In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through your first encounter with Algoriddim’s djay Pro. Developed specifically for OSX, djay Pro is the only professional DJ software that’s Mac-exclusive, and it shows: Your music library within the app is directly tied with your iTunes library, so this is a great option for DJs looking past the traditional “big three”.
A new version of djay Pro has just been released, and is now compatible with Apple’s new Force Touch trackpads and the Reloop Beatpad 2. Actions that used to require multiple button and touch gestures can now be done with a single force touch, such as force touching EQ to activate kill switches, and engaging channel filters.
No matter what type of DJ you are or what type of gear you own, having a two-channel mixer in your arsenal is a good idea. It’s like the multitool of DJing, and will help you with everything from DJing with friends, to good old fashioned DJing with – god forbid – real turntables. Reloop’s new RMX22i is just such a traditional mixer.
In a major upgrade to its djay Pro platform for Mac, Algoriddim has added comprehensive support for Pioneer CDJ and XDJ models; live video mixing; and a host of other features, helping to make djay Pro a serious alternative for use in pro DJ booths. The platform now supports Pioneer’s CDJ-900, CDJ-2000nexus, and the XDJ-1000.
Algoriddim’s popular djay 2 program for iPhone has had a major update to work with Apple Watch, it has been announced today ahead of the smartwatch’s official launch tomorrow. Both djay 2 for the iPhone and its sister djay 2 for the iPad will be free for an entire week on the App Store as part of the launch.
