Algoriddim recently published their latest Mac OSX version of djay software, which is one of the first desktop applications to integrate Spotify into the DJ environment on the desktop. The company has been working more behind the scenes and now is announcing a new development with Pioneer.
The djay 2 and djay free app for Android now supports advanced performance features including low latency, multi-channel audio output and full support for Pioneer’s DDJ-WeGO3. Read more below how Algoriddim is giving Android users the chance to start DJing with their device.
DJing with Android
Android is one of the most popular smart phone operating systems on the market but not many people count on it as being a viable platform for DJing. Only recently did the iPad become a more acceptable way to DJ but now Algoriddim’s djay 2 app gives Android the chance to shine.
With devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop, DJs can now use djay 2 or djay free with USB audio devices with dual separate dual stereo outputs. DJs can now get a virtual soundcard out of their device within the app and DJs who possess the DDJ-WeGO3 get even more capabilities. The djay 2 app is one of the first Android apps to have a dedicated USB MIDI controller which means users gain full hardware control over the app. This is means that a DJ could consolidate their setup to an Android tablet and small controller.
The djay 2 app will also feature full Spotify access (w/ premium membership), music library integration, and improved DJ controls such as looping, hot cues, effects, and more. This update to the Android software may open some doors for DJs using the system and looking for a new way to DJ. For absolutely free, the djay free app is a great tool to download if not a functional backup to a DJ’s current set-up.
