Just showing up a few hours ago on our YouTube feed, we’ve got the latest teaser from Algoriddim of their new version of their DJ application, djay 2.
All of the iOS DJ apps have been doubling down recently – with Traktor DJ’s latest update going free download this week and DJ Player offering a completely new design. So what will be changed in this new version of djay that will ensure Algoriddim holds their spot as one of the most popular iOS DJing applications? In terms of the teaser below, all we can tell clearly is that there’s some kind of sample feature that lets us quickly trigger, say, a heartbeat sample.
Our guess is that Algoriddim is likely a bit concerned about losing their close relationship with Apple after spotting Native Instruments’ Traktor in the latest feel-good Apple commercials and will do everything in their power to match and exceed the features in Traktor DJ. We might see such features as:
- an equivalent to the Slicer/Freeze cue jumping feature
- additional hardware compatibility to rival the Z1 integration
- a similar track recommendation system that suggests the best tracks to mix in based on key, tempo, etc.
- DVS + MIDI compatibility to match DJ Player’s offerings
What features would you put in djay’s new release?
