IK Multimedia DJ Rig FREE is now available on iTunes 27/04/12
IK Multimedia has announced that DJ Rig FREE, a free version of their pro-quality DJ mixing app for iPhone, is now available in the iTunes App store. Here's what IK has to say about it in their own words...
DJ Rig FREE is the perfect companion for the soon to be released iRig™ MIX portable DJ mixer for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and together they provide the most portable and innovative setup for mobile DJs and musicians using iOS devices.
DJ Rig FREE offers double-deck DJ mixing with instant song-playing from the device's music library, with automatic tempo sync and, for the first time on an iOS app: beat matching, allowing anyone to perfectly synchronize any song just like a pro DJ – but with just one touch of a button.
All the controls needed for an inspired mixing experience are included in DJ Rig FREE such as tempo controls for fine tuning BPM adjustments, multiple crossfader curves, a waveform display that can be dragged and zoomed, and an accurate scratch engine modelled on real deck behaviour with IK's proprietary CloneDeck™ technology for scratching with cut-to-the-beat and a live recorder to capture the full mix performance and export it easily.
Further augmenting the app's capabilities, DJ Rig FREE also includes a beat-synced effect (filter) with XY touch interface and a sampler machine with a set of 9 sample pads and one sample bank. These can be used to enhance the remixing performance or record and play your own samples on top of your mixes. More effects (up to 12) and sample banks (up to 15) can be added via in-app purchase by upgrading to the full version of DJ Rig or getting the Pro-bundle pack, which also includes multiple (4) visual cue-points.
Most notably, DJ Rig also includes X-Sync. This feature, when used with iRig Mix, unlocks the full capability of the iRig DJ system. For the first time it is now possible for anyone to synchronize the app's audio with any other external audio source. This can be a second iOS device of course, but DJ's can now also sync to external CD and MP3 players! DJ Rig FREE features
