musicradarmusicradar calls meta.DJ “addictive and powerful” "Anyone who has used sample decks in Traktor 2 will be in familiar territory here. In fact, Meta DJ has a few tricks that even the daddy of digital DJing doesn’t, such as up to eight loops in one sample player. Ambitious in concept, excellent in delivery, Meta.DJ is addictive and powerful. Future DJs will be in their element..."

DJ Tech Tools“the most compelling app for DJs yet on the iPad” "... this seems to be the most compelling app for DJs yet on the iPad. It’s sitting in a great position to start sniping off some of the computer-based DJ applications that aren’t being developed as earnestly. ... The app is fun and expressive..."

MacMixing“meta.DJ is outstanding” "Overall Meta.dj is outstanding and really gives a unique perspective to live mixing and iOS music production."
DJ and perform with tracks, instruments and effects.
Are you ½ producer and ½ DJ? Has your style outgrown the abilities of 2 virtual decks, digital wax and a mixer?
meta.DJ is targeted at modern DJ-style performances and lets you blend your iTunes music tracks with drum machine beats, sound fx, synthesized instrument parts, mix effects like delays, stutters, filters and more! Each iTunes track can get it's own reusable Cue and Loop presets, to let you work the track to the fullest. Access up to 4 musical devices at a time to max-out your mix with quad DJ decks or whatever you need to make the house rock.
Easily save a Snapshot of a device that includes its content (music tracks from iTunes, synth presets and key, loops, etc.) and mix parameters (FX, fader level, etc.) for easy recall into the work area of your Set. Just drag and drop a Snapshot into the work area and you are ready to use the device. Start a track playing, add a beatbox, and keep building it up. The mix is yours!
All from an easy-to-use touch interface on your iPad.
