New Pioneer DJ controller hooks into your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch for some mobile mixing

If you're a budding DJ, Pioneer's latest entry-level offering may be of interest, particularly the news that it will connect to your iPhone 5 and iPad 4 with the bundled Lightning cable. The DDJ-WeGO2 Compact DJ Controller also comes with a handle that doubles as a stand for your device, and it will hook into Algoriddim's fantastic djay 2 app for iOS for truly mobile mixing.

Of course, it isn't limited to your iOS devices, the WeGO2 comes bundled with Pioneers own Virtual DJ LE software for Mac and Windows, or you can download and use djay LE also from Algoriddim on your Mac. Hardware wise the WeGO2 is pretty compact, is powered by USB either through your computer or from an external battery pack, and has onboard audio for that all important monitoring experience. There's also a bunch of visual prompts from the onboard LEDs to help out beginners, and much more besides.

I'm no DJ, not in any way, but this looks like a pretty nice product from Pioneer. Availability is slated for this October, and retail price is $429 in either red, black or white. If you know more about this type of equipment, take a look, and drop us your thoughts in the comments below!
