IK Multimedia releases DJ Rig FREE for iPhone / iPod touch and updates DJ Rig to v1.0.2
IK Multimedia has announced that DJ Rig FREE for iPhone/iPod touch is now available on the iTunes App Store. Together with the newly-updated regular version of DJ Rig, the two apps provide instant song-playing from your iOS device music library, automatic tempo sync and beat match, sample-based pads and performance recording, plus an arsenal of high-quality DJ effects.
IK says that DJ Rig FREE is the perfect companion for the soon to be released iRig MIX portable DJ mixer for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and together they provide a portable setup for mobile DJs and musicians using iOS devices.
All the controls needed for mixing are included in DJ Rig FREE such as tempo controls for fine tuning BPM adjustments, multiple crossfader curves, a waveform display that can be dragged and zoomed, and an accurate scratch engine modeled on real deck behavior with IK's proprietary CloneDeck technology for scratching with cut-to-the-beat and a live recorder to capture the full mix performance and export it easily.
DJ Rig features:
- Landscape and portrait interfaces.
- Instant songs and playlists playing from the device music library, with BPM detection, beat analysis and beat map saving.
- Supports all major digital audio formats including MP3, AAC, WAV, AIFF.
- Deck controls: Volume, Pitch, 3-Band Kill EQ, Headphones and Crossfader.
- Tempo Sync and Beat match.
- Effects with XY touch interface - all beat-synced.
- Sampler-machine with sample pads.
- Multiple output configurations for virtually any audio setup.
- X-Sync mode detects the tempo from external audio sources in real-time and automatically syncs the app audio to external devices (when used with iRig MIX).
