djay Remote drops for iPhone

Summary:djay Remote is a new $5 app which turns your iPhone and iPod touch into a DJ controller.

If you're into DJing, check out djay Remote ($5, App Store), a new app which turns your iPhone and iPod touch into a full-blown DJ controller. The app controls Algoriddim's excellent djay 3.0 ($50) software, which allows you to mix, blend and scratch tracks from your iTunes library on two virtual turntables. (djay was one of my Best In Show picks at Macworld 2010 and 2009).

The new app allows you to control djay’s unique features from an iPhone via Wi-Fi connection and allows the DJ to roam around the party or dancefloor while staying in the mix the entire time. Here is a quick punch list of its features:

  • Seamless integration with djay via WiFi (two-way-synchronous)
  • Ultra-low latency
  • Full access to the user’s entire iTunes library on the Mac
  • Automix function, for superior, convenient control
  • Multi-Touch enabled mixing in real-time
  • Individual control of dual turntables for scratching, cueing, skipping, and other effects
  • EQ and volume controls
  • An intuitive user interface that mimics djay's acclaimed design and ease of use, including a timeline with time/artist display, turntables with cover artwork, and rotating vinyl
