Mix your iTunes music with Algoriddim’s djay, the No.1 DJ app,
and Vestax Spin2
Tokyo, Japan – December 4 2012 – Vestax Spin2, the world’s first DJ MIDI
controller certified by Apple Inc. to control DJ applications on Mac, iPad, iPhone and
iPod Touch is now available from Apple stores in the U.S. and Canada.
Spin2 is an all-in-one 2-channel DJ controller designed together with Algoriddim, the
creators of the popular music-mixing djay apps for Mac, iPad and iPhone, and the
video-mixing app vjay for iPad & iPhone. Spin2 plug & plays with each popular app
from Algoriddim, skipping complicated setups to immediately mix songs from iTunes
libraries and videos in media libraries.
“Algoriddim djay has really changed who can DJ and be creative mixing music,” says
Vestax President Toshi Nakama. “With a massive number of djay downloads for the
iPhone alone, Algorridim has proven that DJing is changing. This is why we designed
Spin2 to seamlessly plug and play with Apple’s devices, and give Algorridim djay
users hands on control to take their creativity to the next level.”
Spin2 is bundled with djay for Mac and takes full control of all of its essential features
with a simplified easy to use layout. DJs can access desired parts of songs instantly
with the Touch Strip control, jump to cue points, trigger loops, add effects, play
samples, scratch with jog wheels, instantly sync the BPM of songs and record their
mixes all from Spin2.
“Vestax has over 25 years of experience in the professional DJ market, so we were
very excited to collaborate with them on Spin2,” stated Algoriddim CEO, Karim
Morsy. “Spin2 works with both Mac and iOS versions of our popular djay apps. It also
works with our video mixing app, vjay. With multichannel audio, Spin2 gives users the
ability to privately cue upcoming songs in stereo fully taking advantage of iOS 6.”
Spin2 supports the new multi-channel and multi-route audio features of Apple’s latest
iOS 6, which enables DJs to cue and output their mixes in full stereo with their iPad,
iPhone and iPod Touch. Spin2 also supports previous iOS versions by splitting the
stereo channel into two mono signals and sending each to master and cue. All songs
are processed and output through the studio grade 24bit/48kHz built-in audio
interface, with premium sound quality and at its true clarity.
