Setup for DJing with time-code vinyl discs

Published in Tech Tips

DJing with time-code vinyl requires
- a DJ software capable of time-code DJing as VirtualDJ Pro, Cross, and 2 time-code vinyl discs supported by the DJ software
- 2 DJ turntables,
- an DJ controller whose audio interface has 2 stereo inputs supporting phono level if the DJ turntables have a phono output level, for example a Hercules DJ Console Rmx2, 4-Mx, Rmx, Mk4 or Mk2.

Then you have 2 possible installations:
- Either you use no analogue mixer: you then use the Hercules DJ Console mixer controls
- Or you use an analogue mixer: you then use the mixer instead of the central controls of Hercules DJ Console.

A) With no analogue mixer
- Connect the outputs of the turntables to Hercules DJConsole Rmx2 :
  - the turntable located on left on inputs 1-2
  - the turntable located on right on inputs 3-4
  - set the inputs on phono level if your turntables output is in phono level,
  - activates your inputs in your DJConsole Rmx2 control panel,
- Connect the headphones on DJConsole Rmx2 headphones output plug, on front panel or on top panel,
- Connect your speakers on DJ Console Rmx2 outputs 1-2 (dual XLR or dual RCA)
- Play your time-code vinyl discs on your 2 turntables
- Run your DJ software, and calibrate your inputs in time code vinyl mode
- your turntable on left side now controls the left virtual deck, your turntable on the right side now controls the right-side virtual deck.
The connections are as follows


B) With an analogue mixer
- Connect the outputs of the turntables to Hercules DJConsole Rmx2 :
  - the turntable located on left on inputs 1-2
  - the turntable located on right on inputs 3-4
  - set the inputs on phono level if your turntables output is in phono level,
  - activates your inputs in your DJConsole Rmx2 control panel,
- Connect the output 1-2 of your DJConsole Rmx2 to the input 1-2 of the analogue mixer,
- Connect the output 3-4 of your DJConsole Rmx2 to the input 3-4 on the analogue mixer,
- Connect the headphones on the mixer headphones output plug,
- Connect your speakers on the mixer master outputs
- Play your time-code vinyl discs on your 2 turntables
- Run your DJ software, and calibrate your inputs in time code vinyl mode
- your turntable on left side now controls the left virtual deck, your turntable on the right side now controls the right-side virtual deck.
The connections are as follows

DJControl Compact: The most full-featured ultra-portable DJ controller

Published in DJControl Compact

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.

With a footprint of just 13.4 x 3.9 inches / 34 x 10 cm, this brand-new controller makes no compromises when it comes to functionalities, and is the most full-featured controller in its category.

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. It’s also the perfect "backup" system in the event of problems with your main controller.

Finally, for all those who love mixing and impromptu parties with friends, DJControl Compact is the must-have practical and effective controller: it lets you quickly take control of essential DJing functions, and play your favorite music all night long! 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.

DJUCEDTM 18°, the complete mixing software, is included with the controller. Highly intuitive to use, it lets you quickly master all the basic skills that any DJ needs to know - including setting Cue points, syncing two different tracks, creating loops, and saving your mixes.

Hercules DJControl Compact will be available from October 2015, at a suggested retail price of
- €79.99 (tax included),
- USD 69.99 (tax not included),
- £59.99 (taxes included).


So get ready to "Party everywhere"!
