App Description

Next generation harmonic mixing guidance and digital music navigation system

RekordKrate is primarily for users of Pioneer's CDJ-2000's or 900's & rekordbox software, the main objective being to use of the iPad's high resolution touch-screen display to make searching your tracks and playlists a much more fluid and enjoyable experience. It also provides a unique Harmonic Track Recommendation engine that shows you all key-matching tracks WITHOUT the need to use maser tempo/keylock. This method provides an entirely different set of results than other software with results spanning 9 different keys. RekordKrate doesn't need the music to be on your iPad (it requires only a datafile to operate), neither does It play tracks, or mix tracks, it simply provides you with a superior way to navigate your track collection and choose your next track, giving you the confidence to improvise during a live set whilst staying in perfect key. Used at a live gig, this can reduce your stress levels considerably, as you can turn to the app for inspiration, and it's more than possible to put together a whole set on the fly using RekordKrate and sound flawless. It can also be used at home to massively reduce set preparation time for busy djs with tons of digital tracks to go through. Harmonic Mixing is now at your fingertips, with no knowledge of musical theory required - you will wonder how you ever managed without it.

The concept of original progressive house pioneer, DJ Ian Ossia, the app was originally created to fill the hole left by the disappearance of the boxes of vinyl that were so lovingly carried around the world by djs prior to the digital revolution, as the dj can no longer turn to his beloved box of vinyl and flick through, waiting for something to pop out. RekordKrate becomes your new best friend at a gig, and helps you to mix like a true master.

“For USB DJs it is easy to see its value…..rekordKrate is a more elegant solution to “crate digging”…it certainly threw up some track suggestions which I wouldn’t have ordinarily considered”
