That title was a bit of a mouthful but this is the first PC Based DJ Mixer that I’ve seen for well under 100 quid (£69 to be precise).
I’m generally not a fan of DJ music (see I don’t even know the proper term for it) but I’ve been dragged to a few clubs before and can kind of appreciate there is some musical ability involved in working the decks (though I think I’ll stick to rock thank you).
The Hercules DJ Control MP3 lets you mix your own tracks (MP3s) together with various effects, by using the 2 jog wheels, crossfader sliders and 8 EQ and pitch knobs. Okay it’s not in the same league as the Technics 1200’s or 1210’s but for under 70 pounds sterling you get a lot to play with.
The DJ Control MP3 is powered purely by the USB connection (you may have to unplug your USB Beer Cooler first) so provided you’ve got a 5.1 sound card, amplified speakers and a load of music (CD, MP3, WAV or WMA files) you’re ready to get mixing.
I must admit this will not be on my Xmas list and I won’t be best pleased if my neighbours get one, but if you’re interested in getting started in the mixing world then you should check out the Hercules over at nusystems.
