Splyce review

Check out this party-friendly music-mixing app

Splyce

Splyce

Like having a DJ in your pocket, Splyce automatically mixes the tracks on a playlist. It offers some cool transitions between tracks too, including vinyl stop, brake and echo freeze. While these are selected automatically, you can also toggle each type on or off. IAPs are required to unlock some features, but it’s only £1.81/$2.99 for the whole set.

One thing to note is that you can only mix locally stored music as it lacks the iOS version’s ability to stream from Pulselocker. Splyce analyses songs added to a playlist, while we found that it sometimes doubled the true BPM of a track, this didn’t affect the mixing. The playlist can be sorted by BPM (rising or falling) or arranged manually.

Tapping a playing track’s name reveals a graphical view of its elements. The only playback controls are pause and skip. Mixing options include mix mode, maximum track length, mix time and a lighting option – either flashing the screen or a light bulb. If you’re after a party-friendly music player, Splyce could fit the bill.
