The MegaSeg mixing and playlist scheduling system gives you total control of your music and video performance. It allows you to customize and simplify your user experience like no other, and perform live segues or beat–mix between music and videos for a professional presentation.
 
MegaSeg is tuned for full–speed power on the latest Macs, and is compatible with multiple audio output devices and MIDI controllers. Featuring fast access to your iTunes music and playlists including direct drag–n–drop from iTunes, a robust set of color coding and library display options, network syncing, automatic playback scheduling, playlist rules including artist separation, and much more!
 
Eye Candy
 The Ambient Video Playlist feature gives you continuous video output. This will automatically display Quicktime or MPEG compatible videos or stills when playing audio only tracks in the main playlist. Connect your Mac to a video projector or second monitor, and keep your audience’s eyes and ears entertained at all times.
Dynamic Music Scheduling
 Use MegaSeg to schedule and automate playback of music, video, and announcements. MegaSeg’s powerful feature set includes intuitive management of song rotation, timed playlist events, instant sound effect with Hot Keys, easy playlist rules for artist separation, request lists, and iTunes compatible playlists.
 
Rock Steady
 System stability is key. Unlike many DJ programs, MegaSeg is built from the ground up to work on the powerful and stable UNIX–based system, Mac OS X. Our customers praise MegaSeg’s rock solid performance, intuitive features, and clean design.
 
Preview Before Play
If you need to cue or preview tracks before you play them, MegaSeg has Multiple Output support for simultaneous Cue and Program channels. With your system’s built–in output and a second USB or FireWire output device, you can preview songs in your headphones at any time. [Read More]
 
Mix It Up
MegaSeg’s real–time beat mixing allows you to mix with automatic or manual cross–fades. The Mixer includes an Auto–BPM button to match the tempo of the next and current songs. With MegaSeg, you are in full control of your mix.
