The only application of the App Store with which you can truly scratch on your iPad
Famed hacker Cyril Cattiaux, also known as pod2g on Twitter, has announced his first iOS application, PodDJ. The DJ application is said to transform your iPad into a real mixing engine with a brilliant touch to sound reactivity.For those wondering why there’s no iOS 6 jailbreak in sight, you might have your answer in the new PodDJ iPad app.
Pod2g apparently focused more on his app lately, and he is also known to be starting up his own security company. We wish him the best of luck with both ventures.
Regarding the mixing app, Cyril says the design and perfect fluidity of the display will enable “the most realistic virtual turntable you have ever seen.”
“Moreover, iTunes library music becomes available directly without any loading delay and with the highest fidelity sound processing,” says the hacker turned developer.
“Discs and controls have been thoughtfully placed in a way that your hands will cover every feature you need as quickly as possible without the requirement of any additional device to achieve a perfect mix,” he adds.
Cyril claims PodDJ is the only application in the iTunes App Store that can truly scratch, “thanks to a brilliant touch to sound reactivity.” He encourages music mixing aficionados to test the difference.
The sound output latency is 5 milliseconds and the OpenGL refresh rate is 60 Hz. Users will get zero latency cue points and zero latency Key Lock: “time shifting is applied at the source of the audio chain, not adding any latency to the output,” pod2g explains.
Pod2g believes “The simplicity of use will finally inspire the DJ sleeping inside you to wake up and turn your living room into the club it ought to be!”
The hacker tells us his app will be available when the clock strikes 00:00 (on January 12th). The current App Store link will then go live allowing any iPad owner with iOS 6 installed to download and run PodDJ.
