    Default HEELP! i want to get a dj system but dont have a computer! can i use my ipod?

    i have an ipod and im thinking of using the djay app on ipod with a dj system but i dont want the numark idj live or any cheap thing like that, i want a real system like the hercules dj 4-mx. but will it be able to get enough power from my ipod to work with it? if not is there a power cored to plug into the wall that it comes with so i can dj with it? also i dont just want to mix, i want to beable to add sound effects too and would i be able to record my mixes?? PLEASE HELP

    You could get two turntables Or two cdjs and a mixer... (cdjs are what they use in clubs, and major setups) but there are cheaper options that keep you away from a laptop....


    But question... How do you have an iPod without an accessible computer?

    I doubt it. (but don't quote me on that), but I highly doubt it would work.

    You need something that is iPod compatible, or get a laptop, or just use your desktop for the time being and get a laptop later?

    You can do it with just an iPod and the DJ app, but it'll be tough. You'll need one of these cables.

    Get a decent set of headphones something along the lines of the Sony MDR7506 are pretty good. I really don't know anything about the controllers you can hok an ipod to.
