Oculus Rift, a division of Facebook Inc., has announced its virtual reality VR DJing app, Reality Decks. The app is already available at the Oculus Store for $19.99 ($US).
The app arrives with a bundle of 10 tracks from featured artists, including Fuzzy, Robot Riddims and Yesterday, as well as 25 vocal hooks for scratching. Beginner DJs are guided with six instructional videos and five recorded tracks for practice sessions.
A great training tool, mixes can be recorded directly via the Oculus headset.
The app features the RDT-100 turntable and RDM-100 mixer, the first turntable and mixer designed from the ground up for virtual reality.
Reality Decks is not the first step into DJing for virtual reality: Vinyl Reality (created by Germany’s EntroPi) stepped into that field in late-2017. Plastician has also taken his talents into the world of VR.
