Fidelity Media today announced the release of MegaSeg 6.2.2, their professional DJ and radio automation app for Mac. This update adds 60 improvements to the over 110 improvements since 6.2 was released last October, which featured support for macOS Monterey with a resigned dark mode and better accessibility.
Changes in MegaSeg 6.2.2 include new MIDI maps for Numark and Hercules DJ controllers, the ability to add comment tags to Insert URL events, support for capturing metadata from more streams, better feedback when dropping tracks from Music.app, optimized importing of large folders, precise ‘time-to-play’ in the queue, better support for moving multi-selected tracks using shortcuts, faster preview playback, and optimized scheduling of very long playlists.
With a focus on squashing bugs and improving stability, this release also refined and fixed issues including restoring Apple Music’s original volume after each use, the Library’s title sort now groups artists and duplicates, the folders view and missing files reports support multi-select, and various stability fixes during drag-and-drop, app launching, switching, and quitting, among other fixes.
Native support for Apple Silicon M1 chips was another key feature recently added, as well as a video preview within the edit dialog to set custom chapter markers, the category list displays assigned colors, cue sheet metadata support for long mix tracks, exporting radio station logs to SoundExchange, and the ability to automatically insert podcasts directly from Apple Podcasts.
