Algoriddim has just released Djay 2 for iPad and iPhone (as separate apps), with lots of improvements to the popular DJ app. However, the most important new feature isn't even listed on their iTunes page: it has Audiobus support, opening up a huge array of possible effects and destinations for your mix!
To celebrate Djay 2's release Algoriddim are also giving away Vjay today!

You may have noticed a huge gap in the stories posted today, and that is because a copy of Djay 2 landed in my inbox!
I immediately hooked it up in Audiobus with Echo Pad and lost track of time. The original Djay was so popular because of how easy it made the process of DJing, albiet in a simplified and dumbed-down sort of way. Everyone could have fun playing around with it. Djay 2's Perfect Sync™ continues this tradition by being far more than a goofy, and ponderously trademarked, buzz word. It really is effortless to sync up tracks so you feel like a badass when you're riding the crossfader.
Today I had such a solid bit going in Djay 2, while flailing my arms around in Echo Pad, that I cracked my elbow and funny bone! No shit, that was really weird! I plan on blowing huge chunks of the day exploring all the possible Audiobus connections available here. You could pair it with KoalaSan and start streaming out your DJ sets on Shoutcast!
