The folks at Algoriddim have sent out updates for both djay 2 for iPhone and djay 2 for iPad, adding a handful of useful features which promise to make both apps better than ever. You can pick up the updated iPhone application for $1.99, and djay 2 for iPad is available for the higher price of $9.99.
You'll probably be using djay 2 to create bass-heavy tracks, and the good news is that as of the apps' most recent update, a newly added “audio limiter” means sound distortion should be a thing of the past – no matter how high your volume levels (or bass levels) climb.
Automix has also been enhanced in the update, and improvements include “the option to select albums, to only use songs from queue, or to use current playlist selection in library as the source (e.g. history, artists, genres, etc.),” according to the apps' release notes.
As Algoriddim explains, here's a complete list of changes made to djay 2:
- Sound: added audio limiter, no more distortion no matter how much you turn up the bass, filter, effects, etc. (turn on/off in Settings > Advanced)
- Effects: fixed volume drop
- Key detection: added setting to turn harmonic match on/off (Settings > Audio Analysis)
- Automix: many improvements including the option to select albums, to only use songs from queue, or to use current playlist selection in library as the source (e.g. history, artists, genres, etc.)
- Queue: added setting to keep songs in the queue after they are played (Settings > Library)
- New gesture: swipe down the load button to automatically play the next track from your current playlist selection
- Enhanced song loading menu: available using tap-and-hold on load button
Less crucial bug fixes and performance improvements have also been applied in the update, too.
Algoriddim launched djay 2 last summer, adding a ton of new features to its iPhone and iPad apps, and redesigning them from the ground up. We published a hands-on video outlining djay 2 last year, and if you're new to the apps we'd recommend you check our video out.
