djay 2 introduces a groundbreaking new user interface that uses sliding layers to combine turntables, HD Waveforms™, and a drum machine into an intuitive, yet powerful all-in-one DJ system.
“Got a hidden scratch master inside of you? djay will serve beginners and experts.”– The New York Times
djay transforms your iPad into a full–featured DJ system. Seamlessly integrated with your music library, djay gives you direct access to all your favorite songs and playlists on your iPad. You can perform live, record mixes on–the–go, or enable Automix mode to let djay create a seamless mix for you automatically. Whether you are a professional DJ or a beginner who just loves to play with music, djay offers you the most intuitive yet powerful DJ experience on an iPad.
Mix and scratch your music on a hyper-realistic turntable interface. In djay 2 virtual grooves are individually mapped and rendered for every song on djay’s virtual records. It allows to quickly identify breaks within a song, as if it was real vinyl fresh off the press.
Retaining the simplicity of the traditional DJ turntable look-and-feel, djay 2 now also adds a stunning new waveform layer, which allows you to touch and interact with your music at an unprecedented level of detail and clarity. HD Waveforms provide you with precise visual cues that highlight similar sounds with similar colors, leveraging the full resolution of the Retina display.
djay’s new spectral timeline allows you to visualize the structure of a song through color (intro, chorus, verse, etc.) and identify similar parts within a song.
Allows you to visually identify individual parts of the audio based on frequency ( e.g. bass, snare, high-hat, etc ). Each element has its own identifiable look.
Seamlessly blend songs together with the tap of a button. Perfect Sync ensures they always stay beat-synchronized for a perfect transition or a continuous mash-up.
The enhanced audio analysis in djay 2 auto-detects bars and visualizes exact beat markers on the waveform. This allows you to precisely cue or visually beat match two songs.
Slice Mode turns the beats in the waveform into temporary hot cues so you create stunning remixes on the fly. Slip Mode lets you scratch without losing the beat – perform a scratch session and the music will snap back in time seamlessly when you release.
