Turntables Turntable View

Classic and familiar 2 deck mixer & Single Deck mode

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.

Classic turntable view, in landscape and portrait mode

HD Waveforms HD Waveforms

Parallel scrolling, colored waveforms

HD Waveforms: parallel scrolling & colored

Retaining the simplicity of the traditional DJ turntable look-and-feel, djay 2 also features a stunning 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.

Spectral Timeline

Spectral Timeline

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.

Colored Waveforms

Colored Waveforms

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.

Perfect Sync

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.

Perfect Sync

Beat Grids

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.

Slip Mode and Slice Mode

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.
