The stylish, gorgeous design features glossy decks, a brushed mixer, rubber on caps, and orange backlights. View larger

The Instinct is as powerful as it is easy to use. Its two pressure-detecting jog wheels let you scratch without any latency, scroll within tracks, and control the Pitch Bend function. DJControl Instinct is the only controller in its category to feature built-in audio outputs, including two RCA outputs and one 3.5mm headphone output. This makes it easy for DJs to play their mix on amplified PA system speakers, on a hi-fi system, or on multimedia speakers.

Includes DJUCED DJ Software

The Instinct comes with DJUCED--function-rich software for both beginners and advanced DJs. Its user-friendly design gets you started mixing in just minutes: the controller and the software fit perfectly together. Instantly view the beats, track lengths, and which songs fit well for the next track to be played. Set the pitch intuitively or sync automatically for smooth transitions. Customize your songs with loops, effects and samples.

Get even more creative and craft your own sound with filters or the step sequencer. Save your mix in audio files you can share with your friends, or import into other projects.

DJ Control Surface

The Instinct is born to mix. An intuitive layout means the mixer and deck areas are clearly differentiated--the structure has the look and feel of 2 DJ CD players and a mixer. Scratch tracks with no latency on pressure-detecting jog wheels. Tweak your songs with hot cue, samples, loops and effects keys.

The stylish, gorgeous design features glossy decks, a brushed mixer, rubber on caps, and orange backlights show the status of the controls.

DJ Audio Interface

There are plenty of options to mix and preview outputs. Play the mix on the rear panel outputs, with 2 formats for the mix: 2 RCA and a 1/8" stereo mini-jack output. It's powerful enough for both hi-fi systems and PA system speakers. Since both output formats play simultaneously, you can connect the RCA outputs to a PA system and the 1/8" mini-jack to DJ booth speakers.

You can also preview output on the front panel, with a 1/8" stereo mini-jack output for headphones. Headphone controls are on the controller, including cue select and volume. The Instinct is compatible with headphones from 32 to 600 ohms.

Great for small parties with friends etc. I have some pro gear really more for twisting knobs and hitting buttons and generally looking more like a DJ with the ability to create some of my own music. It,s great but really heavy and bulky. That being said for a hundred bucks the Instinct comes out of the box ready to kick! Awesome! Simply plug in make up your setlist and watch everyone bounce! The sync feature is flawless and if you have an idea of what spins naturally sound great together in your setlist you're in for a great night. Also the Instinct, your laptop and some good quality portable speakers can all fit into a backpack and your off to the plane, party, beach wherever. I definatley recommend it for anyone who wants to impress at basement parties etc.

This device mixes like a full size mixer and is smaller than a 15 inch laptop in total diagonal. The best features are the knobs which are raised and incrementally increase in height from bass knob to treble knob allowing for easy switching between the EQ adjusters. Switching between loops samples effects and cues is smart but not if you want to do both at the same time. Overall satisfaction. HERCULES DELIVERS!

I had some trouble making my computer (with windows 7) recognize this DJ controller I had some drivers issues even when dowloading the last ones.
But I after I got it working and playing with it for a couple of days now, I must admit it's an excellent controller. It has basic features like loops, effects, samples and cues and pitch and volume controls. I think it's an excellent tool to get introduce yourself to this DJ'ing world before upgrading to a more serious one.
For me one of the basic features is the headphone pres listening, that is basic if you want to improvise.

Maybe a reason why my experience with this controller is so positive is because I don't use the default software but I use Virtual DJ instead. There are plenty videos on youtube that explains how to map this DJ controller with Virtual DJ

Love this thing. Very small and portable, setup was very easy, although I still can't figure out why I can't use my headphone jack to listen to what I'm mixing on the other side but I think that is my DJ program Traktor. This is great to learn how to DJ on. Not really essential for live performances since it doesn't have FX knobs and so forth.

I knew nothing about Digital DJ'ing before I purchased this controller. I simply wanted to break into the market with an All in One device for cheap. This controller fit my needs perfectly at the time and I am very happy with my purchase.

The software is free and serves beginner DJ's well. In my experience with the Mixtrack Pro and this controller the software is easier to grasp on the Instinct by a fair margin. The jog wheels are effective for minimalist mixing but cant hold their own for any scratching needs. The lack of effect knobs are what limits the controller. For mixing purposes there is a definite need for effect parameter knobs and the fact that they absent is frustrating. After a solid 6 months of DJ'ing with this controller a DJ will want a customizable, more featured, controller. The software and lack of effect knobs kills the controllers long term value for more serious DJ's but it functions as a perfect model for the beginner DJ who is skeptical about breaking into the field.

this product is great for any begining dj, it fit in my backpack for easy mobility but its biggest downfall is no prefader vu meters or gain knobs, and the fx in tracktor were difficult to control due to the minimalist nature of the board. this is a great product for bedroom djs or house partys, but i would not recomend using this in a professional enviroment ie. club or music festival

The item's 3.5mm headphone socket on all 3 replaced items have a problem, you have to spin the headphone jack to get the normal sound quality, otherwise the sound is distorted. I don't even bother with replacing anymore because I've tried twice and the quality of the item is still the same.

For a beginner, I can't imagine something cheaper and better than this controller. The software has a few hiccups (song selecting in particular took a moment to grasp) but everything else is very intuitive and responsive.
