Setup for DJing with time-code vinyl discs

Veröffentlicht in Tech Tips

DJing with time-code vinyl requires
- a DJ software capable of time-code DJing as VirtualDJ Pro, Cross, and 2 time-code vinyl discs supported by the DJ software
- 2 DJ turntables,
- an DJ controller whose audio interface has 2 stereo inputs supporting phono level if the DJ turntables have a phono output level, for example a Hercules DJ Console Rmx2, 4-Mx, Rmx, Mk4 or Mk2.

Then you have 2 possible installations:
- Either you use no analogue mixer: you then use the Hercules DJ Console mixer controls
- Or you use an analogue mixer: you then use the mixer instead of the central controls of Hercules DJ Console.

A) With no analogue mixer
- Connect the outputs of the turntables to Hercules DJConsole Rmx2 :
  - the turntable located on left on inputs 1-2
  - the turntable located on right on inputs 3-4
  - set the inputs on phono level if your turntables output is in phono level,
  - activates your inputs in your DJConsole Rmx2 control panel,
- Connect the headphones on DJConsole Rmx2 headphones output plug, on front panel or on top panel,
- Connect your speakers on DJ Console Rmx2 outputs 1-2 (dual XLR or dual RCA)
- Play your time-code vinyl discs on your 2 turntables
- Run your DJ software, and calibrate your inputs in time code vinyl mode
- your turntable on left side now controls the left virtual deck, your turntable on the right side now controls the right-side virtual deck.
The connections are as follows


B) With an analogue mixer
- Connect the outputs of the turntables to Hercules DJConsole Rmx2 :
  - the turntable located on left on inputs 1-2
  - the turntable located on right on inputs 3-4
  - set the inputs on phono level if your turntables output is in phono level,
  - activates your inputs in your DJConsole Rmx2 control panel,
- Connect the output 1-2 of your DJConsole Rmx2 to the input 1-2 of the analogue mixer,
- Connect the output 3-4 of your DJConsole Rmx2 to the input 3-4 on the analogue mixer,
- Connect the headphones on the mixer headphones output plug,
- Connect your speakers on the mixer master outputs
- Play your time-code vinyl discs on your 2 turntables
- Run your DJ software, and calibrate your inputs in time code vinyl mode
- your turntable on left side now controls the left virtual deck, your turntable on the right side now controls the right-side virtual deck.
The connections are as follows

Hercules announces new DJConsole RMX 2 and World Tour event!

Veröffentlicht in DJConsole RMX2

The wait is over: Hercules is proud to disclose all the details about the new
DJConsole RMX 2!


Available starting mid-August 2012, the Hercules DJConsole RMX 2 features:
  • High-resolution 96 kHz/24 bit audio interface for Windows® (ASIO) and Mac® (Core Audio)
  • Pressure-sensitive jog wheels for scratching
  • 2 sets of 4 backlit velocity sensitive pads enable DJs to control loops, effects, samples and cue points; DJs can use the pads to trigger instant controls or, by varying their velocity, can control the sound amplitude.
  • The rotary encoder located in each set of 4 pads can be used to modulate the last control triggered on a pad after a hit.
  • 5 faders and 10 rotary potentiometers in 14-bit MIDI mode offer extreme precision for mixing. The cross-fader can be replaced with a Mini-Innofader® control.
  • Transport buttons featuring a supple rubber cap and a short-travel tact switch with a haptic feedback

    The DJConsole RMX 2 also features a comprehensive set of audio outputs and inputs:
  • 2 balanced XLR outputs suited to PA amplifiers, long cable lengths (balanced outputs help reduce audio interferences) and studio recording work
  • 2 RCA outputs for monitoring mixes or connecting hi-fi systems
  • 2 stereo connectors (6.35 mm) for headphones
  • 4 RCA inputs for mixing 2 external stereo sources, with 2 Line/Phono switches
  • 1 balanced microphone input (XLR/Jack combo), ideal for talkover applications, suited to both balanced high-end microphones and non-balanced consumer microphones.

    The Hercules DJConsole RMX2 will be supplied with two DJing software apps: DJUCED™ 40° and VirtualDJ® 8 LE.

    Availability: starting mid-August 2012, at a suggested retail price of $299.99 / €299,99 / £279.99.

    The Hercules DJConsole RMX 2 launch will also involve the World Tour: It’s Your Turn event, which will run from the end of summer until the end of the year, allowing DJs to practice mixing, learn new techniques, enhance skills, participate in DJing contests, and team up with emerging DJing artists to share their unique passion.
