Good app can be a lot better though
I finally took the plunge and bought this app even though it's ridiculously expensive. I'm confused as to why the developers decided to remove the recording feature that is present in baby scratch though. This app is great and people need to stop complaining about how you can't put your music in straight from your iPad. That is a limitation put on developers by Apple and there is no way to get around it. If the developers implement the voice recording that they had in baby scratch then this would definitely be a 5 star app... But I really hope that for $25 the developers at least have the decency of continuing to update the app with features like voice recording and saving your mix. Then it would be worth every penny.
Responsive, sounds great, and FUN!
What strikes me the most about Baby Decks is how responsive it is. From the decks themselves to the fader, to the transform buttons, there is zero latency. The included samples are terrific - they even include a battle record with some well-known scratches. Sound quality is terrific. They also nailed the torque on the decks - anyone using 1200s will feel right at home on these virtual decks.
The digital fader works surprisingly well, the transform buttons are even better.
The only feedback/criticism I have is that the pitch slider seems to have too broad of a range. I'm sure the developers can either fine-tune it or make it user-adjustable. Otherwise, everything is just perfect. Other virtual decks have lag and latency issues, not this one.

The App is great however there are a few nags!
being that the platers are so small you tend to run your fingers over the arms and displace your self.
The tracking tends to lag after a few moves.
The tracking don't keep up with human speed.
there a small bit of latency.
Due to the lack of touch sense you cant alter the pitch by holding the tips or gliding your fingers over the "record"
Lastly at least for now, the cross fader does not actually fade.
from the center position to 95 to 98 % left or right no fade, it just cuts ( mutes ) the respective turntable!
Also it would be nice to have a single Table view.
This way we can just cue up some tune and groove along with it while gaining extra space.
There is an App out there that figured out out to simulate touch sense using the mic ( Headphone or audio cable must be used to that the mic does not pick up the speaker) who knows if Im dreaming.
Maybe there could be a IPAD pro with a new Retina display that responds to not only touch but is also sensitive to pressure.
This would take Music apps to a whole new level but then again some bloke would slap the ipad to hard and blame apple for the glass breaking lol.
The app works fine for my needs just a few things. Im sure there are those out there who are able to master the functionality as is.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
