DeeJay TRIM 4&6, the new audio interface by Hercules, tailored for DJs

Musikmesse, Frankfurt, April 1st, 2009 - Hercules, a pioneer in the world of digital audio mixing solutions for PC, is currently extending its professional range with an audio interface specifically designed for DJs: Hercules Deejay Trim 4&6.

Its features include: 
- 4 preamplified inputs, each featuring a view-meter
- Two modes: a 4-input/4-output mode and a 2-input /6-output mode 
- A built-in 3-port USB 2.0 hub supplied by an external power adapter
- A steel casing to handle the most intensive uses.

The genuine essence of technology and connectivity, it perfectly meets all DJs requirements, while offering exemplary stability.

Come and visit us at Hercules booth D11, Hall 5.0 at the Musikmesse fair in Frankfurt, from April 1st to 4th, and be among the first to discover our latest innovation!

Audio performance and connectivity dedicated to DJing
Building on its expertise as a designer of integrated audio interfaces, Hercules has created and tailored this new solution for DJs. It features a 4-input / 4-output configuration that can be switched to a 2-input / 6-output configuration, allowing users to export their mix to an external mixing device.
For easy integration to DJing gear, the device’s 4 Line or Phono inputs can receive the audio signal from CD or MP3 players (Line input) or turntables (Phono input) and mix this audio contents with music files stored on the computer.
An additional feature: the preamplification on inputs is adjustable using two rotary potentiometers allowing fine adjustment of the volume at the inputs, to fade high-level sources (e.g. some CD players) or amplify weaker audio sources as turntables.
The Hercules Deejay Trim 4&6 features 4 audio output channels: Two +4dBu ¼" Jack outputs for Public Address equipment and four -10dBv RCA outputs for mixing decks and conventional amplifiers. The 6 output mode enables users to transfer 2 stereo tracks separately to an external mixing deck, while playing on the third stereo track samples, loops and effects.
In addition to these inputs and outputs, a microphone connector with a talk-over feature, a headphones connector with a volume switch and a channel selector (channels 3&4 for monitoring and channels 1&2 to listen to the mix) are included.

Great versatility
Featuring a 3-port high-speed USB 2 hub, the Hercules Deejay Trim 4&6 can connect to a DJing controller or an external storage device (e.g. a USB key or a hard disk drive). The included power adapter prevents any variation in the sound level that might be generated by fluctuations in the computer’s USB bus electrical supply.
The Hercules audio interface features 4 view-meters, 1 per channel, to see the level of each channel (6 LEDs per channel) and identify any connectivity issue.

Intuitive and robust
Thanks to its steel casing, the Hercules Deejay Trim 4&6 can withstand intensive use and mesh seamlessly with other DJing equipment. Two handles mounted on the audio interface’s front face allow users to hold the device easily. Hercules has grouped all connectors at the back of the device (except the microphone and headphones connectors and 1 USB port), in order to make connectivity features accessible; these remain well-ordered, without encumbering both sides of the device, and reduce the risk of irritating cable entanglements. 4 wide non-slip pads guarantee perfect stability, even with heavy cables connected at the back of the device.
The view-meters, visible on the front panel, offer convenient control over the audio interface’s volume, whether mixing standing or seated - and even if CD cases are stacked on the unit.

This innovative DJing audio interface by Hercules will be available end of June 2009, at the suggested retail price of $249.99
