AirVinyl was created from within Air Studios, London's finest recording studio complex to recreate the ambience, warmth and experience of vinyl recordings, transforming your MP3 and digital music collection into your record collection, bringing back all the warmth of analogue harmonics.
Choose your records from any of the crates where your collection is kept and play single tracks or albums on the authentic teak and brushed steel AirVinyl record deck. If you want to compile your favourite songs together into one playlist, you can create a Mixtape and play it in the AirVinyl cassette deck. Any playlists you have stored on iPad will be accessible as Mixtapes too.
The audio output from AirVinyl has been enhanced by the award winning audio engineers at Air Studios to recreate the audio ambience originally intended by the artist. Use AirPlay to wirelessly connect to your hifi or entertainment centre and your iPad becomes a quality audio component.
Use the free AirStreem Mac app to stream your entire iTunes Music library from your Mac to your iPhone.

Air Vinyl App
When I was brought up I was listening to old cassette tapes, old vinyl records and CDs, then along came digital format, mp3. Although not really noticing it at the time but the difference in sound quality between CD and mp3 is huge. Now all you get is over compressed tracks just to make them louder, which really is ruining the listening experience. I admit that I do download mp3 quality tracks from iTunes more than I buy physical CD now, but due to record shops closing down you really don't have much choice these days. After a long time of searching around for an app to make mp3 sound better I came across this amazing app, The Air Vinyl app, I don't know how they did it but it really works, I love the warmth and depth you get from the vinyl player, but the cassette function is ridiculous, it's so bright and punchy, has plenty or clarity but still provides nice low end depth. This is a seriously cool app and if your a music lover and love listening to music then you need to get this app, and the best part is,nth at its free :)
Buggy Playback On Vinyl Play & Un-User Friendly Responses
Nice idea, but there are better apps out there like 'Vinyl' that let you do a lot more than this app does.
I just got this & chose a track to play. I put it on the deck, it made the sound of the needle hitting the wax and then.....NOTHING. IT DIDN'T PLAY ANYTHING. ZILTCH. NADA. There was just SILENCE. I moved the needle, & it just played....NOTHING. The Mixtape section worked, but the actual thing I bought it for didn't play a thing.
I WANT MY MONEY BACK. IT DOESN'T WORK.
***DO NOT BUY UNTIL THEY FIX THIS***
They could improve this dramatically by firstly:
1. GETTING THE BLOODY THING TO PLAY AUDIO ON THE VINYL INSTEAD OF NOTHING!!! (I'm using an iPad Air)
2. Allowing you to touch the vinyl & thus allowing you to scratch, stop or start the vinyl.
3. Allow you to place the needle anywhere on the vinyl & then NOT putting the needle BACK to the start of the track.
4. Have the ability & ease to pick up the needle arm & smoothly place it anywhere on the vinyl.
5. FREE SKINS as buying an app that DOESN'T WORK PROPERLY & charging £2.25 for the privilege is, quite frankly a rip off.
Until they sort out the app bug of not playing any audio when you chose a track to play, but only letting to hear the needle hit the vinyl, I'd stay WELL CLEAR of this.
Oh, & did I say I want my £2.25 back???
Great app, need help
As a vinyl lover this app is a stunning compromise when i am on the road. For some reason the album artwork doesn't show though, which is a bit annoying (for music just dumped on the ipad ie npt through itunes store)
Any help solving this is highly appreciated
