[prMac.com] Starnberg, Germany - Today algoriddim released version 2.3 of djay, its intuitive DJ software for iTunes. The new version now integrates with Nicecast from Rogue Amoeba, allowing users to easily broadcast their DJ mix online to listeners around the world and making djay the perfect solution for online radio DJs or anyone who wants to broadcast their favorite music.
"The combination of djay and Nicecast is a killer duo," says Paul Kafasis, CEO of Rogue Amoeba. "Now DJs can create live sets with ease using all the playback and mixing powers of djay and then broadcast a great stream to the world, with our own Nicecast broadcasting tool. Setting up a live internet stream should be easy, and with the tag-team of djay and Nicecast, it is!"
With Nicecast, djay can be used to broadcast music to all major online radio networks including Live365, Shoutcast and Icecast. The seamless integration of Nicecast and djay makes setup easy. After selecting djay as the music source in Nicecast, information about the current song will be provided to listeners automatically. Users can play and mix music live, or enable djay's Automix mode to mix any playlist from iTunes automatically with DJ-style transitions.
In addition to the integration with Nicecast, djay 2.3 includes a new power button for each turntable, which precisely simulates how real turntables gradually slow down the record when being turning off. And a new Auto Select mode for djay's Pre-Cueing feature allows users to automatically listen to one turntable on their headphones while the other is playing through the main speakers. With this, selecting and preparing a new song from the integrated iTunes library becomes even easier than before.
djay is a groundbreaking music player and DJ software. Turning your Mac into a full-blown DJ setup using your iTunes library, djay lets you mix your favorite music with two interactive virtual turntables.
