Numark DJ2GO Review – Features
Numark is a famous manufacturer of DJ accessories and audio equipment, with many years of experience in DJ related products. DJ2GO 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 gain controls. DJ2GO is also the perfect backup, as it slips easily into a laptop bag or backpack and includes everything you need to mix your music and DJ like a pro. Despite its size, it really does have all the features you need for parties. You can connect your computer in seconds using the included USB cable, then you’re good to go. DJ2Go receives its power and controls your DJ software with one simple cable. Everything you need to mix is right in front of you. Just load your tracks to the decks from your software and start playing.
Numark DJ2GO Review – Hardware
The Numark DJ2GO appears cheap and plastic but as you pick it up it feels solid. The buttons are well made and quite stable. Rubber buttons light up and sync actually blinks to the beat. It’s small and perfectly designed to fit right at the front of any laptop, and equally low profile too. We think that one of the downsides of its dimensions is that the jogwheels are just too small. Not that it’s difficult to use them, but maybe we are too used to bigger ones to enjoy these. The slider is very smooth and sensitive and will only move when you want it to. If you’re trying to get into DJing we suggest to keep your hands above the decks and not level like you would on a laptop. The only negative note about the hardware is that you have to press the load buttons a bit too hard to load tracks, but you can drag and drop using the mousepad.
Numark DJ2GO Review – Software
Included with DJ2GO there’s a special edition of Virtual DJ software, designed to mate perfectly with the capabilities of the controller, so you can pick up DJ2GO and literally start performing on the spot. Since DJ2GO is MIDI-compliant, it can be used easily with virtually any DJ software, like Traktor for example.
