Beatsurfing: Takes DJ gear to a whole new level

While there remains a romantic notion when it comes to the “old-school” methods of DJ-ing – from the vinyl-digging to lugging around your turntables in “coffin” – there’s no denying that technology has made its way into the music scene, making it easier and more accessible for people to get into the art. And one new DJ app that takes DJ-ing to new heights is Beatsurfing: The Music Production Interface. Using only your tablet, you get a screen full of shapes and level-controls which somehow create/emit different sounds, beats, pitches, volumes when touched, tapped, or swiped. Once you’ve gotten the hang of it, you can pretty much make your own beat anywhere your touchscreen device is willing to go.
