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.
