The record spinning purists tore their hair out when Numark brought out the iDJ console last year. Imagine Djing with two iPods? Well, they’ve upgraded it – and you only need the one iPod now.
The iDJ2, which Numark claim is a professional iPod mixing console (though I’ve yet to see the old version in a club or even bar) now has a single iPod dock, but rather cleverly, can play two tunes at a time. It can deliver real-time scratching, pitch control, looping, and full cueing up of your tunes.
There’s also an LCD screen, visual track-profiling, the ability to record musical performances to a docked iPod (which you can then offer as a podcast I imagine – copyright permitting) and support for MP3, Ogg Vorbis, and AAC formats. And don’t worry if you don’t use an iPod – connectivity is open to other digital music players via USB ports.
No word on price and release date. We’ll keep you posted.
