About Cue Play Dj
Cue Play DJ is the most advanced digital DJing solution ever created for the iPhone OS platform. It has the needs of existing DJs in mind, offering a familiar interface and feature-set comparable to existing desktop digital DJ solutions costing hundreds of dollars, while sporting a $9.99 price point that lowers the barrier of entry to anyone seeking to become a real DJ. Cue Play DJ also ships with Cue Play Setlist, a desktop (Mac OS X/Windows) companion tool that allows users to load their own tracks into the mobile application. Cue Play Setlist becomes a conduit that allows Cue Play DJ to stream its stereo master output channel to the desktop, allowing DJs to cue and play on their phones while the final mixed performance is sent through speakers attached to the desktop. Cue Play Setlist also allows DJs to record their sets for future playback as an uninterrupted mix.
