Our team is thrilled to announce the next major update to djay Pro AI for macOS and iOS, now available on the App Store. We’ve packed this update full of some of your most requested features, including the long-awaited addition of DVS.
Now, all you need is your iPhone, iPad, or Mac with a PRO subscription to djay Pro AI, compatible timecode vinyl records, properly calibrated turntables, and your DVS-compatible mixer, and you’re ready to go!
We’ve been listening to your feedback and suggestions, and working closely with some of the world’s top DJs, to carefully adapt djay’s user interface to ideally complement any connected hardware and provide a unique blend of tactile and touch-based control. Moreover, djay’s audio engine has been fine tuned for digital vinyl control to offer the tightest scratching, most accurate time-stretching, and lowest latency possible.
Watch as world champion turntablist DJ Angelo walks us through the new DVS features in djay:
And, there’s more!
We are also excited to introduce our new DVS format, Neural Mix™ Vinyl: offering isolated stems for any song right on the B-side of the control vinyl. With the official djay Control Vinyl, you can simply drop the needle of the analog turntable onto one of three distinct tracks on the physical record to play either the original song, its instrumental version, or the acapella. See it in action with DJ Angelo:
