“We’ve dramatically expanded djay’s capabilities by offering new features and integration with existing hardware,” said Karim Morsy, CEO of algoriddim. “djay is already known for its precision and ease of use, but with this update we wanted to bring the quality of the user’s musical experience to a new level. Fans that prefer a real hands-on approach now have an amazing array of choices when using the program: the new djay Keyboard Cover; djay’s dedicated controller, the Vestax Spin; and now some of the best controllers on the market. In addition, we’ve also boosted some of djay’s popular tools that make it easier than ever to create perfect mixes.“
