Numark iDJ

Numark, the leading name in the world of DJ products and accessories, proudly announces the iDJ Mixing Console for iPod portable music players. The iDJ enables mobile DJs and iPod enthusiasts to seamlessly integrate their portable music libraries with other music and sound reinforcement systems?transforming the iPod from a personal music player into a source playback device. With its compact form factor, comprehensive feature set, and a blue on white aesthetic appeal that blends perfectly with the iPod, Numark?s iDJ makes the music more accessible and the party better than ever.

Extended information

The iDJ features extruded, anodized aluminum panels, zero tolerance precision switches and knobs for a tight, precise feel, and a soft touch edge bumper that both protects and visually enhances the unit. This full-featured mixer with dual iPod docking stations incorporates a microphone input plus both quarter- and eighth-inch headphone outputs to complete the mixing experience. With USB connectivity to both PC and Macintosh computers, the iDJ functions as a music-loading base as well. Further, the iDJ supports the limited recording capabilities of the iPod?enabling the recording of voice notes for memos, etc. Combine all this with the thoughtful turntable spindle receptacle that enables placement of the iDJ on a turntable when space is limited, and the iDJ is ready to rock.

Numark?s iDJ features two universal iPod docking stations that accept all model iPods with the bottom connector. Featuring large iPod navigation controls, this two-channel mixer provides 3-band EQ with gain control for each channel and a dedicated microphone input with tone and level control. Each channel also provides phono/line inputs for adding additional devices such as CD players and samplers into the mix. With large knobs that are pleasing to the touch, the iDJ provides just the right feel for play control.

On the output side, the iDJ incorporates a master output LED meter for visual confirmation of one?s audio signals and a professional quality crossfader with fader start control for blending and alternating between the two channel?s audio signals. Additionally, the iDJ provides a cue tone and cue source selector for managing music sources. With both quarter- and eighth-inch headphone outputs, the iDJ is able to accommodate both consumer style headphones with minijack connectors as well as professional grade headphones with the larger connector type. To connect to sound systems and external recorders, the iDJ provides Master and Record outputs.

For computer connectivity, Numark?s iDJ is right on the money. This feature-packed mixer provides USB connectivity to both PC and Macintosh computers, facilitating convenient iPod docking to one?s personal computer. With the iDJ?s USB capabilities, music enthusiasts can mix music to their heart?s content while still having full interoperability with their computer for modifying/expanding their music libraries. And with an S-Video output (for iPod Photo model players only), the iDJ is ready to patch into video displays for complete multimedia.

I don't think it's quality stuff. Nice to try, but I wouldn't buy it.

Nope... it looks a little bit cheap!

Prehaps I can try one this wednesday! When I've tried one I will report my experience!

I'm also curious about it... never seen it working on exhabitions....
Let the BASS be louder

Well,

As with the I-pod, it is not a beatmatch/turntablist DJ-thing.

The I-pod doesn't have pitchcontrol. Simple as that.

This is useful for those crazy people who want ALL Ipod gadgets... So if you can buy this and another Ipod... Then you can be a radio DJ! Wtf?!

...

Idiots... But Numark is smart enough to make some money out of those idiots and that a good thing, 'cause they can make another CD-X kind of device.

The thing I find the most stupid of this device is that you need two i-pods..
Jorrit    posted on 26-07-2005 13:19
well, with 2 ipods u could mix if you had pitch.
So forgetting the pitch was rather stupid...

sebastiaan    posted on 26-07-2005 17:29

Maartenb    posted on 26-07-2005 20:45
komt dit ding serieus uit? Waarom zou Numark er in godsnaam dan geen pitch opzetten
wilum    posted on 26-07-2005 21:47
lijkt me wel onhandig (jke hebt 2 ipods nodig) lijkt het wel

Stom idee voor geld uit mensen te krijgen die gadjets willen :p

  Numark wil een graantje meepikken rond de hype die de ipod nu eenmaal is.
  Een serieus produkt om lekker de plaatjes aan elkaar te mixen kan ik dit niet noemen

I think there will be firmware upgrade for the iPod in the future, which will also support a softwarepitchfader (or some 'whizkid' will make some kind of software for the iPod).

And if this is qualitymaterial, but I think it doesn't look like good quality, it will be a nice product for the iPod-DJ's. Winking my eye

Is not worth it, even with software updates, an iPod is an iPod thats it nothing else, it would never be a DJ gear.

I think this product is aimed for DJs wannabes :P

The problem is that they are using the iPod: the iPod doesn't feature pitchcontrol, instant start, framesearch (and cue), etc. This is not very stange because the iPod was meant as a portable audio device and not for (professional) DJ's. The only thing Numark ad's to the 2 iPod's with this iDJ is 2 dockingstations, external buttons to control each iPod and a mixer. As said before: don't blame Numark for trying to profit from the iPod hype!

shame on you if you use this!!!!
Nvie    posted on 29-07-2005 19:41
IF you use this... you must be hopeless.

No pitch? Is this a joke? If you want to make somthin' for dj's, you would take care of that point! And then they call theirselves "leader in DJ technology"

So far my opinion

iPod's just a state of the art music player, nothing more, nothing less, so I don't really get this console...

for a while drop the no pitch fearture and take a closer look, you need 2 ipods and a console:

2x basic ipod: €319 x 2 = €638
numark console: €399

total cost: €1037


For that price you can buy yourself a pair of CDJ-100's or a dual cd player and some basic mixer...

Dit is echt niet bedoelt voor de profi dj.. ik neem aan dat jullie dat al wel hadden gezien

Maar het is idd voor een leuk "thuis-apparaatje" veel te duur..
