Hercules launches new and innovative DJ solutions to get you started mixing!

Publicado en DJControl Inpulse


Rennes, September 27, 2018

Hercules is driven by its passion for music and its desire to bring DJing to the masses, now more than ever before, and is proud to announce its new range of DJControl Inpulse controllers and the new and improved version of its DJ software, DJUCED®. Specially designed to introduce and teach the art of DJing, Hercules' promise is clear: a new and innovative solution that will simplify the beginner's journey and allow him/her to easily acquire and master DJ skills.

For this launch, Hercules teamed up with emerging artist Stupead and his musical creations:


DJing for all
The mood is set. Hercules is adding a new dimension to learning how to become a DJ by focusing on the importance of training one's ear. The first technique that all professional or aspiring DJs must have mastered is beatmatching. The most important rule of mixing is to match the tempo of two tracks so that they can be played in a seamless sequence without breaking the rhythm. That's why Hercules has developed a unique range of two controllers: the HERCULES DJCONTROL INPULSE 200 and the HERCULES DJCONTROL INPULSE 300 which are equipped with a "beatmatch guide". If it is enabled, the help arrows along the tempo fader and below the jog wheel will light up to guide the budding young DJ through the right steps to take.
  Step 1: Activate beatmatch guide
 Step 2: Follow the arrow on the tempo (pitch) fader to adjust the tempo
 Step 3: Follow the arrow below the jog-wheel to align the beat on the beat of the other track

This valuable aid for getting started in DJing is powered by DJUCED® DJ software, which also includes interactive help and video tutorials from the Hercules DJ Academy to teach you the basics of DJing and improve your skills. It provides direct and intuitive access without ever exiting the software. Convenience guaranteed.
 

Please note that DJUCED® 40° has been renamed DJUCED®, effective from September 27, 2018. The new version of DJUCED® features a more intuitive and comprehensive interface, with an easy-to-use and smoother workflow for beginners and advanced users alike. All controllers that previously ran on DJUCED® 18° will continue to work, but the DJUCED® team recommends that you download the new version of DJUCED® in order to take advantage of the new update. All controllers will now work with DJUCED®. For more information: Djuced.com.

The perfect mix

The second key advantage of the new DJ Hercules solutions is the Intelligent Music Assistant (IMA) that was developed by the R&D team. IMA makes it easy for all DJs to decide on the best song to play, whether they are learning or performing:

The "TRENDING SONGS" feature available exclusively from DJUCED® uses the software's artificial intelligence to reveal tomorrow's hottest songs to help you prepare your new playlists and make sure you mix what's "in".
  
    
ASSISTANT: suggests the best songs from your computer audio library.

ENERGY: allows you to select the perfect atmosphere for the party and infuse it with the kind of energy you want. The energy level is displayed in a color going from blue (a cooler atmosphere) to red (a warm and very danceable atmosphere), which can set the desired mood at any point in the evening.

Hercules DJControl Inpulse 300


The flagship of the new range that includes all the new features described is the DJControl Inpulse 300, the largest controller ever designed by Hercules. It allows you to easily and quickly learn the right moves in order to mix with confidence and ensure a real performance. It’s got everything you need to become a DJ:
  • Large jog wheels (5.9” /15 cm): touch-sensitive to facilitate scratching
  • 16 pads: 8 modes on each deck (Hot Cue, Roll, Slicer, Sampler, Toneplay and others)
  • Slip, Quantize, Loop in and Loop out buttons
  • Tempo/Pitch fader
  • Gain knob, 3-band equalization knobs and a filter knob
  • Volume faders and cross fader
  • VU meter on each deck and a master VU meter
  • Master output for speakers and headphones output

Hercules DJControl Inpulse 200



The DJControl Inpulse 200 is a more compact version than its big brother, with a user-friendly and comfortable layout that makes it the perfect controller for those who are new to DJing.
  • Jog wheel: touch-sensitive for scratch mode
  • 4 pads: 4 modes (Hot Cue, Roll, FX, Sampler)
  • Loop in/Loop out buttons
  • Tempo/Pitch fader
  • Gain knobs, 2-band equalization knobs and filter knob
  • Volume fader and cross fader
  • Master output for speakers and headphone output

