edjing Mix: DJ music mixer Review
edjing Mix is a pro DJ app with two independent decks, built-in mixer, scratch features, sampler, cloud storage support, and other features. You can download edjing Mix for Android or iOS and try it, and then decide whether it delivers the vibes.
It’s a full-fledged deejaying app, with two decks and the internal mixer. It lets you play two tracks simultaneously, mix their volume, apply effects, adjust the sound with equalizer, regulate the tempo with pitch control section, and sync tracks automatically with beat recognition engine. The app is capable of mixing tracks automatically with their BPM in about the same range, and it phenomenally works with external Bluetooth devices, including headphones and controllers.
If you have got used to hardware DJ players and controllers, with all the buttons, faders and controls within your reach physically, you will feel a little discomfort first. Loops and effects, tracks and cues, even the visual wave and the pitch control are hidden behind the buttons! Still, it’s the matter of practice: using it for a week will make edjing Mix familiar. Of course, the app is better suited for tablets, though hardly they provide the feel of physical jogs and buttons.
The app features two independent decks, each of them has its own file browser, EQ, effects section, pitch control, and wave visualization. The latter is more necessary than in hardware players or desktop software: visual syncing can be inevitable when audio goes wrong. The waves are positioned next to each other (similar to Virtual DJ), making it easier to check the syncing visually.
One of the greatest issues about mobile DJ software has always been only having one hardware output. In edjing Mix, you use the internal mixer along with Bluetooth headphones. The fresher Bluetooth version your tablet and your headphones have onboard, the less will be the delay. If you prefer to feel the music with your hands, you can also connect controllers like Mixfader.
To overcome memory limitations, you can upload your library to a cloud drive (iCloud, Google Drive, OneDrive) and play the tracks from there. There are also social features, like sharing your freshly recorded mixes on Facebook and Twitter. Finally, you can connect online radios like Deezer and access their libraries as well.
Cross-Platform Use 5/5
Edjing Mix is available for both iOS and Android devices. It must be the most usable on large tablets, like iPad Pro or Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, though with a bit of art the app is usable on phones as well. It is also compatible with various Bluetooth peripherals, as now this technology reduced its delay down to acceptable values.
The basic version of edjing Mix is free to use. But it lacks professional features like pre-cueing with headphones, integration with SoundCloud and Deezer, and customizable design of the turntables. Premium also brings frequent new sample packs and new effects. It’s $7.99/week (nothing next to a good DJ’s earnings), with one week of the free trial.
The Bottom Line
Edjing Mix is a powerful app, but its power unfolds when it’s used along with cloud services or with premium subscription. It lets the DJ go pro with just a tablet or even a phone, using wireless pro equipment. Its premium subscription is quite cheap for a pro (if this pro doesn’t opt for hardware controllers or players). Mobile deejaying is more of a thing with these apps, and a little practice can work magic with its features.Collapse
It’s a great app for professional DJs who want to master tablets as pro devices. Others can download edjing Mix too and try their skills with its free version.
