Hercules (NAMM Booth #6809) unveils the DJ Console Mk4, a mixing console with a compact design and analog audio source connectivity. This new mixer for amateur to mobile DJs is an updated version of the company's earlier models worldwide, the DJ Console and DJ Console Mk2, and features a multitude of improvements and additions. This portable controller includes two decks and a high-performance audio interface, making it an all-in-one DJ station for PC and Mac users starting in spring 2010.
Built for mobile DJ'ing, the DJ Console Mk4 features a modern design with a thinner but wider body than the previous model, the DJ Console Mk2. The metallic-colored surface top with a see-through plate and new body provides a comfortable mixing solution to any DJ. It also includes more precise jog wheels, four browser buttons instead of a joystick, more space between the crossfader and jog wheels, and backlit buttons for ease of use during low-light conditions.
This new Hercules controller will be bundled with VirtualDJ® DJC Edition mixing software that provides users with a wealth of useful functions including audio file analysis for calculating music tracks'' BPM, suggesting a cue point and more. The console also includes functions for synchronizing tracks, as well as for applying automatic loops and multiple effects for users who want to add their own personal touch to their musical creations or record their mixes as audio files. As a final touch, Hercules is including a graphic skin that can be placed underneath the see-through plate on top of the controller, allowing users to give a unique look to their console.
