Numark’s iDJ app has been updated and is also on sale for only $1.99 for a while. Here’s the press release I got from Numark which has all the details:
Numark’s iDJ app debuted as one of the most popular music apps for iPad. Version 1.2 adds support for iPhone and iPod touch and is the easiest way to create seamless, synchronized playlists by importing songs directly from the iPod music library on an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 4.
Playlists created in standard music libraries simply crossfade from song to song without concern for tempo or volume. This often leads to jarring, off-time transitions with noticeable changes in volume levels or even brief silences. Numark’s iDJ app solves this problem by intelligently analyzing music to ensure that a crystal-clear, smooth transition takes place between songs just like a DJ would do. The iDJ app allows anyone to make instant, continuous mixtapes of their favorite songs all blended together as one in perfect rhythm.
As fun as it is powerful, iDJ’s elegant interface and patented technology enables anyone to assemble customized soundtracks that ignite, accompany and enhance every occasion. Perfect for creating mixes for fitness classes or personal workouts, parties, road trips, or any other event where you want to make perfect music mixes, iDJ keeps the music moving and completely in time for an exciting new playlist experience.
iDJ’s music management system is both simple and streamlined, letting users quickly build playlists using any song within their iTunes music library or from the iPod library on the device itself. Simply browse the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch’s music library within iDJ, touch the song desired and then drag in over to the song cue. iDJ’s patented BPM (beats per minute) detection technology takes it from there. As songs are added, iDJ analyzes their sonic-waveforms, calculates tempos and then automatically performs optimal transitions throughout the playlist. In the DJ world, it’s called “beat-matching”; the art of sequencing multiple songs in succession at the same speed as if one continual song. The end result is a playlist that flows from start to finish as one cohesive track.
For over 30 years, Numark has been a leader in designing, manufacturing and distributing professional DJ equipment throughout the world. With iDJ, Numark has teamed up with MixMeister, a company known for creating high quality DJ software that can be used by anyone to create great DJ mixes. Together, Numark and MixMeister have delivered the first true music-mixing application for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch that everyone can enjoy, from beginners to professionals.
“We incorporated the knowledge of experienced DJs and developed the first iOS app that makes perfect song transitions without the hassle of learning DJ techniques,” said Chris Roman, Product Development Manager, Numark. “Now anyone can make playlists that sound like a professional DJ is making it happen.”
The iDJ app from Numark is available now from the iTunes App Store at a special limited-time price of $1.99 U.S.
