Hercules Unveils DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 at 2017 NAMM Show

A brand-new version of the pro DJ software that lets users mix, create and have fun with their music in the most intuitive way possible

Anaheim, California – January 19, 2017 – Spearheaded by Hercules, a leader in mobile and professional DJ equipment, the DJUCED™ teams are thrilled to announce the company’s new enhanced version of their pro DJ software DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 at NAMM 2017.

A big part of the teams’ strength lies in the importance they place on listening to their user community when it comes to making improvements in DJUCED™, as was the case with the Sample Editor, and responding to the new expectations that have emerged from the base of 500,000 licensed users.

More precise than ever: A fully-scalable interface with 4K support, and high-resolution waveforms

One of the most important aspects for DJs – the ability to view the tracks that they’re working on as precisely as possible – has been taken into account in DJUCED™ 40° 3.5. To make things easier and more comfortable for DJs, the interface automatically adapts to all screen resolutions from 1024 x 600 right up to 4K displays.
What’s more, thanks to the new high-resolution waveforms, DJs can use a high-level zoom – with single-sample accuracy – with 6 different vivid color schemes available to enhance viewing precision and speed, and for better interaction with the DJ.
 
Beat Counter

Instantly view the beat alignment between “Master” and “Deck” for easier beatmatching with this new visual tool.
 
Discover even more great improvements!

The “Smart Mix” Automix feature can be used directly from the DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 file explorer. This feature helps users find the best-matching tracks to be played, in terms of BPM and key.

Vinyl Torque is an innovative new emulator that lets users feel the weight of real turntable platters, and use the “Brake effect”.

And last but certainly not least, improvements to the Scratch feature in DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 now ensure optimized compatibility with the Hercules DJControl Jogvision controller!

All of the following Hercules DJ controllers are compatible with DJUCED™ 40° 3.5:

London, September 10, 2015 - Hercules, the mobile DJ controllers specialist, is innovating in the world of ultra-portable mixing, and is thrilled to unveil its new Hercules DJControl Compact.

Thanks to its compact, elongated shape, Hercules DJControl Compact is very easy to take with you in any bag - including laptop computer bags. DJs can take the controller with them everywhere, to practice with or prepare their mixes whenever the mood strikes them: waiting for the train, while traveling, in hotel rooms or even at a café terrace.

DJControl Compact is the perfect ultra-mobile companion for precision control of DJ software, as it makes no compromises in terms of functionalities: control loops, effects, samples and Cue points using its 2 sets of 4 pads, tweak the sound of tracks using the dual two-band equalizers (one per deck), and control the volume independently on both tracks. You can even do some scratching using the controller’s 2 jog wheels, measuring 3 inches / 7.5 cm in diameter.

All you need is a computer (PC or Mac®) with a USB port to connect the controller, a pair of speakers connected to the computer, and a music playlist.

DJControl Jogvision - First live demo in Frankfurt Musik Messe, from April 15 to 18th, 2015

Frankfurt, April 14, 2015 - Hercules and Serato are pleased to invite you to come and check out the first ever live demo of DJControl Jogvision with Serato DJ Intro.Musikmesse, booth C44, Hall 5, Ebene 1

 

DJControl Jogvision, bundled with Serato DJ Intro and Serato DJ Upgrade Ready, enhances the performances put on by mobile DJs. It is the most portable DJ controller featuring in-jog displays, and the most accessible.

 

The display in the center of each jog wheel simultaneously indicates both the playback speed, and the position in the track. This makes it possible for DJs to look at their computer screen less often, for improved focus on mixing, faster reaction times and better syncing of tracks. DJs can now pay more attention to their music, and to the audience.

 

"With help from members of the DJ community, our goal in designing this controller was to produce the best jog wheels in our product range, whose feel, handling and visual indicators allow for the best performances when mixing and scratching," explains Claude Guillemot, CEO of Guillemot Corporation S.A. "This has also been our motivation in working with Serato, whose software applications are perfect in terms of providing the very best experience with this new controller. Our work together has been remarkable, and we are very happy with the end results. We would like to thank all of Serato’s teams for the excellent quality of our interactions with them."

DJControl Jogvision: Technical data sheet

 

Controls SERATO DJ Intro (available for download free of charge)
SERATO DJ Upgrade Ready (optional)

 

Two circular displays per deck
Blue ring: speed and scratch indicator
White ring: position indicator
Perfect for scratching: the display indicates either the current scratch positon, or the scratch amplitude (to return to the starting point)

 

Displays emulating the rotation of a motorized platter
The blue ring rotates at 33
RPM
As on professional DJ CD players, the blue ring’s rotation speed changes when the DJ alters the pitch
Incorporating a circuit of LEDs, the display provides faster performance than an LCD, which is limited by its refresh rate

 

Solidly-built, comfortable DJ controller
Large 5.9" / 15 cm jog wheels featuring touch detection
Sturdy 17.9 x 10.0" / 45.5 x 25.4 cm body
2 sets of 4 progressive pads illuminated with 4 different lighting colors (each color indicates a control type)
AIR Control for contactless control of the low-pass filter effect: the audience sees the DJ’s hand movements, thanks to the AIR Control’s 11.8" / 30 cm range

 

Audio design engineered for performance
24-bit/96 kHz resolution
Dual Master outputs (2 RCA + 1/8" stereo) and Booth output (2 RCA)
Headphones output
1/4" microphone input
1/8" stereo line input

DJs Karla Kenya and DJ Spawn will perform live and demo DJControl Jogvision with Serato DJ Intro for the first time ever at the Hercules Musikmesse booth. Don’t miss this exciting event and the opportunity to interact with these two DJs.

