Such a let down
Such a let down considering who's name is attached to this app. I want to believe mike wouldn't let something like this be released.
It's in my top dj apps for scratching, but baby scratch beats this by a lot in my opinion. It does have more features and the use of library songs is a big plus, but the way the turntables are set up on screen is pretty bad. If there was just one turntable or more of the turntables were shown on screen I'd like it more and the scratching is slow.
Overall I regret purchasing this and I really think they should release a lite version. I will continue to mess around with it since I have it, but baby scratch will be my main scratch app. I'd like to add that I have problems with flare scratch so that's why I stick with baby scratch.
Must-have for the glitch FX alone
Wheelz of Steel is incredibly well put-togther. The controls are responsive and they nailed the physics of turntables. The program gives a generous number of cue points per track for awesome juggling.
My favorite feature, hands-down, are the glitch FX which work in real-time. Between the glitch and the cue points/loops, I use the app for incredible remixes - its a lot of fun.
So intuitive and fun!
I am a total novice and have been having a blast with this! It is so fun!
