Mix different tracks, create flowing transitions or make your own sounds by rotating the turntables and using different noises and instrument sounds. With DJ apps for iOS and Android, it’s all possible to do right from your smartphone or tablet. For example, you can play two songs in parallel, mix them and switch back and forth as you fancy. You can also play the music slower or faster, and put filters and effects over the tracks. As a rule, a DJ app can access different streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer or SoundCloud and also use playlists stored there.
3 DJ apps for Android and iOS
The range of DJ apps is growing and growing – whether free of charge or at a small cost. The following three DJ apps are available for both Android and iOS and are consistently at the top of the charts with fans.
The developers of Djay 2 have been familiar with DJ apps for a long time and deliver a very solid product with this app. It offers many options: in addition to basic effects such as loops, adjustment of the playback speed and beats per minute (BPM), the tool also offers various effects for changing musical pieces more creatively. Cutting and reassembling songs is also no problem. Additionally, you can use the scratch function to feel like a real DJ. Djay 2 can use music data from the memory of your smartphone or tablet as well as from Spotify – provided you are a subscribed member of the streaming service. You can also easily record your own sounds and play them back later.
