Hercules launches new and innovative DJ solutions to get you started mixing!


Rennes, September 27, 2018

Hercules is driven by its passion for music and its desire to bring DJing to the masses, now more than ever before, and is proud to announce its new range of DJControl Inpulse controllers and the new and improved version of its DJ software, DJUCED®. Specially designed to introduce and teach the art of DJing, Hercules' promise is clear: a new and innovative solution that will simplify the beginner's journey and allow him/her to easily acquire and master DJ skills.

For this launch, Hercules teamed up with emerging artist Stupead and his musical creations:


DJing for all
The mood is set. Hercules is adding a new dimension to learning how to become a DJ by focusing on the importance of training one's ear. The first technique that all professional or aspiring DJs must have mastered is beatmatching. The most important rule of mixing is to match the tempo of two tracks so that they can be played in a seamless sequence without breaking the rhythm. That's why Hercules has developed a unique range of two controllers: the HERCULES DJCONTROL INPULSE 200 and the HERCULES DJCONTROL INPULSE 300 which are equipped with a "beatmatch guide". If it is enabled, the help arrows along the tempo fader and below the jog wheel will light up to guide the budding young DJ through the right steps to take.
  Step 1: Activate beatmatch guide
 Step 2: Follow the arrow on the tempo (pitch) fader to adjust the tempo
 Step 3: Follow the arrow below the jog-wheel to align the beat on the beat of the other track

This valuable aid for getting started in DJing is powered by DJUCED® DJ software, which also includes interactive help and video tutorials from the Hercules DJ Academy to teach you the basics of DJing and improve your skills. It provides direct and intuitive access without ever exiting the software. Convenience guaranteed.
 

Please note that DJUCED® 40° has been renamed DJUCED®, effective from September 27, 2018. The new version of DJUCED® features a more intuitive and comprehensive interface, with an easy-to-use and smoother workflow for beginners and advanced users alike. All controllers that previously ran on DJUCED® 18° will continue to work, but the DJUCED® team recommends that you download the new version of DJUCED® in order to take advantage of the new update. All controllers will now work with DJUCED®. For more information: Djuced.com.

The perfect mix

The second key advantage of the new DJ Hercules solutions is the Intelligent Music Assistant (IMA) that was developed by the R&D team. IMA makes it easy for all DJs to decide on the best song to play, whether they are learning or performing:

The "TRENDING SONGS" feature available exclusively from DJUCED® uses the software's artificial intelligence to reveal tomorrow's hottest songs to help you prepare your new playlists and make sure you mix what's "in".
  
    
ASSISTANT: suggests the best songs from your computer audio library.

ENERGY: allows you to select the perfect atmosphere for the party and infuse it with the kind of energy you want. The energy level is displayed in a color going from blue (a cooler atmosphere) to red (a warm and very danceable atmosphere), which can set the desired mood at any point in the evening.

Hercules DJControl Inpulse 300


The flagship of the new range that includes all the new features described is the DJControl Inpulse 300, the largest controller ever designed by Hercules. It allows you to easily and quickly learn the right moves in order to mix with confidence and ensure a real performance. It’s got everything you need to become a DJ:
  • Large jog wheels (5.9” /15 cm): touch-sensitive to facilitate scratching
  • 16 pads: 8 modes on each deck (Hot Cue, Roll, Slicer, Sampler, Toneplay and others)
  • Slip, Quantize, Loop in and Loop out buttons
  • Tempo/Pitch fader
  • Gain knob, 3-band equalization knobs and a filter knob
  • Volume faders and cross fader
  • VU meter on each deck and a master VU meter
  • Master output for speakers and headphones output

Hercules DJControl Inpulse 200



The DJControl Inpulse 200 is a more compact version than its big brother, with a user-friendly and comfortable layout that makes it the perfect controller for those who are new to DJing.
  • Jog wheel: touch-sensitive for scratch mode
  • 4 pads: 4 modes (Hot Cue, Roll, FX, Sampler)
  • Loop in/Loop out buttons
  • Tempo/Pitch fader
  • Gain knobs, 2-band equalization knobs and filter knob
  • Volume fader and cross fader
  • Master output for speakers and headphone output

A comprehensive ecosystem to get you started
When it comes to mixing, it's important to have the right equipment, even for beginners. That's why Hercules has introduced a new range of active monitoring speakers with the Hercules DJMonitor 32 and Hercules DJMonitor 42. They are powerful, and ensure a near studio experience so that everyone can get off to a good start and enjoy mixing, whether in their bedroom or at their first events.


The DJControl Inpulse 300 and DJControl Inpulse 200 will be available for sale from October 23, 2018.
Recommended retail price – DJControl Inpulse 300 €199.99
Recommended retail price – DJControl Inpulse 200 €99.99

  • Full authentication and unlimited feature-access will be available free
  • Early access to Cakewalk by BandLab is available now on Windows

SINGAPORE, 4 APRIL 2018 — Today, BandLab Technologies launched early access to ‘Cakewalk by BandLab’ – replacing SONAR, the iconic DAW developed by Cakewalk Inc.

The revived DAW includes all core premium features of SONAR Platinum such as the award-winning Skylight user interface, flexible ProChannel modules, and powerful end-to-end 64-bit mix engine.

CEO of BandLab Technologies, Meng Ru Kuok said, “We are excited to be able to continue development of SONAR in its new guise as Cakewalk by BandLab and have an aggressive feature development roadmap ahead. We are making the software completely free to use to ensure that anyone, regardless of their resources, technology or stage in their career, can have access to the highest level of professional music production tools.

We are very excited by the potential of Cakewalk by BandLab and think that many creators will benefit from access to a professional DAW with a long history of empowering music makers.”

Cakewalk by BandLab will continue SONAR’s track record of world-leading innovation for creatives using Microsoft Windows. Pete Brown, from Microsoft’s Windows and Devices Group, said “We’re thrilled that Cakewalk has found a new home with a company that understands the musician community, and that cares sincerely about digital audio production. Cakewalk has been a great partner, working to make their DAW better for their customers by quickly adopting new Windows features like pen, Bluetooth MIDI, multi-touch, Dial, and more. We look forward to working closely with BandLab to continue this innovation.” Cakewalk by BandLab will support pen, touch and Surface Dial throughout the user interface.

The Windows version of Cakewalk by BandLab is available to download now. For more information visit https://cakewalk.bandlab.com.

Note to Editor

Cakewalk by BandLab is a streamlined version of SONAR Platinum – and certain third party products and content bundles will no longer be included. Existing users who have already purchased bundles or individual third party products and plug-ins can still use those products with Cakewalk by BandLab.

  • The new installation of Cakewalk by BandLab via BandLab Assistant will not affect previous installations of SONAR.
  • All users can download Cakewalk by BandLab and access the full feature set for free, without access limitations.
  • Any bundled or independently purchased plug-ins or add-ons that worked with SONAR will integrate with Cakewalk by BandLab.
