EDM News: Pioneer Announces WeGO2- An Entry Level DJ Controller Liberating DJs From The Mouse Or Touchscreen

The WeGO2 puts the fun into learning to mix, liberating DJs from the computer mouse or the touchscreen to give a more realistic experience. Dedicated buttons and dials give DJs intuitive control of scratching, and triggering samples, effects and loops.

DJs simply use the provided Lightning USB cable to connect the WeGO2 to an iPhone/iPod touch/iPad running djay 2 by Algoriddim, and use its ergonomic controls to mix and mash up tracks straight from iTunes. Or they can connect to a PC/Mac and use the included Virtual DJ LE software, or another software package of their choice.

The new device retains popular functions from the original “DDJ-WeGO” controller, including the “PULSE CONTROL” feature that produces DJ performances with multi-colored LED lights built into the JOG dial and the “JOG FX” feature, with which users can combine multiple effects and control these simultaneously with the JOG dial. These functions enable individualistic performances by mixing diverse sound arrangements with various colors.

The light and compact WeGO2 now has a grip to make transporting the console and setting it up even easier. Plus the grip can also be used as a sturdy iPhone/iPod touch/iPad/ stand, putting the screen in constant view during a set.
