Remixlive is The Next-Gen Tool for DJs
After releasing their DJ software called Cross DJ 3.0, which can be used to record sound and music across multiple platforms, the company has now released an app that can be used to remix those sounds live. The app is called Remixlive, and it can be downloaded from the iOS App Store. Continue reading to learn more about this interesting app.
Remixlive is an iOS app for instant remixing, with support for synced loops, sounds, and effects. As it can be seen from the screenshots, the app presents a grid of sounds and effects using pads, which can be easily combined with each other.
Loops, sounds, and effects can be found in the main view, where a user has different options when it comes to their activation. Different elements can be played with a tap on the screen, while there is also the swiping gesture for activating a number of similar effects.
However, there is one important difference when it comes to this app’s iPhone and iPad versions. While DJs can find 48 pads on iPads, there are only 24 pads on iPhones.
Nonetheless, it seems like there are unlimited ways to combine different samples. The application packs 16 sample packs (totaling at 48 samples), including beats, basslines, vocals, and more. By editing these samples and by adding their own, DJs can record music live.
Differently from similar apps, this one comes with a multiple play mode, which allows different samples to be played at the same time.
Since each column of pads comes with a level fader and filter knob, DJs have more creativity with their music. By switching to another view, an XY grid can be accessed with tools used to delay, filter, flanger, and reverb.
As it can be seen from the images, there is also an option to use a microphone connected to an iOS device. This way, DJs can record any sound and mix it into their creations. Each newly added sample can be transposed as well, thanks to Remixlive’s high-quality limiter.
What is also important to be highlighted is that this app can record sets in a high quality AAC format. The app comes with its own music player, where DJs can preview their music and make further adjustments. Once finished, the music can be sent via email in case of smaller sets, or iTunes can be used to export larger files.
Mixvibes has done a great job, once again. I am sure we will get to see DJs incorporating their iOS devices into their workflows soon enough.
Remixlive is the first application of its kind that really pushes DJs towards their iOS devices. In addition, your iPad or iPhone can now be used in combination with a desktop app, which is what makes this app more capable than any standalone solution.
Remixlive can be downloaded free of charge from the iOS App Store, and it comes as a universal download. There are several in-app purchase packs at the moment, which fully unlock the app once purchased. Some of these are: import samples, unlimited record, and transpose feature. Still, the app comes fully functional in its trial (free) version, and it can be used to preview its capabilities prior to making any investments.
