Slimline, portable and affordable, the new iON iDJ2Go offers users of iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone DJ software a physical surface to mix from.
In 5 Reasons Why iOS Is Great News For DJing, we discussed how DJ apps on Apple devices let potential digital DJs who own an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad dip their toes into the world of DJing at next to no cost.
But after the inital buzz of mixing tracks on your mobile device fades, you soon realise that a flat touchscreen perhaps isn’t best suited to those functions DJs do most, such as use of jogwheels, rotary controllers and buttons. This is where ION’s new iDJ2Go, which we review today, comes in.

The ION Audio iCUE3 is a great way to begin DJing on a tiny budget.
The ION Audio Discover DJ System is a no-frills, cheap-as-chips DJ controller. A “taster” product for digital DJing, it’s been around for a year or so now, but looks set to be a big hit this Christmas with a street price of just US$82.
While clearly not meant to be a professional piece of equipment, it has all the essentials for basic digital DJing: it is certainly possible to DJ “properly” on this thing, and you CAN get decent results out of it. What’s more, you can record them. Ever told yourself that one day you’ll record that mixtape you’ve had in your head for years? This piece of kit will let you do just that.
