Here’s the latest release from Native Instruments, the iPad Traktor DJ experience brought to the phone, via The Verge….
Earlier this year, Native Instruments released Traktor DJ for iPad, a powerful DJ system that also has a lower learning curve than most mixing options out there. Now, the company is attemping to bring that experience to the small screen with the dedicated Traktor DJ app for iPhone and iPod touch. It’s a $4.99 app, compared to the $19.99 NI is asking for the iPad version, but it doesn’t skip on features — in fact, the company says just about every feature from the iPad app is present in this new release.

I completely missed that the amazing Traktor DJ software has made the leap to the iPad, after a few days I have to say I am completely blown away by the feature set and flexibility.
Using the app on a multi touch surface means that you can have the precision and timing that is really hard to achieve when trying the same tasks on the mac, for me it replaces the need for my Kontrol S2 and makes everything so much more portable.
On thing I love is that the database of inpoints and loops you make when setting up tracks can be synced to dropbox, giving you complete peace of mind.
If you love music, and have an iPad, then is this is a must have app…
Unlike most other popular DJ apps for the iPad, Traktor DJ doesn’t have any virtual turntables or other real-world controls displayed on the screen — instead, you directly touch and manipulate the waveforms of your tracks themselves.
Traktor immediately slices beats into tappable areas as it loads tracks from your iTunes library, so you can jump around in a song simply by tapping on the waveform, and you can set loops anywhere just by tapping with two fingers on the screen.
