Waves Audio, the industry-leading developer of professional audio digital signal processing technologies and the recipient of a Technical GRAMMY Award, joins forces with Musicsoft Arts to introduce Mashup, the first DJ app to bring Waves studio-quality processing to the iPad.

We will be doing our review on Mashup in the coming days! This app looks like a game changer in the DJ world! Stay tuned! The information below is directly from the press release!

Featuring an advanced playback engine and effects controlled by an intuitive interface, Mashup lets users play and mix directly from their iPad music library – plus download exclusive tracks from leading DJs like Junior Sanchez and Kris Menace. With full support for iPad 2 and up, Mashup is a complete mobile DJ booth, replacing complex, expensive and cumbersome DJ gear like turntables, CDJs, mixers and PCs. Mashup features studio-quality EQ and analog-style resonant filters, Vinyl Touch glitch-free scratching, and independent time-stretch and pitch-shift for each of its two stereo decks, effectively saving users thousands of dollars in gear.

Users can also take Mashup’s performance to the next level using Waves MaxxAudio enhancement, available at an additional charge. MaxxAudio for Mashup includes MaxxVolume all-in-one dynamics control, which dramatically increases the output levels of headphones and external speakers; MaxxBass psycho-acoustic bass enhancement, which delivers deep, rich lows listeners can really feel; and preset sound modes for earbuds, headphones, docking stations, home stereos and club systems.

Features include:

  • Dual stereo decks with studio-quality EQ and effects
  • Tempo change sliders with independent time-stretch and pitch-shift for each deck
  • Analog-style resonant high pass/low pass filters with exclusive touch ribbon control
  • Free downloadable music from top DJs
  • Vinyl Touch glitch-free scratching
  • Record stereo mixers, then drag and drop into a computer
  • Play back any track in a user’s library
  • Headphone monitoring to cue up tracks via additional iPhone® ,iPod Touch, or iPad® over WiFi or Bluetooth

Aviv Eyal, CEO, Musicsoft Arts, stated:

“In our efforts to offer DJs worldwide the highest quality audio in our applications, we decided to collaborate with Waves on Mashup. Their leading DSP technology was a perfect fit for this app, and it really helped enhance the audio quality, something that DJs will surely appreciate.”

“Waves partnered with Musicsoft Arts on the Mashup app to bring DJs the maximum audio quality available,” stated Gilad Keren, CEO and co-founder of Waves Audio.  “Mashup is not only easy to use, it has a wide array of features, and DJs will be able to hear the difference in audio quality right away.”

      I couldn’t agree with you more! Thi app seems to have a lot of potential. I’m really curious to see how well the remote headphones through iPhone / iPod is.

    Before I explain why I rated this app so low, please understand that i have been an International Dj for over 20 years, along a Music Producer for 18 years and worked with numerous famous artist from the industry in my life. I am more than savvy with technology and tried many apps for testing purposes and do a lot of reviews for brands like Pioneer and Native Instruments.

    So you’ll understand i got very excited when I saw that Waves, which reputation for excellency in plugins business has gone worldwide many years ago, was involved in a Dj software project. Specially as we are talking about an app working on an iPad or iPhone without a decent audio interface, knowing that the audio signal going out is processed by the MAXXX Technology would be   a very important factor in your decision of buying Mashup.

    Well unfortunately, even though the developper is insisting on this fact that the Waves processor alone should make a difference with the other apps available on the market, this app then totally lacks in doing what it is supposed to do : be a Dj software and not just another fancy MP3 player.

    The fact is that honestly, the interface looks really good, specially if you have a retina display, and the access to the different layers is rather smart and easy. But as fast as the rush raised when i launched the app, then even faster did my enthousiasm crashed and faded away when i tried to just mix a couple of songs from my library. A total fiasco if you’d ask me ! I quickly started to be upset, got aggrevated as all my attempts to try basic things you are supposed to do with this kind of software ended in a succession of failures and desapointments.

    As a summary of this terrible and expensive experience ( $35.00 for the app + $5.00 for the Waves Maxxx ) the sync engine is one of the worst i ever tried or beta tested in the last 2 years. I COULD NOT EVEN SYNC THE EXACT SAME TRACK LOADED IN BOTH DECKS !!!  After a couple of seconds the sync is lost and you have no way to nudge nor bend manually so the mix stay put … only solution then is to stop the player, seriously ??? can you afford this when you are actually in front of 500 people or more ???  

    This app is not for you if you are a professional Dj as all your expectations will be turned down by this pathetic attempt of a Dj Software. Don’t get fooled by the whole Waves gimmick as they only provided an audio process for the audio output, period.

    Stay away and look for much more cheaper apps that will do a much better job overall.

    Peace out !!!
