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 controllers.
DJC-WeCAi cable connection transforms an iPad device loaded with
Algoriddim'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.
With 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 effects. With the "vjay for
iPad" app, the controllers can perform scratching and visual mixes using
videos, music and camera roll images stored in an iPad, including the
"PULSE CONTROL" function 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). 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