A comprehensive ecosystem to get you started
When it comes to mixing, it's important to have the right equipment, even for beginners. That's why Hercules has introduced a new range of active monitoring speakers with the Hercules DJMonitor 32 and Hercules DJMonitor 42. They are powerful, and ensure a near studio experience so that everyone can get off to a good start and enjoy mixing, whether in their bedroom or at their first events.


The DJControl Inpulse 300 and DJControl Inpulse 200 will be available for sale from October 23, 2018.
Recommended retail price – DJControl Inpulse 300 €199.99
Recommended retail price – DJControl Inpulse 200 €99.99

Publicado en DJControl Compact

London, September 10, 2015 - Hercules, the mobile DJ controllers specialist, is innovating in the world of ultra-portable mixing, and is thrilled to unveil its new Hercules DJControl Compact.

With a footprint of just 13.4 x 3.9 inches / 34 x 10 cm, this brand-new controller makes no compromises when it comes to functionalities, and is the most full-featured controller in its category.

Thanks to its compact, elongated shape, Hercules DJControl Compact is very easy to take with you in any bag - including laptop computer bags.

DJControl Compact is the perfect ultra-mobile companion for precision control of DJ software, as it makes no compromises in terms of functionalities: control loops, effects, samples and Cue points using its 2 sets of 4 pads, tweak the sound of tracks using the dual two-band equalizers (one per deck), and control the volume independently on both tracks. You can even do some scratching using the controller’s 2 jog wheels, measuring 3 inches / 7.5 cm in diameter. It’s also the perfect "backup" system in the event of problems with your main controller.

Finally, for all those who love mixing and impromptu parties with friends, DJControl Compact is the must-have practical and effective controller: it lets you quickly take control of essential DJing functions, and play your favorite music all night long! All you need is a computer (PC or Mac®) with a USB port to connect the controller, a pair of speakers connected to the computer, and a music playlist.

DJUCEDTM 18°, the complete mixing software, is included with the controller. Highly intuitive to use, it lets you quickly master all the basic skills that any DJ needs to know - including setting Cue points, syncing two different tracks, creating loops, and saving your mixes.

Hercules DJControl Compact will be available from October 2015, at a suggested retail price of
- €79.99 (tax included),
- USD 69.99 (tax not included),

DJControl Jogvision - First live demo in Frankfurt Musik Messe, from April 15 to 18th, 2015

Publicado en DJControl Jogvision

Frankfurt, April 14, 2015 - Hercules and Serato are pleased to invite you to come and check out the first ever live demo of DJControl Jogvision with Serato DJ Intro.Musikmesse, booth C44, Hall 5, Ebene 1

 

DJControl Jogvision, bundled with Serato DJ Intro and Serato DJ Upgrade Ready, enhances the performances put on by mobile DJs. It is the most portable DJ controller featuring in-jog displays, and the most accessible.

 

The display in the center of each jog wheel simultaneously indicates both the playback speed, and the position in the track. This makes it possible for DJs to look at their computer screen less often, for improved focus on mixing, faster reaction times and better syncing of tracks. DJs can now pay more attention to their music, and to the audience.

 

"With help from members of the DJ community, our goal in designing this controller was to produce the best jog wheels in our product range, whose feel, handling and visual indicators allow for the best performances when mixing and scratching," explains Claude Guillemot, CEO of Guillemot Corporation S.A. "This has also been our motivation in working with Serato, whose software applications are perfect in terms of providing the very best experience with this new controller. Our work together has been remarkable, and we are very happy with the end results. We would like to thank all of Serato’s teams for the excellent quality of our interactions with them."

