MixMeister Releases Fusion, Fusion + Video & Studio DJ Sequencers
MixMeister has released Fusion, Fusion + Video and Studio, three new DJ software offerings that allow track sequencing and mixing. Although MixMeister tries to claim that they have developed “an all new class of DJ software,” which they have dubbed the DJ sequencer, the reality is that almost everything that the new MixMeister products achieve can be also be accomplished with either Ableton Live or Sony’s Acid Pro. However, instead of competing head on with Sony or Ableton, MixMeister has taken the approach of focusing strictly on digital mixing in a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) “environment”.
MixMeister Fusion is a DJ software application that combines the spontaneity of live DJing with sequencing precision. Fusion lets you rock up to eight songs at a time all perfectly beat-matched, allowing you to freely cut between tracks and incorporate VST effects. Fusion supports harmonic mixing, intelligent looping, MIDI hardware controllers, and more.
MixMeister Studio gives you the ability to make nanosecond tempo adjustments, shift the key of any song, and drop in loops into a mix. MixMeister’s visual display allows you to zoom in on individual beats and measures, and make precise adjustments until your mix sounds exactly the way you want, and then burn the final mix to a CD or encode it for streaming over the Internet.

MixMeister Fusion + Video â€” Video Module
MixMeister Fusion + Video is built on top of MixMeister Fusion software allowing you to mix full-motion, beat-matched videos right alongside your audio mix. For only $99.95 more than the cost of Fusion, you can perform integrated audio/video sets without the complexity of dedicated VJ gear. Place music videos in your playlist just like audio files, and Fusion will let you beat mix them, loop them and manipulate them on the fly.
Fusion + Video lets you control exact video sequences and transitions, or you can use the montage builder to automatically create video mixes in perfect sync with the beat. This feature is perfect for displaying lots of short ambient or psychadelic clips in sync with a song.
MixMeister Fusion and Studio for Windows XP or Vista cost $329.95, and $169.95 respectively. MixMeister Fusion + Video costs $429.95. MixMeister Fusion, Fusion + Video and MixMeister Studio are available now from most musical instrument retailers, or directly from their website. Trial versions are available for download.
