Hercules Unveils DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 at 2017 NAMM Show

A brand-new version of the pro DJ software that lets users mix, create and have fun with their music in the most intuitive way possible

Anaheim, California – January 19, 2017 – Spearheaded by Hercules, a leader in mobile and professional DJ equipment, the DJUCED™ teams are thrilled to announce the company’s new enhanced version of their pro DJ software DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 at NAMM 2017.

A big part of the teams’ strength lies in the importance they place on listening to their user community when it comes to making improvements in DJUCED™, as was the case with the Sample Editor, and responding to the new expectations that have emerged from the base of 500,000 licensed users.

More precise than ever: A fully-scalable interface with 4K support, and high-resolution waveforms

One of the most important aspects for DJs – the ability to view the tracks that they’re working on as precisely as possible – has been taken into account in DJUCED™ 40° 3.5. To make things easier and more comfortable for DJs, the interface automatically adapts to all screen resolutions from 1024 x 600 right up to 4K displays.
What’s more, thanks to the new high-resolution waveforms, DJs can use a high-level zoom – with single-sample accuracy – with 6 different vivid color schemes available to enhance viewing precision and speed, and for better interaction with the DJ.
 
Beat Counter

Instantly view the beat alignment between “Master” and “Deck” for easier beatmatching with this new visual tool.
 
Discover even more great improvements!

The “Smart Mix” Automix feature can be used directly from the DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 file explorer. This feature helps users find the best-matching tracks to be played, in terms of BPM and key.

Vinyl Torque is an innovative new emulator that lets users feel the weight of real turntable platters, and use the “Brake effect”.

And last but certainly not least, improvements to the Scratch feature in DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 now ensure optimized compatibility with the Hercules DJControl Jogvision controller!

All of the following Hercules DJ controllers are compatible with DJUCED™ 40° 3.5:

•    New: Hercules DJControl Jogvision
•    Hercules DJControl Instinct P8
•    Hercules P32 DJ
•    Hercules Universal DJ
•    Hercules DJ Control AIR+ S Series
•    Hercules DJ Control AIR+
•    Hercules DJConsole RMX2
•    Hercules DJControlWaveM3
•    Hercules DJControlWave

The new DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 update is be available for download since January 19, 2017 – in the Downloads section at djuced.com.

Traktor Pro 2.8.0 released

The Traktor Team is pleased to announce that a new version of Traktor Pro 2 – version 2.8.0 – is now available for download via Service Center. The update from previous Traktor Pro 2 releases is free.

64-Bit Application Architecture
Definition
: Traktor Pro now has a 64-bit architecture to access all the available RAM on computers with 64-bit operating systems, instead of accessing only to 2GB of RAM on the previous Traktor release.
Result: The access to more RAM allows Traktr Pro to manage of more items (larger Track Collections, more Remix Deck samples, better playback caching, etc.).

Multi-Processor Improvement
Traktor Pro 2.7.0 decreased the audio performance on some multiprocessor computers compared to Traktor Pro 2.6.8.
2.8.0 releases improves the performance on multiprocessors computers, and improves the audio performance compared to 2.70 release.

Automatic Deck Flavor Switching
Definition: Automatic Deck Flavor Switching means loading or dragging a Track or Remix Set onto a deck causes the deck to become automatically a track deck or a remix deck to play this content in the appropriate mode.
Target: Automatic Deck Flavor Switching, previously limited to Kontrol S8 Browser, is now available to any user of Traktor Pro 2.8.

Parallel Audio Analysis
Definition: The “Parallel Processing” mode is new mode for Traktor Pro to use multiple threads to analyze several tracks simultaneously.
Access: This option can be activated at the bottom of the Analysis window you get when right clicking on tracks and choosing “Analyze” from the context menu.


Target: Processing large collections of files is faster with this option enabled, but more CPU consuming, so it should not be done while performing but in an offline situation.

There are other new features as the support of Native Instruments controller Traktor Kontrol D2 and some bugfixes.

Traktor Pro 2.80 does not support Mac OS 10.8.

Convert .wav files into MP3 with iTunes in Windows

Most DJ software with a recording function let the Deejay record in Wav format. Some of you wonder how to convert the .wav file into MP3 format to share your creation. Here is a process to do it in Windows with iTunes 11.2.

1) Start iTunes

 

2) Click on iTunes rectangle on the upper-left corner

 

3) Select the Preferences menu

           

 

4) In the General Preferences, go to “Import Settings…”.

 

5) In the Import Settings, select Import using “MP3 Encoder”

           

 

6) In the Import Settings, click on the Setting field to set for the MP3 compression rate.

 

7) If you select the “Custom” setting, you can select the compression rate you wish.

Click on OK to close.

 

8) You can check your compression settings in the field “Details”.

Click on OK to close.

iTunes is now set to convert files into the MP3 format you have selected.

 

9) If the file you want to convert is not in iTunes library, add this file in iTunes library.

Import your .wav file in iTunes.

Click on the rectangle icon in iTunes upper-left corner, and choose “Add File to Library…”.

           

 

Browse to your .wav file, select it and click on Open.

 

10) Once the audio file is in iTunes libray, right click on it in iTunes and select “Create MP3 Version”.

 

11) iTunes converts it into MP3 format.

 

12) Once iTunes has created a MP3 version, it is located by default in a folder

“C:\Users\YourName\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media”.

To check where it is located, right click on the created track in iTunes, and select Get Info

The iTunes Summary window shows the location of the MP3 file.

           

 

13) To check the default location of the MP3 files you create in iTunes, click on the rectangle icon in iTunes upper-left corner, go to Preferences, and go to the Advanced Preferences tab.

You see iTunes Media folder location, and you can change it if needed.

Remark: iTunes does not suppress the .wav file when encoding its .mp3 version, so at the end of the operation, you get 2 audio tracks with the same name in iTunes library:

-       one is the .wav file,

-       the other is the .mp3 file.
