Algoriddim recently published their latest Mac OSX version of djay software, which is one of the first desktop applications to integrate Spotify into the DJ environment on the desktop. The company has been working more behind the scenes and now is announcing a new development with Pioneer. The djay 2 and djay free app for Android now supports advanced performance features including low latency, multi-channel audio output and full support for Pioneer's DDJ-WeGO3. Read more below how Algoriddim is giving Android users the chance to start DJing with their device.
This morning Serato DJ is making an appearance in a lot of new pieces of gear at NAMM 2015 like the Mixtrack Pro 3, NS7III, Denon DS1 interface, and of course the updated Rane TTM57MKII. But Serato has been working behind the scenes to bring support for their software to many of the mainstay club mixers and is unveiling support for them on the NAMM convention floor.
Pioneer has one more trick up their sleeve for NAMM 2015: a complete update to their top-of-the-line DJ headphones, the HDJ-2000MK2s. The update comes alongside their entry into the studio monitoring headphone world, the HRM-7s. Read on for details on the new cans!

Coming up just 24 hours after of their much-talked-about XDJ-RX annoucement, Pioneer DJ has another new surprise for the industry, a new set of headphones, the HRM-7s. These are professional studio monitoring headphones with producers in mind a bit of a departure for Pioneer from their traditional fare which mostly caters to DJ applications.
Ever since Pioneer properly got into the controller game back in 2011 with the DDJ-S1/T1, DJs around the world have been waiting for the company to bring the standalone experience of two CDJs and a mixer to the controller world. After a first pass with the XDJ-R1, Pioneer's new XDJ-RX appears to be a true merger of CDJ and controller experiences.
Serato has just launched a new minor update to the Serato DJ software (version 1.7.3) that adds official HID support for the new Pioneer XDJ-1000, the new media player that's ditched the CD drives. The new update means the entire XDJ unit "pre-mapped to Serato DJ when using HID mode, allowing you to use the XDJ-1000 to control many of Serato DJ’s features such as, Library Navigation, Looping, Slip Mode, Cue Points, Quantize, Sync and much more."
Over the last few years, the 'CDJ that doesn't play CDs' has taken on almost mythical status in the DJ world, spoken of in hushed tones by those claiming to be in-the-know, and those who claimed to know somebody else who was. What is perhaps surprising, though, is that the first CD-less player is not a top-end replacement for the CDJ 2000 Nexus, but in fact a replacement for the more budget-minded CDJ-850. An interesting move on Pioneer's part – but has it paid off?
DJs around the world use the Pioneer DJM 900 mixer in regular gigs without taking advantage of its powerful on board effects. In today’s article, Ean shares techniques on how to use creative crossfader routing and additional effects layered on white noise to generate a very playable tone useful for almost any style of DJing.
