DJ-1800 Adds Extensive Support for Hardware Controllers
Highly regarded DJ software for Mac got better. 27/10/05
Version 2.2 provides extra support for DJ control surfaces from Helrcules, Kontrol-DJ and any other MIDI controller. The new version also features a clearer interface, which is even more responsive when new tunes are loaded.
Dave Addey, CEO of DJ-1800 said: â€œWe know how popular controllers are with
our DJs and we wanted to make their professional lives even easier. Now when you are out at a gig, you can still play all your favourite music from your computer with DJ-1800, but you can control it with real buttons, dials and faders.â€�
DJ-1800 features an intuitive drag and drop integration with Apple's own iTunes software, making playback simple.
DJ-1800 version 2.2 also includes the following new features:
New song position bar to enable you to jump to any point in a song
BPM values are loaded from iTunes to read on screen
Other bug fixes and improvements
Users who have previously bought DJ-1800 can upgrade to version 2.2 of the software for free.
