Re: tracks playing at the wrong pitch and speed
This sounds like a difference in the sampling frequency. Music recorded at 48Khz must be played back at that frequency or there will be a significant difference in speed and pitch during playback at 44.1Khz. I first noticed this when it occurred to me when recording on digital audio tape. Ipods and minidiscs and mp3 recorders can record at high sampling frequencies like 48K. Cds are all recorded at the standard 44.1K sampling frequency. Check the source of your recordings and it should follow a pattern that leads to your current results.
I do not have enough information on how your music was transferred to tell you more at this time, but I am very confident that differences in sampling frequencies of your source material are causing the pitch differences you are hearing. Without knowing exactly the sampling frequencies of each piece of equipment you used to record these songs it will be next to impossible to give you a very specific solution, so I hope the info. I have shared helps you to figure it out. Best regards and good luck! Michael Mittelsdorf

you have to replace the Pitch fader, which is causing this .It requires taking apart the IDJ2 and desoldering it from its board. You have to be exprienced with a soldering iron. The spare part is not too pricy itself, so maybe swapping out 2 of these faders at a time and also replacing worn out switches as a maintenance step.
the ipod itunes programs are the only one who recognize that device, that is why you cant it in your computer.. but if you see it... its your own risk to open it but if you copy some songs or video it will not play...
Is the ipod charged? I have had the same issue, because the mixer charges as it plays i have had to wait a few minutes and tryed again. Hope this helps I use a thirty gig as well as a nano for a back-up
Some things you have to do yourself... It only takes some work to get it right.
For using ipods or harddrives/USB sticks with the IDj2, your best off with creating Numark libraries. This makes the IDj2 quicker when searching/loading tracks.
This can be done on your Mac or PC with librarian 1.50/IDJ2 1.09(a)firmware combination. If you havent updated your IDJ2 yet, do so. It's the most recent verion, and fixes most problems... Files can be found on www.numark.com/idj2. Look around in this page. There is also explained how to update with a FAT formatted USB stick.
If you have created a library before, Itunes won't update this library, cause it's made by Numark. Itunes and Numark use both a different database. If you run Librarian, it will still see the Ipod playlists, and add them accordingly in your Numark database, and can be recalled in the IDJ2. If you have created libraries with Librarian 1.33 or on the IDJ2 with firmware before 1.09. You have to remove the whole libary, and recreate one with Librarian 1.50. Mostly there is a directory on the device called " .library ". You can throw this away, and recreate a new library.
if you have a PC, you're better of preparing a library for your
USB/IPOD devices with Librarian 1.50, but only if you are running
1.09(a) firmware on the IDJ2. This is the preferred and quicker way...
Do an upgrade if this is not done yet. Go to
for downloading the files.
When rerunning the librarian(for instance when adding tracks), choose
normal mode. It will add every playable track. (you could try this out
on an USB stick with some tracks on it for testing purposes).
If this doesn't work, you could have a corrupt library, and have to
rebuild(choose advanced in Librarian). Also, when you have created with
earlier versions of IDJ2 firmware, then you have to rebuild the whole
Numark stated on their forums, when connecting a device, to never
choose update, but load instead. It can use mp3/wav/non secured aac
files, but not wma..
If there are any other questions, you can also send an e-mail to numark. They are reasonably quick with their responses.
