I don't know about MACs but I assume most computers are the same in their general anatomy when it comes to the sound system.
ie. Windows has a digital recording system built into the OS that allows you to plug an 1/8" patch cable into the "input" of the soundcard of the computer. Years ago I recorded several things from karaoke songs I sang to pre-recorded song I mixed from my DJ console. The volumes needed to tweeked to avoid sound distortion but it sounded so good I've used my recordings at gigs.

My Numark iDJ2 won't update it's firmware!


I've tried it with a PC, I've tried it with a Mac, I've tried it with two different memory drives, and nothing will get it to update. Numark has a quality problem they need to address soon.

Uploading problem


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.

Good luck and happy DJ-ing.

regards,
Jack.

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

Idj2 stutter start button


I have this same problem. I haven't found a solution anywhere, but a great workaround is using the Fader Start function - basically the moment the fader is slid into the main mix, the deck which you enable will start to play the tune. Hit the mode button, then select control, and turn on Fader start. It's actually really cool and allows you to do some ballsy mixes :) The deck will pause (or cue depending on the setting) once you bring it back.

I dj 2 will not down load t tunes purchased song


Hi,
Itunes downloaded songs can be AAC protected songs. These cannot be played on your IDJ2.
Luckilly Apple can offer a service(not free) for making your songs non protected.
