    Default iPad OS future solution?

    Dear ones, as the new iPad OS launched recently i was hoping that with this post we encourage the developers at Native Instruments and Pioneer to help us make our iPad the portable music carrier insted of an laptop. As the new MacBooks are really garbage and they crash a lot. IPad if connected to the CDJ2000 or even CDJ400 or with Z1 and X1 and the same time could be a real game changer. I think that there are developers here maybe who already solved that?

    You need to check out DJPlayerPro. I've done a few gigs using my iPad controlled via DVS on my iPad mini 2 (2013)

    Huh ? It supports plenty of Pioneer midi controllers. NI controllers however don't work with anything else on iPad except Traktor as they don't use midi.

    For iPad DVS, the Akai AMX is probably one of the best solutions out there.

    IMHO Algoriddim Djay for Controllers, DJPlayer is your only option if you need DVS (I'm not a fan of the interface though.)

    Djay + Controller does at least 99% of what a most DJ's will ever do with desktop software, and in some cases more and better (e.g. video mixing).

    iPad's have had the processing needed for DJ apps for the past 6+ years, now that iOS supports folders and shared drives storage is really no longer the problem. It's a shame that more manufacturers aren't looking at the iPad as a viable professional DJ solution and developing controllers designed with iOS in mind.

    As the new MacBooks are really garbage and they crash a lot
    YOUR MacBook or MacBooks in general ? ... I certainly haven't heard reports of them crashing alot and I'd hardly call them garbage.

    What about Rekordbox on iPad?

    If you're using NI stuff try using Traktor DJ with your Traktor gear. If you're using Pioneer gear try using Pioneer WeDJ and possibly Algoriddim's DJay.
