In mid-January at the 2010 NAMM show, Hercules offered a sneak preview of its latest DJ controller. Today, at the Musikmesse European trade fair in Frankfurt, the manufacturer is pleased to announce the release date and retail price of its new Hercules DJ Console Mk4. This 2-deck portable DJ controller, featuring built-in audio, will be available in June 2010, at a suggested retail price of $199.99.
The Hercules DJ Console Mk4 is the most portable and most compact 2-deck DJ controller with built-in audio for PC and Mac®: just 26.5 x 18.7cm in size (10.4” x 7.3”) and weighing in at a mere 1.15kg (3.3lb), DJ Console Mk4 is the ideal controller for mobile DJs, wherever they are mixing.
In addition to its 2 stereo outputs (one for mixing, the other for previewing tracks), the Hercules DJ Console Mk4 also features 2 stereo audio inputs – unique in this product category – to connect any analog audio sources. It integrates perfectly into a DJ’s environment, whether he/she is just starting out or already at a professional level.
With the DJ Console Mk4, DJs can:
– Integrate analog audio into their digital mix
– Switch between mixing on their computer and mixing with standard DJ decks (CD or vinyl): using the DJ Console Mk4 and the included VirtualDJ® software, DJs can manipulate external audio sources just as they would with an analog mixing setup (the cross fader, volume faders and EQ knobs control mixing between the two external decks).
