Hello, new to the forum, and Algoriddim products. My question is, I see that Djay does now offer Spotify integration, is that only for the ipad/iphone products, or is that available for the mac version also? I didn't see it included in the list of features on the mac app store and assume it just hasn't been updated yet.

I will never think of them joking with people. That would be a lack of respect if they mean dec 18th, 2015!

Or maybe they're just waiting for 10am Cupertino time just like Apple always do...so 6pm UK time.

But they find themselves in Germany, I think, so what are they waiting for?

I'm so disappointed. The one and only reason I just dropped $49 in downloading DJay pro was being able to integrate my premium spotify service with it. And I can't seem to get my Macbook Air and spotify to make the final connection. It goes through everything..then shows my info and the only option i have is a cancel button. and I can't get that pop up page to go away any other way but to cancel the process. there is no "DONE" button.

Spotify seems to be working fine for me, but all recording is disabled when you're using Spotify as your catalog. That makes this app pretty useless to me, as I don't need another app for just playing around w/ live mixes. I've requested a refund. I understand Algoriddim likely couldn't get around the licensing challenges to allow recording from Spotify, but I wish they'd made this clearer in the app description, and I wouldn't have wasted my time buying the app. Hopefully they'll make that clearer in the description.

If you're running on a Mac you can load up Soundflower and record your audio into another DAW or audacity etc

Kieth, if you're running on a Mac you can use soundflower to send the djay audio to record in a DAW. I'm sure there's a similar solution for PC.

Yeah I saw that after I posted -- but given the way this whole thing was handled I was wondering if there was some concession for existing users (esp say if you just bought the product this year with no clue that it was going to be made obsolete by this new product)

Major question: is spotify offline possible? In clubs I never have online access to the tracks.

I purchased Djay for Mac last Spring thinking it would integrate Spotify much as it did for iPhone and iPad, but we all know that was not the case. As a result, I never used the program, which cost something like $30. So now the real deal comes along and they treat it as a new purchase, no credit for existing users. Not sure if this is good business. I'm feeling somewhat swindled.

Just purchased the PRO to run with my RELOOP controller. Insanely laggy and won't load more than one track. I'm running on a MBP. Any suggestions?

Due to OSX 'sandboxing', which adds security to the operating system by limiting the environment an app has access to, DJay Pro just can't dive into your installed Spotify app's offline playlists.
HOWEVER, I just did a look into the Spotify API, libspotify, which does indeed support the possibility of implementing and tracking offline tracks (see https://developer.spotify.com/docs/li...). There's also pyspotify, python spotify api, which as of version 2.0.0a1, supports offline playlists (see https://github.com/mopidy/pyspotify/i... , and https://pyspotify.mopidy.com/en/lates...).
It appears this is just a question of Algoriddim paying people to implement it, the desire to do so, and their overall project plan timeline.

Unfortunately that’s not the case, as djay is using other means to access Spotify due to its specific requirements.

So, I guess that leaves the Spotify Web API, since that does not appear to support offline playlists, and judging from the documentation, is not as granular of an API as libspotify .... if not, what then, out of curiosity? Thanks!
