Cue Setup with iOS Device (Algoriddim djay 2)

It is very easy to cue with the iDJ Live II and the included Algoriddim djay for Mac app.  

Note: iPad is capable of mono cue-ing only.

  1. Connect the iDJ Live II to your iPad.
    • Connect iDJ Live II's mini-USB port to the 30-pin or Lightning cable.
    • Then connect the 30-pin or Lightning cable to an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. 

      Important: If your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch does not recognize iDJ Live II as connected, then disconnect the 30-pin or Lightning cable from your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch (not from iDJ Live II) and reconnect it.
       
  2. Install Algorridim djay 2, open the app, and load your music.
    • On your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, go to the app store and download the djay 2 for iPad or djay 2 for iPhone app.
    • Once the app is downloaded, tap it to open it, then load a song into the left and right channels by tapping on the music symbol icon and choosing a song.  Press Play to begin a song.
       
  3. To Cue the next song in your headphones:
    • Connect the included audio splitter cable to the headphone output on the iPad.  
    • Connect one end of the splitter to your speaker output and the other to your headphones.
    • Tap the Tool icon in djay 2 to bring up the settings window.  Turn the Split Output option on.From this window, you can adjust the volume level of the cue mix in your headphones, as well as the balance of the Main Mix and the Cue Mix.  Adjust to your preference!Note: Because the iPad is incapable of sending multiple stereo outputs, while cue-ing, the audio will be in mono only.

In the Preferences window, click on the Devices tab and then set the Pre-Cueing drop-down menu to Split Output.  Press Apply and close the Preferences window.  This will split the stereo channel into 2 separate channels: one for the master output, the other for headphone pre-cueing.
