Being a DJ looks like a right laugh, doesn’t it? Mushing records together, pointing at people for no good reason, refusing to play Spandau Ballet. The only real downside is that accumulating an impressive music collection and the right decks to play on them costs a small fortune.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could do your DJing with your iOS device and music library instead? Well, say hello to Edjing Mix.
Use the automatic sync button to make your second song play in time with the first, often with hilarious consequences, and you can lock the pitch so it doesn’t sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks when you increase the track tempo.
You can add audio effects such as echoes and flangers, and you can also punctuate proceedings with the sound of a cash machine or an air horn. That latter one is probably best avoided if you’re MCing at your gran’s 90th.
Edjing Mix is surprisingly powerful. The beat matching works well, you can easily loop interesting bits of songs and you can set up Hot Cues to trigger certain sounds. It even enables you to emulate certain superstar DJs: you can record your set in advance and then simply replay it while you jump around and point at things. Sorted!
