Vegas Mode / Light animations on Hercules DJ controllers

Pubblicato in data Tech Tips

When pluging the DJ controller to a computer, the lights of the controller switch on and off to form a light show called Vegas Mode.
It shows which keys are backlit, it animates your booth in a party when you stop DJing,  and it can also be used in your Youtube videos.
Here are the controls to start the Vegas Mode at any moment:

Instant (and short) Vegas mode

  • DJControl Instinct           Deck A (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus) + Deck B (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus)
  • DJControl Air                   Deck A (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus) + Deck B (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus)
  • DJControl Air +                Deck A (Bank 1 + Bank 2) + Deck B (Bank 1 + Bank 2)
  • DJConsole Rmx2             Deck A (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus) + Deck B (Pitch Bend Minus + Pitch Bend Plus)
= its plays instantly a Vegas Mode animation, and stops at the end of the animation

Non Stop Vegas Mode
  • DJControl Wave               Switch OFF the battery, press right deck SAMPLE button, connect the USB and keep the Sample button pressed down for a long time=>  Non stop Vegas Animation
  • Universal DJ                     Set Universal DJ on tablet mode, and plug the USB => Non stop Vegas animation
  • DJControl Jogvision          Press Left-deck Preview + Load A + Load B + Right-deck Preview => Instant Vegas animation, then 25 seconds off, then non stop Vegas Animation

Use a the same time the computer built-in sound card and the DJ controller audio in Mac OS

Pubblicato in data Tech Tips

When the DJ software audio setup menu lets you select 1 audio device while you wish to use 2 sound cards simultaneously, the solution in Mac OS is aggregating devices.
The aggregate device is 1 virtual sound card aggregating 2 (or more) sound cards.

Here is an example to play
- the mix on the Mac built-in sound card
- the preview on the headphones output of the DJ controller Universal DJ
- in Djuced 40 3.1.0, in Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite).

1) Connect your DJ Controller to the Mac computer.

2) Set your 2 sound cards at the same sampling rate
- In Mac OS top bar, go to Go > Utilities
- Run Audio MIDI Setup
- If you don't come directly to the Audio Devices menu, go to Window > Show Audio Devices
- Select your DJ Controller, check its audio format, for example 44100 Hz with Hercules Universal DJ


- Select Built-in Output, make sure the audio format is the same as in your DJ controller, 44100Hz (=44.1kHz)



3) Create an aggregate device
- at the left bottom corner of the Audio Devices window, you have a + sign: click on it, and select "Create Aggregate Device"

- You can let it called "Aggregate Device" or give to this device the name you want, for example " Aggregate - Computer & Universal"
- In the list of audio devices included in the Aggregate device, check in the Use column the 2 audio devices "Built-in Output" and Hercules Universal DJ

Leave Audio MIDI Setup.

4) Run Djuced 40
- Go to the Settings: click on the gear wheel on the right top corner

 - you reach the audio settings menu
  in Audio Device, select the name of your aggregate device
  in Master field, select Output 1&2
  in the headphones field, select Output 5&6 


Click on OK. In Djuced 40, you now play
- the mix on your computer built-in sound card,
- the preview in the headphones output of your Universal DJ.

P32 DJ Controller unveilled at 2016 NAMM Show

Pubblicato in data P32DJ

Anaheim, CA - January 21, 2016 - Hercules, a leader in mobile and professional DJ equipment, today announces at NAMM 2016, the company’s new innovative digital DJ Controller, the Hercules P32 DJ and powerful and recently updated, full, pro-version DJ companion software, DJUCEDTM 40°.

Specially designed for creative mixing and remixing, the combination of the Hercules P32 DJ and DJUCED 40° is unique, drawing its strength from the core of its two related, yet very different worlds; DJing and music production. The Hercules P32 DJ makes a simple promise to its users as an all-in-one solution, offering innovative, intuitive and visual functionalities, while allowing DJs to enrich their creativity.

"We see an entire new generation of DJ/producers who are less interested in traditional turntablism, but still looking for the ability to slice, mix and remix tracks while integrating samples," said Michael Peterson, Hercules US Marketing Manager. "Through its integration with the DJUCED 40° software, we’ve made it incredibly easy for everyone from the beginner DJ to the professional DJ to use the Hercules P32 DJ and excel while not being overwhelmed with advanced beat matching techniques."

 

 

A unique all-in-one controller, at the crossroads of DJing and performance
The uncompromising Hercules P32 DJ embodies the optimization of two sources of inspiration: an all-in-one controller, perfectly tailored for mixing, boasting two 16-pad grids with advanced DJ software, allowing DJs to follow the rhythm of their creativity.

 
The two decks each feature a dual-digit display for highlighting loop sizes, while also offering effect racks and cue buttons, as well as a central mixer, and direct access to all mixing functions. Hercules has also added 32-backlit pads for an ergonomic and visual use of the DJUCED 40° remix features including; sampler, slicer, loops and much more. Additionally, the Hercules P32 DJ features a 4-channel audio interface that lets users connect speakers and headphones for an all-in-one mixing solution.

The thrill of instant creative mixing: Play. Remix. Perform.
The Hercules P32 DJ represents complete harmony of a controller and DJ software to create a new category of DJ Performer.

 

The 32 ergonomic and reactive pads also offer great precision and convey a sense of quality. Combined with the intelligence of DJUCED 40°, these pads provide DJs with assistance and visual indicators to help keep their tracks’ rhythm and phrase intact, thanks to the quantization feature or the slip mode.

To perfect the experience, the solution is fully Plug & Play compatible, without requiring complex driver installation. Additionally, the DJUCED 40° software also features tracks and multiple sample packs that let DJs get started instantly.

Live the show. Develop an onstage presence
Being a DJ is much more than just technical skills and creating a playlist: it also involves the ability to put on a show. Hercules P32 DJ lets users develop their signature sound, and visual presentation, thanks to dynamic backlighting and scalable sample packs provided by DJUCED 40°.

Hercules P32DJ will be available from select retail partners as well as online at a suggested retail price of $249.99, beginning on March 3, 2016.

For those attending the NAMM Show, please stop by the booth, #5298, from January 21-24, 2016.
