Why Upgrade?

MixEmergency 3 has been highly optimised.

A lot of work has gone into MixEmergency 3 to make it the faster, more efficient, and lighter on your system than ever before. Once you consider the benefits of this, upgrading is a no-brainer.

Free up your CPU.

On some laptops MixEmergency uses almost no CPU. This may allow you to run additional applications, use more advanced DJing features, or just give you peace-of-mind that you have CPU to spare should you have any problems.

Keep your laptop longer.

Older laptops can have trouble keeping up as video pools release more HD video content. The optimisations in MixEmergency 3 can offload a lot of work to your GPU, meaning that you may not need to upgrade your laptop just yet.

Lower temperatures.

MixEmergency 3's optimisations will help to make your computer run a lot cooler. Cooling fan speeds can be reduced, and overall it will put a lot less stress on your hardware when you're spending hours Video DJing.

Amazing performance.

MixEmergency 3 has had extensive testing across a range of Mac computers and even recent (2012) models of the MacBook Air have been more than capable of mixing Full HD videos.

There's no longer a need to buy a high-end model for basic HD video mixing.

How much will my computer benefit?

CPU Usage of MixEmergency 2 vs. MixEmergency 3*

It's hard to say exactly how much your specific computer will benefit from this, as results depend on a large number of factors (for example, the dimensions and bitrate of the videos that you're playing).

To take full advantage of the latest optimisations your hardware needs to be capable of decoding H.264 video on the GPU. For Full HD Video DJing it is recommended that your computer has, at minimum, an Intel HD 4000 GPU.
