DJUCED 40 3.6 is now available

Published in DJ Software

Press Release - September 21st 2017 - Hercules releases the latest and greatest version of its DJUCED 40 software, 3.6, including the Qobuz online audio streaming service.

What’s new in DJUCED™ 40° 3.6 ?
Here, in DJUCED labs, we constantly improve, test and play with our software.
We teamed up with severals DJs and with YOU, the community, to improve the audio engine, the scratch feeling and the general latency of the software, especially with controllers.
Better than good, the feeling is great.
The integration of Qobuz adds fun to the experience with over 40 million titles to your connected parties.
We hope you’ll enjoy this 3.6 version as much as we worked on it.

DJUCED 40 3.6 has been rebuilt from the inside.
The 64-bit integration reduces the CPU consumption to avoid audio dropouts and latency.
It works flawlessly, on Mac and PC.

Want to use your laptop speakers and your controller preview at the same time ?
It’s just one click in the settings.

Mix any track from Qobuz catalogue as a normal track.
Search from within DJUCED browser the song you need.
Prepare your playlist with Qobuz App on your smartphone, and find it inside DJUCED browser.
Just magic. (Qobuz service subscription required)

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.

We know that feeling is important.
This is why we have remade our scratch engine, modelled from famous turntables and controllers, and tested by scratch DJs.
All supported controllers have been re-calibrated.
It changes everything.

MIDI communications between DJUCED and the supported controllers is now really fast. (less than 2ms)
Enjoy instant reaction when pushing a button, or instant LED return.

DJUCED 40 3.6 is available on DJUCED website

Acapella tracks: where can you find them?

Published in Tech Tips

A remix is often the vocal part of a song mixed with the instrumental part of another song, or more than one song.

The 2 major types of vocal tracks are:

  • a cappella [a kkapˈpɛlla] or acapella = a vocal song or section intended to be heard solo (in latin "a capella" means "in the chapel", so it is the song as one could hear in a chapel, with no instrumental backing),
  • isolated vocal track = a vocal track originally not intended to be heard solo. It may be a separate recording of a microphone (or several microphones) in studio/performance or the result of a processing to extract the voice from an audio track merging the voice(s) and musical instruments,

For the sake of clarity, vocal tracks are hereafter called acapellas even when they are isolated vocal tracks.

You can find on Youtube tons of acapellas to learn, train and have fun:
Acapella Collection
