::::::: Use streaming Internet music to DJ

Search SoundCloud for tracks, or use ones you've Favorited or even uploaded yourself. Use the massive catalog of songs uploaded daily to SoundCloud to mix to your heart's content.
You are also free to use any songs on your iPhone or iPod touch, too!
::::::: Choose tracks and play back immediately
Once you select a track, you can play it back right away.
The app converts it into a sound file on-the-fly in the background, meaning there's no waiting for it to download or convert. *1
The circular progress indicator around the import button indicates how far the conversion has progressed, or, when streaming, how much has been downloaded so far.
*1 Note that when streaming, latency in your Internet connection or wireless conditions may cause a delay.
::::::: Just tap waveforms to scratch
Touch interface offers intuitive control. Touch the sound waveforms directly to scratch in a desired part of the track.
Waveforms can be displayed in either scratch mode or birds-eye mode. In scratch mode, a 1-second waveform is displayed -- move that waveform around to create a scratch just like on an analog record.
In birds-eye mode, the waveform for the entire track is displayed. Tap anywhere on the track to jump to that point.
::::::: Pre-cueing feature enables easy access
By using the Pre-cueing feature on each deck, you can output the sound from that deck to a channel other than the one playing back to the audience.
Use this function to smoothly link tracks together.
::::::: Use up to 6 samplers
Each deck includes 3 samplers you can use to store samples up to 5 seconds in length.
Any data you sample is saved after you close the app, so you can keep using your favorite samples again and again.
::::::: Time stretch, plus four other effects included.
Use the time stretch function to speed up playback by 50-200% without changing the beat. Track speed is automatically made uniform throughout the track, ensuring that sound quality stays constant.
Also included are 4 effects: EQ, HighPass/LowPass filter, BitCrusher, and Gate.
