Finally, after a teasing and beta period that drove the gaggle of potential customers insane with software lust on an epic scale, The One from Audio Artery is finally available.
I first saw The One over breakfast at the Hilton Hotel at BPM 2011. And then again at NAMM, Musikmesse, BPM, NAMM etc for what seems like an eternity. But then it went into beta, something that the DJWORX team has been very active in as well, feeding back our assorted experiences that have gone to shape The One into a proper V1 release.
For those not in the know, The One’s big thing is modularity and its ability to craft an interface that works for you. The One can basically create an experience that fits your needs and workflow. This even goes down to audio routing levels too, where you can drag and drop inputs and outputs to a pretty crazy level. It’s the total antithesis of software like Traktor and Serato that make you work within their way of doing things. If you’re prepared to put in the work, it’s a breath of fresh air.
It’s only on Windows at first. The plan is to get it into the hands of users on a single platform to hone the initial user experience, and then roll those changes rapidly out to Mac users as well. Thankfully, you can try before you buy with a demo version first, which I did in Parallels on my iMac and it ran just fine. If your inner early adopter is screaming at you to grab the full version and jump headlong into the abyss of version 1, then you can buy it for a €49.99 via The One’s web shop.
More official PR will appear in the coming days and weeks. But for now, why not try out the demo and offer some feedback in the comments.
