djay pro is coming. And that’s all we have on it. Well that’s a lie, but that’s all we can say. For now.
(RED) is doing good work to help eliminate AIDS. And this week, Apple and (RED) have turned the App Store red, and Algoriddim has in turn made djay 2 for iPhone and iPad (RED) to help with their worthy cause.
The winners (yes plural) of the recent Algoriddim Android giveaway have been announced. Check in to see if your name is listed.
In at this deep end, this old Apple block had to suffer the torment of spending two whole weeks making eight different Android devices dance for Algoriddim’s latest round of videos. But instead of sending them all to Algoriddim, they’ve said that we can give one away. And to win it, all you have to do is tell us why you think your DJ life will be better, and which device it’ll be.
We’ve got three winners for the Friday Giveaway Griffin DJ Connect audio interfaces. Check to see if you’re one of them!
Some may like to think that the Algoriddim people have had their fingers in their ears shouting “lalala I can’t hear you” when reading online comments about the lack of Android version to match the iOS and OS X versions of their djay software. Nothing could be further from the truth, and announced today is what many people wanted — djay 2 for Android.
In his last round of demo duties, Rob Anderson walks us through Pioneer’s tiny powerhouse of a controller. The DDJ-WeGO3 might not have the extensive feature set of the big boys, but it can certainly work properly with more software than just about any other controller on the market right now.
Pioneer’s DDJ range of controllers has a specific aim — to offer Serato DJ to users of all budgets. But none of them cater for iOS, thus the DDJ-WeGO3 has been reworked to focus on algoriddim djay, down to having an iPad slot at the rear and including necessary adaptors. But the WeGO3 isn’t a one trick pony — it can be used with Serato DJ Intro, VDJ LE, and djay for Mac right out of the box.
With iOS being multi-channel audio capable, it’s time for hardware manufacturers to step up and harness the 30 pin and Lightning ports, and to finally bring real stereo outputs for headphones and speakers. Griffin has always been active in the Apple peripheral market, and has made the DJ Connect — a small and eye-catching bus powered audio interface that means saying goodbye to the mono splitter cable.
Applying their established controller skills to the iOS market, the Reloop Beatpad wears many hats, but is aimed at algoriddim’s djay. Review follows.