Sturdy 17.9 x 10.0" / 45.5 x 25.4 cm body
2 sets of 4 progressive pads illuminated with 4 different lighting colors (each color indicates a control type)
AIR Control for contactless control of the low-pass filter effect: the audience sees the DJ’s hand movements, thanks to the AIR Control’s 11.8" / 30 cm range

 

Audio design engineered for performance
24-bit/96 kHz resolution
Dual Master outputs (2 RCA + 1/8" stereo) and Booth output (2 RCA)
Headphones output
1/4" microphone input

Hercules announces DJControl Jogvision on CES Las Vegas, January 6th, 2015

Publicado en DJControl Jogvision

At CES 2015 in Las Vegas, Hercules - a leader in mobile DJ controllers - is thrilled to announce DJControl Jogvision: the 2-deck controller which is set to change the way that DJs perform using a computer. DJControl Jogvision is bundled with the Serato DJ Intro mixing software.

DJControl Jogvision is the first mobile DJ controller to feature a display in the centre of each jog wheel, simultaneously indicating both the playback speed and position in the track at a glance. These displays allow DJs to spend less time looking at a computer screen, for enhanced focus, faster responsiveness and better track syncing - paying more attention to the music and their audience instead.

While a track is playing, the screen on each jog wheel displays 2 easy-to-read concentric rings:

- the larger ring (on the outer edge of the screen) rotates like a motor-driven 33 or 45 rpm turntable, with the rotation speed varying according to the pitch adjustment; and
- the smaller ring (in the centre) indicates the position within the track, represented by way of 16 segments: the number of illuminated segments shows the current position in the track - from 1 segment at the beginning, to 16 segments at the end.

When scratching, the screens guide the DJ by indicating the amount of angular displacement: in the display, the DJ sees the position that his or her hand can return to.

By allowing DJs to intuitively perform based on what they see right at their fingertips, and by offering precision and speed unmatched in this sector of mobile DJing, DJControl Jogvision has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree.

Displays built into the jog wheels, for less time spent staring at a computer screen

Computers have taken their place in the world of DJing in the same way as CD players and vinyl turntables. However, DJs often lament the fact that having to keep on looking at a computer screen is distracting - constantly turning their gaze to see what’s taking place on the computer, instead of checking out the crowd or focusing on their hands while mixing.

Up until now, DJs have been forced to watch a computer screen in order to see at what speed a track is playing, how much time remains before the end of the track, or - when scratching - to easily locate a scratch position.

The dual displays on the DJControl Jogvision’s jog wheels replace all of this information in the DJ’s eyes: the larger ring turns at the track’s playback speed, based on a speed of 33 rpm, while the smaller ring indicates the position of the cursor in the track (1 illuminated segment = start of the track, 16 illuminated segments = end of the track, 8 illuminated segments = middle of the track). And while scratching, the larger ring shows the amount of angular displacement, allowing the DJ to easily locate scratch positions.

Position in the audio track Playback speed based on 33 rpm

Audio design customized for mobile DJing

DJControl Jogvision includes a built-in audio interface with resolution of 24-bit/96 kHz, and features:
- dual master outputs, allowing for the connection of speakers to play music for the audience, plus booth speakers (i.e. monitoring speakers for the DJ),
- a headphone output for previewing tracks,
- a microphone input for talking to the crowd,
- a line input for connecting an external audio source.
In this way, DJControl Jogvision lets DJs enjoy high-quality sound everywhere: in the studio, at concerts, in clubs, while hosting an event or at parties with friends.

Creativity meets elegance

The 2 sets of 4 drum-style pads allow the DJ to trigger audio samples or jump from cue point to cue point, just by tapping on the pads. Variable-colored backlighting shows the DJ which command is assigned to a pad.

The Air Control function is a contactless sensor, which allows the DJ to control effects in real time simply by varying the distance between his or her hand and the sensor: it works just like magic, and lets DJs perform these gestures at a height at which they can be seen by the whole audience.

