Two Decks, Two Tracks
Mix two music tracks with the DJ Control MP3 e2's controls. It's simple--select the desired tracks through the software using the mixer's browsing buttons (no mouse is required). From there you've got two jog wheels to navigate within tracks, along with EQ for tweaking your sound, pitch control for beat matching, headphone monitoring on/off (for prepping the next track and setting cue points), and a crossfader to cut back and forth between tracks.
Simplied DJing operations
The MP3 e2 boasts several user-friendly automations for the beginners out there (or those who appreciate a little ease of use). Cue points (e.g., where you'd like a track to begin) are suggested by the DJ software in audio file analysis, or you can enter them manually. In addition, you can synchronize two tracks with the push of a button if you can't get it lined up manually using the pitch control.
You also get an automatic looping feature, with the software detecting the beat and automatically looping on the 1-, 2-, or 4-count.
Make Your Mark
Along with the EQ section, you can make your mark on the music with on-board effects and scratch controls. The effect plug-ins include Flanger, Beatgrid, FlippinDouble, and Backspin. Scratch effects include the Baby Scratch (a quick forward scratch/backward scratch combo), Tear Scratch (forward scratch, quick backward scratch, slow backward scratch), Forward-only and Backward-only scratches, and "Pass-Pass" techniques (playing the same track on both decks with various scratch/fade/etc. effects).
MP3s, WMAs, and CDs
The MP3 e2 will play back your digital MP3/WMA files, but it also handles a CD in your PC/laptop's disc drive. Simply load the CD-Audio track in your playlist on a DJ Control MP3 e2 deck, as if it were an audio file, and you can mix it immediately.
The Ultra-Mobile DJ
The DJ Control MP3 e2 is perfect for mobile use, with an included cover for easy transportation. Throw your computer, the DJ Control MP3 e2, a pair of speakers, and some headphones in a bag and hit the party.
