The joy of djay (or indeed djay2) on iOS is being able to spin virtual vinyl on a pair of pretend decks; so if you can’t make like Terminator X by scratching on a touchscreen, what’s the point? Thankfully, what djay Pro lacks in tactile fun, it makes up for by doing everything it can to help you seamlessly mix tunes together and make them sound great.

With Logic Pro X 10.1, Apple has made the program even more useful.
