your set during the performance
  • Uncluttered and simplified menu with only 2 menu headers to get to everything quickly
  • For a better ease of use, most of the player commands are logically and symmetrically laid out
  • Crystal clear waveform display with contrast variations corresponding to the track's frequency
  • The waveform zoom helps you set your CUE points more precisely than ever - zoom it, hit CUE Stop or CUE Play, and ensure the best starting point - zoom in, zoom out or reset to standard view in a second
  • Track time display allows you to see exactly where you are within your track
  • Includes blinking CUE button like those found on most major DJ hardware
  • CUE Stop and CUE Play buttons - for when you wish to prepare your CUE, or for when you've already set it and are ready to go
  • CUE points are now automatically saved within every CROSS track - no need to additionally save
  • Huge display of the track's information - time elapsed, time remaining, BPM and pitch
  • Change Scroll mode allows a choice of displaying the waveform moving, or the scroll line itself moving
  • The full track overview makes it easy to identify the various changes within a track - intro, refrain or break
  • CD/Vinyl switch - software embeds a "CD mode" that reproduces the CDJ-like behavior that you like for setting the cue points (choose "Vinyl" to switch to scratching your track with one click)
  • Scrolling track title on top of each player displays the artist and song name and its duration of your track
  • In addition to the mixer gain, CROSS implements an individual track gain to let you adjust the gain more accurately
  • 3 pitch modes including both classic "speed" and "master tempo" pitch modes, along with a third pitch mode called "Hybrid" which aims to avoid distortions if you change the pitch in a drastic way
  • Adjust the pitch of your songs either plus or minus 4, 8, 16 , 32 or even 100% compared to the original pitch
  • Accurate pitch bend and nudge
  • Tap in a tempo by clicking the BPM area
  • Smart Seek allows you to jump through your track by a user defined number of measures (up to 16 maximum)
  • Create manual or automatic loops in the CROSS loop section, located at the bottom of the player
  • Loop section can be easily controlled thanks to an external control unit
  • Click IN and then OUT at the desired entry and exit points of your loop, or just click on the desired loop value to create a loop instantaneously - in both cases, simply click "loop" to exit it
  • While in a loop, click the + or - buttons to change the value of the loop
  • Match and Sync - press "Match" to match the beat or both tracks or press "Sync" to match and synchronize them on the beat
  • Use the scroll wheel of your mouse on your PC, or use the pad of your Mac and scroll with 2-fingers in both horizontal and vertical ways to change your pitch, volume level or to cross fade
  • Record each player individually, but also your whole mix, either both tracks onto the same file, or in two separate tracks
  • Besides the sound from both players, CROSS lets you connect and play every audio source thanks to the Line In switch located on the mixer
  • Complete set of EQ buttons makes it possible to fine tune your levels during your mix. When mixing in external mode, only the gain level remains and you'll be able to reproduce the same thing with a classic mixer

    Mixvibes CROSS reviews

    CROSS - DJ Performance Software is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Software Cross is an inexpensive software solution to a digital vinyl setup. I use cross through my iMac with the Umixx Soundcard. After having used this software for mulitple events, I am getting a better idea of the benefits and bugs of Cross. Its faily easy to setup after you learn to navigate their preferences. Although, specifically with my Umixx Card, I have to unplug it and restart the application everytime I open Cross to get the output channels working. Once running, the iTunes portion of the explorer is perfect-allowing me to quickly and easily use the playlists I had already created. Adding and customizing the controls of external devices is simple, even for a beginner. I found it effortless to add and customize a midi device during my set in a recent event. Troubles began when switching to Line In for actual vinyl use. Afterwards my Umixx Card was delaying the Timecode Vinyls almost a second behind-meaning accurate scratching and beatmatching are almost impossible. Mixvibes continues to update their software-adding a stronger, more accurate BPM engine, basic FX controls, and much more. They may not bare the name of other, more mainstream retailers, but dont let that bother you. You can hit the ground running with Cross.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpected fine piece of software I've been using mixvibes cross for the past 6 months on PC and had a bunch of good surprises. One of them was the very sound quality even in master tempo mode (also provided by the sound card included in the pack i guess.... I'm crazy about the interface, it looks AWESOME and is a lot easier to master than any mixing software. I own about 50 K songs and the media management deals with em extremely well too. In a nutshell, i love it.
