Algoriddim, the maker of the djay for Mac application, released djay for iPad today. The app gives both aspiring and practiced djays a pair of virtual turntables and multiple controls, as well as full access to the music stored on the iPad and much more.
The app’s description includes this list of highlighted features:
- Direct access to iPod library
- Realistic low-latency turntable interface
- Automix mode with automatic transition control (Fade, Backspin, Reverse, Brake, Random)
- Live Recording (with built–in organizer for recorded performances)
- Seamless AirPlay integration (wirelessly transmit your mix to Apple TV or AirPort Express station)
- Pre–Cueing (with optional headphones adapter)
- BPM analysis with automatic beat and tempo matching
- Full visual waveform with beat–synchronized scrubbing
- High–quality scratching
- Mixer, Tempo and EQ controls
- Cue Point Trigger
- Fully optimized for iOS 4.2 multitasking and background operation
Algoriddim has created a video highlighting the app’s capabilities:
Priced at $19.99, the app is a bargain compared to the traditional full DJ set-up, not to mention the convenience of not needing to carry around physical turntables and vinyl records. While it’s not cheap compared to many apps in the App Store, its price presents a remarkably low barrier for iPad owners looking to break into DJing or completely convert their current DJ equipment set-up.
