There are many PC programs on the market for DJs. The problem has been that it’s awkward using a mouse to control all the functions. DJ Console is Hercules’ solution to the problem. The unit contains most of the dials and functions found on professional DJ equipment. Impressive as the array of controls is, a “kill” button beside each of the tone-control knobs would have been nice.
Hercules supplies a variety of programs to let you exploit DJ Console fully. The company is also working to add support for Native Instruments’ highly popular Traktor program. During our test period, Hercules put out an additional program, called MixVibes 5, which can be downloaded from its website. BPM Studio announced during the test period that it, too, now supports DJ Console. This is one of the most popular DJ programs for PCs, and the demo version we downloaded worked very well.
We also got a message from Hercules that a MAC version is coming out in June this year.
