MESSE06: Numark iDJ2 Nails iPod Mixing for DJs
iDJ2 - finally all you need?

The iDJ release at NAMM raised many eyebrows, with it’s dual iPod DJ deck styling and aggressive price. However for some this just wasn’t quite there – the lack of pitch control meant the likelihood of beat-matching was pretty hit and miss. The new iDJ2 however, is a different story, taking on board the requests from DJs, Numark refined the concept and took to the next level. The iDJ2 features a new iPod docking system that allows users to play two songs simultaneously from a single iPod, with out the need of a computer. Users can also hook up multiple mass storage devices including additional iPod’s, Memory Stick’, and external USB hard drives through rear panel USB ports. In addition to USB connectivity, the iDJ2 comes complete with line inputs for any audio source including a microphone, CD players and turntables. The iDJ2 also features a new graphic interface too. The oversized LCD screen offers waveform display and visual track-profiling. The iDJ2 allows DJs to record their musical performances to the iPod or any connected drive, in addition to full control audio play back. iDJ2 supports multiple USB connectivity options, iPodTM docking and charging, and support for MP3, Ogg Vorbis, and AAC (non-DRM) formats. No pricing information is yet available, but considering the remarkable price of the original iDJ, I think we can expect something pretty competitive. Also featured in the video is the D2 Director, using the same engine, but without the mixer controls, this unit is designed to slot right into your existing DJ setup

The iDJ2 is a worthless product, DO NOT waste your money on this. The features are great, but the unit is completely unstable, it shut down on me in the middle of a gig, and left me with nothing. It has all kinds of bugs and glitches, and when you contact Numark they say that there is nothing wrong with it, even though it kept freezing, shutting, etc. Save youself the headache, time, and money, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!
