Pioneer DJ today introduced the DJC-WeCAi controller cable

April 5, 2013 by Mobile Beat

Pioneer  DJ  today  introduced  the DJC-WeCAi controller cable to enable an iPad  device  to  be  used  with  its  line  of  DDJ-WeGO  and  DDJ-ERGO DJ controllers1.   The  DJC-WeCAi  cable  connection transforms an iPad device loaded   with   Algoriddim  Inc.’s  “djay®  for  iPad”  app  or  “vjay  for iPad”  (available  for  purchase  in the App Store) into a music source and control window for the DDJ-WeGO or DDJ-ERGO.

DJC-WeCAi_WeGO_300dpi 5inWith  the “djay for iPad” app and use of the special cable, the DDJ-WeGO or DDJ-ERGO  can  be used for playback of music from an iPad’s iTunes library, offering  scratching  and  mixing  operations  as well as diverse functions including  HOT  CUE,  sampler, and effects2.  With the “vjay for iPad” app, the controllers can perform scratching and visual mixes using videos, music and  camera  roll  images stored in an iPad3, including the “PULSE CONTROL” function2 for performances using images and lights.

The  DJC-WeCAi  cable extends up to 2.6 feet from an iPad (USB A connector) device  to  a  Pioneer controller (USB B connector) with a 5.9 feet Y-cable (USB  A, color coated red to easily identify) for use with a standard power adaptor  (not  included)  or USB mobile battery (not included)4.  The cable charges  a connected iPad while providing power for a connected DDJ-WeGO or DDJ-ERGO  controller.   Connection to iPad requires Apple Camera Connection kit or Lightning to USB Camera Adapter (not included).

The  DJC-WeCAi  will  be  available in May with a suggested retail price of $35.00.
