djay Pro for Mac gains deep Pioneer DJ integration, Touch Bar improvements & more

Algoriddim’s Apple Design Award-winning djay Pro for macOS was updated on Mac App Store today with Pioneer DJ integration and other improvements. The app is now officially certified by Pioneer DJ to be used with their high end gear, including CDJ-2000NXS2/Tour setups via plug and play. “To our knowledge, djay Pro is the first third-party app to support Pioneer DJ’s Pro DJ Link technology, which means users connect up to four CDJs with their Pioneer mixer and control djay Pro through a single USB cable (mixer to Mac),” Algoriddim’s Michael Simmons told me in an email message.

djay Pro for iPhone is out: 4-deck mixing, waveform haptics, 3D Touch cue points & more

German developer Algoriddim today completed its lineup of apps for DJs by releasing djay Pro for iPhone following the launch of djay Pro for iPad a year ago and djay Pro for Mac two years ago.

The app puts the complete djay experience in the palm of your hand and provides some iPhone 7-specific features, like unique haptic feedback that lets you literally feel the beats while scratching and scrubbing the music, support for 3D Touch so you can quickly set a cue point by pressing and more.

djay Pro for iPhone is available on the App Store at the introductory sale price of $4.99.

Apple’s massive tablet gets its killer app: djay Pro for iPad Pro is here

The iPad Pro has just received what could be described as a killer app in the form of German developer Algoriddim’s djay Pro, a brand new iPad-exclusive apps for both pro and aspiring DJs which launched this morning in the App Store.

Joining Algoriddim’s existing djay Pro for Mac, djay 2 for iPhone and djay 2 for iPad apps, djay Pro for iPad replicates the productivity of its Mac counterpart with extensive support for more than 70 keyboard shortcuts and iOS 9’s Split View and Slide Over multitasking modes.

More importantly, the software takes full advantage of the iPad Pro’s A9X chip to deliver pristine sound quality, desktop-class performance and features like high-definition waveforms, four decks, and video mixing with 4K support—all in real-time and without ever skipping a beat.

djay 2 introduces Force Touch trackpad support, automatic transitions on Apple Watch and more

German developer Algoriddim has refreshed its award-winning mixing and scratching application for DJs with support for force-sensing technology on Mac notebooks outfitted with Force Touch trackpad, tighter Apple Watch integration and many other perks mentioned below. In addition, djay 2 for iPhone and djay 2 for Mac both received support for the Reloop Beatpad 2 MIDI controller.

djay Pro for Mac gains live video mixing, native Pioneer CDJ/XDJ integration and much more

In addition to transforming the Apple Watch into the world’s first wearable DJ controller with djay for Apple Watch, German developer Algoriddim also refreshed its Mac app this morning.

Djay Pro 1.1 for Mac, the company’s flagship product, includes major new features such as real-time video mixing, native support for Pioneer’s CDJ and XDJ line-up of professional digital decks used by the likes of David Guetta, high-quality Spotify streaming with up to 320 kbps and a host of other advanced features and capabilities.

You can now create mixes from Spotify tracks in Algoriddim’s djay for iPhone and iPad

Germany-based Algoriddim – which develops the popular djay software for the iPhone [$1.99], iPad [$9.99] and Mac [$19.99] – today announced a major partnership with Swedish startup Spotify, which operates the world’s leading streaming-music service.

Spotify Premium subscribers and DJ wannabes can now mix any of the more than twenty million Spotify tracks, right inside djay for the iPhone and iPad. This seamless integration extends to such advanced features as Automix Radio, Spotify Match, desktop-class audio effects and pro-grade DJ hardware integration, to name a few.

The newly introduced capabilities are available via a major update to djay for the iPhone and iPad. Based on my brief hands-on time with djay for iPad, I can safely say that Spotify integration has just become a major selling point for these kinds of apps, here’s why…

Djay 2 picks up new features, Traktor DJ and Cross DJ go half price

The App Store and Mac App Store are home to plenty of apps for novice and pro DJs alike. Algoriddim’s djay 2 (read our review) and Native Instruments’ Traktor DJ are among the finest examples of how a tablet can be used to double as a virtual turntable for mixing tracks in real-time.

I’ve seen a number of DJs hook up their iPad to pro equipment and mix tracks from their iTunes library as if it were second nature. To be perfectly clear, I suck at DJing and have no interest in it.

Those who dig DJing, however, are advised to take a look at the just-updated djay 2 for the iPhone and iPad or take advantage of a time-limited discount on Traktor DJ for the iPhone and iPad. I also mention another notable discount on a similar app, Cross DJ for Mac. Jump past the break for the full reveal…

Algoriddim launches djay 2 for iPhone and iPad

Algoriddim has launched its highly anticipated djay 2 app for the iPhone and iPad this morning. The title is the sequel to the studio’s popular, and what some believe to be the best, DJ app of the same name, and it brings about tons of new features and improvements.

Among those new features is a built-in sampler—complete with 12 pads and recorder—HD waveforms, an all new slip mode that lets you scratch without ruining your session, and enhanced hardware controller support. More details and screenshots after the fold…

Algoriddim previews djay 2, coming soon to iPhone and iPad

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…
