MegaSeg 5.5 brings the beat to Magic Mouse, trackpads

updated 05:25 pm EDT, Tue October 12, 2010

Visual cues given greater prominence

Mac-only pro audio/video DJ and broadcast automation software MegaSeg has been updated to version 5.5, introducing a new Wave Viewer, redesigned decks and trackpad beat syncing and scrubbing compatible with MacBook trackpads as well as Apple's Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse. MegaSeg developer Fidelity Media says over 100 refinements are included in the update, which is free for MegaSeg v5 users.

The Wave Viewer works in conjunction with the trackpad scrubbing to allow visual beat mixing and cueing, triggering sounds via hot keys, and ensuring seamless transitions. Album art displays are more prominently featured on both the decks and track info popups, along with audio and video filters to find specific types of files quickly. Icons are seen in list view to distinguish video "tracks" from audio, and v5.5 adds gain controls up to 3x for softer selections.

The update also makes improvements in automatic volume adjustments, playlist scheduling, drag-and-drop track reordering and the handling of streaming online broadcasts.

While v5.5 is available now as a free update to v5 users, updates from older versions are $79. The program retails for $249. A free trial version is available.
