If you're a fan of Daft Punk then you'll go wild for iDaft. This free app lets you remix the works of the French DJs on your iPhone.
Even if you've got no previous music production experience you'll have no trouble creating fun mixes with iDaft. The app contains soundboards of vocal samples from two of Daft Punk's hit tracks, Harder Better Faster Stronger and Technologic. Simply tap the word you want and the robotic vocal will play.
The Beat button in iDaft turns on the backing track, then the fun really starts as you play the samples in time to the music. Hardcore Daft Punk fans can try to recreate the original version, but it's fun enough to just play around with the sounds and experiment. iDaft also lets you alter the pitch of the various vocal samples by clicking one of the buttons at the bottom of the screen. There are no points to be had in iDaft, so you can fool around with the beats without the pressure of worrying about a score.
There's one glaring omission to iDaft - a record mode. There are times when you pull off a fantastic bit of mixing that you'll want to capture it and share it with your friends, which is just not possible. Hopefully a recording feature will be added in a forthcoming update of the app.
Despite this limitation, anyone with an interest in electronic music will have a blast with iDaft.
