My school year is wrapping up…. Crazy things are happening like the class dance for the 8th graders. The other teachers would rather pay one of the students to be the DJay instead of hiring outside the school. What perfect timing with the newly updated DJay2 app from Algoriddum GmbH today!
DJay will transform your iPad into a fully featured D-jay rig! Obviously the app has always been integrated with your iTunes library but now they have integrated Spotify as well (so what does that mean? Something like 20 million songs at your fingertips! How’s THAT for those of you with a 16GB device?)
DJay has the ability to mix between songs using the builtin mixer and turntables, in fact it even has an Automix feature for those of you who have never done this before! Let the app do the magic for you! There are effects, pitch-bend, filter and EQ controls. You can set looping and cue points. The app even has automatic beat detection to make your transitions tha t much better!
New in this version is the Match feature powered by Echo Nest – this will pick out another song that matches the one currently being played that would go well as the next piece.
In addition to deeply integrating Spotify’s music streaming service into djay, Algoriddim is cutting the price of djay for iPad by 50% and making the iPhone version free ; both sales are running for a limited time. For the iPad version, djay 2 is ordinarily $9.99 but on sale for $4.99 temporarily to celebrate the major update. The iPhone version of djay 2 is typically $1.99 but will be free for the first time as part of a limited promotional run to promote the new version. For existing djay 2 customers, the Spotify-integration update is as free upgrade.
$150 is an easy amount to rake in for being the DJay for a class dance like this! Think about it…..
