I do not actually own an Ipod touch, but I know that there are
downloadable apps for it, some of which are free, others paid for.
This is just an idea for an app.
The app basically has a picture of a record on a turntable, turning
a certain speed. When you drag your finger across
record, it slows down, speeds up or reverses direction depending
how you "moved" the record, and the track that is currently playing
changes accordingly. If you don't move the on screen record, it
gradually returns to it's normal direction and speed along with the
actual music that's playing. If you "hold" the record in place, it
and the music stops too. Basically, the music plays normally until
"move" the onscreen record, and then the music reacts accordingly.
I highly doubt you'd see actual DJs using this at a performance-
just an "Itoy" (I know there was a video game on PS2 with a
called "I-toy" but that's totally irrelevant to this idea :) I don't
you should be able to "bump" the needle of the record by touching
though because then it would be too easy to "bump" by mistake, or
be really small-or maybe the ability to move the on-screen needle
touching it should be an option you can disable.
This sort of thing has been done in the form of a *CD PLAYER* with
fake turn table on top that does the same sort of thing, basically
controlling the rotation speed of the actual CD to simulate "DJ-ing"
If this has been done already, feel free to say so. Remember, I
have an Ipod touch, so I wouldn't really know much about the
application selection on those things.
