Algoriddim has introduced djay Pro AI, an upgrade to its popular DJing app for iOS, which is powered by Neural Mix technology. The tech allows DJs to separate a track’s vocals, drums, and harmonics in real time.

The ability to isolate these elements of a track expands the possibilities for creating live remixes, without needing pre-existing acapella or instrumental versions.

Watch Algoriddim’s teaser video below, along with Crossfader‘s walkthrough which mentions the Beatsource LINK functionality now available in the djay app.

The public beta of Beatsource LINK is currently open to everyone. Sign up for a 30-day free trial here.

Following its recent launch with VirtualDJ, Beatsource LINK has announced an integration with Hercules’ DJUCED 5 performance software. DJUCED is included with Hercules‘ DJ controllers and is used by over 650,000 users worldwide.

Beatsource LINK, which launched in early May, lets DJs stream millions of tracks and access hundreds of curated playlists in their performance software. Premium subscriptions offer Beatsource’s patented offline locker, which enables DJs to perform without an internet connection.

Beatport LINK, which is based on the same technology as Beatsource LINK, is also available in DJUCED 5.

Beatsource LINK can also be used with Pioneer DJ’s rekordbox 6.0.1, Algoriddim’s djay and djay Pro, and VirtualDJ. More integrations are scheduled for this year.

A free trial of LINK is available on Beatsource’s website. Learn how to use LINK with Hercules here.

Check out VirtualDJ’s introduction video below. Note that it shows Beatport LINK, which, as mentioned above, is built on the same technology as Beatsource LINK. Beatport LINK, however, offers a dance and electronic-centric catalog, whereas Beatsource LINK provides a wide variety of genres.
