Hi, I’m very excited about this release and keen to help with the beta test as much as I can. As an android and chrome os user who only owns an ipad so I can use djay (and only owns a windows laptop so I can use iTunes to manage the music on that ipad) I’d love to be free of the hassle caused by apple’s walled garden.
I’ve had a quick play with this new version on my phone (Samsung galaxy A8 2018) and and on a Chromebook (Asus C100P) using a pioneer ddjwego 3 controller. My first impressions are that on a phone, in portrait mode, it’s an excellent work flow for mixing on a small screen. On the Chromebook in landscape/tablet mode it’s less impressive. The cartoon record players, whilst quite fun as an option, are always on screen and I don’t want this, I want the large horizontal waveform view that ios djay can have. Tidal tracks won’t load on the highest sound quality setting, on my phone I get an error message and on the Chromebook it crashes the software. Works on the high and normal settings. Tidal integration worked better on my phone, on the Chromebook the bpm analysis was way off on several of the tracks I loaded.
The main problem for me at this stage is that with pre-cueing disabled, I can’t play a proper set and give a detailed report on how the experience is mixing for a couple of hours. Please consider enabling pre-cueing for beta testers, without this capability the app is essentially unusable.
Really pleased to see a new version of this in the works though, I have high hopes here!
