World Class Digital DJing for the iPhone?

by djsharpe on March 14, 2010

Yes, you read that right… Capsulated Software Ltd., announced the availability of Cue.Play.DJ. 1.0, the most advanced digital DJing solution ever created for the iPhone OS platform. CUE.PLAY.DJ has the needs of existing DJs in mind, offering a familiar interface and feature-set comparable to existing desktop digital DJ solutions costing hundreds of dollars, while sporting a $9.99 price point that lowers the barrier of entry to anyone seeking to become a real DJ. The real kicker here is that DJ/Producer Ferry Corsten collaborated and put his input into the project.

Personally, Ferry Corsten has always been someone that has put out records that truly touched me. I have played over the years MANY tracks by Ferry that simply blew me away….

Now back to the iPhone app: Version 1.0 of Cue.Play.DJ. also ships with CUE.PLAY.SETLIST., a desktop (Mac OS X/Windows) companion application that allows users to load their own tracks into the mobile application. CUE.PLAY.SETLIST also becomes a conduit that allows Cue.Play.DJ. to stream its master output channel to the desktop, allowing DJs to cue and play on their phones while the final mixed performance is sent through speakers attached to the desktop. CUE.PLAY.SETLIST also allows DJs to record their sets for future playback as an uninterrupted mix.

Here are some few key features that I will expand on as I dig into the app and give my opinion:

Cue.Play.DJ. Key Features:
* Industry standard interface familiar to all DJs
* Simultaneous playback of 2 tracks at CD-quality (wav/mp3/m4a supported)
* +/- 10% pitch capabilities
* 3-Band EQ w/Gain
* Crossfader

* Master Output Streaming to CUE.PLAY.SETLIST (Can be recorded)

* 53.3 MB

As of now Pricing and Availability rheu iTunes is:
Cue.Play.DJ. 1.0 is $9.99 USD (or the equivalent) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Music category.

Please take a minute and comment back, I am very curious as to where the digital DJ world?
