Algoriddim has updated its long-running and popular app djay. The latest version, 5.0, is a free upgrade for all existing users, and updates their NeuralMix Technology with a new algorithm from industry leaders AudioShake.
Stem separation was first introduced in 2020, and has become a core part of DJ software. AudioShake’s algorithms are widely regarded as some of the best available, meaning you should see an improved sound quality from your separation.
Elsewhere, Algoriddim has added a new Crossfader Fusion feature, that allows users to select from a preset list of transition FX that are activated with the crossfader. As you fade from one deck to the next, the app introduces new FX, depending on the preset, that makes your blend a more seamless transition than simply using volume fades alone. These FX can also be introduced in automix mode, ensuring smoother and more natural blends when the app is on autopilot.
djay 5.0 also adds a new beatmatching system called Fluid Beatgrid. The company say that the new system is “capable of instantly analysing and predicting the structure of any song”, and that the grid system is now dynamic and follows tempo fluctuations rather than remaining rigid and fixed post-analysis. Algoriddim say you now don’t have to edit your beatgrids manually.
Of the new update, Algoriddim CEO Karim Mosey said: “We’re excited to introduce djay Pro 5, a significant update that marks a new chapter in the evolution of music mixing. Combining our unique expertise enabled us to develop exclusive new DJ technologies and elevate Neural Mix to an unprecedented level of quality and performance. The transformation of the crossfader, coupled with cutting-edge beat detection, creates a DJing experience like never before.”
Algoriddim djay Pro 5.0 costs £6.99 a month or £48.99 per year. Find out more on the Algoriddim website.
