The iDJ Pro is an iPad based DJ controller. Its dual platter setup allows you to insert your iPad into the center of the unit for direct access to its touch screen layout. With your iPad locked in, you can pull up a DJ app and use it to interact with the controller.
Algoriddim’s djay app is set up specifically for this purpose and seems to work well with the iDJ Pro. However, it is worth noting that there are other DJ apps you can use as well.
We wouldn’t consider the iDJ Pro an overwhelmingly feature-laden controller, but for iOS it makes some serious strides toward that outcome. The Airplay features have a lot of potential as they allow you to maximize the wireless capabilities of your iPad for the benefit your set.
iDJ Pro is certainly a step in the right direction for DJ’s looking to make serious use of their iPad. If you fit that bill then we recommend you check it out.
vjay is an app that allows you to creatively bring together audio and video clips to create an authentic media experience. You can create your own music videos, mash up different songs, and more.
It comes with a wealth of features like the ability to loop, cue, and slice audio and video; real time effects; customized video transitions; Video scratch; Auto Gain; Auto Sync, and Beat Matching.
While vjay is a feature-laden, innovative app for the iPad, it also has some kinks that need to be worked out. Most notable, is the fact is doesn’t handle 1080HD.
With that being said, this is still a revolutionary app for the iPad. Algoriddim has clearly put a lot of time into creating it, so we’re confident that updates will bring many welcomed additions and improvements.
It’s on sale for $9.99, but we’re not sure how long the sale will last.
