Following quickly in the footsteps of Apple’s announcement of their new flagship Mac computers earlier this week, Algoriddim has released the Mac app for their djay Pro AI software. It functions via Apple’s new M1 chip, as it’s been rebuilt via Apple Neural Engine in order to run natively on Apple’s new computers as a universal app.
The new Mac app comes with Algoriddim’s Neural Mix technology (sound familiar? Yep – you’re probably familiar with the standalone app for Neural Mix that came out a few months back). It offers 15x faster machine learning performance, as well as open the doors to Neural Mix’s capabilities like isolating beats, instruments, and vocals of any track in real time.
Karim Morsy, Algoriddim’s CEO, explains:
“djay Pro AI and its groundbreaking Neural Mix technology are profoundly impacting DJing and remix culture as a whole. And we’re thrilled to bring it to the Mac. With the power of Apple’s M1 chip we’re doubling down on machine learning to introduce new features that mark a breakthrough in digital audio, including the possibility to apply audio effects not only on the whole track but on individual components of a song. The all-new streamlined user interface shines on macOS Big Sur and will offer DJs unprecedented tools to fine tune their skills and mix music like never before.”
With the Mac app also comes a new feature – the ability to crossfade between singular components of two songs independently, like swapping basslines or melodies, all the while keeping keys and beats matched automatically.
