The world of djing has changed quite a bit since the iPhone and iPad. Companies like Algoriddim released djay, a popular DJ app that has won an Apple Design Award. DJ controllers have started interfacing with these kinds of apps, but a new product called the Vestax Spin 2 is the world’s first MIDI controller created exclusively for djay and vjay, Algoriddim’s two iOS and Mac apps.
Developed as a joint effort between Vestax and Algoriddim, the Spin 2 is a portable, studio-grade mixer and controller with touch-sensitive jogwheels, sample pads, and strip touch control. The controller works with both djay and vjay, Algoriddim’s music and video mixing apps. The Spin 2 can be setup to work with an iPhone, iPad, and Mac running the software.
