Reactive Music Apps

Are there any reactive music apps for Android?

I was always jealous of the RjDj app for the iPhone, and I'm looking if there is anything similar for android phones. An extensive search hasn't yielded anything, but I figure I could easily be looking for the wrong terms. It's worth noting that I'm looking for something passive (or reactive) like RjDj, not something explicitly interactive.

Any ideas? I remember RjDj blowing minds when it came out, and I'm shocked there aren't more imitators. Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately while pd (the engine that runs RjDj) has been ported to Android, versions of the OS prior to 4.1 have terrible input latency (>100ms). This means developers haven't made many real-time apps that use the mic (see also: real time guitar effects). Hopefully this will change as more recent versions of Android become more prevalent.

Good to know. Thanks for the explanation. For anyone down the road finding this, pd is Pure Data.
