Not to be out done by a brace of new kit flooding the DJ market, Pioneer have added to their entry level controller range with the DDJ-WeGO2. The WeGO2 has all the features of the original WeGO but now allows for DJs to plug their iOS devices (iPhone/iPod touch/iPad) and DJ directly from the controller. As with the original WeGo controller, the platform is flexible to allow for use with all DJ software, although it comes bundled with Virtual DJ.
The WeGo2 has all the dedicated buttons and dials for intuitive scratching and triggering samples, effects and loops and also includes Pulse Control lights, Beat Sync, pre-loaded samples, amazing sound effects and loops, and even four-deck mixing as found on the original WeGO.
As with its predecessor we suspect the DDJ-WeGO2 will be perfect for entry-level DJs or mobile jocks who use iOS devices as their mixing weapon of choice.
It comes in three colour choices and with switchable LEDs, creating a fully customisable controller.
There are no pricing details as yet, but we expect more info at next month's BPM show.
