With a few clicks the “Mobile DJ 2.0″ is able to show pictures of the event on big screen, announces the opening of the buffet via live text or start spontaneous karaoke rounds.

To use “UltraMixer 4 Pro Video” optimal, we present to you the technical and hardware requirement you will need to rock the crowd. UltraMixer DJ “André Mangold” presented to you his own DJ equipment and shares his own experience with his hardware.

System requirements

For Windows users:

Intel Core 2 Duo or higher / 2GB RAM / sound card

Graphics card Nvidia 8400, ATI 1650 or better

Windows XP or higher

QuickTime 7.7.3 or later

For Mac users:

Mac OS X

 10.8, 10.9, 10.10 or later

For a cool multimedia show and to output the video signal you will need a Beamer (projector) or alternatively, a flat screen TV.

André Mangold, long-term user of UltraMixer presented to us on this subject today its latest technology and hardware setting.

“My current DJ set consists of the MIDI controller” Denon HC 4500, “UltraMixer 4 Pro Video Windows, and a video-hardware installation. My projector of choice is the 2014 Optoma HD131Xe. The DLP projector offers 1920 x 1080 pixels Full HD resolution in 16:9 format. Its light output is 2500 lumens, which is entirely adequate. With its 26 db loudness it is of no problem during the sound operation. Connections = 2x HDMI 1x VGA 1x USB Type B 1x video. For mobile use, I recommend a tripod screen of 2.00 mx 2.00 m, but everyone has to decide it for theirselves, depending on the room and the distance from the projector you need a different screensize. I recommend everyone a projection calculation, because that plays a big role in the use of projectors and screens. At the event, i pay attention on the following points

  • stable placement of projector and screen
  • lighting in the room
  • possibility to darken the room
  • wiring of the projector (length of HDMI or VGA cable for HDMI signals there are already wireless solutions)

Intelligent groups the key to more variety or a good theme night!

9. May 2014

Intelligent groups are new in UltraMixer 4. An intelligent group (sometimes called “smart group”) is a terrific way to manage information in your music libary.

These groups allow you to define your own selection criteria. After defining your file archive it will be filtered by the selection criteria

and the target music files will be shown in the intelligent group. If there are changes in the file archive the intelligent groups will be refreshed automatically.

The big advantage of an intelligent group over a regular group is that when you add new tracks, that song automatically becomes a member of your UltraMixer intelligent group with no further interaction on your part.

UM Intelligent groups

According to which criteria the selection of the title is done, the user can define and combine freely. For example if you plan a 90′s party, you can create a group with the characteristic, year “from to” 1990 – 2000.

UltraMixer now searches your complete file archive for these attributes and sorts the songs automatically. You can now create groups for everything. Discofox evenings or greek night for example. Simply select the appropriate attribute and there you go.

Intelliget groups look different to the user groups they have a group icon. They can easily been edited by double-clicking on the group.

Martin has prepared you a little clip (only in German) to illustrate (see link below).

Happy Mixing!
