And it’s about to get even better, thanks to the arrival of three tasty updates and a brand new DJing app.

Pulse Code Rhythm Studio 1.03, £0.69
This self-contained electronic music production app has just been updated with (among other things), a 909-style drum machine (the DR-9) and Hornet, a subtractive ribbon synth. You can now use up to four devices in your song, too. At this sale price, you really can’t go wrong.
Xewton Music Studio 2.0, £10.49
Music Studio was one of the first DAW-style apps to arrive on iOS and version 2 ups its game considerably. Audio tracks, mic recording, Audio Copy/Paste, new instruments and drum pads represent just some of the many improvements, making this a serious mobile production contender.
Algoriddim djay 1.4, £13.99
Optimised for iOS 5, djay now supports that OS’s enhanced AirPlay features and enables you to backup and sync song settings via iCloud. New FX, an FX pad, audio copy/paste and the option to sort your library by BPM are also among the new features.
DS Media Labs Mixr, £13.99
A brand-new contender in the iPad DJing market, Mixr has a familiar look to it and promises to let you “pitch, tap to tempo, scratch, multi-cue and mix with precision”. Tracks can be loaded via the Crate Manager, there are effects and your mixes can be recorded.
