With a name like DJ2Go, it's not hard to figure out that this USB DJ controller was built to be portable. DJs love to perform but it isn't always easy to set something up on a moment's notice. Most DJ software controllers are designed to save DJs from having to lug around crates of vinyl or CDs. Just grab your laptop loaded with your music library, bring your controller and you're off to the gig. However, even the smallest DJ controllers range from being luggable to requiring their own set of wheels. Numark has changed all that with DJ2GO. Now DJs can throw their entire rig into a backpack and have room to spare.
DJ2GO is a portable, affordable, and highly capable DJ controller that allows you to control your favorite DJ software with a tactile feel that can't be matched using a computer mouse and keyboard. DJ2GO weighs just 13 oz. but 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 Headphone gain controls. In addition, you can load and assign tracks to either of the two included deck control sections without ever touching a mouse. Sync and headphone buttons allow you to instantly sync two tracks and monitor either deck section.
Included with DJ2GO is 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. Because DJ2GO is MIDI-compliant, it can be used easily with virtually any DJ software by simply re-mapping the controls in the applicable application. You need only to connect the included USB cable to their Mac or PC and install the software to be up and running.

this is very nice device i used it for house parties and i just used it 2/6/13 for a big gig at First Avenue in Minneapolis MN and it held it own, i got it for a back up and quick set up for small event,s i use it also to teach other how to mix, i give it 4 stars
The device works. There is barely anything wrong with the device, it's just the lack of functions that make it a waste of $. This was my "first" controller before upgrading to a Numark Mixtrack Pro. Honestly, if you're looking to get into DJing in the fashion of making mixes, and whatnot, this device won't help you. There are no EQ controls, not effects, the jog wheels are useless, and switch between scratch and pitch bend randomly, plus you'll need an audio card to use this device with headphones or external speakers. The device CAN be mapped to other software, though the software included works fine for the device. This device really did nothing for me, and unless you're a wedding DJ who just plays a song from start to finish, this controller really won't benefit you. I love Numark, they have amazing products that are reasonably priced. If you're trying to get into DJing, try looking at the Mixtrack Pro. It's ideal for the beginner DJ.
For the price, it is a very nice little tool to have but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for and this is no exception; This controller does have it's downside. For starters, the skin that comes with it does not allow for the user to chose between cue or mix monitoring with headphones. The user will have to select another skin if they want to do that. Secondly, the software that is included, Virtual DJ LE, does not allow the user to create playlists or select a different skin once the 20-day PRO trial version is over. The user can still use it, however, they will have to purchase, at mimimum, the Virtual DJ Pro version ($99) if they still want to select skins and/or create playlists among other features. In other words, Virtual DJ LE is a bare bones application once the 20-day PRO trial version is done. Other than that, this is a good little tool to have for those gigs when all you are doing is bringing you laptop and plugging it in to an external system. I am planning to purchase the Virtual DJ PRO version anyway but others might feel differently.
this thing is totally awesome, its well built it works flawlessly with virtual dj pro 7.0.4 and the fact that it's small enough to fit in the bag with your laptop is a huge advantage, I only wish it had buttons for the loop functions on virtual dj. of course for the price i wasn't expecting it to be as nice as my denon dn-S3700's but it will definitely do in a clinch. thumbs up to numark on this one
