[Video] Pioneer DJ WeCAi Cable Connects ERGO/WeGO to iPad

Pioneer DDJ-ERGO-Limited Controller

Pioneer's popular DDJ-WeGO and DDJ-ERGO controllers are now even more portable, with the release of the WeCAi cable which allows DJs to use the WeGO and ERGO's tactile controls to mix and mash up tracks on their iPads. The WeCAi cable lets DJs connect to Algoriddim's djay app to access music direct from their iTunes library, or get to grips with video mixing using Algorridim's vjay app.

The WeCAi cable will connect to the iPad's Apple Camera Connection kit (sold separately) and an external power supply or wall-socket adapter must be used to power the controller while in use. The iPad is not charged the same time as the controller, so your DJ sets will only last about two hours max. Perhaps they will find a way to power the iPad at the same time in the future, but so far, this is one of the limitations.

The Pioneer DJ WeCAi cable will be available sometime next month. In order to make it all work, the DJ will need an iPad, a WeGO/ERGO, the WeCAi cable, the new VJay software download and the new firmware update for the controller. Check out the full demo and walkthrough video above along with the full press release below and stay tuned as we'll probably get one in the lab to put it through its paces.

4th April 2013: Pioneer’s popular WeGO and ERGO controllers are now even more portable, with the release of the WeCAi cable – allowing DJs to use the WeGO/ERGO’s tactile controls to mix and mash up tracks on their iPads.

The WeCAi cable lets aspiring DJs connect to Algoriddim’s djay app to access music direct from their iTunes library, or get to grips with video mixing using Algorridim’s vjay app.


Intuitive control of Algoriddim’s djay and vjay apps for iPad
DJs simply use the WeCAi cable to connect the WeGO/ERGO to an iPad (1) running Algoriddim’s djay app, and get hands on with mixing, scratching, Hot Cues, loops, samples and effects. Or connect to Algoriddim’s vjay app to enjoy mixing and scratching video, music and pictures stored on the iPad.

USB power supply for WeGO/ERGO
The WeCAi includes a USB connection for supplying power to the WeGO/ERGO via a standard USB power adaptor or a USB mobile battery (2) so DJs can play out even where traditional power sources cannot reach.

Enjoy all the WeGO/ERGO features including Pulse Control
As well as intuitive DJ controls and innovative effects, both the WeGO and ERGO boast Pulse Control lights, which add a visual element to performance by showing when tracks are loaded, which effects are engaged and more (3).
