DJ-1800 3.1 released
Developer DJ-1800 has released an update to its self-named DJ software, bringing the code up to v3.1. The app is described as an all-in-one program for professional DJs, eliminating the need to carry hardware beyond a Mac, amps and speakers; it nevertheless supports external devices such as DJ controllers. In this regard 1800 now has expanded support, including the Denon DN-HC4500, M-Audio's X-Session Pro, and Numark's DMC2, iCDX and Total Control.
DJs can now also select music from attached iPhones and iPod touches, making it possible to supplement or replace tracks from normal sources. In terms of software features the program has a new mid-range EQ control, and customizable low, middle and high EQ ranges between -20dB and +12dB. DJ-1800 requires Mac OS X 10.4.9 and QuickTime 7.3, and costs $80 new or $20 as an upgrade from v1 or 2.
