Dear friends and members of the community.

We are very proud to be launching CrossDJ for iPad. This application is what we believe is the first profesionally developped iPad DJing app.
Meaning that MixVibes' team has the credentials and experience that no other company has on this particular niche of the DJing market.

Other iPad apps exist and work but our main competitors, the one with strong recognition and a critical acclaim for "serious DJing products" (serato and native instruments) have not yet entered this segment.

The information has already gone out to a network of advertisers and Music industry followers. Generally the feedback has been excellent. The info has bounced been reposted by many DJing blogs and magazines. We are expecting to get more reviews in weeks to come.

Available from the App Store - Expected Launch Date: mid May
Special launch price 7.99€
Normal price 14.99€

We would like our users to provide as much feedback as possible so we can keep improving our products.
The MixVibes team.

More details about our application:

Thanks to 10 years of expertise in DJing software, MixVibes brings you a functional iPad application including all the main DJing features you need to perform and control a seamless mix. The mixer section includes 2 players with 3-band equalizers, frequency kills, gains, 2 volume faders, a crossfader and 2 pitch sliders with adjustable range (4%, 6%, 8%, 16%, 32%, 100%).

The interface features 2 deck views: The “vinyl record deck” allows precise scratching and the possibility to cue a track as you would with a regular turntable. The “FX view” features a large X/Y control pad allowing you to explore the full extent and potential of the 13 audio FX. The “FX hold” feature allows you to lock down an audio effect on a precise setting point. These features are the gateway to a whole new spectrum of creative possibilities.

The first mode is the regular loop mode with 8 different lengths of loops varying from 1/8 beat to 16 beats (4bars). The second mode is called “slip” mode. Here, loops are active only when a finger is pressed on the loop. While the loop is active the track keeps playing so that when you release the finger the musical flow is not affected.

The BPM analysis algorithm used by CrossDJ has been fire-tested and perfected to the max for the iPad. This analysis is performed automatically the first time you load a track. Once analyzed, the mix is visually assisted with a sync meter and high definition waveforms. Thanks to the “Beatgrid” feature, mixes will be flawless and synchronized automatically. Edits to the beat grid are doable on-the-fly and saved to the collection.
Digital DJ TIP: “We (…) also think it is contender for best elastic beatgridding of any DJ software”.

CrossDJ offers the possibility to monitor the mix with headphones using multiple routing modes. The split routing allows monitoring, which means you are performing a mix in in actual professional conditions. The default setting plays music directly through the master stream.

CrossDJ is stocked with a combination of MixVibes’ multiple award-winning Media Management system and Apple’s intuitive track search paradigm. Media browsing is made through a multi-criteria filter or directly on the full size iPad keyboard. Hence, loading a new track is done in seconds. “Given [MixVibes’] excellence in library management, the iPad version is equally endowed with solid library skills too.

CrossDJ is compatible with most popular audio formats including every iTunes compatible format and many more. A pristine sound quality of CrossDJ will be offered through the headphone plug jack and the USB port.
Clean mixes and clear sound is what you are getting with CrossDJ!

The obvious next step for us is to develop the iPhone/iPod Touch version. We expect to launch this app sometime in the summer 2012.

New app looks good! The only question i have:
