Traktor Dj ipad app sends purists into a raging fit.
From the many Djing apps that i’ve seen and managed to tinker around with, I believe this one has the potential to convince even the most seasoned Djs.
What I really like about it is that it doesn’t look like your typical “virtual decks”, which to me comes off as lame and predictable. This app has been built from the ground up and is set to challenge the conventional design and functionality of Dj apps similar to it’s kind.
The best feature, other than a recommendation engine for other tracks that would sit well in a mix , based on tempo, key and timbre, is the Freeze Mode which allows Djs to “play” the waveforms and use it like a sampler. All this while in sync of the outgoing track. Sweet!
The app also has an in app notification centre with instructions on how to best use the app’s available functions, and for all of you lazy and wannabe Djs, a sync button is thrown in as well! How cool is that?
At the moment, the app only allows 2 “decks”, but it would be cool if you could link up 2 iPads together and voila! 4 decks for mash-up mayhem. Perhaps this feature might already be in the pipeline for future updates
At £13.99, matching Djay, the Traktor Dj app will be a serious contender in it’s space.
