The DJ edition also includes the same waveform visualizer and Magic Trackpad beat synchronizing features recently introduced in MegaSeg 5.5.
The new Pro edition adds video playback for VJs and many power features for pro DJs, such as instant sound effects, request lists, track color coding, library tools, and deep features for radio stations, TV broadcasters, and business background music, including automated playlist generation, scheduling, and track separation rules. Fidelity Media also announced year-end sale pricing of up to 33% off through December 31st, with MegaSeg DJ and Pro editions now $99 and $199 (regularly $149 and $249).
