Algoriddim djay 2 for iOS (teaser 001)

There’s no shortage of apps for DJs on the App Store. For instance, one of the ten apps and games Apple made free as part of its 5 Years of the App Store promo is Traktor DJ (normally a $20 value), an excellent piece of software that appeals to pro DJs. Even the famous iOS hacker pod2g, known for his jailbreak releases, took notice of the trend and created his own app that will make you the star of every party, podDJ.

In my view, Algoriddim’s djay for iPhone and iPad is arguably the best-known and certainly one of the first DJ apps to grace the App Store. Two and a half years following its App Store debut, the successor to djay is coming soon to an iPhone and iPad near you, Algoriddim confirmed Thursday. I’ve included a nicely done promo vid after the break…

Check out the promo.

There’s not much we can learn from the video, but we’ll keep you posted as Algoriddim publishes more information in the run-up to the release.

For now, you can register your interest here.

The existing $0.99 djay for iPhone (down from $4.99 for a limited time) and $4.99 djay for iPad transforms your device into a full-fledged portable turntable tightly integrated with your music library and featuring a hyper-realistic touchscreen interface, ultra-low latency converge and Automix mode for a pro mixing experience.

And to accompany your live mixes, Algoriddim has another app for the iPhone and iPad called vjay that replicates a premium video mixing machine experience.

Both the $9.99 iPhone and $2.99 iPhone edition support wireless AirPlay streaming and external hardware like Griffin’s DJ cable and Numark’s iDJ Live controller, while tapping your device’s GPU to enable powerful on-the-fly video mashups.

    A gimmick. This is for amateurs. Anyone serious about their craft wouldn’t use this. Hardware alternatives are more reliable and work better.

      I’m a vinyl junkie but sadly this is the future. CDJs and midi will eventually die out as well. Times change.

  • Sorry, Christian.
    Don’t take it too hard, but for me as DJ from Berlin, playing in famous Berlin clubs like Golden Gate, Suicide Circus, Cookies, etc, using an app like this is a No-No.

    And by reading this:
    “(…) Automix mode for a pro mixing experience (…)”
    I ask myself if it’s really true? Do You believe that an Automix mode is pro mixing?
    If so, I’d be rather disappointed since it abandons 30 years of turntablism.

      i remember when DJs would say the analog turn table was the only way to go the they all witched to CD decks.. the the CD deck DJS said macs were a nono.. lolo now the mac dejs are saying the ipad use is a nono…lol humans a silly

    I love the DJay app especially with the split output on and hooked up to a mixer. I’m no “DJ” so I guess I’ll never understand why they feel like using an iPad app is a joke. If you ask me, using a laptop is really no different.

    • Dani Hayes

      I’ve been doing it for about 12 years now. A dj should use what ever they can to benefit of the mix. I remember an instance I had to use my iPod nano just to mix a song I had on there.

      But yes complaining about what one uses to mix is completely futile. Just because it started on vinyl doesn’t mean it should stay on vinyl people.

    As a DJ myself, this is only useful for let’s say the amateurs small house party – where you want to chill and enjoy the party – you put a playlist up and then this app remixes that playlist – crossfading – etc.

    Vinyl DJs laughed @ CDJs, saying that’s not real DJing. CDJs did the same to Digital (Software [Mac] DJs). Digital is the way forward, but handheld is not.
