Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It does look nice and professional, especially if you use the stand at least.
DJUICED is better than Serato so I don't regret my purchase that much.
Since he is not a professional though, we won't be able to review this fully in more technical terms and aspects.
However, the setup was a breeze, the software that comes with it has an intuitive, not too complicated UI that he was able to get used to pretty quickly. The controls are all very responsive and smooth operating.
The lights are pretty bright and the whole thing doesn't seem cheap. It has a good weight to it and seems well constructed.
I will update this review after he plays around with it for a bit longer.
What I Like:
Top of the line - this is the top series of the Hercules line of DJ controllers with more features and value than the 200 or 300.
Comes with both DJUCED ( also provided for the 200 & 300 AND Serato DJ Lite Software. In essence, you connect your PC or MAC to the DJ Controller and your controller to the sound system input that you are using. Mixing has come a long way from crates of vinyl and multiple turntables and large mixing panels. Just your laptop, this portable board and a small PA speaker and you have a party!
Unit is very well made - it has weight and a solid fell to the unit. it has dual 5" jog wheels for scratching, a 3-band EQ, Filter, a Gain Master volume, headphones volume, a VU-meter for each deck, a master VU-meter, as well as headphones source selection (deck 1, deck 2, master, cue-to-mix). The 2x8 soft pads have really cool RGB lighting as well - makes the board glow nicely in a dark room. There are also 4 effect buttons in the center of the mixer, that are linked to the filter knobs.
Honestly there are many features that I will likely never use but that I imagine a professional DJ would really appreciate!
Software setup was easy as well as making the connections. I was mixing in no time!
I look forward to having fun with this unit - if you are a professional then I'm sure you will appreciate the quality and multiple features offered as well.
I played with some DJ software about 10 years ago and have a music background, so I figured I would be able to pick it up over time. Thanks to the many tutorials online, I have had a blast slowly but surely learning to use the DJ controller.
The build of the DJ controller is really nice. It has a metal face plate instead of plastic, which is nice for this price level. The dials, button, crossfader, and jog wheels are all very receptive and turn smoothly. The LED lights are bright and colorful. I like the lights that shine underneath the controller, which give it a cool glow emitting from below the controller. There are a variety of modern inputs and outputs, so you probably don’t need to worry about having the right connections.
I was pretty lost after downloading the software but I found a few tutorials online which made the basics easy to understand. There is still a lot I don’t understand yet, but practice makes perfect, and I plan to keep up with it. The best feature for me is the “beat match” which will indicate if your beats are off when blending songs. If you want more features, you will need to upgrade to a more premium software but as this is intended for beginners, it good to focus on the basics first before moving on.
Overall, I have really enjoyed using this so far. My intention is to make my own music, rather than using this to perform as a DJ. I’ll be sure to continue to update my reviews as I progress with any additional insights.
Top reviews from other countries
I am giving it only 4-stars because of the software. Djuced is lacking a lot in effects and Serato Lite is almost useless for beginners to develop DJing skills unless you pay for the pro version.
