Starnberg, Germany and El Segundo, CA – January 28, 2009: algoriddim ( www.algoriddim.net ), a leader in next-generation music software for the Mac, and KB Covers ( www.kbcovers.com ), today announced the release of the djay Keyboard Cover, which converts any U.S. MacBook, MacBook Air or unibody MacBook Pro into fun, fully-interactive DJ controllers. Already known to professionals and novices alike for its exciting visual interface, simple controls and seamless integration with any iTunes library, djay’s many features are now even easier to learn through the keyboard cover’s straightforward display of program shortcuts and commands.
Developed in conjunction with KB Covers, a leading provider of the finest quality keyboard covers for Apple/Mac desktop and laptop computers, the djay Keyboard Cover enables users to spend less time learning controls and more time having fun mixing their own music. Each button is clearly coded with symbols and colors to help identify key functions and distinguish between djay’s extensive shortcuts for both the left and right turntables.
“The djay Keyboard Cover gives users the power to play and mix songs faster than they’ve ever experienced, plus it protects the keyboard from any accidental spill,” said Greg Sad, marketing director of KB Covers. “Our mission is to create truly interactive reference tools for the latest and greatest Mac applications, and when we heard about the capabilities of djay, we knew we could provide DJs everywhere with a must-have accessory.”
Consisting of soft, ultra-thin silicone, the djay Keyboard Cover has a smooth texture that won’t slip off the keyboard and is non-restrictive to regular typing. It also helps to safeguard the MacBook from dirt, spills, wear and tear, allowing the user to protect their equipment while they mix music in their home, at a party or in a nightclub.
“We’re very excited to be continually expanding djay’s lineup of accessories,” said Karim Morsy, CEO of algoriddim. “djay already provides the user with a truly fun and addictive musical experience, but for the many fans who want a more tactile mixing experience, or wish to learn djay’s controls faster, we teamed with KB Covers to create the djay Keyboard Cover. It is now easier than ever to master the program’s commands and reach a new level of interactivity with your own music, and we can’t wait to hear what users think.”
