Numark Redphone: The one-sided headphone designed to set DJs free

By - January 28, 2013 2 Pictures
If you've ever seen a professional DJ at work, you've probably seen them holding a pair of headphones to one ear to monitor the audio and cue up tracks. That's part of the reason professional headphones can swivel one cup outward, but it's not the most comfortable way to quickly check on the music. Numark may have a solution to this with the Redphone, a professional DJ stick that has one headphone mounted on a cushioned, ergonomic handle. Read More

DJ's around the world were dismayed a couple years ago when Panasonic announced it was discontinuing its Technics line of turntables, which had become the brand of choice among many professionals since the SL-1200 turntable was released in 1972.

New XDJ-AERO system offers DJs cable-free mobile device integration

By - August 12, 2012 4 Pictures
The term disc-jockey is thought to have first been coined in the mid-1930s to introduce a radio show host who played recorded (rather than live) music. Although 12-inch platters of grooved black goodness remain popular with Club and Party DJs, it's rare to find a radio professional who hasn't abandoned the format in favor of digital music. Mix-masters who have gone digital can also groove on the move thanks to powerful apps for smartphones and tablets like IK Multimedia's DJ Rig, but physical connectivity is still needed when adding device-based audio tracks to the set. Pioneer's Professional Sound and Visual Division has rallied to the cause with what's claimed to be the industry's first Wi-Fi DJ system capable of wireless playback from portable devices ... the XDJ-AERO.

iRig MIX compact mobile mixer for the mobile DJ

By - January 23, 2012 21 Pictures
Apps that transform an iOS device into a portable DJ system (such as Algoriddim's djay app) have been around for a good while now, but the restricted screen space on small devices can lead to somewhat limited mixing functionality. Budding party disc jockeys can get more control from physical deck emulators like Numark's iDJ Live, but those with an appetite for real-time mixing of music stored on more than one device have now been catered for with the upcoming release of the iRig MIX from IK Multimedia. This compact mobile mixer can auto match the tempo from any type of audio source with the tunes on a connected iOS device, features an extra input for an instrument or microphone, and comes with four free music apps.