Hercules announces DJControl Jogvision on CES Las Vegas, January 6th, 2015

At CES 2015 in Las Vegas, Hercules - a leader in mobile DJ controllers - is thrilled to announce DJControl Jogvision: the 2-deck controller which is set to change the way that DJs perform using a computer. DJControl Jogvision is bundled with the Serato DJ Intro mixing software.

DJControl Jogvision is the first mobile DJ controller to feature a display in the centre of each jog wheel, simultaneously indicating both the playback speed and position in the track at a glance. These displays allow DJs to spend less time looking at a computer screen, for enhanced focus, faster responsiveness and better track syncing - paying more attention to the music and their audience instead.

While a track is playing, the screen on each jog wheel displays 2 easy-to-read concentric rings:

- the larger ring (on the outer edge of the screen) rotates like a motor-driven 33 or 45 rpm turntable, with the rotation speed varying according to the pitch adjustment; and
- the smaller ring (in the centre) indicates the position within the track, represented by way of 16 segments: the number of illuminated segments shows the current position in the track - from 1 segment at the beginning, to 16 segments at the end.

When scratching, the screens guide the DJ by indicating the amount of angular displacement: in the display, the DJ sees the position that his or her hand can return to.

By allowing DJs to intuitively perform based on what they see right at their fingertips, and by offering precision and speed unmatched in this sector of mobile DJing, DJControl Jogvision has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree.

Displays built into the jog wheels, for less time spent staring at a computer screen

Computers have taken their place in the world of DJing in the same way as CD players and vinyl turntables. However, DJs often lament the fact that having to keep on looking at a computer screen is distracting - constantly turning their gaze to see what’s taking place on the computer, instead of checking out the crowd or focusing on their hands while mixing.

Up until now, DJs have been forced to watch a computer screen in order to see at what speed a track is playing, how much time remains before the end of the track, or - when scratching - to easily locate a scratch position.

The dual displays on the DJControl Jogvision’s jog wheels replace all of this information in the DJ’s eyes: the larger ring turns at the track’s playback speed, based on a speed of 33 rpm, while the smaller ring indicates the position of the cursor in the track (1 illuminated segment = start of the track, 16 illuminated segments = end of the track, 8 illuminated segments = middle of the track). And while scratching, the larger ring shows the amount of angular displacement, allowing the DJ to easily locate scratch positions.

Position in the audio track Playback speed based on 33 rpm

Audio design customized for mobile DJing

DJControl Jogvision includes a built-in audio interface with resolution of 24-bit/96 kHz, and features:
- dual master outputs, allowing for the connection of speakers to play music for the audience, plus booth speakers (i.e. monitoring speakers for the DJ),
- a headphone output for previewing tracks,
- a microphone input for talking to the crowd,
- a line input for connecting an external audio source.
In this way, DJControl Jogvision lets DJs enjoy high-quality sound everywhere: in the studio, at concerts, in clubs, while hosting an event or at parties with friends.

Creativity meets elegance

The 2 sets of 4 drum-style pads allow the DJ to trigger audio samples or jump from cue point to cue point, just by tapping on the pads. Variable-colored backlighting shows the DJ which command is assigned to a pad.

The Air Control function is a contactless sensor, which allows the DJ to control effects in real time simply by varying the distance between his or her hand and the sensor: it works just like magic, and lets DJs perform these gestures at a height at which they can be seen by the whole audience.

The first Hercules DJ controller bundled with Serato DJ Intro

DJControl Jogvision comes bundled with Serato DJ Intro: designed for music lovers, Serato DJ Intro allows for 2-deck digital music mixing on a PC or Mac, to which DJControl Jogvision is connected.

To check it out for yourself, please join us at CES Las Vegas, the Venetian Hotel, Veronese 2504 meeting room, from January 6th to 9th, 2015.

Play a mix on a bluetooth speaker while previewing on wired headphones in Mac OS

Wired headphones are generally recommended for DJing since wired headphones have no latency, while most bluetooth headphones have a latency which can disturb the DeeJay operations.

Bluetooth speakers can be used in DJing to play the music for the audience : bluetooth latency is not disturbing for the audience.


Here is a process on Mac OS to use
- a bluetooth speaker for the audience,
- and wired headphones for the DeeJay preview.

1) Connect the bluetooth speaker to the Mac
Go in Preference > Bluetooth and pair the Bluetooth speaker


2) If your audio interface control panel has a menu to set the headphones on the channel 1-2, set the headphones channel on 1-2.


3) Go in Utilities and run Audio MIDI Setup


4) In the Audio MIDI Setup, go to Window Audio devices, and create an aggregate device in clicking on the + button on bottom left


5) In the Aggregate device, add
- first, the Bluetooth speaker
- second, your audio interface device.




6) Click on Configure Speakers (bottom right of the window) and set:
- Aggregate Device as Multichannel: Quadriphonic
- Front: channel 1 and 2
- Rear : channel 3 and 4


7) In your DJ software, in the sound setup, set:
- Sound Card: Aggregate Device
- Outputs
   Master: Channel 1&2
   Headphones:  Channel 3&4


You can now
- play your mix on the bluetooth speaker for the audience
- preview your mix in your headphones.

Remark: you can 
1) neither use the microphone connected to the audio interface, as the microphone input is not connected to the bluetooth speaker,
2) nor use the output 1-2 of your audio interface to play the mix on wired speakers: your master output is your bluetooth speaker, while the output 1-2 of your audio interface plays the preview.
