08/28/2014 - Two DJ controllers by Hercules get a facelift and become the DJControl AIR S Series and DJControl AIR+ S Series

Press release - New York, August 28, 2014.
Hercules, a leading brand in the field of digital DJing, has redesigned two of its flagship DJ controllers: the DJControl AIR and DJControl AIR+. The DJControl AIR S Series and DJControl AIR+ S Series will help you set your back-to-school parties on fire!

Keeping its finger on the pulse of the DJing community, Hercules has designed these new devices with amateur DJs (AIR S Series) and advanced DJs (AIR+ S Series) in mind; both still offer abundant functionalities, but feature a design delivering enhanced user-friendliness.

New designs
The S Series devices feature unique central mixing controls, boasting a cutting-edge scratch-brushed aluminum appearance. The upper section of the jog wheels has been redesigned to offer greater ease of use. The platters on the DJControl AIR S Series are interchangeable*, enabling users to customize their decks and turn their controller into a unique item! The pad sets have also been redesigned to offer a more intuitive use.

Unchanged and abundant features
Both controllers offer the same versatility and performance as their predecessors:
Dual mixing decks
2 pressure-detecting jog wheels, including XL platters (15 cm / 5.9" diameter for the AIR+ model) - ideal for scratching
8 velocity pads offering precise control of loops, samples and effects
2 stereo audio outputs for airing the mix or previewing tracks; the AIR+ model also features a microphone input
And of course, the infrared sensor that makes these controllers so unique, enabling users to control effects without even touching the device!
The DJUCEDTM software combines performance and intuitive ease of use: DJUCEDTM 18° is included with the DJControl AIR S Series, and DJUCEDTM 40° is included with the DJControl AIR+ S Series.

The best features-to-price ratio
Announced at a suggested retail price of £129.99 (taxes included) and available from late September 2014, the Hercules DJControl AIR S Series is a digital DJ controller offering an unrivalled features-to-price ratio. Versatile and innovative, it will enable amateur and beginner DJs alike to mix using nothing more than their computer (PC or Mac®), headphones and speakers, for maximum enjoyment.
The DJControl AIR+ S Series continues to offer always more in its price category, with a suggested retail price of £189.99 (taxes included): more space, wider platters for more intuitive mixing, more creative features, more fun with AIR controls, more connectivity with RCA audio outputs and a microphone input. It will be available from mid-November 2014.

*Additional platters sold separately
