Stream from iPad DJ Apps to Sonos. iDJ2 & Traktor. INSTANT PARTY
This seems like a no brainer to me. DJ Apps on the iPad are great, but sound output is limited, you have to be cabled. I Believe if this was a reality i would have already bought 2 more play 5 to replace my wired amp & speaker set up. Streaming the output from these apps to a multi room event would be a match made in heaven, its what Sonos set out to do isnt it? Then think of the commercial application, bars, clubs, open ipad night... THATS A FREEBIE BUT IM AVAILABLE FOR CONSULTATION 😉 Thank you & please support this idea. Matt ...and why not any laptop app come to mention, Logic, gargeband, reason, ableton etc etc - This could be big.

I have just bought a Sonos system yesterday and today realised there is no way of streaming music using the ITunes Djay 2 app through my soundbar and play1's. Gutted!
When not mixing myself, I always use the automix feature on Djay app when listening to my unmixed playlists of house music and will now have to put up with long drum intros and gaps in between.
Really disappointed with the purchase now.
It's $59, but it works well. First, start a broadcast through Nicecast using your DJ software (I used Djay for Mac). Go to the Broadcast pane in Nicecast, hit the "Share" button and copy the "local" M3u link. Go to Sonos and add a Radio Station under Manage using that local M3u link from Nicecast. Open Radio in Sonos and start streaming the link you just put in. I had about 3 second delay from the sound on my laptop to the Sonos speakers, but it worked just fine.
Are there actually no dj apps supported by Sonos?
How is this possible???
Sonos may not wish to deal with issue of there being a slight processing delay from the line-in to the sound-out. Making it pretty much impossible to use as dj speakers. Maybe a software update might be possible to delay by pass the processing, but I suspect it's a hardware issue.
Now, where's that elephant? 😉
1) Sonos hardly ever talks about what is in development or not.
2) The Sonos Music Partners API allows any service who wishes to integrate with Sonos' app to do so for free. The have to be willing to do so.
3) As of version 7.0, Sonos has developed Direct Control functionality, allowing services to access Sonos via their own native app. Again, this requires development by the third party to incorporate this into their app.
So the ball seems to be firmly in the court of the third party developers/services. You should take this info to them and point out that Sonos is ready and eager to work with them, all they have to do is ask.
