Red Bull
BPM HD can be used by professional DJs. It fulfills all requirements of modern-day DJing by offering the 21st century digital equivalent of a traditional DJ set-up with two decks and a mixer. The app is custom-made for the iPad screen, focused on performance, low latency and core functionality rather than silly graphics effects. It is a high quality tool for the performing DJ with high-precision track control and real time response providing a new experience for DJing, so you can perform a set while leaving your laptop at home. All this and it’s easy to install. Plug it in, switch to line and you're good to go...
