Amazing news, djay became Pro, now becomes big...

I wish it will be that challenger to established players that changes the market's dynamics : no to hardware / software locks, yes to music streaming services revolution, yes to portability with tablets/phones, even in Pro booths.

Will give it a try. Good luck and keep up the good work !

Do i drop my feedback here?

When switching from internal audio, to external mixing mode and audio (Mixon 4) the playback of a song slows down in tempo, but bpm counter stays the same.

So my (spotify) song has to play in 128 bpm and shows 128 bpm, but plays in 112 bpm.

While playing the song, switching to internal soundcard, the bpm jumps back to normal.
Tried on 2 separate windows devices. Same issue.Thnx

I'm very excited to get started, but I'm curious: is there an easy way to transfer libraries (itunes libraries and analysis data) between platforms. I think moving my itunes library should be a copy paste but what about the Djay data?

Looking forward to testing this out!

Sadly, this most likely means that Djay Pro for Mac has seen its' last update for a while...

Oh well.

Thanks for sharing your concern. We’re also actively working on updates to our existing platforms, and existing versions are benefitting from various optimizations we’ve been developing in the process of porting to Windows.

thanks, works really amazing on my surface pro 4,
i played only my spotify library and this works very well.

Is it possible to Pre-cueing with my bluetooth headset or maybe with an usb soundcard?

I connect my bluetooth headset but i can only set the headset as master...

You will need a multi-channel audio interface for sending both master and monitor to the same device. There’s currently no way to "aggregate" two separate audio devices for master and monitor (e.g. combining a Bluetooth/USB soundcard with the built-in interface).

I tried to set up with my native instruments komplete audio 6 usb audio interface, which has 4-channel (2 x stereo) audio outputs but I am not able to set the 3/4 Chanel for Pre-Cue / Headphone mode. (wich works just fine in native instruments traktor 2)

Ok so here is my initial feedback based on playing local files, I haven't touched spotify yet. Sorry in advance for a massive wall of text:

GENERAL PROBLEMS
- There is no way to have multiple audio devices. (For example, I like to output from my computers speakers and have the precue coming from my mixtrack pro 2, but currently i am only given a choice between "speakers" or "mixtrack pro 2." Other than that the outputs are working fine)

-There is no way to analyse the whole library or even specific playlists, only analyse songs as they are loaded to the deck. If there is a menu option somewhere it is unintuitively placed
EDIT: Derp, I ended up finding it eventually. Still think it could be better signposted

-If active deck protection is turned on and you load a song onto an active deck, there is no way get rid of popup without using you mouse. I know on the mac version you press enter and it gets rid of it. I know its fine because most people use a mouse, but for those of us that stick just with a controller and keyboard its a pain

-Setting grid start reanalyses the waveform of the song. I'm not sure if this is intended or not. I'm fairly certain this does not happen on mac, or if it does there is no indication in the UI that it does so

CONTROLLER MAPPING PROBLEMS (With stock mappings)
Mixtrack Pro II
-Back button does not switch between playlists and the list of songs
-Cue LED does not blink in time with the BPM when paused
Other than that all good. The stutter seems to just be another queue button though, but what numark originally meant by stutter is beyond me anyway

Numark Dj2GO
-Cue LED to not blink in time with the BPM when paused
Other than that all good.

Finally, I'm not sure if this is due to early stages of optimisation or my computer being really crap, but I'm getting very significant lag, especially noticable when using facers and scratching. Eventually the app would use all the processing power of the cpu and then either freeze or crash.
My processor is probably a 6-7 year old i5 though, so I'd listen to what other people are saying with respect to that. If it is just a case of having old hardware, I'd add some minimum and reccomended specs for processors to the store page to discourage people with crappy computers buying the app and then compaining it doesn't work

OVERALL
Very good port. Only crippling issue is with multiple audio devices, fix that and it'll be great for most people. New UI feels very Djay but also very windows, I like it alot.

Thank you so much for listening to our calls to port the program to windows, I firmly believe it will significantly expand the Djay brand. IMO at your price point no competitor comes close to offering your feature set, and the only reason most of my DJ friends had not considered you software was because it wasn't on windows.

There’s currently a known issue where djay Pro will crash on launch if your Windows username contains non-English characters. We’re working on fixing this in one of the next updates. Sorry for the inconvenience.

My Windows username doesn't contain non-English characters, but launching the app shows the loading screen with the djay Pro beta logo and revolving circles, before showing a black screen after about 5s. I'm on Windows 10 version 1607 build 14393.693 as well.

Hardware shouldn't be an issue as I'm using an i7 6700HQ, GTX 1060 (6GB VRAM), 16GB RAM, running the OS off an SSD. Laptop is running with power plugged in as well, so no power-saving nonsense going on either.

I will start be saying I am not a pro. I am just using DJAY for home use. I selected it because of spotify support. Spotify works fine for me no problems at all. I have one other problem (or maybe it is just a feature that is missing). I bought a Vestax Typhoon so I could try a DJ controller with the program. Since this controller is not a support controller I read somewhere that a "Midi configuration" GUI would show up allowing me to map my controller manually. This does not happen for me when I plug in the controller. The controller works in Traktor, so I guess the controller is OK. Could someone tell me if this midi configuration feature is missing or is it me :-)

There is currently no way to map controllers which are not natively supported with djay Pro for Windows.

Vestax Typhoon is not in the supported hardware...

You will need to map it yourself.

Starting with Spotify and a Beatpad 2 controller. The selected songs are played in a wrong key. They are played in a lower BPM as showed. Changing to the local library, playing a song, and returning to Spotify corrected the BPM.
Slicing and sliced loop are not working as on an ipad.
The FX are not selectable by the controller at first press. They have to be selected on the laptop first, and then they are selectable with the controller.
The soundwaves don't show the bassdrum - hihat as on the ipad. The grid is displayed correctly, but analysing the waveform is not as easy as on an ipad.

Minor glitches:
Starting in waveform, the cover art is displayed in the upper corners. When changing the view to the turntables, and returning to the waveform, the coverart has been replaced by mini turntables. This can not be undone.

Thanks for the update Douglas, glad to hear it’s working on another machine. Could you send us a screenshot of the Windows Store page that’s missing the download button on your Windows 10 notebook so we can follow up on this with Microsoft? Thanks!

Hello can you reproduce the problem I have ?

I have a Beatpad 2 attached. When starting up, Djay pro is on the internal soundcard, starting a song, bpm and waveform are in focus.
Changing to the Beatpad ( or an other controller ) changes the speed of the song, it slows down. BPM and Waveform are totally out of focus.
Can you reproduce this error?

Yes we’re working on this. In the meantime to work around the issue please try changing the sample rate of your controller to 44.100 Hz in the Windows audio device settings.
