A main difference is the improved analog circuitry improving the audio quality as well as the professional micprohone preamplifier with XLR input. Here is a quote: Firstly, typing into the “search filter” box will display tracks containing that text – and this can be set to filter by title, artist, filename or any other field. Secondly, tracks can be sorted by any of the fields by clicking on the column headers in the mediabase – handy for getting a BPM-sorted list so you can find tracks with a similar tempo easily. Scanning even huge music libraries takes almost no time at all less than 20 seconds for 20Gb of mp3s on my system.

The sampler works rather like an MPC – you get sixteen “pads” onto which audio files and loops can be loaded onto.
I also tried it on three different computers two running XP, one ssi vista and had no problems with compatibility or drivers. Like many DJ apps, Mixvibes is by default visually split into two sections.
When first run, Mixvibes runs a wizard to help you set up your audio hardware. Looping works much the same as other programs – you use the “in” and “out” buttons to define the start and end of the loop, and hit “out” again to stop it looping. Media management is arguably the most important feature of any DJ application, and a poor implementation can easily ruin an otherwise perfect DJ program.
It does however offer complete configuration over all parameters and commands, and some fairly advanced stuff can be done here. Here is a quote of the summary: The main interface Installing Mixvibes is very straight forward, much the same as every other windows application.
This can either be done by dragging them in from the mediabase, or clicking the “SEND” button on one of the players. However, one solution that is often overlooked by DJs is one that has been around longer than any of them, and whose creators claim to have coined the term “DVS”. It works real fine for me. New users and people who don’t need the more advanced features would benefit from the “CARBON Simple” skin – which has transport controls, the waveform display, and not a whole lot else.
A main difference is the improved analog circuitry improving the ei quality as well as the professional micprohone preamplifier with XLR input. The knobs and buttons feel reassuringly solid, and the RCA and USB connectors don’t seem like they’ll come loose after a few gigs.
This was previously quite mm2 to do within Mixvibes Handily, the pitch change is displayed in semitones to aid in harmonic mixing – if you know what key the currently playing track mkk2 written in, you can transpose the next track to match so there are no horrible clashes. The pads can of course be assigned to MIDI controllers, so if you have an M-Audio Trigger Finger or similar, you can use that to lay down live drum beats or play one-shot samples with ease.
Loops can be stored in any of the eight “loop memory” buttons and will be saved along with the track to the mediabase, so perfectly timed loops can be set up ahead of time.
SKRATCHWORX – Mixvibes DVS pack MKII Review by Rasteri – July
There are now eai distinct product lines in the Mixvibes range. A third stereo input would have been handy for recording mixes, but since Mixvibes offers no option for this anyway it’s a moot point.
I didn’t have a copy handy to compare, but I’m told Serato can achieve 7ms. Latency is a key word with DVSs, and what is considered an acceptable amount rather depends on the kind of DJ rsi are.

How much of a problem this is entirely depends on how you intend to use it – since all CDs and most mp3s are encoded at Scratch performance is good, perhaps a touch laggy on intricate scratches, but certainly acceptable for general purpose cutting.
The top section is for the two audio players, and the bottom houses the song library. There are some problems, however. Users could edit the mappings, but this had to be done from a separate program, and this is far from an acceptable solution. Secondly, tracks can be sorted by any of the fields by clicking on the column headers in the mediabase – handy for getting a BPM-sorted list so you can find tracks with a similar tempo easily.
All the tweaks have been made to the lappy from all the pro’s as far as shutting things down, the lappy pretty much is a stand along for VDJ with the exception of the wifi.

This causes the pitch fader and transport buttons to be disabled, and starts displaying the timecode detection quality in a mk22 box so you know when rsi clean your needles. The decision to add the latter is a fantastic idea – many DJs still claim they can hear the difference between even a k mp3 and a CD, but since FLAC uses lossless compression, it may persuade a few technological holdouts to switch to the digital world.
There are also 6 independent individual outputs on the backside, perfect for multi-channel playback applications like to provide individual outputs for software synthesizers, to provide independent playback channels for DJ software or to provide surround playback capability via a 5.
Most skins come in both and pixel wide versions, and many more skins can be downloaded from the Mixvibes website. Right clicking resets the selected cue point. It also has a rather nifty routing screen based on ESI’s DirectWIRE technologywhich can be used to “wire up” the various inputs and outputs to each other – this flexibility is likely to be a godsend to producers and DJs alike.
