DJing on a laptop is doable, but a long way from ideal, hence controllers popped up, designed to compliment each other perfectly. And the same is happening with iPads too. The difference here is that instead of sitting alongside each other, the iPad is small enough to be assimilated, making a symbiosis between iPad and controller. And that’s just what Numark’s iDJ Pro is.
It was first seen at NAMM, encased in a perspex force field. Next up it appeared at Musikmesse, touchable for all, and working pretty well. But what we have here is a final version, ready for us to maul and paw for ourselves. But being such a new piece, and the start of the next generation of DJ gear (oh believe me there’s much more of this sort of thing to come), I wanted to open this up to all of you – to ask questions of me as I review, but also to pitch to Numark, who will be watching progress and reading your comments and questions.
So let’s have them – your intelligent questions that is. What do you want to know so much that you can’t wait for the review?
