Algoriddim has announced a new version of its music mixing programme, djay, which makes it possible to spin in virtual reality using Apple’s new Vision Pro VR headset.
The new version of Algoriddim djay — from the developer that has a long-running relationship with the tech giant — is made specifically for the VR/AR headset and launched this week.
The new djay app allows you to mimic a DJ booth setup, complete with dancing robots, 3D turntables, a mixer, and gesture control for FX and more. The app integrates with Apple Music, meaning you can stream music straight from the cloud using Apple’s existing catalogue of millions of tracks and playlists.
The new Apple Music streaming feature also extends to the existing iOS and macOS apps, so none Vision Pro owners can still access the streaming platform’s library. You can also load DJ mixes that are currently available on Apple Music, and have them automixed through the djay app. You can also access your own personalised playlists made on Apple Music. These features are only available to djay Pro subscribers.
On Algoriddim djay, users can add FX using gestures like waving their hands across a 3D ‘X/Y/Z’ pad, and can preview songs by gesturing to your ear as if you’re holding a pair of headphones. Users can also ‘drag and drop’ records from a floating record collection, placing the record on the turntable to start the track.
Djay is a free download from the app store, while a Pro subscription costs £6.99 per month. Existing Apple Music users get a two-month free trial to Algoriddim djay Pro.

Algoriddim djay is not the first software enabling users to DJ in VR and AR. TribeXR launched for the Meta Quest back in 2021, which included a partnership with Pioneer DJ.
