DJ apps seem to do pretty good in the App Store, but from today on, they’ll just keep getting better. One of the biggest complaints of DJ apps devs was the lack of direct access to the music library to edit songs already synced with iTunes. You had to upload another song to an app-specific library, fire up the app and find that song you uploaded.
Now, it looks like you can just pick up a song from iPod.app and start scratching.
“You can scratch any song in your iTunes library, meaning this app developer has figured out a way to access audio buffers as they’re played. Apparently, the API isn’t entirely perfect, but it sounds like a step in the right direction, based on the impressions we hear from this developer. The developers of Flare Scratch also make a more full-featured DJ tool called Baby Decks DJ for the iPad, which could mean that, with iPad support, the tablet could become an all-in-one DJ solution. (Of course, a MacBook still has one significant edge – far, far greater storage capabilities.)”
Now we just have to wait.
