We’re not exactly Jazzy Jeff in the floor-filling game, but even we noticed that the original iDJ’s features were rudimentary at best. The pioneering mixer has, though, made a quick return, and this time it’s targeting a spot in the superclubs.
The big change on the iDJ2 is that there’s only one iPod dock. This isn’t the end of your mixing ambitions, though – it can play two songs simultaneously from your white buddy, a clever trick that means you don’t need two ‘Pods for a session.
There are also tons of new features for the well-practised vinyl spinner. Unlike the original, you get pitch control, looping and real-time scratching to showcase your skills, and there’s a new LCD and graphic interface to manage your library.
You’re not just restricted to your iPod either – thanks to line inputs, you can connect it to any other audio source, including turntables, CD players and microphones, to help inject some variety.
The USB connectivity also lets you connect and record to extra ‘Pods or other external storage devices, furthering its ‘world’s most versatile mixer’ claims.
Numark couldn’t provide us with any pricing information or a release date for the iDJ2, but we’ll update this story as soon as it becomes available – in the meantime, pay a visit to Numark’s site for more info.
