Numark iDJ3 Digital DJ Setup: Why 3 Is The Magic Number
The Numark iDJ3 combines the digital DJ controller ability of the Mixdeck Pro with an iPod or iPhone dock, making it easy to mix from whatever source you prefer. Let's take a look at what else it does!
Something new has been lurking in the darkness. Something fresh, something shiny, something with, with…an iPod dock?
Introducing to you my friends, something not at all scary, the Numark iDJ3. This is a complete DJ system, working with the music on your computer (either Mac or PC) alongside your iPod. This beast directly connects to your computer and enables you to mix your favourite tracks using its DJ controls. You can then dock your iPod, or iPhone to record your mix or also play your tracks.
With iDJ3 you get a classic two-turntable-and-a-mixer setup but with the many extra options using digital. With this you can mix, loop tracks, scratch, add effects and much more. It also has all the relevant inputs and outputs you may need, be it for headphones, speakers and also a mic input. All of this, and still it is totally portable, enabling you to take it out on the road with no fuss and go out there and deliver an incredible show.
Let’s dive a little deeper shall we?
The iDJ3 has two decks, with large touch-sensitive turntables, which work very well. They’re very accurate, making scratching enjoyable and easy, and the ability to locate precise points within your tracks a doddle. Alongside these two decks, iDJ3 has a very easy audio mixer which is extremely universal, meaning beginners can get into it, whilst more experienced DJs will be impressed with it’s abilities.
iDJ3 comes complete with MixVibes Cross LE DJ software, making it very easy to mix your favourite tunes. You’ll find that you spend much less time looking at your computer screen, as the controls on the system light up, so even when the lights are down, you’re still rocking.
You can be performing live, creating and recording your mixes at home. Cross LE is great for sorting your library by whichever preference you choose, be it genre, BPM, artist and all those other things that you wanna order your tracks by! It is extensive with its information, also showing cover art, the songs rating, and works with pretty much any musical file type! Got only OGG files? Never fear, the iDJ 3 is here.
You can also set up your iDJ3 to work with your iTunes music library. If you already have a software preference, don’t worry; this baby is compatible with almost all DJ Software’s, being a MIDI-over-USB controller.
The great thing about the iDJ3 is the interface also built in, making it very useful. Not just a software controller you can also use it for recording and previewing with your headphones, mc’ing over the music with a microphone, and input and output high-quality sound.
Nowadays if your controller doesn’t have an iPod dock, then you are missing out on the most popular portable music player! Numark know this, and have created a dock that will take any model of iPod or iPhone, and make it very easy for you to play, mix and record music with it. You can even charge your iPod with an included power adapter.
All in all, I thoroughly recommend you checking out the iDJ3 and seeing what it’s all about. If you want to take some great reactive hardware on the road, giving you the ability to do all the professional mixing you require, this is the one for you!
