New Numark app simplifies creation of custom playlists 11/11/10
Numark has introduced the iDJ app for iPad. Here's their press release with all the details...
The iDJ app is designed to allow fitness instructors, DJs and music fans of all kinds to easily and quickly create playlists on their iPad that perfectly match beats from song to song for custom mixtapes, CDs or parties.
Playlists created in standard music libraries simply crossfade from one song to another without concern for the beats in the two tracks. This often leads to poor-sounding transitions, changes in volume levels or brief silence as the transition happens. Numark's iDJ app solves this problem by intelligently analyzing music to ensure that a crystal-clear, smooth transition takes place between songs, as you would find in music mixes created by experienced DJs. The iDJ app is the easiest way to create seamless, synchronized playlists using any iTunes music library on an iPad.
The iDJ app allows anyone to make instant, continuous mixtapes of their favorite songs complete with seamless transitions from one song to the next in perfect rhythm. As fun as it is powerful, iDJ's elegant interface and patented technology enables anyone to assemble customized soundtracks that ignite, accompany and enhance every occasion. Whether for workouts, road trips, dance parties or any other event, iDJ keeps the music moving and completely in time for an exciting new playlist experience.
iDJ's music management system is both simple and streamlined letting users quickly build playlists using any song within your iTunes music library. iDJ's patented BPM (beats per minute) detection technology makes music meld together as one making it more than just a lightning-fast method of building mobile mixtapes. As songs are added, iDJ analyzes their sonic-waveforms, calculates tempos and then automatically performs optimal transitions throughout the playlist. In the DJ world, it's called "beat-matching"; the art of sequencing multiple songs in succession at the same speed as if one continual song. The end result is a playlist that flows from start to finish as a cohesive track, right on the iPad.
For over 30 years, Numark has been a leader in designing, manufacturing and distributing professional DJ equipment throughout the world. With iDJ, Numark has teamed up with the popular MixMeister software, which, for the past decade, has built a loyal following looking to make seamless music mixes quickly and easily. Together, Numark and MixMeister have delivered the first true music-mixing application for iPad for everyone to enjoy, from beginners to professionals. "We incorporated the knowledge of experienced DJs and developed the first iPad app that makes perfect song transitions without the hassle of learning DJ techniques," said Chris Roman, Product Development Manager, Numark. "Now anyone can make playlists that sound like a professional DJ is inside the iPad making it happen." Pricing and Availability:
