Review: djay3.1 DJ software

updated 10:00 pm EDT, Thu April 1, 2010

DJ software accesses iTunes, has automix, sampling

MacNN's review of djay3.1, a comparatively inexpensive Mac-only DJ software title, found it simple enough to work with iTunes yet complex enough to compete with more expensive DJ software. It accesses a user's iTunes library and can play, program and manipulate the tracks. Using a dual-turntable interface, it allows cross fading, equalizing and gains on each deck. MacNN found the new interface easier to navigate, with an uncluttered and intuitive layout.

djay3.1's automix feature worked well but created some difficulty with starting points in certain situations. A built-in sampler is another useful feature that allows recording loops, sound clips or vocals to build a sample library. Users can also record entire mixes as AAC m4a or AIF.

The new software offers compatibility with third party USB hardware controllers. It occasionally struggles with setting cue points, but they are one-time settings. djay3.1 requires Mac OSX 10.4 or higher and costs $50.
