Hercules Debuts Unique Wireless DJ Controller specially designed for iPad® – DJControlWave – at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show

Honoree of a 2014 CES Innovations Award, Hercules DJControlWave’s Bluetooth® connectivity and rechargeable battery gives DJs complete freedom to mix and rock parties anywhere.

Las Vegas, January 7, 2014 - Hercules, a worldwide leader in audio and digital DJing, is proud to unveil the first wireless DJ controllers custom-designed for iPad® at CES Las Vegas.

Inspired by its sleek, wave-shaped design, the new controller is named the Hercules DJControlWave. This truly unique and innovative concept has also been recognized as an honoree of the highly coveted CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award 2014.

With its iPad® control via Bluetooth® wireless technology, total mobility thanks to its built-in rechargeable battery, and its futuristic design, the Hercules DJControlWave is the undisputed "new wave" DJ controller.

Complete mixing freedom
There’s no need for any kind of cable between the controller and the iPad®: the Bluetooth® connection is instant and the control is totally wireless. When mixing at a party, the DJ is even free to take the iPad® onto the dance floor, away from the controller, without ever losing control of the mix! The Hercules DJControlWave’s range is up to 33 feet (10 meters).

The controller’s built-in rechargeable battery is also a huge plus in terms of freedom of movement: say goodbye to the days when a DJ always had to keep the controller connected to a power source. Battery life even allows for a whole night of non-stop mixing (up to 8 hours)!

DJs can either connect speakers to the iPad® via a wired connection or wirelessly if using a Bluetooth® speaker, making it possible to mix without any cables at all for the ultimate in DJing freedom!

The "new wave" DJ design: stylized and futuristic
Extremely lightweight and showcasing an elegant look, the innovative design of the Hercules DJControlWave ripples like a wave, and is perfectly crafted to support the DJ’s iPad®. The iPad®’s angle of support can be adjusted in order to adapt to different DJing positions and styles. All controls are intuitive and ergonomic, including the two jog wheels, two pitch sliders, buttons for effects, samples and cue points, and rotary encoders for EQ settings.

Even the controller’s backlighting, which adds to its futuristic look, has been designed to be both attractive and helpful: it guides the DJ, even in low-light conditions.

DJUCEDTM DJW: the free, custom control app
The DJUCEDTM DJW app has been specially designed for the Hercules DJControlWave, and was developed to function in perfect harmony with the controller (the app is available for free on the App Store). The app is incredibly simple both to learn and to use to create great mixes, even for those just starting out as DJs.

Multi-talented
Although this new controller has been designed for the iPad® (its "Made for iPad" certification is pending), it is also compatible with both Mac® and PC, via a USB connection and the included DJUCEDTM 40° software.

The Hercules DJControlWave also comes bundled with a super-convenient splitter cable - allowing users to connect both speakers and headphones to privately preview upcoming tracks.

The Hercules DJControlWave will be available from spring 2014, at a suggested retail price of $299.99.

To check it out, come visit Hercules at CES Las Vegas, the Venetian Hotel, Veronese 2504 meeting room, from January 7 through 10, 2014.
