MixVibes has released Cross DJ for Android, an app they call the ‘first pro DJ app’ for the platform.

Here’s a demo of Cross DJ for Android in action:

    • Accurate BPM detection, right down to the last decimal.
    • Sync button: one-press, and the 2 tracks never go out of phase.
    • Manual pitch & pitch bend.
    • Beat-grid editing, to sync your old tracks correctly.
    • Parallel waveforms: to visually check if your tracks are synced.
    • Quantize mode: set hot cues & loops automatically on the beat.
    • Smart-seek: Tap on the waveform to fast-forward & get a seamless jump.
  • Audio Performance
    • Low latency: music reacts instantly to your actions.
    • Extremely realistic scratch sound.
    • 15 effects (Bi-filter, Low-pass, Hi-Pass, Delay, Echo, Phaser, Flanger, Cut, Crush, Bliss, Brake, Roll, etc.)
    • No loading time when starting-up the app.

    1. For everything low latency Mugician-style I agree its unusable, But for everything using a sequencer its really not as bad as you say (and you’d be surprise how little people use non-sequenced stuff these days).

      There are also some great drum machines on Android (which do not go out of tempo like some bad tongues say), and of course Caustic.

      But I don`t think you will care about all of this because you are just here to badmouth Android.

    2. Aaah the good old glorious PC master race debate is still raging on I see?

      Android is an inferior music-making platform maybe, but its superior in every other aspects, and its the reason why its now the most used mobile OS and why IOS has been relegated to music-making.

  1. I’ll have to save up for the new Nexus 5 before I could use this app. It would require more memory than what I currently have on a pathetic Samsung! It looks good for “Testers”.

  2. I’ve tried it out on my S3, not bad, very simple to use. Crashes sometimes. You can’t do many fancy things with it and it sounds a bit amateur, but then that’s exactly what I am when it comes to mixing. Would like to give it a go on a tablet with a broader library of tracks than I have on my phone.

  3. I’ve installe din on my Note II last week, and it’s a lot better than I thought. I was using Traktor DJ on iPad in several gigs and radio shows, so I was really curious about this.

    Well, it works really well on my Note II, basic as someone said above, but fun to use. The screen real estate and the crossfader curves are bad, but otherwise it’s a really good start. I was playing a short DJ mix with it today in our radio show, and again, it was fun to jam with it. Well done Mixvibes!

  4. Interesting how SOME of you can’t seem to understand that this is not a “music-making” app, but a DJ app. BIG difference. If you have a problem with Android as a music-making OS, too bad. Don’t buy it. But shut up. It gets old. WE GET IT.
