Wouldn't you just know it...I finally shift my carcass into getting a re-visit done on this app and a new update drops in a couple of days later!
Well, it seems this update was worth the wait though. The key issue of cueing has been resolved, which means you can now choose which deck to listen to on the headphone channel, you could listen to both decks and you can also adjust the mix between Cue and Master via the Settings page. Users with an iPad2 will be pleased to hear that the sound mute which occured during use of the Key Lock function has been addressed also.
I've been able to load cd-ripped tracks and recorded mp3s without issue so far, so I'm not sure what the current negative reviews in the appstore are about.
The major piece of functionality - which we can't currently test, is the implementation of USB MIDI support, specifically with Numark's new product the iDJ Live - which I believe is a revamp of an older product. I think the iDJ Live product will be available in August, priced at £79 in the UK.
The detail is as follows;
- Added support for Numark iDJ Live controller for djay
- Added PFL buttons for individually assigning pre-cueing channel
- Added Cue/Mix slider to fade between master and pre-cueing output
- Added pre-cueing "Auto Select" option in Advanced settings
- Improved pre-cueing auto-select behavior
- Improved update of speed slider range when syncing tracks
- Improved Bounce Loop with Key Lock enabled (iPad 2)
- Improved cue point set accuracy in certain cases
- Added support for high efficiency AAC files
- Fixed occasional freezing of audio when switching from background
- Fixed occasional sound drop when activating Key Lock (iPad 2)
- Fixed drop outs when playing recordings on iPod touch 3rd gen
- Various other improvements and fixes
Amazingly, the app is *still* priced at $9.99;
