Ok so i’m a DJ and an amateur developer, I have to say first off i am overall impressed with Algoriddims DJAY PRO, I used the original DJAY APP for awhile before DJAY PRO was released (which i find a bit of a rip off since i bought original DJAY and had to re-purchase its major upgrade)
Anyways back to the solutions i have found to work for me, ok so first option i found worked to fix was to play whatever media gives you these errors through iTunes at least once allowing it to account for leveling and gapless playback or whatever…
If that doesn’t work move the problem media to an external drive and connect it to your iTunes library or a playlist then analyze library of said media,…
And if that still doesn’t work this last option has always worked, if you have a copy of the original DJAY APP JUST OPEN IT UP AND DRAG ERROR MEDIA INTO A DECK, SHOULD LOAD AND ANALYZE …now that original DJAY app has analyzed DJAY PRO will no longer give you error…
for some reason the original DJAY app’s analyzation algoritham accounts for more file formats, then tags the media and somehow fixes whatever caUses the original OSSSTATUS -54 ERROR.
A recent update…i found if the above solutions still work to fix, take problem media put it in a folder, create an iTunes playlist, drag problem media into playlist, select all media in playlist the goto :FILE > CREATE NEW VERSION : then just choose ACC VERSION or if there are videos also selected, just choose either of the other two listed options. After conversion said media should work absolutely no problem…
I am happy to see where this software is going there is still much work to be done, but i use professionally and have had a better user experience than most other DJ apps available (serato, tractor, virtualdj) it could be truly amazing piece of indrustry software…
hope this helps you guys it took me quite some time to trouble shoot this problem as i had a music collection of nearly 200 thousand songs and videos…
FINALLY A LIST OF FEATURES I THINK SHOULD BE ADDED:
*TO ANALYZE SONGS FROM DJ THROUGH THE FINDER VIEWER TAB
*ITUNES IF DJAY SOFTWARE IS PRESENT SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY ANALYZE AND DISPLAY IN ITUNES TABS THE BPM AND KEY (this would greatly increase work flow and save time analyzing each song or playlist)
*THE NEW VIDEO MIXING OPTIONS IS AMAZING, BUT WOULD BE EXTRAORDINARY IF THERE WAS A REMOTE CONTROL APP LIKE VJAY THAT I COULD USE TO CONTROL VIDEO DECKS, I TRY USING VIDEO MIXING WITH CURRENT BUILD AND FIND IT TO BE A BIT LAGGY AND A BIT TOO CONFUSING, THE FEATURES ARE GREAT BUT DEF NEED MORE EFFECTS, AND TRANSITIONAL OPTIONS
*THIS IS A BIG ONE - A BEATGRID ANALYZATION!! A MAJORITY OF MY SONGS CHANGE THEIR BPM AT CERTAIN POINTS IN THE SONG, IT WOULD BE NICE IF THE BPM COUNTER COULD ACTIVELY DISPLAY WHEN OR WHERE THESE BPM VARIATIONS OCCUR AND ACCOUNT FOR THAT CHANGE WHEN SYNC OF TWO TRACKS IS ENABLED, (i can’t stand it when i have a song perfectly synced, then i drop the loop and one of the songs bpm’s changes and i have to qUickly hit SYNC again or crossfade back to only one track, extremely aggrivating becaUse yes i can absolUtely sync two songs with my ears, but if a change in songs BPM occurs,…without a visual reference to said variation,…its a problem.)
*OPTION TO SEARCH BMP, to be able to just type in a BPM in search field and it provide an playlist or media library’s matches would be a valuable option.
*IPAD CONTROLLER (REMOTE) APP!!
*THE NEW “MATCH” OPTION IS AMAZING BUT NEEDS AN UPDATE IT TOOK 2 HOURS FOR THE MATCH OPTION TO FIND A SINGLE SONG OUT OF MY LOCAL COLLECTON AND SPOTIFY …(HORRIBLE) BUT AGAIN THIS COULD BE A STELLAR FEATURE ONCE REFINED.
*A WAY TO LOAD, PLAY, AND DISPLAY KARAOKE FORMATED FILES!!! DUH!!
*FINALLY A BETTER MORE ACCURATE BPM SYNCING algorithm,… i find about 70% of the time i have to match songs with my ear in my cue because sync inaccurately analyzed.
