Choice is good

It seems that Mixvibes has decided on the slowly but surely approach, and has added and perfected one element at a time. And now we’re at the vinyl hurdle, where all the elements have come together to make one complete does-everything family of products.

We’re putting the finishing touches to our Cross review — Jared is doing most of it, and I get the honour of trying out the DVS part. That’ll be ready in the next couple of weeks, but in the mean time, you can download a fully functioning demo and try it for yourself.
