Numark, a manufacturer of DJ technology, announced iDJ Live, a portable DJ controller for iPad, iPhone or iPod. Before the announcement, Numark showcased the iDJ Live at the 2011 NAMM Show in Anaheim, California this past January.
iDJ Live is an iOS-DJ controller designed to enable anyone to be an iPad, iPhone or iPod DJ. Numark has partnered with algoriddim, the makers of the highly popular djay software, to bring support for iDJ Live to the djay app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
The iDJ Live system enables users to mix and scratch using their music from their iTunes library in algoriddim’s djay app or other CoreMIDI-enabled DJ apps.
“With a familiar setup and great controls, iDJ Live brings true DJ capabilities to iPad. It’s so affordable and fun to use, iDJ Live is going to open up the world of DJing to entirely new audiences,” said Chris Roman, Numark Product Manager.
iDJ Live features two large performance platters and a central mixer section with a crossfader, buttons and knobs to recreate the two-decks-and-a-mixer setup that professional DJs prefer. iDJ Live comes complete with an iPad DJ stand, custom audio cable for connecting to a sound system and headphones, and 30-pin dock connector for iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.
