Splyce Mixes And Orders Your Songs By BPM, Acts Like A Cool Automated DJ Who's Always With You

When I was looking at local music players on Android for my roundup, I tried to find an app that would analyze your songs' BPM and let you create playlists accordingly, but couldn't land on one that did the job well. Both DjRun and RockMyRun use BPM to build their playlists, but they are geared toward running and active lifestyles. What if you just wanted slow mellow songs to chill to? Or fast uptempo music to ease your homework struggle? There didn't seem to be an alternative that fit the bill quite well, until Splyce came along today.

Although it has been available on iOS for a (long) while, Splyce has just made the jump to Android.

Edjing Pro Provides Android-Using Professional DJs With A Feature-Rich Music Mixer, Launches Priced At 50% Off

I'm no professional DJ, but I know a guy. I could pretend that makes me in some way qualified to evaluate a piece of software intended for people like him, but I usually tune out whenever he starts talking specifics about work. Hey, it doesn't matter how cool your job is. Work is work.

Getting to the point, DJiT has released a music mixer intended for professional DJs. The app, edjing Pro, was apparently designed by DJs themselves to place a direct emphasis on mixing.

Most of the music services available today have some kind of radio feature, automatically generating playlists based on artists, genres, and other musical variables.

[New App] Cross DJ Makes Your Android Phone Or Tablet A Miniature DJ Controller With 'Portal' Fashion Sense

Conventional wisdom says that mobile devices are for content consumption, but content creation is the realm of laptops and desktops. Sure, you see "created using nothing but an iPad" every once in a while, but if you're looking at something professional, odds are good that its creator used a reliable mouse and keyboard at some point. Then along comes an app like Cross DJ, challenging our notions of what can be done on a touchscreen and ARM hardware.

As you might have guessed from the title, Cross DJ is a DJ app. But this isn't just a way to create and edit your ever-growing collection of Zelda MIDI files - the app emulates and replicates the function of a real DJ controller, complete with live output and recording.
