If there’s one common thread among all DJ apps, it’s that they frequently try to emulate the classic turntable mechanic of track mixing. In an era of digital audio, this seems a wee bit outdated. So, in the tradition of so many informercials, I exclaim: “There’s got to be a better way!” Touch DJ Evolution is then the product that tries to improve on this first world problem. The app features a different method of track mixing, allowing users to mix two tracks through an entirely visual interface. The app features a one-touch track synchronization feature, and the ability to easily adjust the tempo of tracks with “Master Tempo technology.” The idea is to make mixing easier and more accessible than with traditional DJ software. The app is free to download, with a variety of in-app purchases for additional features, like importing music from the iPod library. The app can be wholly unlocked for all present and future features for $9.99.

Before it’s release, one of the areas mentioned that the iPad had huge potential was in the arts. The question was how would artists take to it or would they? The iPad has now been out for less than a month and we’re already seeing a great uptake from a wide variety of artists. Here are a few short videos that show more.

The First iPad DJ

Rana Sobhany gave an early preview of her DJ project, Destroy The Silence this past weekend at iPadDevCamp. The plan is to become a DJ using nothing but 2 iPads, music apps, and a mixer. Here’s a short interview and demo done with Rana by Robert Scoble earlier this week.

Some of the apps she uses in the video include Korg iElectribe, Looptastic HD, GrooveMaker, and iDaft2.

Manga Artist Sketches on the iPad

Flight of the Bumblebees — one handed?

Pianist Lang Lang played a little joke during an encore recently, using his iPad and the music app Magic Piano from Smule. One of the features of Magic Piano is that it allows you to play the piano just by playing the tempo, it will play the correct notes for you. In this video, Lang Lang plays the very difficult Flight of the Bumblebees very nonchalantly with just one hand.

iPad App Preview: Mixr

One of the more interesting usage possibilities for the iPad that we haven’t seen much about so far has to do with music performance and creation. We’ve seen some amazing apps on the iPhone in this genre, so it follows that we will even more interesting apps in the genre for the iPad.

Mixr is one of those apps, a DJing app that simulates 2 turntables. Mixr includes some great features like that ability to change the speed of playback by touch, ability to record the mixes, playback effects, and a great album view. Mixr looks like great DJ app and just the tip of the iceberg for this app genre.
