It seems pricey, but djay’s layout, waveform display, split output option and sync feature make it feel pro.

Looks and feels like a pair of real decks. There’s a large platter to interact with (brilliantly labelled with the artwork of the track) and a nice big crossfader at the bottom exactly where you need it. Menu options are cleverly hidden and everything’s just ‘there’.
Load in a track and it displays the beats per minute (BPM) along with a waveform. Hit Sync on a deck and it instantly jumps the track to the same BPM as the other. We love the option to split the output for a dedicated monitor channel for mixing.
Ease of mix
The djay interface feels so uncluttered and obvious. The waveform display (so you can actually see the quiet parts and breakdowns in a track) is great. We just wish the + and – buttons to nudge the track around were a bit bigger for our chunky fingers.
Simple bass, mid and treble controls, but no delays or reverbs? Is that really it? And what about a sweepable filter for true Ibiza-style drops? After such a good start emulating a ‘pro’ system, we’re very disappointed that djay doesn’t seem to have bothered
This is a simple, two-decks system with a great sync feature. There’s no sampling, effects or other tricks. It’s just like having two decks for real. We love that big iTunes-style track browser option, too. It’s a very familiar and fast way to find the track you want.
