Many DJs who have made the switch to digital music still like the vinyl feel of their sets and are opting for apps and hardware that support a digital vinyl system (DVS). Today Algoriddims djay Pro AI joins this camp with a few unique twists. Not only does DVS support include iOS devices in addition to Mac, but the Control vinyl features a special B-side with three “tracks” that take advantage of Neural Mix’s ability to isolate stems from each song. This allows you to drop the needle on track one for the original version, track two for an instrumental, and three for an acapella, all extracted on the fly from whatever song you choose to play.
While DVS support for djay Pro AI on Mac is new, the addition of iPhones and iPads with this feature is truly unique. These devices should be able to send a control tone through any class-compliant USB mixer or controller connected to analog turntables that uses the Neural Mix control disks. And you can possibly Map things like performance pads and knobs with the MIDI Learning Tool, but supported hardware devices for djay Pro AI should be ready to go. This software update also features a streamlined user interface for iOS devices, which should automatically adapt when connecting to DJ hardware.
In addition to the DVS features, this update includes some other interesting optimizations. You can now edit playlists from connected streaming accounts like TIDAL, SoundCloud, Beatport and Beatsource in the djay Pro AI app. It also mentions new AI audio effects and a Pitch Cue/Tone Play feature that lets you use pitched cue points for more dynamic mixing.
That New software is available today and existing djay Pro AI users will automatically receive this update with all included features. New subscribers can try the Pro version for seven days and pay $7 a month or $50 a year after that. Mobile Users need an iPhone or iPad with iOS 12 or higher and macOS users require 10.14 or higher. Pricing and availability for the Neural Mix Control vinyl are pending, although we know it is manufactured and distributed by stokyo. We were told that most existing hard drives should work with 1kHz timecode, so you should be able to use DVS (without the Neural Mix B-side features) right out of the box.
