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+

Use a the same time the computer built-in sound card and the DJ controller audio in Mac OS

Pubblicato in data Tech Tips

When the DJ software audio setup menu lets you select 1 audio device while you wish to use 2 sound cards simultaneously, the solution in Mac OS is aggregating devices.
The aggregate device is 1 virtual sound card aggregating 2 (or more) sound cards.

Here is an example to play
- the mix on the Mac built-in sound card
- the preview on the headphones output of the DJ controller Universal DJ
- in Djuced 40 3.1.0, in Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite).

1) Connect your DJ Controller to the Mac computer.

2) Set your 2 sound cards at the same sampling rate
- In Mac OS top bar, go to Go > Utilities
- Run Audio MIDI Setup
- If you don't come directly to the Audio Devices menu, go to Window > Show Audio Devices
- Select your DJ Controller, check its audio format, for example 44100 Hz with Hercules Universal DJ


- Select Built-in Output, make sure the audio format is the same as in your DJ controller, 44100Hz (=44.1kHz)



3) Create an aggregate device
- at the left bottom corner of the Audio Devices window, you have a + sign: click on it, and select "Create Aggregate Device"

- You can let it called "Aggregate Device" or give to this device the name you want, for example " Aggregate - Computer & Universal"
- In the list of audio devices included in the Aggregate device, check in the Use column the 2 audio devices "Built-in Output" and Hercules Universal DJ

Leave Audio MIDI Setup.

4) Run Djuced 40
- Go to the Settings: click on the gear wheel on the right top corner

 - you reach the audio settings menu
  in Audio Device, select the name of your aggregate device
  in Master field, select Output 1&2
  in the headphones field, select Output 5&6 


Click on OK. In Djuced 40, you now play
- the mix on your computer built-in sound card,
- the preview in the headphones output of your Universal DJ.

P32 DJ Controller unveilled at 2016 NAMM Show

Pubblicato in data P32DJ

Anaheim, CA - January 21, 2016 - Hercules, a leader in mobile and professional DJ equipment, today announces at NAMM 2016, the company’s new innovative digital DJ Controller, the Hercules P32 DJ and powerful and recently updated, full, pro-version DJ companion software, DJUCEDTM 40°.

Specially designed for creative mixing and remixing, the combination of the Hercules P32 DJ and DJUCED 40° is unique, drawing its strength from the core of its two related, yet very different worlds; DJing and music production. The Hercules P32 DJ makes a simple promise to its users as an all-in-one solution, offering innovative, intuitive and visual functionalities, while allowing DJs to enrich their creativity.

"We see an entire new generation of DJ/producers who are less interested in traditional turntablism, but still looking for the ability to slice, mix and remix tracks while integrating samples," said Michael Peterson, Hercules US Marketing Manager. "Through its integration with the DJUCED 40° software, we’ve made it incredibly easy for everyone from the beginner DJ to the professional DJ to use the Hercules P32 DJ and excel while not being overwhelmed with advanced beat matching techniques."

 

 

A unique all-in-one controller, at the crossroads of DJing and performance
The uncompromising Hercules P32 DJ embodies the optimization of two sources of inspiration: an all-in-one controller, perfectly tailored for mixing, boasting two 16-pad grids with advanced DJ software, allowing DJs to follow the rhythm of their creativity.

 
The two decks each feature a dual-digit display for highlighting loop sizes, while also offering effect racks and cue buttons, as well as a central mixer, and direct access to all mixing functions. Hercules has also added 32-backlit pads for an ergonomic and visual use of the DJUCED 40° remix features including; sampler, slicer, loops and much more. Additionally, the Hercules P32 DJ features a 4-channel audio interface that lets users connect speakers and headphones for an all-in-one mixing solution.

The thrill of instant creative mixing: Play. Remix. Perform.
The Hercules P32 DJ represents complete harmony of a controller and DJ software to create a new category of DJ Performer.

 

The 32 ergonomic and reactive pads also offer great precision and convey a sense of quality. Combined with the intelligence of DJUCED 40°, these pads provide DJs with assistance and visual indicators to help keep their tracks’ rhythm and phrase intact, thanks to the quantization feature or the slip mode.

To perfect the experience, the solution is fully Plug & Play compatible, without requiring complex driver installation. Additionally, the DJUCED 40° software also features tracks and multiple sample packs that let DJs get started instantly.

Live the show. Develop an onstage presence
Being a DJ is much more than just technical skills and creating a playlist: it also involves the ability to put on a show. Hercules P32 DJ lets users develop their signature sound, and visual presentation, thanks to dynamic backlighting and scalable sample packs provided by DJUCED 40°.

Hercules P32DJ will be available from select retail partners as well as online at a suggested retail price of $249.99, beginning on March 3, 2016.

For those attending the NAMM Show, please stop by the booth, #5298, from January 21-24, 2016.

DJControl Compact: The most full-featured ultra-portable DJ controller

Pubblicato in data 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. DJs can take the controller with them everywhere, to practice with or prepare their mixes whenever the mood strikes them: waiting for the train, while traveling, in hotel rooms or even at a café terrace.

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),
- £59.99 (taxes included).


So get ready to "Party everywhere"!
