SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - May 6, 2014) - Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), a leading developer of state-of-the-art interactive music products, today announced the availability of a new software build of Virtual DJ LE, which was tailor made by Atomix Productions, for use with its latest Beamz interactive music controllers.
This new version of Virtual DJ LE software features a unique dashboard skin that mirrors the design of Beamz interactive laser controllers. It also provides new mixing functionality and controls so that aspiring DJs may have a great experience using Beamz as their first controller with the award winning Virtual DJ software. As aspiring DJs develop their remixing skills and desire more functionality, there is an upgrade path offered in the application to the Virtual DJ Pro version of the software.
"We are pleased to announce our latest collaboration with the award winning Virtual DJ software," said Al Ingallinera, Jr. Vice President of Product Management. "Virtual DJ is an ideal application for consumers to remix music with Beamz controllers, which are naturally designed for friends and family to easily jump into the fun of music making. Remixing music with Virtual DJ provides our customers with yet another immersive experience to our growing interactive music offering."
Beamz Interactive began its strategic collaboration with Atomix Productions in 2013 with the objective to offer easy-to-use, powerful DJ remixing software for consumers to get started with a minimal learning curve using the Beamz controller. The enhancements in the latest Virtual DJ software release improve the users experience by adding functionality so that consumers can control the most often used features of the Virtual DJ software solely from the Beamz controller. This build of software communicates to the Beamz controller via MIDI and is significantly more responsive compared with the first generation build of the software.
To introduce consumers to the many entry-level DJ concepts and specific techniques, Beamz Interactive has made a series of tutorial videos regarding how to use Beamz with the feature rich Virtual DJ software. The tutorial series includes detailed walkthroughs regarding setting up cue points, using effects, making loops and other topics to guide a first time user to the point of remixing their own music using the Beamz controller. For an overview of the tutorial topics, watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5N9ubebb2ko.
The special compiled Virtual DJ LE version for Beamz controllers is offered to consumers in a bundle product offering for $279.95.
