Apple unveiled a brand new iPad Pro model at today’s Apple Special Event. It takes after the company’s hulking 13″ iPad Pro model in internal specs, but shoehorned into the classic iPad 9.7″ form factor. We’re excited for this model in particular because it has the potential to take iPad DJing into new territory.
Cross DJ 1.4 for iPad now plays nicely with a whole host of controller from the likes of Pioneer, Numark, Hercules, Vestax and MixVibes themselves.
37-year-old Digital DJ Tips reader Edelso writes: “I’m upgrading from a cheap Numark iDJ unit that I use with an iPad and Algoriddim’s djay app.”
Want to use your iPad instead of your laptop to DJ with? If you own a Pioneer DDJ-WeGo or Pioneer DDJ-Ergo, now you can, thanks to the DDJ-WeCAi cable, announced by Pioneer today and available as of May 2013.
Check out this crazy idea from Ion Audio, hot from the floor of the CES Show via the BBC. It’s an array of stick-on accessories to turn an iPad into a set of physical controls for DJing.
Not so long ago we reviewed version 4.0 of DJ Player, the iOS DJ app that many serious iOS DJs have taken to heart. Since then the team at iMect has been busy working on improvements. The question is, what else could the development team give us without moving too far away from the clear professional workflow of the previous version?
Ever since MixVibes showed an early iOS version of its well-regarded Cross DJ system at Musikmesse earlier this year, we have been eagerly waiting to bring you a review. Finally, with the app due to hit the app store shortly, I’ve been able to spend a week of quality time with it.
