Capture your mix live — for your latest podcast, movie or photo slide show, or to make a classic “mixtape.” djay saves your performance in high-quality sound files and contains a built-in organizer that allows you to arrange, preview and export your recordings.

djay's dynamic interface elements can be fully controlled with versatile Multi-Touch gestures. Use rotate gestures to adjust the EQ, or two fingers to scratch the record and operate the crossfader.

djay's advanced audio wave form display gives you an overview of a song's structure and allows you to visually cue to specific points in order to prepare the prefect transition.

Live DJ Sampler

Use the live sampler to add short jingles into the mix. djay comes with a built-in sample pack featuring 20 high quality sounds made by ueberschall, one of the leading companies in the sampling industry. In addition, djay allows you to create your own samples from the turntables or the microphone.

DJ Mixer and EQ controls

3-band equalizers, gain, line faders, and a crossfader give you all the tools you need in a DJ setup to seamlessly blend one song into another.

Harmonic Match

Finding two songs that complement each other is one of the most challenging tasks when mixing music – for beginners and pro DJs alike. With the introduction of Harmonic Match, djay automatically detects a song’s key and allows to match it to songs of the same key within your iTunes music library. It allows you transpose songs into different keys, and even sort your entire music library by key, perfect for creating studio quality mash-ups of your songs.
