Control 4 decks in Djuced with 2 DJ controllers

Veröffentlicht in Tech Tips

To control 4 decks with 2 2-deck controllers, you must 
- control virtual decks 1 and 2 with one controller we call primary controller
- control virtual decks 3 and 4 with another controller we call secondary controller.

Djuced 5 cannot support twice the same controller, you need 2 different models, for example DJControl Inpulse 200 and primary controller and DJControl Starlight as secondary controller.

The secondary controller needs a specific mapping to control decks 3 and 4: this mapping is included in Djuced 5.0.8 for P32 DJ and DJControl Compact, and new mappings downloadable from Hercules support website for DJControl Starlight, DJControl Inpulse 200, 300 and 500.

Use 2 controllers in Djuced,
1) If the secondary mapping is not included yet in Djuced, copy the xml mapping file 
- in Windows, in the folder C:\Users\YourName\DJUCED\midi
- in macOS in folder MacintoshHD > Users > YourName > Documents > DJUCED > midi
2) connect the 2 DJ controllers to computer,
3) run Djuced
4) In Djuced, go in Settings> Mapping
5) Select the controller you plan to set as secondary controller, and click on Next

6) Select the mapping for deck 3 4 in the mapping list, and click on OK




7) You come back to Djuced mixing interface, and you see a short pop up screen of the last mapping you have loaded.


8) To avoid any issue, I recommend to close Djuced, and restart it.

9) Then in Djuced, select a 4-deck interface, for example "4Decks Horizontal" for a large screen, "4Decks vertical" for a small screen.


And that's it, you control decks 1 and 2 with the primary controller and decks 3 and 4 with the secondary controller.

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

Veröffentlicht in 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
