Waves and Musicsoft Arts introduce Mashup, a complete mobile DJ booth app 20/01/12
Waves Audio has joined forces with Musicsoft Arts to introduce Mashup, a new iPad app. Featuring an advanced playback engine and effects controlled by an intuitive interface, Mashup lets users play and mix directly from their iPad music library – plus download exclusive tracks from leading DJs like Junior Sanchez and Kris Menace. Waves tell us that Mashup is a complete mobile DJ booth, with studio-quality EQ and analog-style resonant filters, Vinyl Touch glitch-free scratching, and independent time-stretch and pitch-shift for each of its two stereo decks, saving users thousands of dollars in gear.
Waves says that users can also take Mashup's performance to the next level using Waves MaxxAudio enhancement, available at an additional charge. MaxxAudio for Mashup includes MaxxVolume all-in-one dynamics control, which dramatically increases the output levels of headphones and external speakers; MaxxBass psycho-acoustic bass enhancement, which delivers deep, rich lows listeners can really feel; and preset sound modes for earbuds, headphones, docking stations, home stereos and club systems. Features include:
Dual stereo decks with studio-quality EQ and effects
Independent time-stretch and pitch-shift for each deck
Analog-style resonant high pass/low pass filters with exclusive touch ribbon control
Free downloadable music from top DJs and producers
Vinyl Touch glitch-free scratching
Record stereo mixers, then drag and drop into a computer
Play back any track in a user's library
Users' iPhone or iPads can cue the next track over a WiFi or Bluetooth connection
