When you’re a professional disc jockey, you definitely want to minimize how much gear you have to haul around in your kit. Even with as light as a Macbook Air is, wouldn’t it be nice if djay, the best-selling DJ app for Mac, was available on an iPad, instead? With Algoriddim’s latest release to the App Store, djay Pro, that powerful software not only arrives on the tablet, but leverages the advanced audio and video capabilities of the iPad Pro.
Sophisticated desktop-class features
At the heart of djay Pro is a suite of features that includes four decks, HD waveforms, and even 4K video mixing. Djay Pro, built upon the foundation of the Apple Design Award-winning app djay, allows you to mix up to four audio tracks with up to two simultaneous 4K video streams. The output, according to Algoriddim, gives you pristine sound quality and brilliant video in full HD at 60 frames per second.
True multitasking support
Algoriddim hasn’t forgotten about preparation and performance workflows, either. The new djay Pro takes advantage of iOS 9’s advanced multitasking capabilities, using Slide Over, Split View and Portrait modes to allow DJs to have another app open and active at the same time that they’re mixing and spinning tracks. Need to take notes about a tracklist or write down song requests on-the-fly? With djay Pro, that’s possible.
A DJ app that integrates fully with the iPad Pro
In addition to its excellent audio and video mixing properties, djay Pro has a modern, innovative user interface that’s as flexible as you need it to be. It even incorporates the iPad Pro’s Smart Keyboard, offering you access to more than 70 keyboard shortcuts for cue points, looping, library navigation, search, and more.
Full integration with your music library and Spotify
If you have Spotify Premium, djay Pro affords you instant access to more than 20 million songs. You can pull in playlists, songs, and charts, or just browse the library for ideas. Through the cloud, you get instant access to beats per minute and key information, and The Echo Nest can provide you with cloud-based song recommendations. The djay Pro app also integrates with your music library, but remember that there are difficulties with Apple Music and third-party programs.
There’s more, so much more
Algoriddim has packed so many features into this app that it’s almost impossible to list them all. Our own Bryan Wolfe will be offering a full review of djay Pro in the coming days, so stay tuned. In the meantime, you can download djay Pro on the App Store for a limited-time price of $19.99. It’s compatible with iPad only, and requires iOS 8 or later.
