Numark, the world’s leading manufacturer of DJ technology, announces DJ2GO, the most portable DJ controller ever, is now shipping to retailers. Numark unveiled DJ2GO at the 2011 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California this past January.
DJ2GO is a portable, affordable and highly capable DJ controller that allows DJs to control their favorite DJ software with a tactile feel that can’t be matched by using a computer mouse and keyboard. DJ2GO is a micro controller that weighs just 13 oz. but provides a layout familiar to DJs that includes two platters, a crossfader, pitch and level controls as well as Deck A, Deck B, Master and Headphone gain controls. In addition, users can load and assign tracks to either of the two included deck control sections without ever touching a mouse. Sync and headphone buttons allow the DJ to instantly sync two tracks and monitor either deck section.
Included with DJ2GO is a special edition of Virtual DJ software designed to integrate perfectly with the capabilities of DJ2GO, so DJs can pick up DJ2GO and literally start performing on the spot. Because DJ2GO is MIDI-compliant, it can be used easily with virtually any DJ software by simply re-mapping the controls in the applicable application. A simple connection via a USB cable to a Mac or PC and installation of the Virtual DJ software is all that is needed to be up and running.
DJ2GO portable DJ controller is now available from musical instrument and DJ retailers with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $79.00 and an estimated street price of $59.95.
“DJ2GO’s compact size and straight forward controls are going to make it a standard tool for DJs everywhere”, said Chris Roman, Numark Product Manager. “With this much capability at such an affordable price, DJ2GO is the perfect replacement for the mouse in a DJ’s laptop bag.”
