Waves Audio/Musicsoft Arts Mashup
Waves Audio has teamed up with Musicsoft Arts to develop Mashup, an iPad app that claims to be ‘a complete mobile DJ booth’.
Providing playback and effects, Mashup uses the iPad’s music library and adds EQ and analogue-style resonant filters, Vinyl Touch glitch-free scratching, and independent time-stretch and pitch-shift for each of its two stereo decks.
DJs can also use Waves MaxxAudio, which includes MaxxVolume dynamics control to dramatically increase the output levels of headphones and external speakers; MaxxBass psycho-acoustic bass enhancement for ‘deep, rich lows’; and preset sound modes for earbuds, headphones, docking stations, home entertainment and club systems.
