With the iPad Pro set to make big waves in the tablet production and DJing world savvy manufacturers are now turning their attentions to ensuring that they are at the crest of the wave when it comes to apps that will take advantage of the iPad Pro’s power and expanded feature set.
Algoriddim are quick out of the blocks with the new version of their award winning DJ app djay Pro for iPad. djay Pro takes all the best bits of the laptop version of Algorridim’s app and puts it at the fingertips of DJs who are using tablets.
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. To the man on the street, that’s pretty fly.
djay Pro for iPad also works with Apple’s 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 a truly tasty DJing experience.
The graphic interface for djay Pro is a step above what users were use to with djay 2, this time round there is a lot more information at your fingertips that can be accessed instantly, instead of having to navigate various pop up screens. The advanced performance modes including horizontal and vertical colored waveforms, live sampler and drum pads, FX racks, as well as a pretty cool four deck view that allows DJs to play, mix, slice, and synchronize up to four tracks simultaneously.
And the cool thing is that a lot of the new features will work on existing iPads so if you are not in possession of Apple’s lovely new shiny bit of tech you won’t be missing out on the djay action.
