IK Multimedia Introduces DJ Rig for iPad

Posted by Mikers On October - 1 - 2012 ADD COMMENTS

IK Multimedia, the world leader in mobile music-creation apps and accessories, announced today that DJ Rig for iPad® is now available on the App Store. DJ Rig for iPad takes mobile DJ mixing to a completely new level, providing a comprehensive suite of professional DJ mixing tools, all in one convenient iPad app. DJ Rig for iPad greatly expands the feature set from DJ Rig for iPhone, offering numerous new capabilities that previously have only been available on professional DJ software for the Mac and PC.

DJ Rig for iPad

With DJ Rig for iPad, mobile DJs will possess the virtual equivalent of a full professional DJ setup – two turntables or CD players, a DJ mixer, a DJ multi-effects unit, a phrase sampler and more, all in an portable package to take their spin to the next level, anytime and anywhere.

DJ Rig for iPad is a fully self-contained DJ environment that can be directly connected to a sound system, but even more functionality is available when it’s used in tandem with IK’s new iRig MIX ultra-compact mobile DJ mixer. iRig Mix offers complete physical track control, thanks to its full-length channel faders and crossfaders, additional EQs, and direct connections for headphones, microphones, loudspeakers or a PA system. When used together, DJ Rig and iRig MIX provide a comprehensive DJ setup that packs all the features the most demanding DJs need – all in an ultra-light combo rig that can be up and running in seconds.

Professional DJing for the first time on iPad

  • Familiar double Deck configuration with a triple twist – When first launched, DJ Rig for iPad looks and feels very familiar – its interface accurately replicates a full dual-deck hardware rig with each deck routed through the audio output jack on the iPad (split stereo). What’s different is that each deck has three visual modes: “Vinyl” for traditional creative scratch effects, “Digital” jog for a more traditional CD manipulation and the new “Waveform” view for accurate cue placement, synchronization and visualization of beats.
  • Sync, mix & scratch – DJ Rig for iPad with CloneDeck™ technology allows DJs to mix and scratch on their iPads, just like they would with hardware counterparts. The built-in dual-deck system with a crossfader allows them to mix with ultra-accurate precision, and the Tempo Sync, X-Sync and Beat Match functions automatically align the beats from any two sources for flawless transitions. The new AutoMix feature will automatically crossfade and mix music to keep the beat going even when the DJ steps away.
  • New creative DJ effects provide unlimited sonic possibilities – DJ Rig for iPad features 18 available BPM-synced DJ effects for customizing mixes and build-ups, always at the perfect tempo. Effects include Delay, Flanger, Crush, HP filter, LP filter, BP filter, Compressor, Wah, Phaser, Fuzz, Reverb, and Stutter, plus 6 completely new effects: Noise, Tail, Brake, Spin, Twist UP and Twist DOWN. The X/Y effects interface provides full creative control and real-time manipulation that will inspire DJs to be their creative best.
  • On-board sampler with expandable sound banks – DJ Rig for iPad features an “on-the-fly” sampler with 9 accessible and assignable pads for adding sound bites and samples to mixes. For even more creative flexibility, DJ Rig for iPad provides “live sampling” and “looping” functions for completely customizing and personalizing the mix.

DJ Rig for iPad features:

  • Customizable deck display with Vinyl, Waveform or Digital Deck interface with accurate scratching engine with CloneDeck™ technology
  • Waveform display mode for ultra-precise visual cueing
  • Fast BPM detection and beat map analysis with Tempo Sync and Beat Match
  • X-Sync mode detects the BPM from external audio sources and automatically syncs the audio/tempo of internal decks to external devices (when used with iRig MIX)
  • Advanced looping section with continuous loop surface; create loops with tempo divisions always to the beat; manual and slip mode available
  • 18 effects: Delay, Flanger, Crush, HP filter, LP filter, BP filter, Compressor, Wah, Phaser, Fuzz, Reverb, Stutter and more, with X/Y touch interface control
  • 6 new creative effects: Noise, Tail, Brake, Spin, Twist UP and Twist DOWN
  • On-the-fly expandable sampler machine with 9 pads and 4 banks slot
  • Live sampling functionality with volume and pitch control
  • 5 visual cue points per song and Auto Cue for automatic first beat positioning
  • 3 crossfader curves for customizing fades and crossfade filter
  • Direct access to iPod Music library and playlists
  • AutoMix Feature for automatic mixing of playlists or entire library
  • Live recorder allows recording of full mixing gigs
  • Supports/plays all major digital audio formats including MP3, AAC, WAV, AIFF
  • Multiple output configurations for virtually any audio setup

Review: Numark iDJ Pro Controller

Posted by Mikers On June - 27 - 2012 ADD COMMENTS

In a first for PromusicAPPS, we’re delighted to present our inaugural ‘contributor review’ from Steve, who is as passionate about all things music on iOS as we are. So read on for his take on Numark’s new iPad friendly DJ controller. 

 

I recently had the pleasure of taking the new Numark iDJ Pro for a spin: literally. I was extremely excited at the prospect of taking nothing but the controller and my iPad to a set and still being able to express myself rather than just mixing one track to the next. I was however quite sceptical as Numark’s first attempt at an iPad based controller, the iDJ, was well… a toy. BUT by appearances alone it’s clear that this isn’t the case with the iDJ Pro, with Numark claiming that it is the first iPad based controller to offer professional features and controls… Sounds good to me!

 

If you’re familiar with Numark controllers, or any CD deck for that matter, there’ll be no uncertainty with the layout. It’s got two touch-sensitive platters that are used for cueing and scratching effects, but also for looping in and out with the option of ½ and 2X loop length. The rest is pretty much as you’d expect with the pitch fader and bend controls etc, so I wouldn’t exactly describe it as feature rich, but definitely sufficient. To be fair though, if you’re paying this sort of money, a traditional controller wouldn’t have much more features.

 

Now to the interesting bit… With the iPad firmly planted in the centre of the controller, it adds an element of uncertainty. As you’d expect the iPad is the control centre of the unit, including the music library. You’re app of choice is down to you and there’s no shortage of options, however I would highly recommend the partnered Algoriddim djay app. In normal circumstances this wouldn’t be my preferred choice but both app and controller seem really in sync and well coordinated and just that much easier to use.

 

One of the most unique features, excluding the iPad of course, is the Airplay compatibility, which I think subtly indicates Numark’s intentions. Imagine going to a house party and seeing the iDJ Pro pumping out tunes wirelessly to you’re compatible speakers, with no wires or setting up required. This combined with its robust, brushed aluminium casing should stop even the drunkest of idiots from harming you’re controller. In contrast to this, however, the iDJ Pro does contain balanced XLR outputs for secure and feedback free connections to PA systems. Although in all honesty, I wouldn’t DJ a venue any larger than a bar with it.

 

So you’ve got to look at the Numark iDJ Pro for what it is, it’s not a top of the range, feature rich Numark Controller, and it was never going to be at £350. But it is great fun and really convenient, and is the perfect setup for a home or bar. If you already have an iPad then I would highly recommend it, but for the price of both iPad and controller combined then I would invest in something better.
