The USB port has been enjoying itself with car-shaped mice and hamster wheels recently, and there’s no sign of the fun drying up – now it’s got a DJ mixing kit.We doubt Carl Cox will be frantically pre-ordering the iMX02 for his rig, but the tempting mix of knobs, buttons and sliders makes it prime fodder for frittering away some quiet lunch hours.After loading the software onto your PC or Mac, you’ll be confronted with two virtual turntables, which you can drag tracks onto and blend using the pitch controls. Then it’s just a case of putting on the included headphones, adjusting the Master Tempo and freestyling your vocals into the microphone. And if you’ve still got no idea what you’re doing, just press the Automatic Beat Matching button and pass yourself off as some sort of DJ prodigy.
