It seems as though every other month either Android or Apple is releasing another DJ related app. Don’t get me wrong, I love the fact that these phone manufacturers are starting to see the purchasing power of DJs around the world. But I also think that they quick release of these DJ controller apps, mixing apps and effects means they aren’t really putting out a quality product.
Whether free or cheap, you shouldn’t just download every app willy-nilly just because they tell you it’s for DJs “just like you”. I mean off course it doesn’t hurt to simply check it out to see what all the hype is about, but do you really think the newest app is going to rock your world as a DJ?
The jury is still out, but DJ Studio 5 was just released earlier this month, so let’s see if it’s worth the download.
One of the things that’s so irresistible about apps like DJ Studio 5 is that they are totally free which means it costs nothing but time to download them and give them a whirl.
The important thing to remember is that free apps very rarely contain all the bells and whistles a working DJs needs to make the best set possible. So while DJ Studio may be great for the party DJs keeping the music going for house parties, it won’t be enough for those looking to impress.
So it’s true that there are definitely more android friendly apps like DJ Studio 5, but many of the early DJ apps were exclusively for the iPhone or iPad. DJ Studio 5 works for the android operating system so those of you thinking of making the switch to Apple, there’s no need!
With so many features in the palm of your hand, Android users can sit back and grin knowing they can now get the party started right!
User Friendly Interface
Not only is DJ Studio 5 making Android users the world over vibrate with glee, but it is so easy to use that even wannabe, trying to be and amateur DJs will have no problem using this application. Even though there are tons of features from which users can choose, it is well managed so newbies don’t feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of choices.
In fact the digital display will help new DJs or non-DJs learn their way around an actual DJ kit. If you don’t know what words like scratch, pitch or loop mean, you will learn soon enough with this easy to use beginner friendly app.
You Can Share!
In this age where everyone feels the need to (over) share every single second of their lives without regard for how interesting it is, DJ Studio lets you share something you actually want to share with the world: your music.
This application lets you share your mixes on SoundCloud so you can see if you really have what it takes to be a DJ or just to keep a party crowd happy and not too rowdy.
If you’re thinking there is no way on earth you’ll be sharing your amateur mixes with the world, consider that some of the other features include a built-in recorder so you can record your mixes live. When you finally get a mix worth sharing with the world, hit up SoundCloud and show off!
Sounds & Skins
One area in which smartphones seem to shine is customization. You can get themes galore in various app stores and now with DJ apps you can even customize what you see when you’re entertaining a crowd. DJ Studio 5 comes with 8 popular sound effects including reverb, phaser, bit crusher and flanger so you can slowly start to learn what they sound like and how to use them for maximum effect.
Then there are the skins for the decks, 7 in total. If you have some extra cash to burn, this is where you can do it. Help the developers make a profit by customizing your deck skin or stick with the original.
If you love customizing DJ Studio 5 also comes with 10 sample pads that you can customize if the mood strikes you.
Tons of Features
The one thing we all look for in a good app is choices. DJ Studio gives the user plenty of features that you can decide to use or let them sit there going to waste.
Look for the following features in your favorite Android DJ app:
2 decks & 1 screen
Pre-cue with Y-cable or headphones
3 band equalizer
Beats based loops
MP3 and WAV files
DJ Studio 5 is not meant to replace your DJ skit but rather this is a fun and unique way to learn how to become an amateur DJ or start an impromptu party.
