From crowdsourced DJ sets to musical sketching, we take a look at some of the apps and updates of the month this past March 2016.
Most applications come in iOS versions, unless otherwise specified. Did we miss any? Let us know what your favourite apps from the past month were.
Bloc’s Wave | iOS
Blocs Wave is a music creation app designed to inspire new musical ideas. Easily combine original professional sounds across a wide array of genres. Tweak your sounds using beautiful touchable waveforms, and make your ideas even more unique. Record your vocals and instruments, and bring your ideas to life within minutes.
Composer’s Sketchpad | iOS
Perfect for those producers who have not received classical music training. With this app, users can select from dozens of instruments, and control tempo, volume, vibrato, and octave, as well as save, and export as MIDI or JSON files, and the best part is its interactive artwork approach to writing music.
This new app hands the power back to the people by letting the crowd DJ, allowing you to choose songs in your favourite venues all from your phone. Use crowdDJ to search through the music that will build the vibe wherever you are right now, choose your favourites and own your party.
DJDJ | iOS
A complete no-nonsense DJ mixing App in your iPad: beat match tracks, use EQ, use EFX, save and trigger cues and cued loops, all in one screen
Entr | Beta
Hack the most dreaded clubbing queus in the world with the first crowdsourced guestlist access app. Still in beta phase, Entr matches club goers with a “Hero” who can grant access to desired events. Users can browse listings in advance to find the one that best fits your needs. Filter results according to budget, schedule or even Heroes’ past success rates…and Heroes’ can also get paid each time they’re able to get someone in your agreed upon club or event.
Radiate | iOS
Radiate is an app that acts as a platform to bring music festival attendees together so that they can communicate and connect with ease. Want your friends to know that you will be leaving Richie Hawtin to check out Steve Angello at the Ultra main stage? Radiate will help you communicate with them so you can meet up and witness the Size Records boss. Radiate uses its own network, routers and servers, so there’s no need to worry about having no internet connection. Some additional perks include push notifications for weather warnings, hydration reminders and other crucial festival information.
