Spotted over on the Digital DJ Tips’ YouTube this afternoon – a comparison of keylock engines some of the more prominent iOS DJ applications. It’s pretty shocking to hear the disparity between each of the different apps, and how some of them have vastly more quality audio than others. The video’s description explains the test:
I used “Touch Me” by Rui da Silva as the test track, as it features kicks, snares, vocals and synths in the section I used.
I played the same section of the track on all the apps in the test, at -16% with Key Lock enabled on a 3rd Generation iPad running the latest version of iOS (6.1.3) and the latest version of all apps involved (as of 25.03.2013).
The applications tested are (in order of appearance):
- Native Instruments’ Traktor DJ (review)
- DJ Player (review)
- MixVibes’ CrossDJ (review)
- Algoriddim’s djay
- Touch The Wave
If anything, this test really brings MixVibes’ claim last week that they’ve got the best keylocking audio engine on the market into perspective – especially when compared to Traktor DJ’s results!
