MixVibes Cross 2.4: 4 Decks + HID Control

7

MixVibes continues to close the gap between its DJ software and the other big players in the industry, and the release of Cross 2.4 is no exception. The new version of Cross features four decks in the software, the bottom two of which can be switched between sample and player mode, similar to Traktor’s Remix Decks / Track Decks (note that there are still only 4 slots in the sample modes – it’s not Remix Deck sized in that respect).

Each of the decks can also now be controlled via HID devices, an advancement which will allow Pioneer CDJ users (not just the Nexus, as some other outlets have reported) to use a Sync Link workflow where each deck follows a master- but master status is attributed automatically based on what the primary playing deck is. Have a look at how this HID control works in the video below:

Additionally, the new version of MixVibes also incudes controller mappings for a few key intro-style models, including the Numark MixTrack/2/Pro2, Denon SC2900, and Pioneer DDJ-WeGO.

Will Cross become a staple in DJ booths overnight? Probably not – but if they continue to build a feature set that brings them into alignment with all of the other offerings, there’s a chance that they could make a move at the market fairly easily with a few forward-thinking features.

      Since MixVibes is developing Rekordbox too. I’m pretty sure Djs are starting to realize that CROSS is a solid option. The 4 decks is not something i use very much, but i know it has been requested a bunch on the forum. Once again MixVibes reacted to the most popular demand. It’s awesome to post your ideas, get an answer and see your input in the software within a few months :-))

      For having compared with Serato and Traktor, I can say that CROSS is my solution of choice to spin in HID mode with Pioneer CDJs. No soundcard required, just connected to the decks via USB. avoids all the RCA hassle !!!

    Can it be use with NumarkV7?

    • IDK about the V7 specifically but I’ve been running 4 decks using 2 CDJ-2000s and a Numark Mixdeck. I like the CDJs as my main two so I edited the mapping on the Mixdeck to point control C/D instead. You can switch this arrangement and you wouldn’t need to do anything.
