As Soulwax once sang back in 1998, everybody wants to be the DJ.
Everyone thinks their music taste is better than everyone else's, and
few things will win you a "daggers" stare quicker than cutting someone's
favourite track short at a house party.
The rather fab side
effect of this wannabe culture is Djay, a virtual decks app for iPad. It
provides you with two vinyl-style virtual wheels of steel, and a
surprisingly comprehensive set of realistic tools to jump from one track
to another. These include pitch shifting, beat matching, EQ and - of
course - gain controls and a crossfader. If you're out for fun rather
than a "pro" effect, you can indulge in scratching too, with intuitive
swipes across the record surface.
