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.
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.

Top Customer Reviews
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.
All of the buttons are really nice despite being constructed from plastic, they'll last quite a long time. The 4mx build quality overall is awesome, really sturdy (metal construction). The 4mx would suite a controllerist quite well as there are PLENTY of buttons to work with. If you're worried about the fx and only having one nob, don't be. Its been working flawlessly with the default fx setup in traktor.
Overall this controller is a great buy, I would suggest it to anyone looking for a solid kit.
Anyone looking to advance into the DJ world would be satisifed with this product. Very easy to set up. After an hour I was already mixing like a pro.
