In celebration of this week’s MacWorld New York expo, Fidelity Media has announced a special bundle of their MegaSeg Pro DJ software with the Griffin iMic USB audio adapter. The combo allows DJs to cue and preview songs in their headphones while simultaneously playing music for a party by adding a second stereo output to their Mac, according to Jason Cox, president of Fidelity.
The free iMic bundle offer is available at
the product Web site. It expires July 23.
MegaSeg is a DJ and radio automation program. Among other things, it features a “Voice-Over” option, which overrides the automatic fade out when a track is segued, allowing for play of prerecorded voice tracks or a QuickTime video over the next song in the Playlist.
Real-time beat mixing is MegaSeg 2.0.1’s headline feature. The mixer interface allows users to mix using automatic or manual cross-fades. An Auto Beat Match button adjusts the next song’s pitch to match the tempo of the current song. Multiple sound output devices are fully supported, for independent main output and headphone cue monitoring, including USB solutions like the Griffin iMic, Roland UA-30, or PowerBook cards such as Digigram’s VXPocket for professional balanced XLR outputs. Beat mixing can also be accomplished using a single stereo output by splitting the left and right channels into two mono channels.
MegaSeg 2.0.1 isn’t limited to audio. It also works as a video automation system for mixing all QuickTime supported video and Flash animations similar to TV stations. MegaSeg allows you to set custom cue-in and out times for media elements, preventing “dead air.” Teamed with Sorenson Broadcaster on a second Mac, and QuickTime Streaming Server software, you can create your own professional online radio or video station, said Cox.
