Mixvibes Updates CrossDJ To Version 2.5 – Adds Native Key Detection
Mixvibes had premiered a major update for their Cross DJ mixing software for Mac and PC. Version 2.5 features build-it key detection and control, new full screen collection and more. There’s accurate buildin key detection right in Cross DJ: no need for third party software anymore. Key can be displayed in classic notation or harmonic code, making it easy to find matching tracks.
Key is just as important as BPM. Cross DJ displays it straight into the deck header. Match it automatically to the master deck, or change the pitch manually by semitones. The dynamic key display reflects those changes, and turns white when in harmony. Browsing by key is now super easy: key compatible tunes are highlighted in bright orange. Focus on other search criteria, and the key still pops up.
The collection view is now more intuitive than ever with the new miniplayers. It provides more real estate to browse tracks, while keeping an eye on what’s playing. Additionally, you can now drag and drop tracks between players and samplers useful when you have only one turntable or CDJ.
DJs are used to production software grids to understand a track’s structure. Cross DJ is the first DJ application to show those markers on the track’s peak view, making it easy to mix musical phrases.
