CHAMPAIGN-URBANA, Illinois—June 8th, 2001—Fidelity Media released MegaSeg 2.0, a major upgrade to their Macintosh DJ software. For DJs who need more mixing control than Apple’s iTunes offers, MegaSeg is a professional solution with added features demanded by serious DJ’s. In addition to MegaSeg’s already famous library search and categorizing system, allowing users to find requests instantly, MegaSeg’s cross-fade and new beat mixing capabilities adds features professional DJ’s require.
DJ’s that want the easiest possible setup available, MegaSeg will free users from carting around CD’s, Pro CD players, mixers, and assorted equipment to and from gig after gig. With MegaSeg, a sleek new Macintosh laptop, a Mic, and powered speakers, users have a complete compact mobile DJ system with a painless setup to boot. Did we mention users will no longer need to bring or fumble through any CD’s at a show ever again? MegaSeg replaces your CD library, CD players and mixer.
Real-time beat mixing is MegaSeg 2.0’s headline feature. The new mixer interface allows users to mix using automatic or manual cross-fades. An Auto Beat Match button adjusts the next song’s pitch to match the tempo of the current song. Multiple sound output devices are fully supported, for independent main output and headphone cue monitoring, including USB solutions like the Griffin iMic, Roland UA-30, or PowerBook cards such as Digigram’s VXPocket for professional balanced XLR outputs. Beat mixing can also be accomplished using a single stereo output by splitting the left and right channels into two mono channels.
In addition to the new mixing features, MegaSeg 2.0 has an improved interface, with a new Request List function for noting requests, among 50 other improvements. Video is also supported in MegaSeg using Apple’s QuickTime technology, including full screen playback on a video projector or monitor via a PowerBook’s S-Video output. DJ’s can entertain the crowd with Flash animations and QuickTime music videos downloaded from the Net. Using Apple’s free iMovie, you can digitize and compress videos into small files that work like a charm in MegaSeg.
Professional DJ’s interested in becoming professional ‘Digital’ DJ’s should give MegaSeg a test drive. A demo version is available on their site (www.megaseg.com). Version 2.0 is available now through July 1st for $119 ($30 off the regular price of $149). Current 1.x users can upgrade for $49.
