Hi Chris,

We've tested djay for Mac on OS X Yosemite and it works great. We found no new issues so far.

I have something to say about this. I'm Jonathan and running my own internet radio station. Well, when I run DJ with the OS, it works great for a few minutes, but then I began to here some audio cut outs through the music throughout my mixer. I have never had this problem with Mavrix. Here are my specs for my mac. Processor
2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory
8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

Hi Jonathan,

Which audio interface are you using? Does the problem also occur when you're e.g. just using the built-in output? Does your audio interface require a special driver?

Hey Warren, hi Jonathan,
had the same problem this weekend. Connected djay with my DJPro. This setup worked flawlessly under Mavericks. Within 6 hours of DJing had several times problems, that output sound started to noise (wasn't clear output signal). One time I lost control over UI...it just stopped responding. Deck was still playing. A nightmare when mixing live. Each time I had to close djay, open again and reconfigure audio engine to resolve the problem...while playing from an ipad as backup. So I wouldn't recommend to update OS.

Hi Joran,

Which controller are you using exactly? Also, what is your Devices setup?

Numark iDJ Pro, 30pin to USB Cabel and MBP mid 2012, 2,5 GHz i5, 16Gb Ram 1600MHz DDR3...

A Android App...lol. Ever seen a DJ using a phone to entertain.

Hi Joran,

Really sorry, but the iDJ Pro is made for iOS and is not even supported on the Mac. Does this also happen when you use one of the natively supported controllers?

Warren, thanks you really made me laugh...
Alright...I really don't want to be a hater or fanboy. I'm just a user, finding a way mapping my iDJ Pro for Mac - which really worked well on Mavericks and I know that the device isn't supported formally. I like your software, because of it's intuitive UI. I'm aware that Apple changed some row's of code when releasing Yosemite, but in the end this problem might rise with other users as well.

I was able to play backup music through the line in of the iDJ Pro when problems occurred. So I guess the device is fine. I also didn't had to turn off and on to resolve the problem. The only cure was reopening djay and reconfiguring audio engine.
I'll do some testing this Friday. From a PM point of view I guess it's worth checking the audio routing parameters of Yosemite. Maybe something changed of how Apple is handling audio signals since 2011. ;-)

Congrats for the new supported mobile os. Can you answer the question, if this release was the "big thing" you commented earlier this year? Or do you need to fill the programmer position first to show up with a updated Mac version?

Hi all. thought it was just me, but at least it's not just me who is having the same problem that I am having... but an answer for all of you. my setup includes:
Macky pro 8 affects 8 channel mixing board with a head set. both which uses USB ports to use. Also, using a DJ controler along with it. No, my mixer does not require an audio driver to be installed. remember the problem did not happen until I have upgraded the OS.

Hello everyone, Am a DJ, i thought am the only one who experienced this, the first time i tried Djay app with Yosemite, i was disappointed, i never notice this problem until when i was in the club, if i try to check on anything else like opening any thing, or trying to load a song, the app will seize for some seconds and cause some cut and a cracky noise, as if my Mac spec is low, this is not a problem with my mac, because i didn't experience this when i was on Mavericks, my mac spec: MacbookPro(mid 2010)
Processor 2.4GHz
Ram: 8GB
SSD: 500GB
even when i try to use it without any controller connected to my MacBook Pro, same issue persist.
I just had to downgrade to Mavericks because this issue really suck.
if you guys really want to have this work well for you, is better to go back to Mavericks until this is solved.

I used DJay for multiple Shows/Events during the Yosemite Beta (yes, I am a bit crazy) with either my Vestax VCI-100 and an external Soundblaster or my Pioneer DDJ WeGo without any problems. Once even with my old Macbook White (Core2Duo 2GHz, 3 GB Ram) due to the (wrong) public reputation of the venue. All smooth and easy.

That's why it is so pity, that development seems to have stalled years ago. C'mob Warren, give us something to live with, not only promises and new updates for the mobile phone toys. (Djay for Android. Meeeh.)

Going to full screen mode (arrows in right upper corner) in djay works but is not the new way of doing that in Yosemite (no more arrows), but trying to come back from fullscreen to regular screen the icons are missing in the menu bar to do that

This is a known issue and our developers are already looking into it.

Funny, there are problems that were posted a year ago that have yet to be addressed.

I have a brand new MB Pro (2.2 Ghz processor, 16GB ram). Every time I attempt to open djay it won't load the tracks (the bulk of which are AIFF files), or else it looks like the tracks have been loaded but the program has frozen. It takes at least four or five force quits and restarts out of djay to get anywhere, and even then it takes a good ten minutes or more before it becomes usable. I'm not expecting pro levels of reliability at all, but even as an at home leisure app, this seriously bites. On my previous MB Pro, running Mountain Lion, I experienced no such issues, it would open right away and would be ready for use with pretty much the same music library. It seems Yosemite and djay don't get along.

Does this also happen with the demo version? http://www.algoriddim.com/djay-mac/do...

Djay is a two year old software, with no upgrades. It is no wonder people are having major problems.

You may want to consider using something more up to date, until they decide to update this software. Updates every two years is UNACCEPTABLE but with only one person running the show, that is what we are stuck with.

Hi All,

I'm running the latest Yosemite with current updates and I too am having playback issues. I have a vestax spin 2. Playing from iOS no problems. Using mac book pro I get a pause of about one second just after the track starts. its in different locations each time. Some tracks will play fine. Some the pause is shorter than others.

Seriously Ryan... you have two choices. Keep using what you got or move on. Nothing is being updated and new software is not coming anytime soon.

Most of us have moved on. I think the software is dead, even though they keep saying otherwise.

Got the new upgrade as well and I love it!!! the only thing that I have yet to test is the playback problems. I have only used it with in an hour's time, and from that I'm thinking that everything is okay, but I'm not sure as I have not done a 2 to 4 hour show yet.

I've installed this crappy yosemite and my djay software (that has always worked perfectly previously) now just pauses mid track for a couple of seconds and even the fluency of the artwork spinning on the virtual turntable looks off.
