DJs who own an iPad 2 should rejoice! Algorridim’s djay for iPad app is now fully optimized for the iPad 2, taking advantage of the iDevice’s high-performance dual-core processor thanks to an update. Version 1.2 of djay for iPad is the first update that offers improvements only available for iPad 2 users. These include the introduction of supreme quality Time-Stretching (Key Lock) and an improved higher precision audio analysis. The first lets a user change the tempo of a song without affecting its pitch. The second is said to improve syncing, BPM detection, beat-grid, and waveform precision. Another feature, Loop / Cue snapping, auto-aligns to the closest snare, base drum, etc. Improved playback of recordings and other minor tweaks for all iPad models are also part of the update.
