[prMac.com] Champaign-Urbana, Illinois – Fidelity Media released MegaSeg 6.1 today, an important update to their MegaSeg Pro DJ and Radio Automation Software for Mac, which adds support for Apple’s newest Mac operating system, macOS Catalina 10.15. The MegaSeg 6.1 update also features various improvements, including 64-bit native support on macOS 10.13 and higher, support for the new Music.app which replaces iTunes on Catalina, video playback optimizations, and hot swappable outputs devices. A recently released MegaSeg 6.0.9 update also included several additional improvements, such as faster library operations, improved FLAC importing, support for file tracking on APFS volumes, type-to-select fixes, and event programming enhancements.
Many people have been concerned about Apple’s removal of the iTunes app in Catalina, especially DJs. However, Fidelity Media is putting minds at ease. “The iTunes app is getting a much needed makeover by moving the non-music related portions of iTunes into separate TV and Podcasts apps, and renaming iTunes to simply Music,” said Jason Cox, president of Fidelity Media. “The new Music app will be very familiar, and work about the same as iTunes–Just with less clutter. All your existing iTunes music and playlists will be intact. You can even still purchase music from the iTunes Store within the Music app.”

* Added support for macOS Catalina 10.15
* Works with the new Music.app which replaces iTunes on Catalina
* MegaSeg 6.1 is now 64-bit native for macOS 10.13 and higher
