Mix, scratch and perform with your iPod.


You can scratch and locate specific points within the track using iDJ2’s large wheels. Create and integrate seamless loops in seconds. iDJ2 has Fader Start, which enables iDJ2 to automatically start playback when you move the crossfader. Numark’s advanced Keylock feature enables you to shift the track’s tempo while maintaining pitch. And exclusive Beatkeeper™ technology empowers you to beat-match visually, by simply lining up the lights so you spend less time working in headphones


iDJ2 has a performance-ready, two-channel mixer. Each channel has three-band EQs, gain control, pitch and line faders, level metering, loop controls, a tap tempo button, and standard transport and cue controls. A rugged, smooth crossfader with adjustable slope completes iDJ2’s mixer so you can mix between sources.

In addition to its iPod dock, iDJ2 has two sets of analog phono/line-switchable inputs with grounds so you can connect CD players, turntables, drum machines, and other analog music sources. It also has two USB ports for connecting digital devices and mixing them in.

iDJ2 has a complete cueing section with both 1/8” and 1/4” stereo jacks, independent cue level, tone, and cue-assign controls. iDJ2 also has a full-featured output section with balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA Master outputs and RCA Record outputs for recording your performance.


Numark’s Crate system is an electronic approach to managing setlists and the music library designed around the way you work with your vinyl or CDs. You can prepare setlists ahead of time, build them as your performance unfolds, or combine the two approaches. You just select a track in your library and load it into the virtual crate for either Deck A or Deck B. Quickly text-search with iDJ2’s click knob using artist, track or album name. For even faster track access, you can plug in an optional USB keyboard. 

The Crate system is easy to view in any lighting conditions thanks to its color LCD screen. The screen also enables you to use Track Profile view for easy visual detection of energy changes in tracks. You’ll be able to locate cue points without headphones!


You can perform with digital music files stored on iPods, USB hard drives and thumb drives thanks to iDJ2’s dock and two USB inputs.  You can even play two tracks from the same iPod at the same time.

You can work with a wide range of file types including stereo and mono MP3s, WAVs, AACs, and more. You can mix in AAC podcasts and even connect and play from discs in external USB CD and DVD drives. iDJ2 even supports music on data DVDs and multi-session CDs. You can rip audio-CD tracks to a writable wav library, edit the text tags on tracks and albums ripped from CD and copy tracks from one drive to another. The possibilities are virtually limitless!

iDJ2 is the powerful, professional solution for performing with the music on your iPod.

  • How do I disable DEMO MODE on my iDJ2?
    • Demo mode, designed to help introduce you to using the iDJ2, is enabled by default. It is It will automatically begin after two minutes if you do not touch the controls. Once you are done with Demo Mode, we recommend that you deactivate it to avoid unintentional activation during a gig.

      To deactivate Demo Mode, follow these steps:

      1. Press UTILITY.
      2. Press > at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
      3. Press Demo (under the screen).
      4. Rotate the Push Select knob counter clockwise to change the setting for Start Demonstration to Never.

      To return to Demo Mode later, you can follow these same steps, selecting an option other than Never for the Start Demonstration setting.
  • What is an ID3 tag?
    • An ID3 tag allows metadata such as title, artist, album, track number, and more to be contained in an MP3 file. Note that the iDJ2 does not alter these tags in any way, but rather uses the metadata to help create a library for fast searching and browsing.
  • What file formats and file systems does the iDJ2 support?
    • File Formats: MP3, WAV, AAC (m4a non-DRM) File Systems: FAT & FAT32, HFS+, NTFS (Limited Support)
  • How do I make sure all of my songs are recognized by the iDJ2
    • The first step is to make sure your files are properly tagged with the necessary ID3 information. Then create a library using the iDJ2 or the corresponding Librarian software version.

      Important note: If using the newest firmware 1.09a, the redesigned ultra fast text Search feature is only available for libraries built using the Librarian software (version 1.50). All other browse features are still available for both iDJ2 and software built libraries.
  • Should I have all my songs in one folder on my FAT-formatted drive?
    • This is very inefficient under FAT-formatting when dealing with many files. We recommend splitting the tracks into no more than 500 per folder. Similarly, if your files are divided into albums, it
  • Why should my drive be formatted to FAT or HFS+?
    • These formats allow data to be written back to the drives from the iDJ2. In this way the unit can save playlists and crate information as well as create libraries from the unit. The unit will still work with NTFS drives, however, it
  • Why is my bus-powered hard drive not being recognized by my iDJ2?
    • In general, we do not recommend using bus-power drives (no external power supply) since they often require more power than one USB port can supply. If your bus-powered drive is not being seen by your iDJ2, try using it with a power USB hub. This will ensure that the drive spins properly throughout the session. (Some bus-powered drives are less power hungry and do not need the extra juice. Always check you hardware before heading out to the big gig)
  • Why is my powered hard drive not being recognized by my iDJ2?
    • Be patient as some hard drives take longer to show up than others. Also, if the drive
  • Will the iDJ2 support WMA?
    • As the WMA format is not sample accurate, we have no plans to support it at this time.
  • Is the BPM calculation tied to looping?
    • No, the BPM counter is a standalone process and does not affect looping.
  • Does Profile creation also calculate BPM?
    • The newest Librarian version 1.50 (for use with firmware 1.09) includes an option to analyze track BPM
  • Can I use the iDJ2 without the Librarian software?
    • Yes, however some of the nice features offered by using Librarian are not available without it:
      • Creating a database for searching is much faster with Librarian than without
      • Librarian can also pre-build Seek tables making loading tracks to a deck almost instant. Otherwise, the iDJ2 must process the whole track first in order to have accurate pitch.
      • The use of NTFS (windows formatted) drives does not allow for database creation on the iDJ2, so a library can
    • Why should I create seek tables on the Librarian?
      • Creating seek tables speeds the loading of tracks to a deck. The iDJ2 can also do this on FAT and HFS+ formatted drives. The first time you load a track a table will be created and future loads will have it already saved.
    • How do I improve track loading speed?
      • If you have not done so, you should build seek tables using the Librarian software.
    • What advantage is there to creating profiles in Librarian?
      • Creating a visual profile of the track allows you to find track events (volume changes, breaks, etc) and jump to them quickly within the profile view. Note: Creating profiles can only be done using Librarian.
    • How do I send files to a playlist?
      • Highlight the file you wish to send to the playlist and press the soft key with the arrow, located below the display. You should now see a playlist soft key. Press the playlist soft key and then select which playlist you would like the file to go to.
