Top 10 iOS DJing and music production apps

Want to know which is the best iOS DJing and music production app for you? Check out this Top 10...


2. Djay

Algoriddim’s Mac-based Djay is a popular DJing application, and rightly so. It’s not bloated or complex, and that’s where its strength lies – in its simplicity.

Algoriddim’s iOS implementation is a pretty faithful port, letting you control the speed of a track, add special effects such as echo and phaser, and drop the needle of the virtual deck wherever you want to.

You can also view the waveforms of each track and scratch tracks using the virtual deck platter, although the glass screen of an iOS device isn’t suitable for cutting “Frrressh” or “Aaahh!”

The best thing about it is Technics-like wind-down when you press stop. Nice.

1. iMaschine

IMashine lets you sketch out beats and grooves on the move using 16 drum pads, two keyboards and an audio recorder. Once you’ve created your catchy killer groove you can export it as an audio file.

The gain, panning and volume of each section can be modified to suit your needs, and you can easily select and apply up to two effects to your track, such as chorus, delay and flanger, which greatly enhances the depth and realism of your composition.

OMaschine is an extremely addictive app that makes it easier than ever to jot down those killer grooves that pop into your head. Top dog.
