[] Munich, Germany - algoriddim, makers of the line of djay products for Mac and iOS devices, today released version 4 of its highly acclaimed djay for Mac. Optimized for OS X Lion, djay 4.0 for Mac is a sophisticated and highly addictive music app with unmatched performance, yet easy enough for anyone at any level to learn. The software features a stunning visual interface that enables music lovers of all types to compose beats, DJ a party, create playlists or simply enable Automix and enjoy their iTunes collection in a whole new way.

djay for Mac continues to build upon algoriddim's philosophy of creating accessible DJ tools for all users. Pros and beginners alike will find new features, such as Harmonic Match(TM) and enhanced audio FX, significantly improve the experience of mixing music on the Mac. With the introduction of the new visual key match wheel, djay automatically registers a song's key and matches it to songs of the same key within an iTunes music library. This first-of-its-kind integration of harmonic mixing capabilities enables easy mashups that are pitch-perfect.

With the needs of professional DJs in mind, djay for Mac now has even more pro-level features such as: visual waveforms, customizable audio FX, advanced MIDI integration, and the ability to change the color scheme from light to dark for easier viewing in nightclubs or anywhere the lights are low.

Combining everything we learned from our successful iPad and iPhone apps, we have re-written djay from the ground up. We are particularly excited about our latest innovation, Harmonic Match, which greatly simplifies the complex task of finding songs that sound great when mixed together," said Karim Morsy, CEO of algoriddim. "Our highly successful iPad and iPhone apps have clearly shown that the way forward for software is with the App Store, therefore we are shifting our distribution of djay for Mac exclusively to the Mac App Store, as we believe it is the future for the Mac platform."
