Djay For iPad Adds Dual Stereo Output For Proper Song Cueing

DJing on the iPad just got real. Or something. I'm not really sure if that's how disc jockeys speak. What I do know is that Algoriddim's Djay 1.6 adds some major new features thanks to iOS 6. What kind of features? Oh, you know… Just things like full dual stereo outputs for monitoring and playing different songs at the same time.

It's called "multi-route audio", and if you have a USB or HDMI audio output, you can send the app's output to it while cueing up another track using your headphones. Before iOS 6, this needed a clumsy workaround involving a headphone splitter and two mono feeds. Sadly you can't jack in pair of headphones and use AirPlay speakers for the other output, but it's still pretty fantastic.

You can also browse the iTunes Store form within the app (another iOS 6 exclusive), and browse your iTunes library from a small popover (with search).

In all, it's a very slick update. I'd probably use it all the time just for regular music playback, if only I actually kept any music on my iPad. These days it's all Spotify and iCloud, and Djay can't (yet, at least) stream your music direct from iCloud.

Djay 1.6 is a free update for existing users, and currently $5 for new buyers.
