The ultimate party app for the digital music generation, djay is an app for the amateur Armand van Helden in all of us, letting you mix your iTunes with all the professional precision of a platter-spinning pro.
One for those that never grew up and still wallow in nightclub nostalgia, djay is the easiest way to recreate those banging Ibiza times and choons in the comfort of your own home.
The interface is a convincing facsimile of a set of decks, complete with three-band equalisers, line faders, gain and a cross fader, on which you can indulge in not just the most immersive music mixing app available, but the most immersive music app full stop.
And that’s no exaggeration. djay may be pricey but it justifies its expense by being an app for the music lover like no other. Just take two tunes from your iTunes music library and djay automatically analyses them, working out tempo and key and generating a waveform image, leaving you to mix away to your heart’s content on an interface with all the responsiveness of a real turntable, altering the BPM, adding effects, scratching and generally dazzling with your mad DJ skillz wherever you go.
Plus, as life rarely is one long party, djay also allows you to record your mixes for those times when you lack an adoring audience, saving them as high-quality AIFF files that you can then export via iTunes or, as the temptation will doubtless be, send to more famous DJs for approval.
It’s difficult to state just how good this app is in the space available here, but if you count ‘music’ and ‘fun’ as two of your favourite things, then djay is the best £13.99 you’ll spend this year.
Quite simply the best app in its class – whether you’ve the turntable-teasing skills of Judge Jules or Judge Judy, djay is the only music mixing app you’ll ever need.