The first Hercules DJ controller bundled with Serato DJ Intro

DJControl Jogvision comes bundled with Serato DJ Intro: designed for music lovers, Serato DJ Intro allows for 2-deck digital music mixing on a PC or Mac, to which DJControl Jogvision is connected.

To check it out for yourself, please join us at CES Las Vegas, the Venetian Hotel, Veronese 2504 meeting room, from January 6th to 9th, 2015.

    Get Air Born: Hercules Announces the DJ Control AIR

    Publicado en DJ Control Air

    The first DJ controller for computers featuring touch and air control



    New York, November 3, 2011 - Hercules, a leader in mobile digital DJing controllers, is proud to unveil the Hercules DJ Control AIR, the first portable USB DJ controller to feature air control, in addition to touch controls (for PC and Mac®*).

    Hercules DJ Control AIR brings innovations that make mixing intuitive and spectacularly fun - whether you’re an amateur DJ, or just getting started:
    - "Air control", which lets you control the mix from above the surface of the device
    - 8 large pads with velocity sensors
    - A VU meter displaying the beats on the controller

    Taking a great leap forward in the world of mixing, Hercules has created an intuitive ensemble of controls on a unique mobile control surface. These controls have typically been only available to seasoned musicians via multiple controllers, each of which is programmable and/or dedicated to a specific function. The DJ Control AIR also features built-in audio outputs.


    Mixing is in the air

    AIR, or "Adjustment by InfraRed," is a totally new control for computer DJ mixing consoles. The infrared proximity sensor built into the unit lets DJs control their choice of function (volume level, effects, etc.) without touching the controller, simply by moving their outstretched hand above the sensor. It’s like there’s magic in the air when performing a set!
    The AIR control functions regardless of the ambient lighting, allowing users to modulate a software setting quickly and intuitively no matter where they are entertaining.

     

    Let’s scratch and set the mood

    Thanks to its two pressure-detecting jog wheels, DJ Control AIR is perfect for scratching. The jog wheels, each 4" in diameter, detect the pressure exerted by the user’s hand. As a result, the feeling when scratching is as natural as when scratching on a vinyl record or a CD turntable - ideal for learning and perfecting scratch techniques, just like on professional DJ hardware.
    The jog wheels also allow for easy control of the pitch bend function, as well as browsing through playlists.

    8 touchpads with progressive sensors

    In the style of celebrity DJs, Hercules has included 2 sets of 4 progressive pads for users looking to control sounds with a minimum of gestures. These pads transmit a command and its velocity, to control loops, samples or effects. Just tap your finger on a pad to play an effect, for example: the pad lights up when touched, and transmits not only the On/Off command, but a gradual command as well. This lets the user easily vary the attack of a sound sample, or its volume, or modulate the amplitude of an effect.
    The backlit pads, along with the lighting on the other controls, allow for easy viewing even in low-light or dark conditions.

    A VU meter that displays the beats

    DJ Control AIR includes a VU meter displaying beats composed of 2 lines of 4 LEDs. Each line displays the beats in a track, allowing DJs to see at a glance whether the beats are in sync, without having to look at their computer screen. In this way, the DJ can stay focused on the crowd: if the LEDs light up at the same time for both tracks, then the 2 tracks are synchronized - and this, of course, is the basis of all mixing.

    Built-in audio for the mix and for previewing tracks

    Finally, Hercules DJ Control AIR features 2 stereo audio outputs:
    - To play the mix over speakers: one 3.5 mm stereo mini-jack output.
    - To preview tracks on headphones: one 6.35 mm stereo jack output.

    The controller is bundled with a DJing software: a powerful application that lets you mix, sync and manipulate tracks, and add your own personal touch to the music with the sampler and the arranger, while providing an intuitive graphical interface, for use with Mac® and PC.

    Hercules DJ Control AIR is the versatile, innovative digital DJ controller that lets amateur DJs get mixing right away: all you need is a computer, headphones and speakers, and you’re ready to go.

    Released in November 2011, at a suggested retail price of $169.99.
