Looptunesdj is top!
This App is not for Djs only. Musicians can use it too!
Hopefully because I am the worst dj available in all Galaxies! (The Sunday Contest video is one more example of this... But despite this you can see how the Apps works...)
So, LooptunesDJ comes with 2 identical "surfaces" on the left and right side.
On the top, the Decks. Tempo Auto Detected / Tempo x2 or /2 / Offset slider / 4 cues (you can move a cue to another cue slot) and 6 loops ( 1, 2,4,8,16 or 32 bars).
Below the Pads: 16 per surfaces. 4 channels for each surface (4 Pads per channel).
LooptunesDJ comes with a lot of loops but much more are available in the online store. You have 20 credits. 1 loop = 1 credit.
You can also import your own loops with Audiocopy or Audio Share. You can also record a loop to a Pad with Audiobus, the built in microphone of your iDevice or an external hardware. A great feature allows you to record your master out to a single Pad..
Great because of all the effects and parameters that offer this App.
Each Pad can be played from 5 different ways: bar, one shot, one shot raw, note on, note on raw. You can also drag a Pad to another slot, even the other surface. A keyboard allows you to play the sample same as with a Sampler.
For each surface, we have a Mixer. A volume for the deck and all Pads with a 3 band EQ for each.
Each Pad can be sent to a Filter, a Delay and a Reverb. The deck can be send to a Fx slot too.
2 big expression Pads, one for each surface allows you to play live with all the Fx available.
Also and this is really awesome, each Pad comes with its own "Channelstrip" named Macro here.
A small expression Pad for a filter (Bandpass, Highpass and Lowpass). 1 slider for the LFO amount and one for the speed. Also a distortion (a good one) a volume, a pan and a pitch.
Below the crossfader allows you to switch or mix the 2 surfaces together.
LooptunesDJ can be controlled by a sequencer, an external Pedalboard or else. (MIDI implementation with MIDI sync and learn).
It also comes with the Ableton Link feature.
Below, you will find the tutorial and 3 videos.
The first one, I made it today. A little tutorial. The second one was made for the Sunday Contest. A weird mix, but you can see the powerful of this App. The last one was made for the Let's open it together post.
To conclude, this App is very versatile. The processing quality for the effects is really great. The App is very easy to use even if you have to know some little tips to have a real big fun with it. (Check out the tutorial)
I love this App!
A Killer App! A Must Have!

A very big Kap to Sonicreef LLC
Loops Station with 2 Decks
Sound quality: Great ( I guess that we can import our own sample)
Audio Processing: Great too
Features: It looks to have all the things we need: Reverb, Delay, 3 or 2 Fx slots more with expression Pads, Play mode, Midi, Ableton Link...
UI: Very very easy to understand.

What's New- bug fixes
bismark Music2Bus is a IAA & Audiobus compatible music player.
Load a track from your Music Library, use the 5 bands EQ or not and play it.
Perhaps a little bit too much....
Impossible to create a playlist and a repeat feature would be great to have.
A very good App!

This is my "coup de cœur" of this month!
I love this App! I really really love it...
If you are an old Apps4idevices reader, you already know that I am the worst DJ of this Galaxy, and certainly of the others too.
If you are a new reader, you will know it, later, but not today, even if Stereosun was created for Djs...
Not today because Stereosun is so different. It's not a classical DJ App. Musicians can use it. Worse, it could even become the centerpiece of a composer who likes to work with loops ...
Stereosun comes with the Ableton Link feature, so it can play in sync with your DAW, Drum Machine, sequencer,...
On the center of the screen, the board. You can drop six Suns ( Audio files player) to this board. The Tempo of your Suns will be synced automatically. (Sync mode enabled. You can also change the Tempo of your loops with a swipe). Move a Sun to the top of the screen to set a higher level, to the bottom for a lower. On the both sides of the board, a Low and high pass filter. Drag a Sun on the left side (behind the vertical left line) to apply the low pass filter, on the right side, behind the vertical right line to apply the high filter.
Swipe from up to down on the top of the screen to reveal the Loop editor. For one Sun you can set 6 loops or Cue points. (Loop length: 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 bar). Swipe again to reveal the second editor page. Here, you can adjust the start and end point of your loop, change its pitch, pan, level and apply a 3 bands EQ.
From the board, if you swipe on the the left side from the Left to the right you will reveal the effects page.
8 effects: Reverb, Delay, Flanger, Whoosh, Gate, Roll, High Pass & Low Pass.
Drag them to the board and connect them to the desire Sun. You can connect all the Suns to the same effects if you like.
A Pad allows you to set 2 parameters for each of the effect.
In use, it's Top, because you can check easily and fast which loop can work with a track you are composing.
A Drum Loop, or instrument loop...
A DJ will be able to add loops, effects to his mix also and use the Auto play mode whichis so great too.
I will conclude this review as I started it:
Stereosun is my "coup de cœur" of November!
A Killer App, a Must Have!
Audio Unit and more in a future update?
More info soon...
Dub Siren is for Djs, Reggae Djs.
In the App you have a music player. A selection of Reggae & Dub radio stations. 12 Pads to play samples (no import but a big library. A lot of packs from very famous Artists.). A Siren: "the Synth", 3 presets, 3 waveform types and 3 play modes (Trig, Chop & Hold). A Delay, a Tap Tempo, a High & Low cut filter and 2 Spin switches (rewind & forward).
The App is very well done, easy to use for everyone. The selection of radio stations is really great and only for this reason, it's a Must Have for all the Reggae lovers.
A Killer App, a Must Have!

Do you know why I asked this developer to review All My Music?
Because there is not a lot of Music player that can display the BPM of a Track.
More than can search for a specific BPM or a range.
Unfortunately when I had my little trouble 3 years ago I lost all my Music, my Loops stored in the Cloud.
So, I have no more tracks with a BPM indication.
This App is very simple but great! The search filter allows you to search tracks with comments too, to set a target track depending of its BPM or pitch. A precious tool for those who works with a lot of Audio Loops.
A Super App! A Must Have for Composers, Arrangers and DJ too.
When I started my review of applications for djs, I used to say that you were going to have to deal with the worst dj of all the galaxy ... I believe that this video is the real proof of this...
DJ Dex has not been updated since this version, that to say end of 2013 ... at the time it was not a Super App, today it is better to zap it...
DJ DEX - The DJ Mixing App is a "Classic" Dj App. Its highlights are its simplicity of use, the Auto Detect BPM feature, MotionPlaying™: place your iPad on a turntable and scratch any song (requires an iOS device with a gyroscope) and a very nice UI. Its shortcomings: the effect section. No parameters to set, no small or big Pad, just 3 buttons to push. To conclude, DJ DEX is very well done but a little bit limited. A good App.
