LIVKONTROL, by Imaginando, is an app designed to control Ableton Live remotely via an iPhone or iPad. The beauty of LIVKONTROL is in its simplicity, and I love the fact that it focuses on doing a handful of things perfectly instead of trying to do everything mediocrely. LIVKONTROL connects with [...]

iMashup iPad App Review

I’ve been using Mixed In Key for years and absolutely love it. If you’re not familiar with this software, it basically “dumbs down” harmonic mixing so that anyone can do it. After using Mixed In Key to scan your music library, the key of each track is identified, then assigned [...]

In a world full of DJ apps for $9.99 or less, a $47.99 app definitely stands out. DJ Player by iMect Ltd is one such app. DJ Player advertises itself as a “PREMIUM DJing solution for iOS devices.” Well, it already has the premium price tag, but is this merely [...]
