09/10/2009 - Plug-and-Mix Decks For Next Generation DJs


Hercules Tools Up the Mac and PC Mixing Generation for a Pro-DJ flavour

London - September, 2009 - Hercules, the leader in portable DJing solutions for PC and Mac, has unveiled a brand new DJ controller packed with advanced mixing features for a pro DJ flavour. Highly portable and easy to use, the DJ Control MP3 e2 plugs into a PC or Mac via a USB port and instantly unlocks the potential in your playlists!

Retailing at £99.99, the Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2 works with all leading music file types (audio CD, MP3, WAV or WMA files for Windows®, AAC for Mac® OS), and gives all the control a DJ needs at their finger tips whether creating mixes, recording new tracks, designing the perfect playlist, or for DJing live, keeping the party going all night.

This new DJing controller succeeds the best-selling DJ Control MP3 (Edition 1) by Hercules, and comes with new features; a new, slicker and wider design for comfortable mixing, larger and more precise jog wheels, four navigation buttons (replacing the previous device’s joystick), increased space between the cross-fader and jog wheels, and more backlit buttons for mixing in low-light conditions.


Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2 makes mixing simple.

The Hercules DJ Control Mp3 e2 features two decks: The two jog wheels allow DJs to navigate through tracks, reduce or increase playback speed and to perform scratch effects. Thanks to the cross-fader and the two volume sliders, mixing tracks the professional way becomes easy with amazing results.

DJs can also add their personal touch by altering the music using the equalizer controls (bass, medium and treble ranges), adding (automatic) loops, multiple effects and even personal sounds, shaping music tracks to make them their own - the DJ Control Mp3 e2 even enables them to record their best creations.

Easy-to-use software, professional results

The DJ Control Mp3 e2 comes with its own easy-to-use software, VirtualDJ® 3 DJC, which analyses each track’s BPM (Beats Per Minute) and enables DJs to insert cue points (markers to launch a new track). The controller’s Sync, Pitch, Pitch Bend and Master Tempo controls adjust the track’s speed, allowing users to move smoothly from one track to another.

Fully portable

Compact in size (26.5 x 18.7 x 6.4 cm) and lighter than a laptop computer, the Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2 is the perfect portable solution. Powered by the computer’s USB port, it requires no external power supply. Its protective cover enables users to carry it safely, while its wide, non-slip pads ensure perfect stability, even in the most intensive use conditions!

The Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2 will be available in early October 2009, at the recommended retail price of £99.99 incl. VAT. So... all hands on decks!

The Hercules brand offers a range of solutions designed for beginner, amateur, advanced and professional DJs.
