I have been using this for some of my gigs for the past month, it works great !!! I have my iPad and a laptop with ext 1 Terabyte HD with all the tunes, and of course all going through wi-fi for streaming and remote controls.
Just plug them both into a small mixer and your good to go.
Algoriddim has just released djay for the iPad ($19.99). Djay turns any iPad into a full DJ system that allows you to mix iTunes songs using a virtual turntable, perform live, record mixes and mix playlists automatically. And what DJ app would be complete without the ability to scratch? The developers at Algoriddim used new audio features that recently came out with the iOS 4.2 update to create an amazingly realistic DJ environment.
With direct access to your iTunes library, djay allows you to load any song or playlist directly on-screen. You can then load songs onto either turntable and play, mix or scratch songs. Djay also supports pre-cueing with headphones, allowing you to preview songs before the audio goes to the main speakers.
The developers at Algoriddim are putting the latest features of iOS 4.2 to good use in this latest app. DJs can stream music to nearby Apple TV’s, AirPort base stations or even AirPlay-compatible speaker systems. Djay also supports iOS 4 multitasking, so DJs can do other things like surf the net while songs play in the background.
As more and more developers embrace the iOS platform as a legitimate tool for music production, apps like djay will continue to expand our perception of what an iPad can do. The iPad was released less than a year ago and already there are an abundance of great apps for musicians and DJs. Bands like Gorillaz are already writing albums on iPads and I’m sure this is just the beginning.
