Cross DJ 1.4 Update for iPad: MIDI Control

Mixvibes’ Cross DJ software for iPad today joins the very limited ranks of iOS DJ software that allow for MIDI control, with a brand new update, version 1.4. While Mixvibes is shipping the software with a number of mappings for controllers that haven’t be previously mapped for iPad on any software, they’re keeping the mapping process itself locked down to just the mappings they choose. This means no mapping custom controllers or non-supported units.

That being said, Mixvibes seems to have targeted the beginner controller market in this update, providing mappings for all of the following:

  • Mixvibes U Mix Control Pro
  • Mixvibes U Mix Control Pro 2
  • Pioneer DDJ­WeGo
  • Numark Mixtrack Pro
  • Numark Mixtrack Pro 2
  • Hercules DJ Console RMX 2
  • Hercules DJ Control Instint
  • Hercules DJ Control AIR
  • Vestax Spin2
  • Numark iDJ Live

Cross DJ is available in the app store for $9.99 currently $3.99, but MIDI control is a $10 in-app purchase to unlock it.

    touchOSC – Sorry but it takes hardly any time to install a tsi file mapped to run as a Traktor Pro 2.5+ controller – and to boot, you get a midi-fighter thrown in…

    Dj player is still the champ when it comes to ipad dj apps that have midi mapping. Enough of this locking down the midi mapping stuff.

    If dj player would add better LED feedback it would be perfect!

    I tested it with my Numark Mixtrack Pro, app is great works well on iPad, however there are times that the sound output from Mixtrack Pro are cut out. Anyone experience this? Im using Camera Connection kit and a powered USB Hub.

    Works very well as a standalone app.
    I was however very curious about seeing it working with my Numark Mixtrack Pro 2 I recently bought, so I got the MIDI in-app and I have to say that it is very good. Not perfect tho, but it is normal since the capabilities of an iPad with non-native controlles are limited. Conclusion : extremely good value and extremely enjoyable to mix with an iPad !!!!!!

      “since the capabilities of an iPad with non-native controlles are limited”
