Numark MIxmeister Studio Fusion Mac PC software

A short time ago, I spent a couple of days with MixMeister for PC. Coming from a traditional and linear mixtape creation approach, I was deeply impressed with how easy it was to easily create a mix in a matter of minutes. But this was on a damned Windows machine, so I politely informed Numark that unless they brought out a version for OS X, I'd cast journalistic integrity to the wind and never ever post anything about Numark again, no matter how life changing it was. Obviously shaken by my threat, they had their code monkeys work 36 hour days to create the Mac version so everyone can now get a taste of MixMeister for themselves.

New Features and Mac OS X Support Deliver Most Powerful DJ Software Ever

Cumberland, R.I. (Jan. 16, 2008 ) – MixMeister, the world’s leading developer of software products for the DJ market, announces MixMeister Fusion and MixMeister Studio 7.2. The Fusion and Studio updates for Windows include streamlined performance and features. This release marks the first Mac versions of MixMeister.

MixMeister Fusion sets the standard for combining live DJ performance with the pinpoint precision of the best studio production software. MixMeister Studio changes the way studio remixes are created. Version 7.2 of both packages includes the following:
  • Native Mac OSX version is universal binary for PowerPC or Intel processors
  • Improved time stretching accurately matches beats with fast or slow tempos
  • Enhanced timeline display provides clear division of measures
  • Effect automation via MIDI controllers – external hardware can now manipulate effect parameters
  • Support for stored EQ settings in transition templates for advanced users
  • “Fade and Cue Next” feature fades and pauses a mix then starts at the next track – prefect for voice over announcements (Fusion only)
  • New master volume control for preview output – headphone and main out can be controlled independently (Fusion only)

Fusion 7.2 lets musicians maintain up to eight songs perfectly beat-matched at all times, enabling improvisation with effects to shape the music in a million ways. Fusion supports harmonic mixing, VST effects, intelligent looping, MIDI hardware controllers and more. Fusion is designed to mix complete DJ sets from full-length songs to achieve the functionality of a loop editor or digital audio workstation, and can blend songs together to create stunning DJ performances.

MixMeister Studio 7.2 is the only digital audio application designed exclusively for high-end mix production projects. Studio gives DJs the ability to make nanosecond tempo adjustments, shift the key of any song, add beat loops and plug-in special effects and much more. MixMeister's innovative visual display allows zoom in on individual beats and measures to make precise adjustments until the mix sounds exactly right. With MixMeister Studio, it’s easy to create commercial-quality DJ mixes and burn them to CD or stream them over the Internet.

Both MixMeister Fusion and MixMeister Studio offer the ability to manipulate tempo, volume and EQ in real time, on-the-fly. Musicians can also add effects and experiment with looping features. Both also record all actions (not just the resulting audio), so DJs can go back, listen to the mix, and make precise adjustments with studio-style editing capabilities.

MixMeister Fusion has a suggested retail price of $329.95, while MixMeister Studio lists at $169.95 Both are perfect for aspiring DJs and professionals alike. MixMeister Fusion and MixMeister Studio are currently available from most musical instrument retailers, and online at

So I'm certainly one happy hack, being able to knock together mixes in no time in an incredibly simple and intuitive OS X interface. Not that I will, but if I wanted to I would OK?

Can't Sony Acid do all of this ?

@DJ NightLife

Sure, everything except the "live" stuff Acid can basically do, but the thing is that Acid is not MAC compatible and probably never will be according to their website...

And what about Ableton Live ?
