We rather bring you the top-performers in the iOS DJ segment as manufacturers try to find their footing with these relatively new DJ devices. One very powerful iOS DJ App that stands out from the rest in terms of performance, accuracy, and function is known as the DJ Player App.

As I'm working feverishly on the Rane Sixty-Two Serato SSL Mixer review this past week, I've noticed a few new emails from the Serato Team regarding a slew of new control vinyl in brand new colors. The first release includes the three different Neon colored control vinyl which are available in yellow, green, or pink which run only $39 a pair due to tiny label defects that don't affect performance. The latest release includes a new Glow-in-the-Dark vinyl with the new CV02.5, Performance Series Control Tone for the best tracking and tightest control for $49 a pair.
