djay Pro for Mac has been updated to version 1.4.3 with a host of new features, the most important being enhanced integration with the MacBook’s Pro Touch Bar and HID integration with the TOUR1 system from Pioneer DJ (yes the one that costs more than a small family car) and the more affordable NXS2 system.
Furthermore, Algoriddim also integrates with the Pioneer DJ Link ethernet connection, meaning that you can connect 4 CDJ’s (TOUR1 or NXS2) and 1 DJM mixer (TOUR1 or NXS2) and then from the mixer connect to your Mac running djay Pro using only 1 USB cable.
On the Spotify front, djay Pro now integrates with Spotify Browse, allowing DJs to discover new curated music and use it instantly in their sets.
Finally, the update also offers support for two additional controllers, the Pioneer DJ DDJ-RB and the Numark Mixtrack Platinum.
By all means, djay Pro is great software (I have been trying to do a full review for a while now but other stuff keeps coming in the way) and runs very stable on Mac. The integration with Pioneer’s top of the line gear is a smart move as it services those Dj’s that prefer to play directly from their laptop. Do keep in mind that djay Pro is very much tied to iTunes so if you don’t use iTunes to organize your music collection, using djay Pro will be a lot of double work.
