(MUNICH, Germany) – March 22, 2017 – Algoriddim today released a major update to its Apple Design Award winning djay Pro software. Free to all existing users of djay Pro for Mac, this new version comes with plug & play support for Pioneer DJ NXS2/TOUR1 set-ups, enhanced Touch Bar integration on the new MacBook Pro, and Spotify Browse access with extensive curated content for DJs to find, play, and mix new music instantly.
“djay Pro is the most modern way to DJ on your Mac,” said Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim. “This new version adds a host of new features for live performance, music discovery, and preparation. It combines the best of both worlds, content discovery via Spotify and hardware access through Pioneer DJ’s state-of-the-art CDJ setups.”
Algoriddim partnered with Pioneer DJ for a seamless plug-and-play integration of djay Pro with CDJ-2000NXS2 and TOUR1, the worldwide club standard for professional DJs. For the first time, users can access Spotify and iTunes playlists directly from the CDJ screens including displaying colored waveforms, song information, and cue points.
Using LAN Link, users can connect up to four CDJ-2000NXS2 players with their DJM-900NXS2 mixer via LAN cables, then simply use a single USB cable to connect their Mac to the mixer and everything syncs seamlessly (same for CDJ-TOUR1 players and DJM-TOUR1). Together with the mixer’s built-in audio interface, this means that a single USB connection powers both audio and HID control, resulting in unprecedented simplicity for setup.
First showcased at the Apple keynote event in October 2016, Touch Bar integration in djay Pro introduces a new layer of performance tools for DJs using multi-touch and dynamic controls. On the Touch Bar users can scratch and slice a track, simultaneously apply filters and effects in real-time, and trigger audio samples, all with the touch of a finger. New in djay Pro’s Touch Bar integration is the ability to manipulate two decks simultaneously, manually select the active deck, and to navigate the library to browse, preview, and prepare songs.
djay Pro gives users direct access to Spotify to find, play, and mix millions of songs in pristine sound quality with up to 320 kbps. New in djay Pro is an extensive integration with Spotify’s Browse section, so DJs can now mix curated playlists and instantly discover new music by mood, genre, and popularity.
