Why We’re Moving to Subscriptions. After more than 8 years as a paid-for app, djay for iOS is changing. With the latest release, we are now offering a single universal app as a free download which offers everything you need to DJ, along with an affordable new monthly Pro subscription service with power user features, video mixing, music production tools, and most importantly, unlimited.
(MUNICH, Germany) – December 12, 2017 – Algoriddim, creators of the world’s best selling DJ app with over 30 million downloads, today released djay Pro 2 for Mac. The multiple award-winning DJ software has been taken to the next level with a modernized user interface, countless new features, and advanced music analysis tools that make it even easier for DJs to focus on their performance. djay Pro 2 allows users to directly access their Spotify account to find, play, and mix millions of songs in pristine sound quality with up to 320 kbps. Its extensive integration with Spotify’s Browse section provides curated playlists for DJs to instantly discover new music by mood, genre, and popularity.
“Algoriddim has redefined DJ software with djay Pro for Mac and iOS,” said Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim. “This next generation of djay Pro adds a host of new features for live performance, playlist management, and music analysis. And we’re incredibly excited to introduce Automix AI, a revolutionary technology that will assist DJs and change the way people listen to music.”
Using machine learning and training sets from human DJs, Automix AI intelligently identifies rhythmic patterns and the best intro and outro sections of songs. Automix AI calculates optimal fade durations and automatically applies parameter changes to EQs and filters for a seamless transition. Beats and tempos are matched using Morph which ensures that a song’s BPM is maintained during a transition. This innovative song mixing technology allows for seamless cross-genre mixes with varying tempo.
Using Match, an innovative song recommendation engine powered by Spotify, users get a continuous queue based on danceability, BPM, key, and music style. Automix AI allows users to fully lean back and enjoy the mix, yet users still have full manual control over Automix AI settings on-the-fly, as well as the ability to change the source music at any time. Using the transition button, users can trigger a seamless mix to the next song at any time.
Advanced Media Library: Spotify, iTunes, Videos, Photos, File System
Successful DJing is dependent upon having a well organised media library. New in djay Pro 2 is an advanced library management system that is built around a sophisticated integration with Spotify, iTunes, Video, Photos, and the file system. djay Pro 2 now also offers its own playlists that make music management easier than ever. These appear in their own tab in the library manager, and allow users to create their own custom and smart playlists. Via the split view, users can even manage their songs from iTunes and Spotify side by side. To help organize users playlists and quickly locate songs, djay Pro 2 includes a powerful Smart Filter. With 12 different criteria, users can create rules that display exactly what they need, either to create permanent playlists, or to temporarily find a specific song.
People love music as much as they love their photos. Therefore, djay Pro 2 introduces PhotoBeat and unifies music with photos in a first-of-its-kind way. Users can simply drag an album or a selection of photos onto the visual decks and djay Pro 2 instantly creates a perfectly beat-matched slideshow in perfect harmony with the music. Photos are cycled on beat and the rate can be adjusted on-the-fly in a range of a ¼ beat all the way up to 4 beats per photo. Users can also apply effects to their photos in just the same way as video, as well project the visual output via an external monitor through HDMI or AirPlay.
Every feature of djay Pro 2 has been carefully adapted for Accessibility, so vision impaired users can seamlessly dive into the experience. With VoiceOver enabled, users hear a description of everything happening on their screen through their headphones independent of the mix that is playing through the main speakers. This fundamentally transforms the workflow for vision impaired users and opens to them the door to live creativity on their Mac like never before.

djay Pro 2 includes a full keyboard editor which allows users to assign any feature in djay Pro 2 to a custom keyboard shortcut. /izotope-ozone-1.html.

Our journey so far
Since the beginning, Algoriddim’s mission has been to make DJing accessible to everyone, anywhere, at any time. When we launched the first version of djay back in 2006, it was completely free as we wanted to remove any barriers whatsoever for casual music listeners to embrace the art of DJing. This had a profound impact on DJing for years to come.
As our user base grew and as users grew with our app, they started to need more advanced features. We listened to our users’ feedback and took djay to retail in 2007 as a $50 purchase available through our online store and as a CD/boxed software in physical stores (djay was originally printed on CDs and sent across the globe.. we’ve come a long way!). A considerable number of users of the free version updated right when we announced the $50 upgrade. We were blown away by the loyal support of these early adopters.
Those users helped bootstrap Algoriddim and it has allowed us to continuously improve and expand our app. We have stayed independent ever since, thanks to the millions of djay users around the world, who have contributed to the global phenomenon that djay is today.
Why have we made djay free with an optional subscription?
With smartphones and tablets being so ubiquitous now, we want to once again open up DJing to even more people than ever before. We decided to make djay a free download again. Moreover, in the same way that djay made mixing music accessible to the masses, we wanted to do the same for creating music… music production relies on access to an extensive library of content.
For a high quality and seamless experience we have licensed content from world-class artists and labels. Moving to in-app subscription gives us an easy way to add more packs, more sounds, more videos, in a way that ensures everyone has access to the same downloads, without further cost barrier. Customers pay monthly to access every official download as they’re added.
No more paid upgrades

In the past, we would release one major update every two to three years, as a paid upgrade or new app. Since the App Store (the main distribution channel to purchase our apps) didn’t provide a way to distinguish between new and existing customers there was no way we could reward existing users for their loyalty any more.
While we published constant smaller updates throughout the year, this long release cycle meant we would also have to hold back major features for the next major release, resulting in a sometimes long wait to include them. With the new subscription model, our team can now focus on making the existing version the best product with every innovation going directly into the product as soon as it’s ready.
Djay Pro Free Download
Over the years we have built eight different versions of djay and vjay on the iOS App Store alone, and we couldn’t even offer cross-grade between the apps: customers had to buy the apps on both iPhone and iPad individually, and pay for add-ons such as effects separately. With this new release of djay, we wanted to simplify the process and unify the brand. With the free download, users that choose to subscribe only pay as long as they need to use the app, and don’t have to worry about different features or versions of the app across all of their iOS devices.
Djay Pro Trial
Subscription provides ongoing value

The change to subscriptions allows us to offer a free trial before customers choose to spend money. In the past, the iOS apps were full price before even being able to try. And unlike the traditional model on desktop where you offer demo versions with stripped down functionality (thanks to the old shareware mindset of the 1990s), the free trial implemented as part of the subscription model on the App Store allows you to use the full experience for a full week. It’s the ultimate try before you buy experience!
