Bangers is a new iOS video game that's just been launched, based around remixing big dance tunes. Think of it as Rock Band or Guitar Hero, but for DJ/producers who are into commercial dance music. It's got tracks from superstars like Skrillex and Martin Garrix, plus other songs that you can mash together.
Algoriddim, creators of djay, just won an Apple Design 2016 award for a new feature in djay Pro that lets the visually impaired use it. When VoiceOver is activated in djay Pro, users can hear a description of any control that they tap on the djay Pro interface.
Korg just announced the PlugKEY for iOS. It's an audio and Midi interface that connects to your iPhone or iPad via Lightning, and lets you hook up any Midi-enabled keyboard to control your favourite iOS music apps.
Blocs, creators of the Blocs Wave loop creation and music making app for iPhone and iPad, just launched a new version of it. Blocs Wave now comes with Slice mode that lets you chop up and layer portions of loops, samples, and even recordings that you've made.
Serato just launched Pyro, an free iOS music playlist app aimed squarely at consumers (ie non-DJs). It can automatically arrange songs in a playlist according to how well they'd go together, and then you can leave it running throughout the entire party as it seamlessly mixes all the tunes you've picked.
A tiny Dutch company drew massive attention last year for a Kickstarter-funded project that promised physical knobs for your touchscreen device. Called Tuna Knobs, the small plastic knobs are fitted with suction cups for sticking on your iOS or Android device so you can finally tweak knobs instead of dragging with your fingers.
Lemur for the iPad lets you program your dream Midi controller on the iPad's touchscreen surface. It can control virtually any DJ/production software, and you can download mappings or program yourself from scratch. It offers awesome potential for the adventurous digital DJ.
