Pioneer announced today that it’s soon releasing a next generation DDJ-WeGO2 DJ controller for iOS devices. The new version will feature the same multicolour LEDs, pulse control on a set of quality platters, USB power, built-in in and out audio ports, and optimizations and layouts ideal for Virtual DJ software on Mac, and Djay and other apps on iOS. Pioneer is now including a Lightning cable for easily connecting iPhones and iPads, and the DDJ-WeGO2 also features a handle that makes it truly ultra portable.

It’s also made the red, black, and white color schemes on offer cover the entire body of the controller this time around:

The DDJ-WeGO2 will be available in white, black and red to complement the user’s taste, with each color option now covering the entire controller body. The DDJ-WeGO2 colors also match the popular line of HDJ-500 DJ headphones. The controller features multi-color LED backlighting for the Jog wheel and a color-customizable user interface for the included software.
