Having got over the very important hurdle of official Serato support, Inklen is very happy to announce that MixEmergency 2.6 can now offer Mixer FX. Essentially it’s a very focussed mapping ME features on MIDI compatible mixers that lets you do a heap of customisation to suit your needs.
That’s not all — there’s a list of helpful additions as well as a necessary amount of bug squishing. The list is as follows:
Added new Mixer FX feature.
Added compatibility with 14-bit MIDI messages.
Added a right-click menu to the Media Bank, allowing users to Delete, Reveal in Finder, or Clear the entire Media Bank.
Added value displays to the edges of all Mapping Graphs for easier editing.
Added abbreviated labels to Preset and Control window tabs for easier identification.
Added dragging of Preset files from the Finder into the Preset List to import them.
Added Copy and Paste to the right-click menu for presets.
Added automatic thumbnail generation for items in the Media Bank (accessed through the right-click menu).
Added a progress bar when importing the MixEmergency recording file for export.
Random transition changes now trigger a Transition notification.
The MIDI learn pop-up window now hides after learning a new control.
The up and down arrow keys can now be used to navigate within the lists of the Presets window.
Optimised the following effects: Brightness, Bump, Hue, Kaleidoscope, Pixellate, Posterize, Saturation, Sepia Tone, Zoom.
Reduced RAM usage when exporting a recording.
Custom export dimensions now have their width value rounded to the closest multiple of 4 to avoid a potential crash.
Fixed an issue where the underlying beat grid would not align correctly when playing media in MixEmergency and a MP3, M4A, AIFF, or WAV file in Serato DJ/Scratch Live.
Fixed file path issues when using Serato DJ or the latest versions of Scratch Live.
Fixed a bug that could cause a crash after loading many Quartz Compositions containing the Movie Importer patch.
Fixed a bug where the One-Shot modes of the FX Sequencer could trigger in some cases.
Fixed a bug that could cause the recording function to record more data than necessary for the FX Sequencer.
Fixed several potential memory leaks.
It’s considerably easier to watch the above video than have me wibble out an explanation. Needless to say MixEmergency 2.6 users with MIDI mixers are going to be very pleased with this release. And Nick from Inklen tells me that this is just the start of such functionality. Onwards and upwards.
