djay is a digital music mixing software program for Mac OS X, iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch created by the German company algoriddim. It allows playback and mixing of digital audio files with a user interface that tries to simulate the concept of "two turntables and a microphone" on a computer. Before the commercial release in November 2007, djay had initially been released as freeware in June 2006.[1] In December 2010 the software was also released for the iPad,[2] and subsequently for iPhone and iPod touch in March 2011.[3]

Compared to professional DJ software like Traktor Scratch and Serato Scratch Live, the software aims to be easier to use and to have a look and feel more akin to other Mac software.[4][5] Its interface consists of two turntables, a mixer and a music library showing songs and playlists from iTunes.

djay for iPad received an Apple Design Award in 2011.[6]
