The sharp and responsive screen found on Apple’s iDevices make them a hotbed for DJ applications. Since the App Store’s inception, we’ve seen several DJ’ing applications that try and capture the addicting music-mixing art.

One of our all time favorites is djay by algoriddim. Its easy to use interface and unique AUTOMIX feature make for a solid DJ app. Obviously, touchscreens have limitations that make it difficult to do any serious record spinning, but iDJ Live might have a solution for us..

iDJ Live by Numark is a digital turntable set that includes a cross fader and several other nifty features. The cool thing is that accessory hooks up to your iDevice via the 30-pin dock connector and interfaces with the aforementioned djay app.

iDJ Live is available for $99.95, and you can figure out where to snag one from Numark’s website. It’s crazy to think that DJ gigs once required a car full of equipment. Now DJs could theoretically fit their tools inside a backpack, though we doubt that’ll be the case in the pro market anytime soon.

What do you think of the iDJ Live?

  • Redford

    Cool!!=) Must have for me=) Thanks for the info=)

    Whoa! That crossfader actually looks useable! And the motorised platters are a nice touch too, I wonder if it could work as a midi controller (with an adaptor) for real dj software such as traktor….

  • Kikaida

    @Adam, I could be wrong, but I don’t think the platters are motorized…

    • Adam

      Yeah, I see that now, watching it at first I thought they seemed to spin on too accurately to be from the dj pushing them but it looks like they are just nice and loose.
      Well spotted!

  • What are you guys talking about? If we need to buy separate equipment, why not buy a better DJ equipment and chuck the iDevice away?

    • Adam

      It’s made by numark, not the best but not bad either, also, good dj software is expensive as are good midi controllers.
      This would be an inexpensive way for a beginner to get into dj’ing.
      It clearly has limitations such as no physical pitch fader but that’s reflected in the price…
