Want to know what it feels like to play a perfect DJ set to a full dancefloor, using just your iPad (or iPhone)? In this, the first book of its kind, Phil Morse of Digital DJ Tips—the world's biggest DJ training website—shows you step-by-step exactly how you can do just that, using Algoriddim's powerful djay 2 DJ app.

From helping you to choose, organise and prepare your music (including using djay 2's Spotify integration), to showing you how to beatmix like a pro, to giving you the low down on powerful techniques such as DJ effects, loops and keymixing, Phil shows you how to DJ properly with this software, in 172 feature-packed pages and across 21 pro HD videos.

The book serves as a standalone and complete guide to DJing as a hobby or profession, aimed at both complete beginners and those new to digital DJing. It covers all aspect of the craft, from standing out through your music choices, to how to get booked, even how to deal with pre-gig nerves - plus lots of ideas for furthering your DJing after you've successfully played your first public set. Once you know this stuff, you'll be able to transfer the skills to any DJ set-up you like.

Whether you want to be a club-style DJ, play mobile, or just spin at parties for your friends, and whatever your music style, everything you need to do to truly impress your audiences is here. Far beyond an instruction manual, How to DJ on your iPad (& iPhone) is more like an iPad/iPhone DJ's bible

    Like a lot of DJs, I heard about this book but wasn’t interested by it, thinking that nothing can replace the knobs of my mixer. However, few points in the introduction held my attention, such as "the back up system": for pros, the worst nightmare is the crash of the gear during a gig; there are solutions, but not as complete as a full set-up in an iPad/iPhone… I downloaded the book… and discovered the full potential of what DJing on Apple devices can bring: the possibilities are limitless; you can mix for fun anywhere you want, you can decide last minute to be the DJ at a birthday party on the spot, you can prepare a mixtape in the train, etc etc… No matter what, it’s working… and it’s fun! A detail: In the book, Phil Morse advices what works well, but also explains why other choices are less good. Expect real tips, which is what I like with "Digital Dj Tips" articles in general. Finally, last but not least, with 172 pages & videos, the book is not only teaching how to set an iPad or an iPhone for mixing, but is actually teaching how to be a DJ (answering to almost every possible questions a DJ of any level can have!!) It’s a must have (a bible?) if you are a DJ or if you just want to have more fun with music… Cheers from Switerland!
