The ION DJ2Go is an entry-level DJ controller designed for bedroom DJs, beginners and mobile DJs that require ultra-portability and all the basic playback controls for DJ software.
More On The DJ2GO From ION’s Website:
“The ION DJ2GO is not only the most portable DJ controller you’ll find, it’s also incredibly easy to use. This highly capable DJ controller will enpower you with the ability to mix all of your favorite music virtually anywhere.
DJ2GO gives you a tactile feel that can’t be matched by DJing with just your computer mouse and keyboard. In fact, with DJ2GO there’s virtually no need to touch your mouse or keyboard while performing. Everything you need to do, from selecting songs and cueing, to beat-matching and volume adjustment can be controlled by DJ2GO’s generous array of faders, knobs and bright, backlit buttons. DJ2GO weighs just 13 oz. but provides a layout that DJs prefer, including two platters, a crossfader, pitch and level controls as well as Deck A, Deck B, Master and Headphone gain controls. Sync and headphone buttons allow you to instantly sync two tracks and monitor either deck section.
Did we mention DJ2GO is the most portable DJ controller in the world? For the first time ever, you can have a DJ rig right into your laptop case or back-pack—a controller so compact you will barely know it’s there! With DJ2GO you can turn a boring plane ride into an exciting mixing session just as easily as you can turn any get-together into an energized, nonstop party. Plus, DJ2GO is MIDI-compliant, so it can be used easily with virtually any DJ software (Now includes DEX 3 and RED Mobile 3!).
DJ2GO from ION: it doesn’t get any easier to mix, party and perform anywhere.”
For new Digital DJs thinking about making a move from using a keyboard and mouse to having hands-on tactile control with a DJ controller, the ION DJ2Go may be a good first buy.
The ION (or the Numark version) DJ2Go doesn’t include a built-in audio interface (sound card) so for headphone cueing DEX 3 and RED Mobile 3 users will want to invest in a simple 2 channel USB or Firewire Audio Interface. The Numark DJ I/O-2 would be a good fit for this simple bit of kit.
The ION DJ2Go is selling for around $99 on Amazon and some other online retailers, and the Numark DJ2Go version is available at various online DJ equipment retailers.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Unzip the Map (js file) To: C: (Windows) or App Folder for DEX 3 (MAC) – Program Files (x86) -> PCDJ -> DEX3 -> CONTROLLERS. REPLACE THE EXISTING Numark DJ2GO SCRIPT WITH THE NEW ONE!
