The folks behind the popular djay apps for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad, Algoriddim, have released their first special edition app. The djay – David Guetta Edition app is available now in the App Store. But, is it worth its premium price?
Available for $7.99, the iPhone app offers the same amazing DJ tools available on the standard edition iPhone app, plus a few unique twists.
Named after the superstar DJ and producer, djay – David Guetta Edition features five of Guetta’s electro tracks from the deluxe edition of his new album, “Nothing But The Beat.” These include: “Lunar,” “Little Bad Girl Instrument,” “Sunshine,” “Glasgow,” and “Paris.”
In addition, the app comes with a live sampler with 12 exclusive David Guetta signature sounds, including six synths and six drum beats. It also includes a portrait (single deck) mode not available on the other djay apps.
Take a look:
Other features include:
- Direct access to iPod library
- Hyper-realistic low-latency turntable interface
- Automix mode with automatic transition control (Fade, Backspin, Reverse, Brake, and Random)
- Automatic beat and tempo matching (BPM sync)
- Looping (Auto, Manual, and Bounce)
- Cue Point Trigger
- Live Recording
- Seamless AirPlay integration (wirelessly transmit your mix to Apple TV or AirPort Express base station)
- Pre-Cueing (with optional headphone adapter)
- Full visual waveform
- High-quality scratching
- Mixer, tempo, and EQ controls
- Beat-synchronized scrubbing
- Support for all major audio formats including MP3, AAC, WAV, AIFF (no support for DRM protected songs)
- Fully optimized for iOS multitasking and background operation
At $7.99, djay – David Guetta Edition is $7 more than the standard iPhone app. However, when you consider that the five tracks included are priced at $1.29 each in iTunes ($6.45 for all), the app is actually reasonably priced. Besides, the app’s portrait (single deck) view alone might make it worth it for many.
Note – The five tracks included within the djay – David Guetta Edition will not play within any other music app.
