[prMac.com] Starnberg, Germany - algoriddim, creators of the award-winning djay software for the Mac, is excited to announce that professional and basement DJs alike can start spinning sooner with the Vestax Spin DJ controller, now shipping exclusively from the Apple Store within 24 hours of purchase. The wider availability of the immensely popular product means less time waiting and more time making algoriddim's djay software dance to every input from the Spin's authentic jog wheels.
With the recent introduction of algoriddim's djay v3.1.1, Spin users can take advantage of enhanced MIDI Learn Options, improved latency and the ability to auto-save cue points set from the controller. In addition, the Spin is now compatible with algoriddim's djay Remote app, enabling iPhone and iPod touch devices to sync up wirelessly with a user's iTunes library for the easiest transition from the DJ booth to the dance floor.
"We're thrilled with the huge demand for the Vestax Spin Controller, and the supreme ease with which algoriddim's djay software integrates to give DJs of all levels an intuitive, authentic experience," said Karim Morsy, CEO of algoriddim. "With the Apple Store restocked, enthusiasts can have fun taking their craft to the next level while also enjoying the addictive new features of algoriddim's djay 3.1.1 and djay Remote app."
The Spin DJ controller is designed specifically for the Mac, and mimics the classic setup of two turntables and a mixer, providing the control and physical sensation of mixing and scratching on actual records. Using the crossfader and controls for speed, looping, cue points, effects and EQ, the user can smoothly fade from one song to another and apply professional-grade effects. The Spin controller also includes a built-in audio interface with a microphone input and two stereo outputs for headphones and master. It easily connects to any Mac via USB.
* Touch Sensor Jog Wheels: High resolution, touch-sensitive jog wheels enable the user to DJ like in analog mode when scratching or mixing
* Multi Channel Audio System: Spin comes with high quality sound for monitoring, master output and a separate microphone input
* Compact and Light: Completely travel friendly, the unit is perfect for Mac users on-the-go. A simple USB cable and djay 3 will have the user spinning wherever they please
