The DAI will play & mix .MP3, .WAV & .CDA audio files & includes all the controls needed for real-time remixing, including jog wheels on either side of the controller that can be used to create scratching-type effects. In addition, the DAI will automatically find the nearest beat when setting a cue point or mixing tracks. The user-friendly, intuitive DAI controller is separated into two players, w/a touch-sensitive screen between them that shows the current track playlist w/track progress bar & BPM counter. Tracks can be sorted by artist, title or BPM (ascending & descending order). The on-screen keyboard allows quick song retrieval by automatically narrowing the search field as you type. Built-in GrabŪ technology allows one-button-push looping, w/adjustments for moving the loop backward & forward one beat at a time. The user can also lengthen or shorten loops on the fly, allowing for true real-time remixing. This grabbing function always exits the loop at the end of the measure unless the user tells it otherwise. The DAI also includes an Auto Pilot feature w/fully automated mixing & tempo matching. This acts as a helping feature & eliminates dead air between songs. Auto Pilot detects the end of the currently playing track & mixes in the next song automatically, aligning the beats & matching the tempos. Auto Pilot only kicks in during the last 15 seconds of a track & can be left on as a safeguard without interfering w/the units other controls. The DAI controller works in tandem w/its companion PVDJ software package, which is built around a 56-bit audio engine. The software requires no additional drivers-it runs using existing Windows or Mac OSX drivers. The DAI is a true "plug & play" interface; if either the USB or power cord is unplugged, the DAI will pick up exactly where it left off once the cord is replaced, without rebooting.
