New unit Lightning-enabled, can draw power from connected PC
Pioneer Electronics announced its next generation DDJ-WeGO2 ultra-compact DJ controller that makes it easy to learn DJing essentials by providing users with a simple means of creating mixes with user-supplied music collections. Like its predecessor, the DDJ-WeGO2 offers functions that simplify DJing including Jog FX, Pulse Control, multi-color LED illumination, Virtual DJ Limited Edition DJ software for Windows and Mac, and additional support for other DJ software such as Algoriddim's djay.
The DDJ-WeGO2 adds quick connection with the iPhone 5 and iPad using only the included Pioneer cable with Lightning connector, and a Multi-purpose grip that makes the controller easy to carry as well providing a convenient stand for compatible iOS devices.
The DDJ-WeGO2 will be available in white, black and red to complement the user's taste, with each color option now covering the entire controller body. The DDJ-WeGO2 colors also match the line of HDJ-500 DJ headphones. The controller features multi-color LED backlighting for the jog wheel and a color-customizable user interface for the included software.
The ultra compact DDJ-WeGO2 will be available in October 2013 with a suggested retail price of $429.
