    Algoriddim integrates ShazamKit technology with djay




    We’re excited to announce an update to djay for iOS 15. With Shazam’s recognition technology now built into djay, you can discover music playing in your surroundings and instantly load it onto the virtual decks. This opens up whole new creative workflows.

    The major update to djay makes it one of the first apps to harness the capabilities of Shazam’s audio recognition, available on Apple’s new iOS 15 operating system, opening up a new chapter for hyper intelligent music applications.

    The built-in feature utilizes Shazam’s recognition technology enabling djay users to discover music playing in their surroundings; whether they are at an event, listening to the radio, or playing a back-to-back set with another DJ. Once a song has been identified, djay instantly loads it onto the virtual decks and plays the audio in sync with the external music source. Time synchronization is achieved by detecting and matching the exact part of the song through Shazam. djay’s Automix feature can then create a mix with similar tracks, automatically remixing the song, applying effects, and deconstructing it into its original components using its Neural Mix technology. djay also saves previously identified songs to users’ Shazam history in Control Center on iOS 15.

    “Integrating Shazam into djay completely transforms the creative workflow of DJs. As a DJ you are constantly on the lookout for great new music to play at your next gig, but identifying a track and the process of getting it into your library has been a challenging task with no seamless way to do it. Now, whenever you hear a great song you can load it into djay’s decks with the tap of a button and instantly unleash your creativity,” said Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim.

    From music recognition to discovery to remixing, djay provides a first-of-its-kind AI-based music experience. The ShazamKit integration is the latest in a range of features made possible by iOS devices, including Neural MixTM, which utilizes the Apple Neural Engine to allow users to isolate beats, instruments, and vocals of any track in real time and redefines the boundaries of creative mixing.

    iOS 15 - Audio Unit Enhancements

    Building on the modern Audio Unit v3 plug-in architecture and new system Audio Unit views added in iOS 15, djay now also allows effects to be added on the master audio output. Users can choose from 14 system effects as well as dozens of third party apps providing Audio Unit effects to add powerful audio processing on the output signal. This can be used, for example, to tailor the audio to the characteristics of the connected PA using precise, fully parametric EQ or to even out the signal for broadcast using multi-band compression for the best possible audio experience.

    Algoriddim introduces world’s first AI-powered hand tracking system for DJs

    gesture-control

    We are thrilled to announced a major update to djay Pro AI on iPad, introducing first-of-its-kind gesture-based control of the app, allowing users to mix and manipulate music on a mobile device hands-free.

    Users can choose from a set of intuitive hand gestures to scratch, create loops in perfect sync with the beat, and apply filters and effects simultaneously; or simply lean back and perform a clap gesture which triggers an automatic transition from one song to the next. Leveraging the power of Apple’s new A14 Bionic chip on iPad, these hand gestures are intelligently detected in three dimensional space and mapped to advanced DJ performance techniques in real time, with maximal accuracy and instantaneous reaction time.

    “The ability to mix music using djay Pro AI’s intelligent, built-in hand tracking technology represents a fundamental change in how DJs are able to orchestrate mixes and adds a new visual dimension to live DJ sets,” said Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim. “Gesture Control is a new paradigm with implications beyond DJing and music creation. It is a major step forward with how people interact with mobile technology.”

    Gesture Control is available as a free update from today for existing users of djay Pro AI on iPad. The update also introduces a host of new features including enhanced MIDI control and seamless access to users’ music files on Dropbox or Google Drive. Moreover, users can now show a visualizer alongside the virtual turntables and choose between live photos, streamed music videos from TIDAL, or a favorite video from their device’s camera roll.

    djay for iOS is available as a free download on the App Store. Users can upgrade to djay Pro AI, including access to Neural MixTM, Gesture Control, and an extensive library of sounds, loops, and visuals, as a subscription via in-app purchase for $6.99 / €6.99 / £6.99 per month. A free trial of the full Pro subscription is available on Mac, iPad, and iPhone.

    Algoriddim Reinvents DJing with World’s First Real-Time Vocal and Instrumental Separation on new djay Pro AI

    neural-mix

    We are thrilled to introduce djay Pro AI and Algoriddim’s revolutionary Neural Mix™️ technology allowing DJs to play and remix singular elements from multiple tracks in real-time. Instantly isolate beats, instruments, and vocals of any song based on cutting-edge AI.

    From the analog to the digital age, DJ technology has seen numerous transformations which had a profound impact on music styles and genres as a whole. Neural Mix™️ is a major paradigm shift. Inspired by the auditory system of the human brain, it changes the way we conceive and mix music. It allows artists of all skill levels to experience and interact with music at an unprecedented depth.

    Neural Mix​™

    djay Pro AI introduces Algoriddim’s brand-new, patent pending¹ Neural Mix™️ technology allowing DJs to isolate, play, and remix singular elements from multiple tracks in real-time. This presents an opportunity to layer and swap individual elements of a track, placing the vocals or rhythm from one track directly onto another, allowing DJs to blur genres and redefine their style.
    On screen, djay Pro AI provides intuitive sliders and controls, enabling users to seamlessly fade between percussive and harmonic components of a song, best suited for electronic music, or to create instant acapellas and instrumentals with the tap of a button, best suited for Hip-Hop related music.

    Core ML and the Apple A12Z Bionic

    Built from the ground up using Core ML, djay Pro AI is the first music app to fully leverage the Apple Bionic chip for real-time playback of music. Neural Mix™️ provides ultra low latency, pristine sound quality, and sample-accurate precision for seeking, scratching, and time-stretching. It does this while processing millions of audio frames per second through deep convolutional networks on the Apple Bionic and rendering high-resolution multi-track waveforms and video in real-time.

    Other features of djay Pro AI include:

    • Intelligent Automatic Mixing - Automix AI identifies rhythmic patterns and the best intro and outro sections of songs, calculates optimal fade durations and automatically applies parameter changes to EQs and filters for a seamless transition. Perfect for users who want to lean back and listen to a seamless automatic mix.

    • Neural Mix™ transitions - independently crossfades pairs of musical components of two songs so that a constant pace and energy is maintained throughout a transition without vocals or harmonies clashing. 

    • DJ Hardware compatibility - djay Pro AI works with an extensive range of MIDI controllers out of the box, offering over 30 new MIDI-mappable Neural Mix™ commands that can be assigned to DJ hardware controls.
    • UI Refresh - carefully adapted user interface provides intuitive control of new AI music features. A stunning new full screen view allows users to interact with individual waveforms for drums, harmonic, and vocal components per track, side by side.

    The new version of djay Pro AI is now available as a free update to existing djay for iOS users.
