Review from working DJ who bought the upgrades
Note: I use this app in portrait mode on two iPads, because I have to cue and have stereo sound with an external mixer to do my work.
The sound quality on this app is very high, and the responsiveness of the deck is very impressive.
That said, I'll first echo the criticism of others: iPad version please, especially the track selection pages which waste a tremendous amount of space that could be used to display more info about ever track.
Now, my real problems with this app:
- The paradigm is a virtual picture of real gear. I have ten fingers, not one - so why is there absolutely no support for multitouch gestures to perform? It's like this app was designed using a mouse and nobody thought about using the real capabilities of these devices. Please look at the TraxPad app for an example of touch DJ-ing done right (although the feature set is from complete).
- No minute/second timer - I need a countdown!
- I shouldn't have to tap twice to bring up track/artist info. On fond my gigs is on the radio and expect to have that information displayed more rapidly for announcing.
Overall, I find this app to be useful but not a real replacement for either one CDJ nor a full DJ setup, but I hope it'll evolve to get there.
Please consider adding AudioBus support!!!!
Not bad - but some basic improvements needed
Got the app and the rig - and used it last weekend. Overall quite happy with the results, but a few basic things are needed to make it great: 1. A simple cue button to bring the song BACK TO BEGINNING. 2. The rig claims to include the apps - would it kill you guys to give more than a free app to someone who had just spent $100 on your own hardware? The free app is already out there, so essentially this is false advertising :) 3. If you claim it works with iPad, you NEED and iPad app - seriously. I did use it with iPad and made it work, but a dedicated app would have made a huge difference! 4. Last but not least, a timer showing how much of the song is left is a MUST! Other than that, had a great time with the app and with the rig (a little too flimsy, but not bad otherwise for a little guy like this) - thank you guys!
Very solid performer. Shocked no iPad version, but I'm sure it will come.
I would say there are a couple more complete apps for free. This app lacks features required to mix (eq) without upgrade. If you try this app, don't upgrade buy the full version for $4.99. I'm sure I'll buy as soon as they have iPad native graphics.
