Djay from algoriddim.com is an awesome piece of software. It plugs into your itunes library and lets you spin and mix on two virtual record decks.
The application is intuitive and easy, and the best facsimile I’ve ever seen of actually spinning the wheels of steel on a computer. Combined with the fact that it’s free this is a brilliant application to play around with and to have up and running at parties.
- drag and drop straight onto the ‘decks’ from a searchable list of your itunes library;
- manually tap out the bpm of your tracks and have djay automatically adjust the tempo of either playing track to the other;
- cue points which let you specify three points of a record and jump back to them at the click of a button;
- independent tempo and pitch adjustments – alter the pitch without affecting the tempo, or use both together to get a different tempo and the original pitch;
- crossfader automation, independently affecting tempo, pitch, eq and pan;
- easy recording of your masterpiece mixes.
- pre cueing (if you have a multi-channel sound card or a USB iMic) to listen to one track on your headphones while playing the other through the speakers.
All in all an excellent application which takes seconds to start having fun with and offers enough features to let you lose yourself in the mix.
