Djay 2 Compatible Controllers

Dec 11, 2017  djay Pro 2 is the next generation of Algoriddim’s multiple award-winning DJ software with countless new features, a redesigned user interface, and advanced library management tools. Djay Pro’s unique, modern interface is built around a sophisticated integration with your music library, giving you instant access to all your favorite tracks and playlists. Jul 10, 2018  Today we take a different approach to the same objective: use any controller with mobile apps that have a limited list of compatible controllers. But this time the starring apps are Algoriddim’s djay Pro and Mixvibes’ Cross DJ Pro, and the method is far more simple. Let’s get started! Algoriddim teamed up with the most talented DJs to teach you the art of mixing music. Phil, founder of Digital DJ Tips, the biggest DJ training website in the world, has written a best-selling iBook about DJing with djay on iOS. In a online video course Emma from School of Scratch teaches you how to scratch with a DJ controller. What is the difference between Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2 and Algoriddim Djay? Find out which is better and their overall performance in the DJ software ranking.

Read our review on the popular DJ software.

BPM Supreme’s in-house expert, Raj Thomas, recently had the chance to check out djay Pro 2, the next generation of Algoriddim’s multiple award-winning DJ software. It has new features like artificial intelligent DJ mixing, beat-matched photos and an improved interface to make mixing with iTunes and Spotify even easier.

Keep reading to see what Raj had to say about djay Pro 2:

“Recently I was able to get my hands on Algoriddim djay Pro 2. When it comes to DJ software, there are usually two programs that come to mind for me – Serato DJ and Traktor. For a third option, Virtual DJ is a solid go-to program as well. When I had the chance to use djay Pro 2 both at home and out at gigs, I found more pros than cons, and ended up having a good time with it.

Djay Compatible Controllers

Sound quality
The New Audio Engine pleasantly surprised me. It sounds really great! No dropouts during built-in stand alone playback, and also no problems when using my compatible DJ controller.

X-Y Effects Control
I love the ability to control the FX in an X-Y performance pad type of layout. This allows for more expression with parameters than traditional knobs – especially if you’re performing with just a computer and no controller.

Compatible Controllers
There are a vast amount of compatible controllers from all price ranges that natively work with djay Pro 2. The company seems very active in keeping up with the new hardware coming out from manufacturers.

Macbook Pro TouchBar Compatible
Very surprised to see some useful features programmed into the debatably gimmicky touchbar of the new Macbook Pro. I usually don’t use my touchbar but using it with djay Pro 2 was pretty fun.


Images in Video Mode
The PhotoBeat feature is great to have if you are DJing with video and don’t have every video you need. Instead you can display images, such as a flyer for an upcoming event. PhotoBeat also allows you to have a nice visual slideshow with effects should you just want a theme of images playing on the screen. Great for weddings!

Beautiful Design
Have to mention the design aspect of djay Pro 2. It’s definitely ahead of the curve when comparing to competition.

No Controller Needed
This software is ready to go when you are. Whether you perform using only a laptop, or maybe you want to test mixes out without setting up all your gear, just open up the software and have fun!

Automix AI
Automatic DJ mixes based on artificial intelligence is a pretty cool feature. I think it would be great to use for dinner parties or during a wedding reception dinner to make the experience a little better than a normal pre-made playlist.

Price Point
As I write this review, you can download djay Pro 2 for only $39.99 on the App store. Really can’t beat that!

Different Keyboard Shortcuts than Serato
There were just a few things I noticed that could use improvement on djay Pro 2. For example, when using the computer keyboard, I’m already very familiar with Serato DJ shortcut commands. I would love if djay Pro 2 has a selectable drop down in the “shortcuts” menu that allowed me to select Serato DJ or Traktor shortcuts.
However, I will mention that shortcuts on djay Pro 2 are totally customizable. You can save presets and make the keyboard shortcuts your own, but it just takes some time out of your day to map those commands.

Added Costs for Extra FX
Wonderful effects designed by Sugar Bytes are available for an extra add on purchase ($9.99). Even though these effects are priced very low, it would be nice if the cost was included with the program.

Many of them are designed to extract featuresfrom a large number of audio files. BPM analyzer uses a single pass algorithm to calculate the tempo.

Automix AI
Yes, this feature was just mentioned in the “Pros” section, but I feel the need to point out how scary it is that machines can do what humans do. Obviously I don’t think AI will be replacing DJs anytime soon, and AI cannot perform up to the level of a professional DJ, but checking out what the AI feature can do really lets you know to step your game up because the robots are coming!

Bottom line, djay Pro 2 is a great program! For the price point and cool features that djay pro 2 has, I’d say it definitely stacks up against the competition. If you’re looking for a forward-thinking and user-friendly way to mix and create your DJ sets, djay Pro 2 is a perfect option.”

Forget those splitter cables – the latest update to Algoriddim’s djay 2 for Android DJ software was released today, and it lets you use the onboard sound cards of supported DJ controllers, meaning you can finally connect your headphones and speakers straight to your controller for full stereo headphone cueing and master output.

Previously, controllers like the Reloop Beatpad and Pioneer DDJ-WeGO3 worked only as Midi devices, so you still had to run a splitter cable like the Griffin DJ Cable from your Android device’s headphone jack to hook up your speakers and headphones, which has always been an ingenious solution to headphones cueing with just a single stereo audio output, but is hardly ideal. This update solves that.

Android DJing comes of age

It’s about time that Android users get a full mobile DJing experience whenever they use a DJ app with an all-in-one hardware controller. iOS users have been enjoying this for quite some time and are spoiled for choice, both in terms of DJ apps (eg Traktor DJ, djay 2, Cross DJ, etc) as well as compatible DJ controllers (Traktor Kontrol S2 mk2, and both the Pioneer DDJ-WeGO3 and Reloop Beatpad come to mind).

The latest version of Android OS (5.0 Lollipop) makes multi-channel audio output possible, so do note that you’ll have to upgrade your Android device to the latest OS version to make this work. It looks like we’re finally seeing the platform move closer to standing toe-to-toe with iOS in the DJing department…

• djay Free was also released by Algoriddim today, which is a free to download app that retains many of the features of djay 2, such as Spotify integration, onboard effects and controller integration. Find out more at the Algoriddim website.
