Numark has shipped the industry's first DJ mixing console with Universal Dock for iPod, that features the ability to scratch, control pitch, key-lock, and simultaneously play two songs from a single iPod with a stunning full-color screen.

The Numark iDJ2 is the only iPod mixing console that provides music control with real-time scratching, pitch control, seamless loop, and full cueing. For the first time ever, DJs can entertain crowds of all sizes with a single, docked iPod using pro-grade, balanced XLR or stereo RCA output, all with a brilliantly clear color screen that insures they never miss a detail.

The iDJ2 features an innovative new iPod docking system that allows users to play two songs simultaneously from a single iPod, without the need of a computer. With iDJ2, DJs can hook up multiple mass storage devices including additional iPods, thumb drives, and external USB hard drives through rear panel USB ports. In addition to USB connectivity with iPod docking and charging, the iDJ2 comes complete with line inputs for any audio source including a microphone, CD players and turntables, making it one of the most flexible DJ products ever produced.

Anyone can easily manage their music library with visual track-profiling using the iDJ2's highly intuitive graphic interface. The color navigation abilities and full-function mixing are tightly integrated to usher in a new era for modern DJs. The iDJ2 equips DJs to record their musical performances to the iPod or any connected drive, in addition to offering full control audio play back.

iDJ2 even comes with Numark's exclusive Crate feature. The Crate is a unique feature that allows you to hold music you expect to play in a waiting list on the top performance level. Music can be placed into the Crate at anytime from search results, browse results, or playlists. Music in the crate can then be managed by sending it to decks or reordering on the fly. All of this has been designed to work seamlessly while playing songs. The Crate gets it's name from the traditional function of a vinyl DJ's record crate where DJs would often prop their records prior to placing on their decks. With Numark's Crate feature, DJs can line up an entire Playlist as they go, with the flexibility to swap songs or change their play order in seconds, without missing a beat. iDJ2 supports loading multiple file formats into the Crate including MP3, WAV, and AAC (non-DRM).

A special iPod Direct Mode function allows users to play all iPod-supported music including songs purchased from the iTunes music store. Numark's iDJ2 is available now with a suggested list price of $799 and an approximate street price of $599.

Numark has also announced the release of Virtual Vinyl 5, CUE and CUE LE. The new versions of each package include a completely new database system called Database hot-swap, which allows DJs using multiple computers to maintain a single database across all of their computers. Additional features include cover art retrieval, improved database protection, and strong improvements to the Playlist that allow DJs to streamline live performance.

Numark's club tested, professional-level DJ software and a personal computer are all you need to create the ultimate mix. With Numark CUE, you can monitor mixes through headphones and visually on your computer screen, and output your masterpiece to a club's sound and video system. CUE 5's built-in broadcast functionality enables Internet podcasting.

Every DJ can also be a VJ using CUE 5's built-in video transitions and effects. CUE 5 supports CD+G formats for a quick and easy Karaoke setup. You can mix, scratch, juggle, interchange and sample audio and video files without expensive, bulky hardware.

Version 5 also includes loads of new enhancements including FreeFrame plug-in compatibility, Smart Database management, and a powerful new Global Search function. A detailed, updated feature list and CUE 5 itself (free, downloadable trial version) is available.

CUE LE 5 is a special bundled version CUE that comes with Numark's Total Control, DMC2 hardware controllers. Details on the differences between CUE LE and the full CUE can be found online. CUE LE 5 is a free upgrade for previous CUE LE owners.

Virtual Vinyl 5 is an incredibly reliable DJ hardware and software solution that lets you scratch, mix and sample digital audio and video files using any analog turntable, CD player or HD player.
