Control 4 decks in Djuced with 2 DJ controllers

Gepubliceerd 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 are close from public release 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.

Vegas Mode / Light animations on Hercules DJ controllers

Gepubliceerd in 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 (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

  • DJControl Instinct P8        Plug the USB port to a computer or a USB power supply, the Vegas mode starts after 3 minutes
  • DJControl Inpulse 200 Deck A (Loop In + Loup Out) + Deck B (Loop In + Loop Out)

Gepubliceerd in DJControl Starlight

Rennes, September 27, 2018 - Hercules, a leading manufacturer of DJ controllers and audio solutions, has teamed up with Serato to launch a new compact DJ controller with a unique backlighting feature to get started DJing: the DJControl Starlight. This ultra-compact, ultra-light and ultra-practical device packs all the features needed to mix and scratch with Serato DJ Lite.



The essential at your fingertips
With its built-in audio interface, the DJControl Starlight offers the pre-listening in the headphones, you can then play your mix on speakers, which is perfect for learning or creating new mixes. The system is so comprehensive for its size that it boasts all the essential features such as bass equalization/filter knobs for smooth transitions or touch-sensitive jogwheels for easy scratching. And all of that is boosted by the Hercules touch: a clear and powerful RGB backlighting with a unique strobe effect!

Hercules has leveraged its creativity to develop a new and entertaining light system that makes it easier to learn how to mix. You can control the lights either from the controller or right in Serato DJ Lite, thanks to seven new modes that let you keep an eye on the rhythm and find your way through your mix.

A quick look at the top five:
  • Two exclusive modes for a better understanding of the 4-beat bar and count the beats in a song:
    ▪ Beat 1 Program: the LEDs light up red with the first beat of the main track and blue with the following beats, turning off between each beat.
    ▪ Beat 2 Program: the LEDs light up in red with the first beat of the main song and blue with the following beats, without turning off.
  • A volume-synced mode:
    Master Volume Program: the LEDs light up in white (strobe effect) and their intensity varies with the volume.
  • Two modes to cue and navigate within the tracks:
    ▪ Waveform Color Program: 2 LEDs per turntable mimic the waveform colors of the respective tracks.
    ▪ Cue point Color Program: 2 LEDs per turntable light up gradually depending on the color of the upcoming Cue Point.
