Algoriddim has jumped on the hardware-specific, free-version bandwagon by releasing djay LE, a bundled version of its Mac-only software designed to be supplied with specific DJ controllers, to give new users a chance to try it out.
Currently available for the Numark Mixdeck Quad and the Pioneer DDJ-WeGO, but no doubt coming soon for a DJ controller near you, the software is relatively full featured, with only recording and automix disabled.
However, you do need to have the DJ controller the software was supplied with plugged in (so no mixing straight from the laptop).
More about djay
djay is a slick, very Apple-esque DJ program that while feeling very polished, also packs increasing power under the surface – its two-deck approach has a well integrated music library and has some pretty good effects nowadays as well as harmonic matching built in.
• The software is available for download now for Mixdeck Quad and DDJ-WeGO owners, from the Algoriddim website.
