The Best Apps for DJs
Looking for online DJ music mixer apps that aren’t going to break the bank? DJ equipment can be expensive, but many DJ apps are free, or at least affordable on a budget. Here are 10 of the most interesting.
Cross DJ is free with in-app purchases, including sample packs, auto-mixer and external mixer support. Claiming to be one of the first DJ apps on mobile, it offers accurate BPM, track syncing and beat-grid editing, as well as pitch bending at five levels.
Music Maker JAM
This may be one of the most popular DJ apps out there, allowing users to create their own music, record vocals and add effects in real time. Much of the package is free, and it’s ideal for other musicians too. The full suite could set you back up to $50.
Another popular app for iOS then Android, djay 2 has Spotify integration and many other basic features: pitch-bending, auto-mixing, effects, looping and cue points, etc. Despite being many DJs’ top choice of app, it’s effectively free to use.
DJ Studio 5
Comprehensive and powerful, DJ Studio 5 is also free — and completely without limitations or watermarks in return. Add-ons can be purchased, of course, but the basic package is pretty decent as it is. There’s also support for SoundCloud and (some) hardware controllers.
Another little powerhouse, edjing Mix comes with Deezer support, SoundCloud access and plenty of excellent features. These include continuous syncing of two tracks, looping, turn-tables, crossfader and layout customization.
FL Studio Mobile HD
Available for iOS and Android, FL Studio Mobile HD is a slimmed down version of FL Studio for desktop. It has the same kind of look, so the transition should be easy for users of the original. And it also includes many of the same features.
Korg iELECTRIBE comes with 192 beats from Electribe R, the original incarnation of the software, as well as 32 templates for different genres. Or you can start from scratch. At around $20, it’s not one of the cheapest apps of its kind, though.
Animoog is well-credentialed, with some genuine professional clout. In fact, it was designed by the analog manufacturer as a professional DJ app. It may not be suitable for beginners and casual users.
Is Traktor DJ free? It might as well be at it’s low price for iPhone. But it’s even better on iPad. Users can use the touchscreen to manipulate their music with ease. On a smaller screen, this specialist app can feel a little daunting.
Beatwave allows users to layer up to four sounds at a time, controlling effects and mixing with a drop-down menu on each track. You can make full songs of your own using Beatwave and transfer them to another app using Audiobus.
