We grabbed a video talkthrough from Numark’s product guy Eric, looking “in the flesh” at the features of the new Numark iDJ Live II.
While unashamedly a budget product, this adds dual-action jogs (scratch and nudge) which are also illuminated – something unusual at this price point.
It’s also Midi class compliant and Core Midi compliant, meaning it will work out of the box with iPads and PCs.
There is a version available with a new and old (30 pin) iOS connector so it doesn’t matter what age your device is, you’ll be able to use it with software such as Algoriddim’s djay easily.
We think gear like this is great. It’s fun, and it’s a gateway into real DJ gear.
We think gear like this is great. It’s fun, and it’s a gateway into real DJ gear – and you can get great results from it, trust us. Also, things are moving so fast, that the idea that you can plug something like this into an iPad and DJ, anywhere, is still novel enough to be cool as far as we’re concerned. Hopefully if gear like this gets more and more people in to DJing, it’ll be good for all of us.
Do you like the look of this little starter Dj controller? Or would you rather stuff like this wasn’t on the market? Would you consider buying the Numark iDJ Live II as a first controller, or as a portable/second controller? Let us know your thoughts below.
