I hope the $299 is offered again....I would have definitely made the purchase. I have tried the iPad 4 with Algroriddim Djay 2 and the Numark IDJ Live, Numark IDJ Pro, Pioneer Wego2, and Reloop Beatpad......The Beatpad was a good experience..but...decided I did not want to rely on an iPad anymore for software and music..I feared stability issues during a live performance...The features/portability with the Go DJ is what I want...to backup my turntables.. Please bring back the Go DJ Massdrop!
Wish others would jump in on this with me. Lol couldn't pass it up though!
A Numark Mixtrack Pro can be had for about $150, and is a great controller. Algroriddim Djay for iOS, is also a much more affordable alternative. Not sure why anyone would pay $300 for a Monster-branded toy.

Point taken, but I'm assuming most people have a laptop and/or mobile device.

That's most likely true, but those (laptops/tablets) still don't represent what the GODJ is no matter the software used! Imagine a GODJ pluged into a battery operated speaker/speakers and headphones. You're done! You could be at the beach, block party, football game, the park or any other place where an outlet or even a table isn't available! You can mix real sets with samples, a real cross fader, start/pause que buttons, all with one cable for connection, 2 if you have a pair of speakers and your in stereo with no adapters and still have stereo/selectable split que headphones! And if you really wanted to get fancy you could use that laptop/tablet/cellphone to be an external source and run effects on that input as well! Don't forget even a micrpone input with effects! What other device is going to do that out of the box at any price?
Hmm, instead of people joining this massdrop, I see people actually unjoining it... too bad, $299,- would have been a reasonable price for this device, I feel.
Here is a video demonstrating the ease of use and high caliber of functionality one can get with the GO DJ Controller.
Let's check this videos. pretty nice:)
Looks cool.

I have had one for a couple of weeks now and must say I am impressed. I was hesitant at first and very skeptical, but after spending some time with the GO DJ I was hooked. It is easy to use, especially if you are familiar with DJ gear. If functions just like a full-size, run-of-the-mill DJ setup; mixer, tables, fader and all. While the size s a bit intimidating, let's be fair, how much time do we all spend on our smartphones with little, tiny screens?
I guess the point I would like to make is that the Monster GO DJ is a full service DJ piece, with all the functionality and bells&whistles of a regular DJ rig. It lacks nothing but the extra weight and size of a normal set of turntables.
Great news!
We are excited to announce, in working with the vendor, we are able to now offer and even better price on the Monster GO DJ Controller. Please feel free to share the news with your fellow enthusiasts and we look forward to a successful drop.
I started in 1990, but I'm not a vinyl elitist. I've even embraced Traktor and now use it exclusively. Technology evolves, I know, but I can't figure out who would really benefit from this. At $400, it's less expensive than a laptop+Traktor setup, but still kinda spendy for what resembles a toy. I mean no disrespect to you, Mehul, but if I were going to DJ even a casual party important enough for backup, I still couldn't use this. It would be about as professional as DJing from an iPhone. DJ gear is a lot cheaper now than it was years ago, especially factoring inflation, but it still apparently costs more than $400.

Full disclosure: I'm a club DJ and it's all I've ever done. I have traveled some for events, but the majority (or 99% if you like brown numbers) of my experience has been years-long 'residencies' at clubs where decks and mixers are installed and maintained and I know the equipment almost intimately. I bring my timecode, laptop, and a few CDs to put on in the event of a failure. I'm not responsible for the mixer or decks to begin with, but none have failed - but I have used those CDs a few times so I could restart my laptop when it was sluggish. I don't mean to be disagreeable, but in the environments I work in the GO is outside of my imagination to have as backup. I don't DJ parties, but I was supposing that if I did, I wouldn't own a GO to use as a backup - because it's not a solution for my actual experience.

Thanks for sharing your input. I agree that it might not be useful for Club DJ's to use GO-DJ while they work. Although it is an insanely fun product if you just love DJing and enjoy experimenting with music.
Don't let the size fool you. GO-DJ has a lot of functions inside the device. It's almost like a Swiss Army Pocket Knife for DJs.
I think it suits the future generations of producers and DJ's very well because everything is going mobile these days and everyone is always on the go. For someone who wants to get their foot into the door with DJing, I think this is a great first step. At the same time, it's got a lot of advanced tools to keep all experienced DJs occupied and entertained with all the features.
inb4 nobody will buy this because of the branding

I'll respect your opinion but you should know that JD Sound is responsible for creating this product. The Monster branding doesn't hurt at all actually. I'm sorry that Monster has left such an unfavorable impression on you but I surely hope you will renew your thoughts starting with GO-DJ. Give us a chance! You won't be disappointed!

I never claimed it was *my* opinion, per se, just my interpretation of what others feel, and why the drop keeps failing despite this being an apparent quality product.
I love that this thing is getting updates to expand formats but the touchscreens for accuracy is abysmal. I know this is not the same category my current portable system the Teenage Engineering OP-1 but this item had more potential without those touch screens.
The price seems really good for this drop for what you get nevertheless.

The OP-1 and GO-DJ are two entirely different products. I have both and they do two completely different things. OP-1 is an awesome synthesizer but GO-DJ is far more superior for playing music, mixing, and recording. But when you connect them together, it's AMAZING!!!!
I head a coat hanger works just as well as a Monster DJ Controller.

He's referring to the infamous "Monster Cable vs. Coat Hanger" tests. Monster does have a lot of haters, but it's neither unfounded nor limited to Beats. http://gizmodo.com/363154/audiophile-deathmatch-monster-cables-vs-a-coat-hanger

Thank you!
Hi everyone, this is a fantastic portable DJ controller. Don't be fooled by the small size of this device - it comes fully equipped with sample pads, 16 step sequencer, multiple inputs / outputs, recording capability and much more.
If you are going to DJ a casual party and don't want to take your laptop with you then this is a great option. It's also great to bring along as a back up device in case you have any issues with your main controller or other hardware.
Here is a review / walk through that gives more detailed info on this device:

This is our first drop with Monster so let us know if you have any feedback or suggestions! Thanks again for all the support!

Hi Mehul,
That video is actually quite old and does not reflect the most current version. It used to be called PDJ back in 2013 but then JD Sound Partnered with Monster Cable and turned it into GO-DJ. GO-DJ has a lot more updated features than the review on PDJ suggests. A lot of of the software has improved on GO-DJ. I would suggest watching this video:
