Djay 2.0 software improves speed, interface

Djay v2 for disk-jockeying

Algoriddim today released an update to its disk-jockeying software, Djay 2.0, introducing a new interface, enhanced performance, and a redesigned audio engine, as well as some new features. Djay now includes an automix mode that allows for automatic visual mixing, with a built-in sampler. A Live Microphone features real time echoes and voice pitch changing that allow for many different mixing possibilities. Algoriddim is currently selling the updated application for $50, requiring a 1GHz G4 or faster with 512MB of memory, and runs under Mac OS 10.4 or higher.

The new Sampler tool allows users to create, play and loop sound effects taken from one of the two virtual turntables, or from a microphone. The samples can be saved or used in the current mix. External microphones and other audio equipment used for pre-cueing are now automatically detected when they are attached. Djay 2.0 takes advantage of Bonjour, which allows multiple DJs to collaborate on the same mix.

Djay 2.0 integrates with iTunes, allowing users to directly access all of their music and playlists, without requiring any importing. The manual tap and beat-syncing feature allows songs to mix smoothly into one another without adjusting the key. Protected AAC tracks are able to be used in mixes, and the software supports many different audio formats. Protected tracks can not be influenced by the Audio Unit effect plug-ins, unlike standard tracks.

    Missing info

    1. This application used to be free.

    2. Users received no advance notice that the new version was going to be a whopping $50 upgrade.

    3. I'm not saying the app isn't worth $50 -- haven't tested the new version yet -- just that the dev should have handled this a little differently. Perhaps a very "limited time" offer of let's say $20 to let people know it's going to go to $50 soon?
