There are a huge number of DJ apps available but sorting out the best ones is not always that easy, but Native Instruments Traktor has been one of the most popular DJ systems for a while now, and the Traktor DJ iPad app is perfect for budding musicians of all levels.
The new application was released on the App Store towards the end of last month, and will turn the tablet PC into an almost complete DJ interface that is perfect for all skill levels to enjoy. Many other DJ applications have virtual turntables and other controls cluttering up the screen, but Traktor DJ allows users to simply touch and manipulate the waveforms of the playing tracks directly.
It will place beats into areas that can be tapped as the tracks are loaded from the users iTunes library, so you then can move around in a track by tapping the waveform, and loops can be set anywhere by using two fingers to tap the display.
The application has been designed by the same team responsible for the full version, and makes full use of the iPad’s touch control system. You can play tracks on up to four decks adding a number of studio quality effects, and the Traktor much famed Remix Deck technology is present.
You can control either turntables or CD decks thanks to the Traktor Scratch digital vinyl systems, and those that have already downloaded the application have given it excellent reviews. Traktor DJ iPad app is available on the App Store for £13.99/$19.99. Check out the demo video below.
