Vegas Mode / Light animations on Hercules DJ controllers

Pubblicato in data Tech Tips

When pluging the DJ controller to a computer, the lights of the controller switch on and off to form a light show called Vegas Mode.
It shows which keys are backlit, it animates your booth in a party when you stop DJing,  and it can also be used in your Youtube videos.
Here are the controls to start the Vegas Mode at any moment:

Instant (and short) Vegas mode

  • DJControl Instinct           Deck A (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus) + Deck B (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus)
  • DJControl Air                   Deck A (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus) + Deck B (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus)
  • DJControl Air +                Deck A (Bank 1 + Bank 2) + Deck B (Bank 1 + Bank 2)
  • DJConsole Rmx2             Deck A (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus) + Deck B (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus)
= its plays instantly a Vegas Mode animation, and stops at the end of the animation

Non Stop Vegas Mode
  • DJControl Wave               Switch OFF the battery, press right deck SAMPLE button, connect the USB and keep the Sample button pressed down for a long time=>  Non stop Vegas Animation
  • Universal DJ                     Set Universal DJ on tablet mode, and plug the USB => Non stop Vegas animation
  • DJControl Jogvision          Press Left-deck Preview + Load A + Load B + Right-deck Preview => Instant Vegas animation, then 25 seconds off, then non stop Vegas Animation
  • P32 DJ                              Plug P32 DJ to the USB port of a computer or to  a USB power supply, the Vegas mode starts automatically (after 5 minutes if P32 DJ is connected to a computer, after 2 minutes if it is connected to a USB power adapter)
  • DJControl Instinct P8        Plug the USB port to a computer or a USB power supply, the Vegas mode starts after 3 minutes

Hercules Unveils DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 at 2017 NAMM Show

Pubblicato in data DJ Software

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+

Setup for DJing with time-code vinyl discs

Pubblicato in data 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.

Traktor LE 2.8.1 for DJConsole Rmx2 Premium TR

Pubblicato in data DJConsole RMX2

Traktor team has released Traktor Pro 2.8.1 and Traktor LE 2.8.1.

The users of DJConsoleRmx2 Premium TR can download Traktor LE 2.8.1 from Native Instruments website.


Run Traktor LE  2.81


and benefit of 2 new features of Traktor LE 2.81.

64-Bit Application Architecture (in Mac OS / Windows 64-bit)
Definition
: Traktor LE has now 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 Traktor Pro to manage of more items (larger Track Collections, better playback caching, etc.).

Parallel Audio Analysis (in offline mode, on multi-core processors as i3, i5, i7)
Definition

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.

To download Traktor LE 2.8.1, you must be a registered owner of Traktor LE 2 (included with DJConsole Rmx2 Premium TR)
- Go to https://www.native-instruments.com/en/

Play a mix on a bluetooth speaker while previewing on wired headphones in Mac OS

Pubblicato in data DJConsole RMX2

Wired headphones are generally recommended for DJing since wired headphones have no latency, while most bluetooth headphones have a latency which can disturb the DeeJay operations.

Bluetooth speakers can be used in DJing to play the music for the audience : bluetooth latency is not disturbing for the audience.


Here is a process on Mac OS to use
- a bluetooth speaker for the audience,
- and wired headphones for the DeeJay preview.

1) Connect the bluetooth speaker to the Mac
Go in Preference > Bluetooth and pair the Bluetooth speaker


2) If your audio interface control panel has a menu to set the headphones on the channel 1-2, set the headphones channel on 1-2.


3) Go in Utilities and run Audio MIDI Setup


4) In the Audio MIDI Setup, go to Window Audio devices, and create an aggregate device in clicking on the + button on bottom left


5) In the Aggregate device, add
- first, the Bluetooth speaker
- second, your audio interface device.




6) Click on Configure Speakers (bottom right of the window) and set:
- Aggregate Device as Multichannel: Quadriphonic
- Front: channel 1 and 2
- Rear : channel 3 and 4


7) In your DJ software, in the sound setup, set:
- Sound Card: Aggregate Device
- Outputs
   Master: Channel 1&2
   Headphones:  Channel 3&4


You can now
- play your mix on the bluetooth speaker for the audience
- preview your mix in your headphones.

Remark: you can 
1) neither use the microphone connected to the audio interface, as the microphone input is not connected to the bluetooth speaker,
2) nor use the output 1-2 of your audio interface to play the mix on wired speakers: your master output is your bluetooth speaker, while the output 1-2 of your audio interface plays the preview.
