  • Apply a range of realtime effects such as Eargasms or Dub Delays to the player’s microphone and combine the result with your music.

Air & RjDj Spread The Reactive Music Love Just In Time For Valentines Day

Air-Blog-ArtworkJust in time for Valentines Day, RJDJ has partnered with the French music duo Air to launch a new application, Love by Air (App Store link) that creates reactive music, based on their single Love.

Air, made up of Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel, worked with RJDJ to create five, real-time “soundscapes” that enable fans to listen to Love in a new way, as an exclusive app only version.

The app offers five reactive music remixes for Love:

  • Chanter – puts your voice in the music, letting you sing, speak or add your own sounds into the mix
  • Harmonie – vocodes sounds in realtime and makes them harmonise with the music
  • Papillon – samples tiny segments of sounds and creates audio butterflies from them, flying around inside the music
  • Voler – creates a rising texture of sound by sampling reality and layering / filtering them with the music
  • Voyage – takes you on a musical journey through all of the soundscapes

The RJDJ Air App is now available in the Apple App Store for $1.99.
