"Great program that works perfectly!"

December 21, 2010  |  By RareWaves

 |  Version: djay 3.1.2

Pros

Great features. Interface very intuitive. Low latency. If your music library is well organized (I have a well organized iTunes library), it's easy to grab songs from a playlist. The FX work well. The preference settings offer a lot of options.

Cons

I had to practice on it a lot to finally feel comfortable with all the settings and features. I wish it had automated key matching. If someone gives you songs to play from a flash drive, they have to be added from the Finder instead of the library.

Summary

I've used this program for over 2 years in both live and practice settings. I play a wide variety of music and have many file types and they all play nice together. I like that it plays iTunes m4p files (obviously it won't let you "record" protected files). The better you organize your iTunes library, the easier accessing music will be. One small inconvenience is if you want to play songs from an external drive or flash drive, unless you add them to your iTunes library, they wont show up in the djay library window. You'd have to open a Finder window and drag the file to the turntable. This could be a challenge as you can't see the meta-tags or filter and sort quite as easily as the library can. But it does work!

My original version was part of one of those nice Mac bundles, so it was basically free, then I paid about $25 for the version 3 upgrade, so the overall price has been worth it. I've used a few other DJ programs, but to be honest, I haven't used other programs enough to make a fair comparison. I just like this application a lot and have never had any crashes or freezes (although knowing the processor requirements, I imagine it runs better with a faster CPU and plenty of RAM). Mine is running on a current model Mac with up to date OS.

I also just noted algoriddim released djay for iPad in early December 2010. I haven't tried that yet, but will for sure consider that for live, mobile gigs. I highly recommend djay 3.1.2.
