Cross DJ 4 Megathread

Postby catgoat on 21 May 2019, 23:06

I figure there will be ongoing discussion about the new version, so why not have it happen in a megathread?

I have been working with the demo for a bit now. The wave forms don't animate smoothly. there is about a half second lag between pressing play and a track actually playing.

I enabled video in the options, but i am not seeing the video in the preview windows like in Cross 3. Does the demo allow me to play video as well?

changing the audio settings to windows audio reduced the lag, as well as changing the buffer size. the waveform started moving before the audio would play.

the audio also seems to speed up and slow down on it's own, without me touching a pitch slider. the BPM doesn't change though.

Edit-

Forgot my laptop specs:

core i5 5200u
8gb ram
250gb ssd
1gb hdd
geforce 940m
win 10 64 bit

Did not test the demo, but the Pro version has vid working.
You do have to select the vid bar in Menu> View.

For start multiple settings may interfere. Like sync, magnetic link, sync mode (in pref).
I did notice some issue when immediate play after pause, though might have been I misclicked by mouse.

The best audio drivers for DJing are Asio. These have lowest latency options. If you don't have this you can install ASIO4ALL and once installed start Cross, slect it and set it to use your soundcard.

Where's CD/Vinyl mode?
Beatmatch area is too small.
Manual not updated.
Interface looks like old one, just dark colors without shading (too flat btw.
Skin/MIDI mapping functionality not explained at all.

You should finish this version before releasing.

Agree with bigger beatmatcher.

Upon mouse click or holding a jogwheel, the waveform should not go into auto zoom for scratching.

The zoom function on the waveform should not be indivial. It should be a slider to control and affect all parallel waveforms equally.

Pitch sliders should not be in the same area as the waveform.
GUI should display 8 tiles at a time not just 4 for locators, loops and samples.

Must be able to display video and beatmatcher or at least video and parallel waveform at the same time.

Make some kin of tutorial on how to create skins for Cross. Possibly everything that I just mentioned can be fixed just by making that available.

Publish and updated list of MIDI mapping commands as it has been done in the MIDI mapping section of the forum for previous versions of Cross.

There is a Tick Box in the Config Settings to turn off mouse zoom.

It is absolutely scary watching the extremely jerky wave-forms when using AutoPlay. This is on two Windows 7 laptops - an i3 and an i5. Neither has crashed, but like I said, it looks really spooky.

Thanks for that answer. Part of the problem ( as mentioned by others in this thread) is that there is not an updated user manual.

With the GUI changed so drastically from previous versions and no manual available, I find myself guessing where the functions are at and how they work.

The extremely jerky wave forms also occur when the Preview Player is turned on.
