What is a DJ without hot tracks? Because finding the right track to play next is the first responsibility of a DJ, CROSS is focused on media management and interface simplicity. CROSS introduces an intuitive advanced media management system: full iTunes integration, multiple tag edit, artwork browsing, smart media preview, missing media manager, and multiple playlist visualization. Organize and edit your tags and artwork using the info tab. Create or edit playlists on the fly and auto-mix them, that is, if you need to take a breather from the decks. Easily relocate missing files and update your media collection. CROSS also enables you to detect an external hard drive on the fly and start playing tracks from it during your set. The endless possibilities to browse, locate, filter, edit, and classify your media bring DJs even closer to their performance and to their audience.
The iTunes integration is one of CROSS' most unique features. CROSS fully assimilates the iTunes library allowing importation of playlists and artwork cover management. The look and feel of iTunes software is reproduced in CROSS to enhance the ease of use. It's now simpler than ever to prepare and edit your playlists with iTunes.
CROSS is built around a a high-end audio engine to deliver high quality industry-standard features, such as hot cues and auto beat loops, while the deck layout is based on acclaimed DJ hardware bestsellers. The state of the art Z-plane Master Tempo technology ensures an excellent sound quality even for drastic BPM (beats per minute) changes (±20%), while the exclusive hybrid mode ensures a smart transition between master tempo and speed mode to avoid digital distortion at extreme pitch values. DJing various styles and BPMs without compromising on sound quality becomes fun and easy with CROSS.

Track time display: Check where exactly you are within your track with the time display at the bottom of the waveform, in order to better set your locations points, loops, etc.
Blinking cue: Enjoy the blinking cue button as it is shown on most major DJ hardware and on the ones you're used to.
2 cue modes: Cue the stop and the play buttons, whether you only wish to prepare your cue, or whether you've already set it and are ready to go.
Cue auto save: Cue points are now automatically saved within every CROSS track. There's no need to additionally save your collection because everything is saved on the go.
Font display: Huge display of the track's information (time elapsed, remaining, BPM, pitch) so the DJ can focus on his mix without forgetting that his track is coming to an end and miss his transition.
Change scroll mode: Whether you prefer the waveform to move, or the scroll line itself, you have the option to choose. Mix and enjoy the scrolling of the waveform itself or scratch and see what you're doing more precisely thanks to a fast and accurately moving scroll bar.

Gain display: In addition to the mixer gain, CROSS implements an individual track gain to let you adjust the gain more accurately.
3 pitch modes: Like every DJ application, CROSS integrates both classic speed and master tempo pitch modes. But, unlike every DJ application, CROSS also includes a third pitch mode, called hybrid that aims to avoid distortions during your mix. You can activate it manually or the hybrid mode will switch itself on automatically for you if you change the pitch in a drastic way.

First, choose the desired pitch range and then you can either increment or decrement the pitch by as accurately as 0.01 points to get to the speed of the other media, or change the pitch temporarily in order to sync both tracks hint by hint (nudge).
Finally, easily reset your pitch by pressing the "o" button. You can even tap the beat by clicking the BPM area during 4 beats to determine it.
Smart Seek: Tired of looking for the right spot in a song by clicking the waveform? Use the smart seek feature to jump through your track, for example, 2 measures by 2. What's more, you can determine the number of times (1, 2, 4, 8, or 16).

This section can be ideally controlled thanks to an external control unit for optimized ease of use.

While you're in a loop, click the + or - buttons to change the value of the loop. Click smart seek to move your loop before playing it.
