In Focus: Numark iDJ Live
Ron Blanco on Sep 9, 2011
With the new Idj Live, DJ specialists Numark continue their pioneering design work and with this collaboration alongside algoriddim.com, bring their decades of experience to the rapidly expanding Apple iOS app/3rd party hardware marketplace. As always, they have managed to hit the right balance between forward thinking technology and price point, making this accessible to all levels of DJ
When I first started out on the ones and twos some 15 years ago, had my future self turned up in a still smoking Delorean and informed me that one day I could DJ at a professional level using my iPhone and a small portable control unit built by Numark - the creators of my stylish direct drive turntables - my actions would likely be thus:
It’s fair to say that the abrupt appearance of a time travelling Delorean and 2011 hipster me would NOT be the most ridiculous happening of that day.
Now flip back to present day and even with all of the advances I’ve grown up with, sometimes I have to stop myself and just think, WOW. Right now, thanks to Numark, Algoriddim and the boffins at Apple this is one of those moments.
