djay 3 improves multi-touch trackpad scratching

algoriddim on Tuesday introduced a new version of its digital turntable software for Mac and iTunes, djay 3. The app adds support for Multi-Touch gestures, enabling users to control a variety of parameters including effects, track scratching, or crossfade between the two virtual tables. Version 3 offers a redesigned user interface, automatic tempo and beat detection, and an auto-cut scratching function that syncs with the song's beat and rhythm. MIDI support has been added, along with support for MIDI Learn controller mapping.

Other changes include automatic volume adjustments to help keep multiple songs at the same level, the ability to queue-up songs in advance, and new effects for beat-matched looping and Audio FX.

Along with the new Mult-Touch scratching function, the app also adds drag-and-drop mixing and automatic playlist mixing with DJ-style transitions. iTunes integration has been enhanced automatically pull songs, cover art and playlists every time the program is launched.

djay 3 is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and available directly from the company or supporting retailers for $50. A free 15-day trial version is also available to download for new users. [updated with correct screenshots]
