(MUNICH, Germany) – December 09, 2015 – Algoriddim, creators of the world’s best selling DJ app with over 20 million downloads, today released djay Pro. The first professional grade app to fully leverage the advanced audio and video capabilities of the new iPad Pro, djay Pro includes a suite of sophisticated desktop-class features including 4 Decks, HD Waveforms, and Video Mixing.
Building upon the rock-solid foundation of the Apple Design Award winning app djay, the sheer performance of iPad Pro enables a host of new features that were previously impossible. djay Pro stretches the limits of audio visual performance on a mobile device, including mixing of up to 4 audio tracks, plus two simultaneous 4K video streams, all rendered in pristine sound quality and with brilliant video output in full HD, at 60 frames per second. Moreover, djay Pro for iPad works with the Smart Keyboard offering over 70 keyboard shortcuts for cue points, looping, library navigation, search, and more. This takes the best of both worlds, desktop and iPad, and melds them together for an unparalleled experience.
djay Pro’s advanced iOS 9 Multitasking capabilities let the user quickly open another app and interact with it without leaving djay Pro. This improves the preparation and performance workflow by allowing DJs to take notes about a tracklist or write down song requests on-the-fly. With Split View, users can go a step further and have djay Pro plus another app open and active at the same time.
“iPad Pro sets a whole new standard for music and video creativity on a mobile device,” said Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim. “Every element, from the A9X chip plus the graphics processor to the Smart Keyboard, has enabled us to introduce unprecedented pro level features that combine the best of touch with tactile control. djay Pro gives performing DJs and visual artists endless flexibility to take their sets to new heights.”
At the heart of djay Pro is an innovative, modern user interface that provides flexible layers of functionality alongside a powerful music library. It features advanced performance modes including horizontal and vertical colored waveforms, live sampler and drum pads, FX racks, as well as a powerful four deck view that allows DJs to play, mix, slice, and synchronize up to four tracks simultaneously.
The all-new video mode in djay Pro allows users to apply visualizers to their music and mix videos in real-time, all with stunning transitions, visual FX, plus title and image overlays. It also comes with extensive pre-bundled video content so users can get creative right away. Additionally, users can quickly record video on-the-fly using the iPad’s built-in camera and combine it with their music for a personalized music video creation. The 1080p video output can be saved as a high quality movie recording in real-time, displayed on an external monitor through HDMI, or streamed wirelessly via AirPlay.
The innovative music library in djay Pro enables DJs to seamlessly combine the Spotify catalog with their local music and video tracks, as well as files stored in iCloud Drive or Dropbox, into a single library. This provides unprecedented flexibility for song selection to DJs and VJs no matter where the user’s content is located. Furthermore, djay Pro’s music library includes an advanced song recommendation engine powered by The Echo Nest which suggests tracks that go well with what the DJ is currently playing based on danceability, BPM, key, music style, and how well the song mixes with the currently playing track.
Over 30 state-of-the-art audio effects by Sugar Bytes are available via In-App Purchase. DJs can beat-synchronize and chain multiple effect units on up to four decks simultaneously allowing for unprecedented creative expression. A host of new audio analysis and editing features powered by audEERING allow users to view and edit beat grids with sample accurate precision.
djay Pro integrates seamlessly with professional DJ hardware supporting select controllers by Pioneer DJ, Numark, Reloop, and other manufacturers right out of the box.
Even better, Cue Points, beat grid edits, metadata, and FX purchases from iOS and Mac versions of djay will automatically sync over iCloud to djay Pro bridging the experience between consumer and pro. DJs can now prepare for their DJ sets no matter where they are and no matter which device they are using.
