Guitars are fun. X-Y MIDI controlers, like the Korg KAOSS Pad, are also fun. So in theory, combining the two, like this Manson MB-1 Guitar does, makes this thing twice as fun.

A DJ App for iPad That's Modular, For Exactly What You Want: d(- -)b from touchAble Creators - Create Digital Music

Making music with technology
Jaylon Ballard's insight:

touchAble is a Ableton Live DJ app for the iPad 2 (including iPad Mini). With the ever-changing world of turntablism coming out with different forms of music, its only logical that technology changes to adapt. Its more and more acceptable in today's society that music is being created not only on huge platforms, but on portable, lightweight platforms as well. The Apple iPad is one of the most revolutionary pieces of technology of its time, that being said, the touchAble app only makes it better. Nowadays, DJs around the world are getting more and more into EDM, House, and Dubstep, as well as the new and now popular Trapstep (my personal favorite) and Chillstep.

 

Pros:

The touchAble app is easy to access, easy to learn, and is jam-packed with different loops, sounds, EQs, you name it. It allows the same capability as a midi controller such as the APC40 or the Novation Launchpad would, but with more lineage, and many more options to choose from.

 

Cons:

Although its a breakthrough for the music world, keep in mind that its an App. A lot of times, when using apps (or technology for that matter) we face technical difficulties...or glitches. For a app of this quality, im sure it needs to run on a great amount of energy, that which I'm pretty sure will eat up the battery of a iPad. Although you can opt to keep it plugged in, what happens if you don't have a charger on you at the time? Just a few things to keep in mind.

 

Overall, the touchAble app is one of the greatest things I've seen, hands down. To DJs across the world, I hope you take this into account...I know I have. Hopefully, I'll be well on my way using this with a majority of my mixes.

Warren Scott's curator insight, February 16, 2:00 AM

The touchAble app is easy to access, easy to learn, and is jam-packed with different loops, sounds, EQs. It allows the same capability as a midi controller such as the APC40 or the Novation Launchpad, but with more lineage, and options to choose from. The only thing I can think of, that would make this a bad product would be the space provided on the iPad. Mainly because not only does music an other miscellaneous apps take up space, but all the plugins for this app that may require a lot of space. This source is very reliable to a lot of DJs that are always on the road and even for people you want to learn the skill set.
