09/21/2017 - Hercules releases the latest and greatest version of its DJUCED™ 40° software, 3.6, including the Qobuz music streaming service

Take advantage of the continuing evolution of DJUCEDTM to unleash all your creativity, with the Qobuz
professional online music platform now included.

Paris, France - September 21, 2017 - DJUCEDTM 40° has made some huge leaps forward since this summer’s NAMM Show. Say hello to version 3.6:

Pursuing their goal of constant improvement and creativity without any limits, the DJUCEDTM teams are thrilled to announce their partnership with the Qobuz online music service.

Enjoy Qobuz integration to mix with more than 40 million tracks in true CD quality (16-bit/44.1 kHz), and 70,000 Hi-Res albums (FLAC 24-bit/192 kHz Hi-Res format), directly in DJUCEDTM 40°.
Fully integrated into the DJUCEDTM 40° interface, tracks from Qobuz start playing just as intuitively as the DJ’s other tracks, and can of course easily be mixed with music stored locally on the DJ’s computer.
With a subscription to the Qobuz service, DJUCEDTM users will have absolutely no limits in terms of the tracks that they’re able to play, and to which they can add effects, EQ settings and samples to their hearts’ content. To let DJs experience firsthand the amazing possibilities that this opens up, an exceptional one-month trial offer of Qobuz HI-FI is being made available to all DJUCEDTM 40° users free of charge (a €19.99 value). 

To get the most out of this partnership, DJUCEDTM 40° 3.6 now also includes the following new features and improvements, highly anticipated by members of its DJ community:

CPU optimization: vital for all DJs. The DJUCEDTM teams have succeeded in reducing CPU use by 50%, freeing up the computer’s resources for all other tasks and letting DJs just have fun and lower their stress levels.

Post-fader FX: reverb and delay effects are no longer cut off when using the volume fader. Instead, effects are applied after the volume fader: in this way, you can still hear the end of effects when a deck’s volume fader is brought down. Perfect for improving quick transitions.

Reworked scratch engine: DJUCEDTM 40° version 3.5 had already improved this function. Based on benchmark turntables, version 3.6 ensures perfect scratching with unified rotation speed on all controllers. As all Hercules products are designed with the needs of DJs in mind, you can now change controllers without losing any of your track markers. Scratch samples have been added to the demo folder, with cue points conveniently included for you.

"Computer MIX OUT": use both your computer’s sound card and your controller’s sound card simultaneously. Perfect for using your computer’s speakers and your headphones at the same time.

Instant display: your controller’s display now responds faster than ever before.

Evolution of "Smart Mix": the Smart Mix only starts at the end of the currently playing track. The result: a perfectly smooth transition between your own mix and the Smart Mix.

The new version 3.6 update of DJUCEDTM 40° including integration of the Qobuz service (now available in much of Europe) will be available for download from September 21, 2017, directly from the DJUCED.com website (in the Downloads section).
