    I've actually played a night in Italy using this, is ok once you get used to it.

    None really, sorry to have bothered you with it. Does it really matter?

    You specifically brought it up so I was wondering what the significance was. Or were you just trying to show off ?

    He's just pissed he can't take his decks to work like i can.... or play them on the bus etc.

    Showing off? No. I just happened to be there on a ski trip and was asked to play a bar. I wouldn't have used it in the UK as I'd probably have access to my decks. Why this is bothering you so much is beyond me.... :confused:

    You looked so cool on the bus too. Everyone was impressed, I bet.

    It's not bothering me at all. I find it rather amusing.

    I have both.

    The problem is with BPM recognition, djay does not detect bpm's correctly even on 4/4 tunes, so the pitch controls are useless. Last time I tried out djay you couldnt override the bpm or tell djay to pick it out of the id3 tags (all my tracks i use have the correct bpm's that i've set up in traktor in the ID3 tags).

    meta.dj bpm detection is better for 4/4 tracks, but cant detect more complex beats. However there is some weird glitch with cue-ing where when you start the track it starts a bar earlier than you want it too, but for layout, syncing and effects meta.dj is much better. You can also incorpate loops into the tracks from loops producer which I've got (now that is good fun, but its not for mixing youre own tracks really, unless you want to build the loops on a computer and transfer). I need to get my freind to look at the cue problem, he thinks he's got an idea what may be causing it on the tracks ive got.

    infact for all of the dj apps ive tried on the ipad, they're all pretty poor, but I always use meta.dj over djay. TBH the best way of using the ipad as a dj tool is to use the ipad as a wireless controller for a computer running traktor or similar software.

    So no, im not shooting out FACTS for a laugh.

    I will say i think the starting the tunes problem in meta.dj is user error, ive googled and googled to work out what im doing wrong and can find nothing about it being a software problem, so its probably due to the fact I have no musical skills whatsoever :D

    Oh i cant find a way to record either, but apparently its there :confused:

    It has a tap for BPM feature, so you can match any beat, even non electronic/clicktrack tracks, as you can just set a cue point, tap for BPM and then hit play from cue on the beat.

    It definitely hasn't, because that was the reason I bought meta.dj

    I found it now, but I think i remember installing an update, it wasnt there before than (this was a year if not more ago)

    I have read the manual, I signed up for their forum to ask, but they wont bloody approve me registration :facepalm:

    I am getting beatmatching slowly, I can tell which is faster and which is slower if i know the tunes, if I dont im flummoxed though.

    Pfft. Beatmatching is a skill for an obsolete technology. It's like being proud of knowing how to double de-clutch a non-synchronous gearbox. Very impressive, but we solved that problem you know? :D

    A bloke pressing a button on a screen isn't exactly a visual feast to watch though, is it?

    Sometimes the technical skill is part of the performance and part of what people pay to see: that's why drummers haven't been made obsolete by drum machines.

    If I ever find myself watching the DJ, I'll know I'm doing it wrong.

    Really? A lively DJ can make a huge difference to getting the dance floor moving. That's why clubs pay for them instead of just playing CDs/Spotify.

    Good job you don't run a club or a music pub then because you clearly don't know much about how these things work.
