December 16, 2018 by Mobile Beat

The Next Generation of the Apple Design Award Winning App djay for iOS is now free, Offering Enhanced Spotify Integration, and New Optional Pro Features Including Music Production Tools, Live Video Remixing, and More.

MUNICH, Germany, December 12, 2018 – Algoriddim, winner of multiple Apple Design Awards for its acclaimed music apps, today released an all-new unified djay for iOS that builds on eight years of industry leading DJ technology for mobile platforms. Available as a free download on the App Store, this new version provides everything users need to get started with DJing. Using their Spotify Premium account, users get instant access to mix millions of songs right from within djay.

In addition, djay introduces a new live performance audio and video looper, beat-matched sequencing of drums and samples, a streamlined touch friendly interface, and a massive library of audio & video loops and effects, all available via an optional Pro subscription.

The new djay is designed from the ground up to fully leverage Apple’s new cutting-edge iPad Pro and pushes the A12 Bionic processor in ways that are unprecedented. Users can now mix up to 48 loops with up to 10 videos rendered simultaneously and in real-time.

“Our mission has always been to make DJing accessible to everyone, anywhere, at any time,” said Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim. “Continuing this mission, we are now making live music production tools available by bridging the gap between music mixing and music creation. We can’t wait to get this into the hands of everyone who loves music.”

Get it for free

With one, unified version of djay, anyone can now download the app for free. Spin some tunes on the wheels of steel using djay’s iconic Classic Mode, mix millions of songs through Spotify, or just let djay’s machine learning based Automix AI engine do the transitions for you with the simple tap of the “Next” button.

Classic Mode – turntable view

Just two turntables and a mixer, with spinning discs that react just like vinyl does. Virtual grooves are individually 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. Load two tracks and fade between the two, and apply one of five free FX to the music on each deck.

Automix Mode – simple mix view

The new Automix view allows you to mix your favorite music with the simple tap of a button. djay creates perfect sounding mixes from one song to the next and finds optimal transition points through its machine learning based Automix AI engine. Mixing songs has never been easier.
Seamless Spotify Integration – mix millions of songs

Use the free version of djay with a Spotify Premium account to mix millions of songs instantly. Using Match, an innovative feature that recommends songs that go well with what the DJ is currently playing, Spotify integration in djay provides a list of matching songs based on danceability, BPM, key, and music style. This allows you to find the perfect next song to mix, as well as to discover new music based on your personal taste. And thanks to the new djay’s enhanced integration, you can now save songs to your Spotify collection or playlists right from within djay. Using Automix AI users can trigger automatic, beat-matched transitions between their favorite songs on Spotify with the simple tap of a button.

Multiple screens and peripherals

Thanks to the USB-C port, users can now connect multiple devices to their iPad Pro. This allows users to output the visual mix to their big screen while jamming with an external controller – an essential feature for DJs and performing artists.

Live performance and remixing

DJs wanting to spice up their sets can use the new sampler to record and sequence their loops during the mix. Those wanting to dive deeper into unique musical performance can load up the grid-based Looper with up to 48 loops, all time-stretched and perfectly matched to the beat in real-time.

The power of the A12 Bionic processor

Every sample in the new looper can be assigned a video clip that plays in time with the audio. And thus, with the power of the A12 Bionic chip, you can now mix up to ten videos in real-time. DJs and VJs can finally leave the laptop at home, and mix videos and visual loops, in real-time, right on their mobile device.

Advanced Automix AI

The advanced Automix mode allows users to automate their sets in advance with stunning transitions. Using machine learning and training sets from human DJs, Automix AI intelligently identifies rhythmic patterns and the best intro and outro sections of songs. Automix AI calculates optimal fade durations and automatically applies parameter changes to EQs and filters for a seamless transition. Users can fully customize their preferred mix settings and start the automix with a single tap.

Powerful Audio and Graphics Technology

djay’s audio, graphics, and sync engines were rebuilt from the ground up to include support for Post-Fader FX, high resolution colored waveforms at a silky smooth 60 fps (120 fps on iPad Pro), beat-locked Sync Mode, sequenced playback of samples, advanced video mixing, and ultra-low latency.

Ableton Link

djay now has industry-standard Ableton Link for syncing tempo across compatible apps and devices on a shared network. Whether jamming with friends using desktop setups, or linking with other mobile apps, your tempo will be locked and flawless, even over Wi-Fi.
