The sight of a club DJ rocking the dance floor with a MacBook or laptop alongside their turntables is by now a very familiar one to club goers, but could we soon be seeing DJs using iPads instead of laptops or MacBooks as a matter of course?
Dance music website inthemix has a very interesting story featuring American “electro experimentalist”, Rana Sobhany, who claims to be the world’s first iPad DJ. On her fascinating blog, Blog - Destroy The Silence - iPad App Music Creation by Rana Sobhany, Sobhany details her quest to find out if it’s possible to “rock the house for an hour using only two iPads and an iPhone using only apps downloaded from the App Store.”
DJs are usually at the cutting edge of technology, and the iPad looks incredibly flash in a club setting, one would imagine, enabling the more flamboyant of them to put on much more of a show, so I can see DJs adopting it very quickly, provided the right apps are available.
