The Hercules DJ Console 4-Mx is a large DJ controller with a durable metal casing, built-in audio, and large jog wheels. This all-in-one mixing station for the serious DJ features a 2-4 deck controller to mix digital audio tracks, 2 stereo outputs to play the mix for the audience and preview next track, and 2 stereo inputs to include turntables, MP3 or CD players in your mix. It's especially built for professional DJing: it's large enough for comfortable mixing, compact enough to transport to the gig, and there's no need for a separate audio interface.

Touch-Sensitive Jog Wheels

The two large 4.7" jog wheels feature weight sensors to detect the hand's weight on the jog wheel top, for fine adjustments during the mix. They're great for scratching and seeking within audio tracks.

While the track plays, you control the DJ software with two actions on the jog wheel: rotation, to control movement within the track, or press down to control scratching. Thus, during audio track playback, you can pitch bend, scratch, and start or stop playback, just like using a real vinyl scratching turntable.

Built-in Audio for Mobile and Club DJs

4-channel output gives you the flexibility of stereo line output for the mix, plus stereo headphone output for previewing tracks. A microphone input with talk-over function means there's no need to carry an audio interface. There are two independent stereo outputs on the rear panel, with four RCA connectors to connect to a stereo system or recorder as well as four 1/4" mono connectors to connect to a public address amplifier or speakers.

A ground lift switch on jack outputs 1-2 protects the sound in the event of a ground loop. A 1/4" headphone jack stereo output, located both on the top panel and on the front panel, plays the same channels as outputs 3-4 on the rear.

Two independent stereo inputs with 4 RCA connectors let you select the audio source type in the DJ Console 4-Mx control panel, including phono/consumer line/pro line/boost. Boost mode supports +8dBu signal level (for use with Pioneer CDJ players, for example). If the audio sources are vinyl turntables at phono level, you can connect the turntables’ ground cables to the DJ Console 4-Mx’s grounding screw.

A 1/4" microphone jack mono input, located on both the top panel and the front panel, can be set as a talk-over source (default mode), so the microphone is played on outputs 1-2 over the music in the background, using the music attenuation level set in the DJ Console 4-Mx control panel (0dB, -3dB, -6dB or -9dB). Or set it as a standard source, replacing inputs 1-2. The DJ Console 4-Mx pre-amplifies the microphone input by up to +34dB.

2- and 4-Deck Control (A/B/C/D)

2 deck controls plus 2 deck switches convert deck A into C, and deck B into D, letting you control 4 virtual decks. Deck switches convert all deck controls into another set of MIDI commands, plus mixer volume and EQ controls. Deck viewers light up the letter of the controlled deck, while the backlighting color of jog wheels changes to indicate which virtual deck is being controlled.

User-Friendly Features

The DJ software included with the Hercules DJ Console 4-Mx suggests cue points in the audio file analysis, getting you mixing and producing quickly. Synchronize tracks using pitch encoders and/or sync buttons, and create automatic loops on 1, 2, 4 or 8 beats. Add effects to customize your music, then record your mixes as audio files.

I've had this a few weeks now and i must say i'm greatly satisfied. easy to set up and works extremely well. The user manual is less than useless however. I have been a dedicated user of virtualdj and was looking for a controller that minimizes connections, portable, economic yet powerful, attractive, durable, and has a built in sound card. The 4-MX satisfies most of my needs. The upgrade of the jogwheels are accepted, however, the is still that feeling of non immediate response with it which can be improved, (nothing can beat an actual turntable). This piece of hardware has actually allowed me to perform remixes and mashups that are on par or even surpass those that other DJ's do using more expensive equipment and Serato. Basically, you have a digital library of music and looking for hardware to dj using your pc, whether it be desktop or laptop, 4-mx is the way to go. even if you have older equipment, it is a great upgrade. being a midi controller means that you can use time coded vinyls if your a turntablist. The built in sound card means that it is exactly like any other professional mixer in terms of input output connectivity. Being USB powered means easy connectivity...go to the club pull out you laptop, plug the mixer to it via usb and the output to the club's mixer and you're up and running when you power your laptop. the default software is good, however, virtualdj 7 pro is amazing and allows you to be competitve with even the best serato users at an affordable rate, would recommend to anyone at a beginner level to advanced.

I would just like to say my experience purchasing this product was great! It was delivered on time as stated on the expected shipping. I thought it would come in on the last arrival day, however it showed up early on the first expected delivery date. Since I was anxious I tracked it all the way through and was surprised to see it shipped the same day I ordered it, within a couple hours from my purchase time.

The product is amazing so far! Best console I have used to date. It may not be ready right out of the box for some deejays, but for me the configurations are okay for now. Even when messing with the settings rest assured that if you are not satified with them or if you re-arrange what buttons do when pushed, you can always hit the default button and you're back.

The jog wheels are just as described, touch sensitive and can take a beating. They are able to be pushed down incase you have heavy hands when scratching. I have not changed the latency settings to get the best possible scratching yet, however out of the box they are fine. If you are a turntablist I would definately watch some youtube videos to read up on some better configuration settings for this area. These are the best jog wheels made on a Hercules Controller. The top of them are not cd size though, slightly smaller. If you put a cd on top of one of the jogs maybe the overall size around the rubberized part is equal in size to a cd.

Overall I'm satisfied with all aspects of this controller. It is light in weight and extremely portable for those of us on the go, however it packs a punch and all the buttons are laid out very nicely. If you are looking for a great combination of effects with the mixer on a dj controller this is it! Kill switches, rotary knobs and interchangable effects on buttons make this one stand out by far!

If you are thinking of getting a RMX or 4Set I would suggest holding out for this one instead.

I am a professional DJ who does a lot of gigs everywhere, beacause of this i needed a MIDI controller and DJ console system that i can use on the road. I spent some time researching on the specs and features of the available DJ controllers and finally decided to take a ride on the Hercules DJ Console 4Mx. it's rock solid in built, easy to set-up,very familiar with the usual CDJ features so it's very easy to get into getting the controls work, plus it's flexible on what DJ software programs you want to use...i use it both for VDJ Pro 7 and Traktor Scratch Pro 2.Plus very affordable compared to other brands offering almost just the same features.The downside here is that the 4MX is a 4 channel controller but presents only 2 channel physically and would require switching between decks A to C and B to D to avail of this feature, i find that quite inconvenient compared to Controllers that actually have 4 channels controls right there in the tip of your fingers. Another thing is that it depends solely on the USB bus for it's power resources and had the tendency to shut down or your pc will hang/freeze if you overpowered the gains on the channels if you need more volume since it sucks down all the power from the USB source that can only deliver 500mAmps. And lastly, it does not have a Booth out/ Monitor out and a seperate volume control for this, but alternatively, i just use the 1/4" jack output for this purpose and use the RCA out for my master volumes. And FINALLY, nevertheless inspite of the downsides, it's still a good DJ console MIDI controller for it's price !Hercules DJ Console 4-MX
