The Mixvibes Cross Pro DJ Software allows for seamless HID integration with the Pioneer CDJ lineup. Now DJ's can control up to four Pioneer HID decks simultaneously within the Mixvibes software using all of the buttons and knobs found on the Pioneer CDJ range of CD decks. The latest video shows a host of features that can be controlled and manipulated through the CDJ on-board controls including hotcues, loops, file navigation, and much more.

Judging by the video, it seems that Mixvibes really does have excellent HID integration with the CDJ lineup and it may be even better than Pioneer Serato, and Traktor's already solid integration scheme. Better yet, the Mixvibes HID integration will work with the entire Pioneer CDJ lineup including the CDJ-350, 400, 850, 900, 2000, and the new 2000nexus. The software will also give CDJ users the ability to adjust their start and stop/brake times so that the play pause buttons work exactly how the DJ wants. The Mixvibes HID integration also works seemlessly with the Mixvibes Video plug-in that allows DJ's to easily perform with Video Mixing on their CDJ's. Even though MIxvibes is currently on version 2.5, We've already reviewed the Mixvibes Cross 2.0 software in the link below. Check it out to see the major features within the DJ software.
