meta.DJ has come to the iPhone – dispensing with the turntable metaphors and adding loop playback, a virtual drum machine or synth parts.
meta.dj for iPhone is a free download (App Store link), but has a $4.99 in-app upgrade that adds many features.
The free version offers:
iTunes LIBRARY INTEGRATION
Easily pull in any track from your iTunes library.
EZ CUE/LOOP PRESETS
Set-up Cue points and Looped regions of your tracks as easy to use Presets. Auto-loop lets you throw in a loop on the fly and work it down to the sub-beat, bounce loop level. Work some effects on your loops to make it rise, then hit the drop.
AUTOMATIC TEMPO/BPM MATCHING
meta.DJ analyzes your iTunes tracks, shows you the BPM, and can conform tracks to play back at whatever master BPM you select. Or turn it off if you just want the track to play at it’s original tempo.
TWO VIRTUAL DEVICES – YOU CHOOSE WHAT TO USE!
Add any two virtual devices anytime. YOU decide between Track Decks, drum machines, synth parts and loop-based smart instruments and add them any time in your set.
drumtron for INSTANT, DYNAMIC BEATS
A new take on the drum machine built for performance. You control the intensity/energy level of every drum part (kick, snare, etc) to push the mix or make ’em chill.
SaMPL3R for a SPRINKLING OF SYNTH
Based on grüvtron, you get a smart instrument for getting quick access to arpeggios, bass parts and more in ANY key at any tempo.
Mix and manipulate loops using a Looptastic device based on Sound Trends’ best-selling loop performance app Looptastic.
COOL EFFECTS UNDER XY PAD CONTROL
You get EQ, Filter, Delay and Stutter Gate effects, up to four (4) effects per device. Upgrade from the Free to the Full version for even MORE effects.
At the airport and at the last minute wish you had some cool, new House loops? Just go to the in-app Loop Store and select from offerings (some even free) that include loops from indie dance producers and established library companies (like beatport, Sonic Reality, AMG and others).
