Mac djay Software Gets Multitouch Support

Algoriddim’s music player and DJ software djay 2.2 has been updated – now letting you control almost all functions through intuitive Multi-Touch finger gestures on notebook trackpads.

“djay allows users to control almost all aspects of its user interface faster and more precisely than using the keyboard — similar to real physical devices, but much more versatile,” according to algoriddim CEO Karim Morsy.

djay supports a variety of trackpad gestures.

Similar to using the iPod’s click-wheel, users can use rotate gestures on the trackpad to quickly browse djay’s built-in iTunes library and throw a selected song on one of the turntables with an intuitive swipe gesture. Two-finger gestures allow scratching MP3s on the virtual turntables, crossfading between songs and adjusting speed, volume and equalizer sliders just like with a real turntable and mixer setup.

Two-finger gestures are supported on all Mac notebooks featuring two-finger scrolling, making the feature available to most users with iBook, PowerBook, MacBook or MacBook Pro computers. For even more control, users of the MacBook Air and the latest MacBook and MacBook Pro models can use the additional three-finger swipe and rotate gestures.

djay is available for $49.99 or €39.99 as an immediate download from the algoriddim website, or as a product box from the Apple Online Store and Apple Retail Stores worldwide. A demo is available at the Algoriddim site.
