Who says you can’t create massive files on tiny computers? Smartphones and tablets now contain the processing power that desktop computers once dreamed about. Countless apps have flooded the market that let anyone create music, video, graphics and other huge files. And who needs the cloud — and the worry of connectivity — when we’ve got so much storage right on the device.

We’re going to profile a few interesting apps to give you a flavor of what’s out there. These apps let you go big — and sometimes too big, so you may need some smart mobile storage to contain all your creations.

Up first is Traktor DJ.

Imagine you’re stuck on a long flight to a bachelor party or in traffic on the way to Burning Man (probably not hard to imagine), Traktor DJ gives you a full set of turntables and all the mixing equipment right there on your iPad. In fact, Gizmodo says it’s “better” than turntables. The main advantage, the tech blog argues, is the design:

“Traktor DJ shows you the two tracks you’re mixing together the way they exist in the digital world: As linear waveforms. The app finds the beats of your music using the same processing algorithms as Native Instruments’ well-respected Traktor computer software.”

That’s an important difference with Traktor and a lot of the music making apps out there. The Traktor DJ app might cost $9.99 — and come on, buy three fewer coffees this month and you’ve covered your music making — but the coders have already proven they can build quality DJ software. The desktop version of Traktor powers a whole lot of laptops that keep people bumping at the club.

But of course high quality files are not petite. If you spend enough time weaving together beats you’re going to be pushing the one gig mark pretty quick. And the last thing you want when you go to grab those sweet tracks is worrying about a connection to the cloud. So let’s raise a glass for mobile storage like the Connect Wireless Stick that’ll keep their heads ringing.


The Connect Wireless Stick is available at Amazon.
