Algoriddim has announced a notable update to the company’s popular djay 2 app for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. Version 2.6 introduces an all-new collaboration between Algoriddim and General Electric (GE) that features a bundle of original mechanical sounds.
The free “GE Drop Science Pack” is a byproduct of GE’s recent partnership with musician Matthew Dear to create “Drop Science,” a new electronic track based on sound samples from GE research centers around the world. The pack includes 12 sounds that can be used to remix or mashup songs.
According to Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim:
We’re thrilled to partner with GE to provide djay users with unique sounds that are inspired by GE machines. These sounds will give DJs new ways of expression and we can’t wait to see what our users will come up with.
