Looks like the big man will get his wish, with the Numark Numark iDJ2 just been released in Australasia.
I couldn't be arsed typing out how it works. Here's the cut-n-paste version off the Numark site.
The Numark iDJ2 is the only iPod mixing console that provides full control of your music with real-time scratching (via two jog wheels), a stunning color screen and Numark's exclusive crate management. Keylock insures that DJs can easily change tempo without affecting pitch. The iDJ2 features a fresh and innovative new iPod docking system that allows users to play and mix two songs simultaneously from a single iPod without the need of a computer. Users can also hook up multiple mass storage devices including additional iPods, thumb drives, and external USB hard drives through rear panel USB ports. In addition to USB connectivity, the iDJ2 comes complete with line inputs for audio sources including a microphone, CD players and turntables.
Someone needs to get one of these so I can give it a whirl. "Scratching" is such a dubious term in relation to these "new" DJ products.
Doesn't give the "iPod" DJ's(sic) any excuse now does it.
If I have to hear "Dead Air" in a club again, I'm going to go postal.
For some reason it is quite the occurance down here.
