All-nighters only - Sneak preview: Hercules DJ 4Set at CES in Las Vegas

Pubblicato in data DJ 4Set

Las Vegas, January, 2011 - There’s a "DJ night" atmosphere going on at the Hercules booth, at CES, from January 6 to 9, 2011. The brand, leader and pioneer of mobile DJ consoles for computers, is unveiling its DJ 4Set: all the performance of a DJ controller designed for having fun all night long!

Hercules DJ 4Set combines the functions and sensations of a pro controller with the simplicity users need for free rein in hosting wild, memorable parties!

Hercules DJ 4Set is the ultimate solution for mixing fans wanting to perform at unforgettable events, bringing Ibiza and Miami tunes direct to the dance floor, without having to familiarize themselves with their gear days in advance.

 

Mobile, so you can party anywhere

Featuring a slim and compact design (35x25cm/13.7x9.8’’), Hercules DJ 4Set truly lets you take your DJ set anywhere: now there are no more limits in throwing together great parties with friends, whenever you like. The controller is also large enough for comfortable mixing, with lots of space between the controls - and let’s not forget the non-slip feet, that stand tough through even the most intense mixing sessions.


Simplicity and advanced features rolled into one

Some advanced controller features found on Hercules DJ 4Set are, without a doubt, its 2 large touch-sensitive jog wheels. Measuring 12cm in diameter - the same size as scratching jog wheels on DJ CD players - and featuring touch sensors on their top surface, they detect the weight of the DJ’s hand and enable "Touch Wheel" mode, allowing the user to stop/restart playback, or engage in some serious scratching.
The highly distinctive "ring" on the base of the jog wheels - the signature of the new Hercules mixing solutions - features a super-ergonomic design, providing users with intuitive and simple pitch control.
Hercules DJ 4Set also includes green or red backlighting on its jog wheels and buttons, making the controls easier to locate and providing enhanced usability.


An invitation to performance

DJ 4Set also features all of the audio capabilities users need to host parties worthy of the name: 4 channels (including 2 for the mix, and 1 stereo headphone output for previewing tracks), plus a microphone input with a talk-over function, allowing the DJ to pump things up even more on the dance floor.

Last but not least - in keeping with the latest DJing trends - the controller lets users mix not only on 2 decks, but on 4 virtual decks as well, thanks to the very practical deck indicators on the console’s mixing surface (A, B, C, D). Two music tracks on 2 decks, a loop, an effect or a voice on the 2 others... all this potential is right there, at your fingertips! 
To let users employ their creativity to the fullest, Hercules DJ 4Set offers 60 controls in 2-deck mode, and 112 controls in 4-deck mode. 
The layout of controls has been optimized to make using the console quick and easy to learn. All controls are MIDI-based, and therefore independent of one another, for even greater ease of use.

Hercules DJ 4Set is bundled with VirtualDJ® LE DJC Edition (supporting 4-deck mixing). It is also compatible with all 2 and 4-deck MIDI mixing software.

Availability: April 2011.

"Feed your desire for music, nightlife and fun...anywhere anytime."
