Hi community,



We’re excited to introduce a major update, free to existing djay users.

You can now access SoundCloud’s massive music catalog to discover and mix millions of tracks. djay’s integration with TIDAL offers HiFi sound, millions of tracks, and MUSIC VIDEO streaming. djay now also supports Ableton Link across Mac and iOS which allows you to seamlessly sync djay running on different devices.



Please share your feedback and let us know what you think.



Cheers

Hey there! I’m not sure I want to pay more subscriptions as I already pay Spotify and djay Pro even if I paid for djay 2 back in the day.
What about tagging / metadata management? Playing spotify/SoundCloud etc, without internet connection?

cheers and love, Pierre.

This is great news... but... what's the deal with Spotify integration?  All mentions of that seems to have disappeared from the website.  Is there a time after which Spotify integration will be gone?

With all things being equal now that Spotify integration is gone, do you stick around or do you jump ship over to the other platforms (Serato, Rekordbox, VirtualDJ, Traktor)?

Spotify and the Algoriddim iOS applications were the main selling point for me, but now this definitely changes perspectives.

Agree, it's my main reason to use djay pro, without spotify, there's a lot of choice, even the new version of djpro can stream from soundcloud but same with the upcoming rekordbox + beatport link. This is sad.

I think for existing Djay customers this is not very relevant because Spotify ist the best you can get on the market. But this is importand for Allgoridm to win new costomers from TIDAL, Soundcloud etc. 

Now it is easy to use TIDAL music library in Serato, Recordbox, Denon Prime 4 and DJay.

I am a DENON PRIME 4 user. Denon Prime 4 support TIDAL and Soundcloud (Beta). I mapped the Prime 4 and it works grat. For LED and PAD's etc. I need support from Aggoridm to implement this.

Denon released a whole series of PRIME devices. If you support Prime 4 you automatically support Prime 2 and prime Go 

Denon Prime sells very very good. Please support this devices.

Congratulations on acquiring those new partnerships!!

Can u please consider of making that sidebar customizable in a future release, I now have to look at Tidal and Soundcloud everytime I scroll through it when I want to get to my Spotify lists and back to my library/iTunes.

There is no other product that support Spotify.

If this happen, then the reason is that Spotify does not allow third parties to use Spotify. Spotify stopped Virtualdj a year ago. Spotify worked already with Spotify. I was wondering that Allgoritm is still allowed to use Spotify.

Because I have Denon Prime 4 I have Spotify, Tidal and Soundcloud subscription. I use a playlist transfer app tho move Spotify playlist to Tidal. Works great.

I love Spotify most, but I have no problem to quit Spotify and move to Tidal.

Yes. Pacemaker is closer to traditional DJ at but I don't think it supports controllers.
Pyro is by cerrito and is a auto DJ app very much to automix in your common DJ software with some cool algorithm

Installed 2.1 update and had to roll it back. New Tidal and Soundcloud components installed, and Spotify was still there as well, but the top half of the application was just a black box (no decks, no mixer controls, no waveforms, etc). Anything above the browser interface, and anything below the top menu bar was just a blank box.  I rolled back to 2.0.16 and everything is operating normally.

sync does weirdly not what I expect it to do. it always syncs the wrong deck when I try to sync a new track just loaded. also sometimes it gets stuck and you cannot press the sync buttons to activate it. or it runs out of loop. That's just three issues related to that part.

oh yeah, and Spotify is done as of June 2020 btw :-(

The new update broke the video automix. The same videos plays on deck 1 and 2 while the music changes.

Great update with a lot of really cool additional things... ABLETON LINK AT LAST!!!
here are a few bugs to fix:
A: when in sync mode, if you need to change the loop down to 1 beat as a quick way to fix a track that has been analyze wrong out by a beat, as soon as you drop out of loop mode it jumps the track back to the downbeat of the grid again which was better when it didn't do this...
B: when there is a track is currently playing the opposite deck starts to flash, which is opposite the previous version... Confusing 
C: a couple MIXON 4 wrong midi assignments, but quickly reassigned while performing... Easy enough
Playing the update live in front of audience 2 nights tonight all seems to be going well..

Tidal videos on Djay pro are very low quality. Videos look like when you download them from YouTube. Low resolution ..

Hey new bug...
Loop play back jumps out of looping when you changed down to a beat or 1/4 beats and try to enlarge it up again, just disengages from looping

Saddens me, as I have so many highly tweaked playlists to go with every event you can think off.... as an echo to others on here, it is the guts to the system and #1 reason to use it... lets hope Tidal can live up to the simplicity of Spotify, In the past when used, it didnt come close....

I agree. But you should blame Spotify, not Allgoritm. Spotify does not allow DJ Apps to use their library.

I see it positive. Tidal and Soundcloud are owned by the artists and maybe there is more innovation possible as withe the bulky market leadr.

I transfered my Spotify playlists to Tidal with this tool.
