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 â€œelectro experimentalistâ€, Rana Sobhany, who claims to be the worldâ€™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 itâ€™s possible to â€œrock the house for an hour using only two iPads and an iPhone using only apps downloaded from the App Store.â€
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.
