Champaign-Urbana, Illinois - Fidelity Media today released an update to their MegaSeg Pro DJ and radio automation system for Mac. The update adds new event options that makes scheduling long-form shows easier by blocking other conflicting events, as well as a new auto-resume option after interrupting a show for station identification or commercial breaks. With more DJs prerecording shows from home, these features enable radio stations more flexibility when scheduling show automation.
The MegaSeg 6.1.2 update also incorporates new log export features for publishing radio shows on NPR member stations, which require playlists in a specific NPR syndicated format. Live streaming stations that use a "seven-second delay" will find a new option useful that delays track metadata to synchronize with audio. For mobile and club DJs, MegaSeg adds new MIDI controller presets for the Roland DJ-707M, Traktor Kontrol S8, and Pioneer DDJ-SB3, with enhancements to others, such as a flashing play button alert when tracks are ending.
Other improvements include showing track info in the decks using your assigned category color, support for more podcast feeds and secure stream playback, resizable request reminder notes, streamlined importing, and optimized library sorting, among others. A recently released MegaSeg 6.1 update introduced 64-bit native support for macOS Catalina, compatibility with the new Music.app which replaced iTunes, video playback optimizations, and hot swappable output devices.
