Mixvibes' new flagship Mac/PC software offers video features, frequency colored waveforms
DJ software producer Mixvibes has released its new flagship Mac and PC video mixing software, Cross 3. Used for video clip playback, or for more experimental productions, DJs can choose their level of complexity, take control of the video mixing or let the software follows the music automatically. Featuring two audio and video players, a large video output bar, 35 video transitions and 18 video effects, users can create synced visuals with a music playlist, with the flexibility of live selection.
Cross gives its users access to two four-pad video samplers, which allows for adding VJ loops, sampling any part of the video playing in the deck, and editing video content straight into Cross with the sampler, with no need for other third-party software. Cross 3 introduces a colored frequency waveform feature, including low, mid and high frequencies. Available in three versions, Cross DJ 3 can be purchased online from Mixvibes.
