    hmmm having the djwego2 already I dont see really the point of upgrading to this. I only bought this for the occasional party where i can take my ipad and djay2.

    I think that looks pretty good. Having made music on computers for 23 years and having some pretty advanced Live controller assignments and Traktor controllers I think that the Wego looks ideal for those little parties where you you won’t be beat-matching all the time. Now and then and you wanna take something thats more than you iPod but not your proper rig. It looks ideal, . . . its those parties where you wanna play things for the crowd not for massaging your own ego in your ‘chosen genre’ yeah. That little bit of beat-matching and effects plus easy cue control looks ideal for that. Pretty good . . . and I had no idea you could play from Spotify. Fantastic!

    this device isn’t really intended for most of the people who hang out at DJTT or sites like it. if you click over to the Pioneer site and read what they are saying (as well as the article itself) this is for BEGINNER DJs.

    if you look at the thing it has all of the basic controls plus some nice extras and it ships perfectly mated to dJay and a few other DJ software packages. @blah blah — you are right, this is for 16 year old wanna-be-a-DJs and other beginner types.

    had this device been available when i started, i would have bought it. the virtually unexplained nonsense of mapping a controller was way too much for somebody trying to learn Traktor Duo the night before a gig! If it hadn’t been for a TSI file i found on DJTT that mapped that Hercules RMX to Traktor, well, the gig would have gone sour.

    @Ean Golden — without what you have done to help struggling digital DJs i would still be working to understand a TSI file. i really believe i owe you a huge thank you for all you and your team have done…

    but @Sambo is really onto something as well. just how much crap do we need to lug around to rock a dance floor? it seems clear that you can do quite a bit with a WeGo3. a WeGo3 is just a tad bigger than an iPad. i know of several guys playing bars around home here using dJay on their laptops (…and the crowd doesn’t really care as the music is good…). you can put that thing and an iPad into a fairly small and light bag. toss in a couple of cables and you can rockin’ out anywhere you can plug into a PA or home stereo. …or break it out pretty much anywhere to practice.

    Can it run without the AC adaptor on USB bus power from a laptop and/or via iOS power?

    • Dennis Parrott

      it certainly would not run on iOS power. Apple doesn’t present much power at the 30 pin or Lightning connector for use by a connected device. it barely runs flash drives so i don’t believe there would be enough current to power this device — it has a lot of blinky lights and those eat power big time.

      whether it would run off of USB power from a laptop is another question. that has been a pretty standard feature of MIDI controllers since there were such things. i guess i would expect that it should. i clicked over to the support information page and there is a menu pick for a manual but, alas, there is no manual to be had (yet).

      • LongTimeLurker1stTimePoster

        Thanks for the input, yeah I know asking for iOS is a lot. On an iPad 2 I can get an Akai LPK25 to work but the LPD8 takes too much juice – frustrating but is what it is. The sound is good though, and I have done quite a few 40-70 minute DJ sets using the iPad 2 and djay 1/2 over the years, and after getting them over to the main rig to lightly EQ, they’re just fine I have to say, so making things really portable just seems cool. I agree the laptop power probably is sufficient.

        I’ve been looking to pick up a Numark iDJ Live 1 or 2 sometime in the near future. There are a couple for sale locally under $50 for either. They seem to run on iOS power. Fewer features, but I really don’t need a lot to simply enjoy putting tracks together and the sound going.

  • Marco Hooghuis

    I wonder, what’s the point in these things? They’re not cheap, don’t have a lot of features and the layout is pretty bad.

    • blah blah

      the point? 16 year old kid wants to dj…. sees big guys use pioneer…. he only has a 300 budget… done deal

    • Sambo

      The point? I can rock up to a club with this, my iPhone 5C and my Spotify account and absolutely smash the dancefloor, that’s the point! Guerilla gigs!

      • Marco Hooghuis

        You can do the same for much, much, much less than this. Take the Numark idj live for example, it’s almost a third of the price! So again, I ask: why buy this overpriced POS?

        • flyer

          lol idj live is a little plastic toy, here you really can talk about POS!

  • spintechdj

    I don’t absolutely hate this…marked improvements from the last iteration; allow user saved samples in addition to the stock samples. I approve Pioneer continuing to target budding DJs. I could plop down $300 street just so I can run and gun with my iPad mini. Proprietary Lightening port cable?
