DJ App Reviews: Traktor DJ for iPad and iPhone



When I'm figuring out which songs sound good together for this site, I use the iPad version of Traktor DJ to help me confirm it with a quick mix or mashup. Pretty simple to make loops, match beats with precision, adjust EQ levels, and record a cool little demo. But what do more advanced users think of this popular app? Here's a sampling:

'Traktor DJ represents a great leap forward in the world of digital DJing, making it even more convenient for DJs who can cut down on weight by leaving their laptops at home.'
- DJMag.com

'With the synchronization options available, the new key detection algorithm and the ability to correct beatgrid issues easily, Traktor DJ became an incredibly useful tool for any Traktor Pro user the moment it arrived.'
- RA Reviews

iPad version is currently $9.99, and the iPhone version is $1.99.

dj mix/mashup: do you think of me [mariah carey] x always forever [bryson tiller]

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com

DJ mix/mashup: no can do because of you (ft. Hall & Oates and Ne-Yo)

Made with Logic Pro at 113 bpm A quick clip from the last mix , and one of my favorite transitions in it. Kind of alluring, mysterious; maybe we can make a more fully realized remix/mashup someday. If you're wondering what the image is in the background at the start of the video, those are quahogs and a channeled whelk I dug out of the sand in low tide on a recent beach trip. Pretty solid haul, and good eating for sure. Although I probably should've kept them separate - apparently whelks like to eat the clams .
