Algoriddim has today released the latest successor to their DJ software, now powered by machine learning. djay Pro 2 for Mac is available now and introduces Automix AI, a new photo integration, more in-depth media library management, accessibility features baked-in, and a whole new audio engine.
Algoriddim has ported its popular djay Pro software from iOS to Windows 10 for the first time. djay Pro will still be developed on iOS and the Mac using the latest platform features like Touch Bar support for example, and today’s release expands Algoriddim’s reach from iOS/watchOS, macOS, and Android to Windows.
Algoriddim actually relied greatly on djay Pro for iOS to bring the professional DJ software to Windows…
Algoriddim’s djay Pro for Mac already touts impressive features like four track support, Spotify integration, and iCloud sync, and now djay Pro for Mac has been officially certified by Pioneer DJ. That means djay Pro now works with Pioneer DJ’s Pro DJ Link technology so you can easily mix with their high-end gear.

A year ago Algoriddim introduced djay Pro to Mac, the professional version of the company’s highly popular DJ software that ever beginners can love, and today djay Pro is coming to iPad. It’s a whole new app for the tablet with a super clean look, loads of new features, and a highly responsive design. That means features like Split View and Slide Over totally work, letting you mix in djay Pro and actually use a second app alongside it. And while djay Pro is one of the first pro class apps to hit the iPad Pro where it really shines, it’s fully available on newer iPads as well. Check it out:

Algoriddim, the team behind the popular music mixing app djay, first shipped the commercial version of its flagship app in 2007 on the Mac followed by the iPad version in 2010 and the iPhone version in 2011. Adding to the history of djay, today Algoriddim is launching djay for Android through the Google Play Store and Amazon App Store making the app its first on Google’s platform.
While djay is rooted in digital music mixing on the Mac then iOS, the new Android version is just as desktop class with high quality music playback and real time analyzing and mixing. Better yet, djay for Android packs in deep Spotify integration from day one–the iOS version first added up Spotify integration earlier this year–which means you have access to over 20 million songs for mixing together and playback.

We’ve covered Algoriddim’s djay for iOS, the popular all-in-one DJ system software, in the past including the debut of djay 2, and today djay is out with a major new feature that unlocks over 20 million songs: Spotify integration. Previously, the DJ app relied solely on songs downloaded and stored in the iPhone or iPad Music app. The latest version of djay focuses on music access and discovery and also includes set list sharing using Spotify playlists as well as more than 30 new audio effects to unlock within the app. I’ve had the opportunity to test drive the new version of djay with Spotify integration over the past week, and it’s definitely a major benefit to users of the DJ system software. expand full story

“How can we create high quality, easy-to-use software for both professional and novice DJs?”
That’s the question that inspired co-founders Karim and Christoph to make Algoriddim’s djay, the award-winning music production software. At the time, DJ software was extremely expensive and complex, but the pair were determined to create meaningful change in an industry they were both tremendously passionate about. While they both enjoyed the art of scratching, in between attending classes and studying for exams at college, the two had vastly different skill levels.
Karim was the expert. With ten years of experience under his belt, Karim had his fair share of knowledge about the industry and had used some of the most popular DJ software available. But with every gig he played, Karim found each solution clunky and downright confounding. He could manage, as digital software proved to have a superior functionality compared to his old analog favorites, but the situation wasn’t even close to ideal.
Christoph, on the other hand, had an extraordinary admiration for DJing, but didn’t have the experience or expertise of his buddy Karim. No matter what software he tried, Christoph was often puzzled as most professional software featured an overwhelming set of controls and required an insanely high level of manual skill, which made performing all the more difficult.
As such, the duo wanted to make something new; software that they and similar people could both use. expand full story

Algoriddim’s ‘djay’ apps get Audiobus support alongside new features & enhancements
Following Apple’s decision to update GarageBand with support for the inter-app audio routing system known as “Audiobus”, the popular djay apps by developer Algoriddim have been updated with Audiobus support alongside a long list of new features.
On top of support for the Pioneer DDJ-WeGO and DDJ-ERGO controllers through the Pioneer DJC-WeCAi iPad Connection Cable for the iPad version of the app, both the iPhone and iPad djay apps get the following new features and enhancements:
What’s New in Version 1.6.4

See http://audiob.us for more information ✔ Added support for Pioneer DDJ-WeGO and DDJ-ERGO controllers (requires Pioneer DJC-WeCAi iPad Connection Cable, sold separately) ✔ “Shuffle” setting is now also applied to Automix Queue ✔ Pause audio when disconnecting headphones or dock audio ✔ Gain is no longer reset when “Reset EQ” setting is off ✔ Allow sliding crossfader up after tapping to leave it centered ✔ Improved handling of iOS audio system errors ✔ Improved caching ✔ Improved Vestax Spin 2 mapping: allow tempo fine-adjust using Shift & +/– buttons ✔ Changed ION iDJ 2 Go jog wheels to scratch during playback (the previous pitch-bend behavior can be enabled using “Jog Pitch Bend Mode” in the MIDI settings) ✔ Fixed playback issue after loading error with specific files ✔ Fixed audio distortion when using Key Lock with Bluetooth audio ✔ Fixed lock screen audio controls starting both turntables ✔ Fixed possible crash when editing Automix Queue while Automix is active ✔ Bug fixes, performance and stability improvements
Algoriddim even updated its vjay apps that allow users to mix music and videos with many of the new features—minus Audiobus support—included in the djay updates.
