Follow Your DJing Dreams With Numark’s iDJ Live

Numark iDJ Live (Box)

The holidays are almost over folks, and if you have any aspiring DJs in your midst, you should definitely consider putting a last minute call to Santa and his elves for the Numark iDJ Live! As stated in the product’s description, the controller is perfect for music lovers who have never tried DJing before. With its streamlined interface, the iDJ Live is designed for beginners and pros on the go and is very much plug-and-play. All you need is an iPad, iPod touch or iPhone (be sure to check the compatibility chart on the product page), the Algoriddim Djay app and you’re all set. Of course, you can always hook the unit up to larger speakers for a better experience, too.

Sounds great! But what would I need for that?

The iDJ Live comes with a dual mono 1/8″ (3.5 mm) headphone/speaker splitter cable, so all you would need is a male-to-male 3.5 mm cable like this: Aux cable
…and some sweet speakers like these:
(You’d be very wise to get a speaker system with a subwoofer.)
Limitless Creations x643

and you’re ready to rock!

About the unit

The iDJ Live comes with dual bass, treble and volume controls, sync and cue buttons to keep your mix tight and two large platters that can be used to either “scratch,” or search through tracks to set cue points. It also comes with a Browse knob that scrolls through your music library the way you’re used to doing with your “i” devices already, so there’s no need to learn a confusing new interface. You can even record your mixes or set Automix mode to let the iDJ Live and the Djay app mix your favorite playlist(s) automatically.

The iDJ Live includes a handy iPad stand as well, enabling you to keep an eye on your screen without having to bend over the controller or having to rig up a shaky DIY stand of your own. Also, as the iDJ Live unit does draw power from the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, it would be in your best interest to save some battery life by turning off 3/4G and/or Wi-Fi, turn off location services like GPS, and adjusting your display brightness. If you’re worried whether or not it’ll get to your house in time for Christmas, if you happen to live in the greater Los Angeles area, you can swing by and pick it up from Sonic Electronix’s will call area up here in Valencia.

That about wraps it up, so on behalf of the team at Sonic Electronix, I’d like to wish you all very happy holidays!

If you’re a DJ looking for a complete system that mixes various kinds of music sources, look no further, the Numark MixDeck DJ System is what you need. This versatile universal DJ system is compatible and allows you to mix and perform with CDs, MP3, iPod, USB flash drives, your computer, and other analog players. Numark has kept the traditional layout most DJs are used to with the two-deck and mixer design, making it easy to jump right in and get down to business. To keep this valuable DJ system protected during transportation from venue to venue, Numark has created a hard case designed specifically for MixDeck DJ System.

Numarks MixDeck is equipped with two large, touch sensitive platter and controls that illuminate when cueing and scratching your music. The two slot loading drives, located at the bottom of the system, operate smooth and fast and work with both CDs and MP3 CDs. Don’t worry about having to lug your computer around to gigs anymore, the MixDeck allows USB flash drive connection to each deck providing you with access to thousands of your MP3’s. These built-in decks do more than just play CD’s and MP3’s; they also work as software controllers, just connect the system to your Mac or PC using a USB cable. This allows you to control the music you have stored on your computer using the included Traktor Numark Edition software. Each one of these advanced decks also allows you to put your own touch on your performances with the integrated beat-synced DSP effects. These effects include chop, echo, filter, flanger, pan, and phaser options.

The MixDeck DJ system also features a built-in universal iPod dock; this allows you to play songs from your iPod and lets you record your set into the iPod as well. Once the iPod is docked, you won’t have to touch it to control it thanks to the iPod fader, menu controls, and click knob integrated onto the MixDeck.

The MixDeck Universal DJ system includes a built-in mixer with each channel featuring EQ/rotary kills, replaceable crossfader, and complete controls for iPod. Some other cool features are the two large, backlit displays for BPM, CD/MP3 text tags, and folder navigation, 1/4″ microphone input with own gain and independent 15dB Bass and treble equalizers, tap tempo button for manual BPM entry, seamless looping, easily accessible hot cues and a studio-quality computer interface.
