The Hercules DJ Console Rmx has been designed to enable mobile DJs as well as club and studio DJs to mix digital music. This "nomadic" device simply connects to the USB port of a PC or Mac laptop. Broad enough in size to allow DJs to mix with unrivalled ease and precision, it is also compact enough to follow users to any event--its measurements (35 x 25 cm) are equivalent to those of a laptop computer.
For live mixing and seamless integration with the DJ's professional environment, the DJ Console Rmx features a solid metal casing and non-slip pads guaranteeing perfect stability. Adding to its stability, the device boasts flawless drivers thanks to the competence of the company's Canadian R&D division and to the expertise acquired by the team over 20 years of experience in computer-assisted audio processing.
Designed for Precise, Swift Mixing
The Hercules DJ Console RMX offers DJs precision and speed in all their moves, thanks to 2 ultra-precise jog wheels for moving within tracks and for scratching, 12 rotary switches, 46 push-buttons, 6 faders--including pitch faders with a center detent--plus an innovative and convenient general volume fader. The roomy layout of the controls allows DJs to perfect fumble-free mixes. Indeed, the controls are designed for quick and intuitive use; DJs will find their marks quickly, allowing them to focus their full attention and ability to the music and the dance floor.
Built-in Audio Interface With Specialized DJing Audio Features
As an expert in the design of audio interfaces, Hercules determined that the integration of an audio interface featuring 4 inputs and 4 outputs on the Hercules DJ Console Rmx was both obvious and essential. The interface grants access to unique features such as:
- 4 audio outputs offering:
- Maximum sound over 4 mono 1/4-inch jack outputs, outputting +4dBu for PA equipment,
- Audio output levels at -10dBv over 4 RCA outputs, for connecting consumer devices (hi-fi systems, recording devices etc.)
- Simple integration to the DJ's equipment by means of 2 stereo analog inputs enabling users to mix, via the DJ software, external sources with digital music; the console also features a phono/line-level selector on each input, ideal for connecting turntables, CD or MP3 players and rhythm boxes.
- Microphone (with talk-over feature) and headset (for preview feature) connectors are accessible on the console's upper face and front face, enabling DJs to use the console with unrivalled ease, whether in a flight case, on a DJ stand or on a tabletop!

Top Customer Reviews
The Hercules RMX the best entry to mid-level midi controller on the market for those looking to get into the world of mixing. While pricier than other controllers, the RMX has the most and best amount of software options to choose from. The Hercules may be somewhat difficult for beginners to set-up right out of the box, but once you do, playing is a breeze. The RMX comes with Virtual DJ software specifically mapped for the product, so you automatically can start to enjoy mixing your music library. Not only that, you are also given a carry-on bag, and lengthy instruction manual on the basics of scratching and mixing. You'll be on your way to hosting parties in no time.
The Hercules RMX is a multi-faceted midi controller used to control software dj programs such as Virtual DJ, Traktor, or for use in live mixes like Ableton live. It comes with a metal casing, and is a dedicated soundcard, having four input / output plugs. The RMX doesn't come with any type of additional connectors besides the usb cable, so you will have to provide your own stereo jacks.
The controller can be set up for any type of gig. You can run your vinyl turntables or CD players through it, and have multiple outputs, so you can mix at a venue while broadcasting live on radio or internet stream. The buttons can be configured to have little to no lag between interfaces, and the jog wheels can be used to do various DJ scratching. Do NOT expect to scratch like a pro on the jog wheels, they are no substitute for actual vinyl.
The most important thing about the RMX are the drivers, and thankfully Hercules has updated them for windows 7 and Mac compatibility. Many midi controllers on the market selling still are only Vista capable, so be wary of other products like this. They also have a huge support forum, and an excellent customer service record. Expect that if you're having problems, you can google the issue and find the answer.
The RMX comes with Virtual DJ Basic. The software is subpar, and you're probably better off using programs like Traktor or Abelton, which give you more freedom with effects and midi mapping. Those products cost money, so expect to shell out another 400 dollars for a good version of the software.
I am not unhappy for the amount I spent.
It's construction is rugged.
Looks great, feels great.
But keep the following in mind when purchasing:
1) The "kill" buttons DO NOT HAVE LEDs! Supposedly this is to save power over USB, but it nearly makes these buttons useless.
2) The jog-wheels do not really have inertia like say on the Vestax VCI-300. They do work very well for making fine adjustments.
3) The mixer is not really a mixer. They're just controls that bind/pair with the software. So you may be unhappy with the detail of their response. A REAL analog knob control, will have more finite control over levels.
4) The bundled version of Virtual DJ (Console) is old and simply horrible. I can't imagine using it. Even if you get over the crappy skin they give you, the software's responsiveness and usability is just not as good as the later versions. Be sure to see which up to date versions support using a console. Once I upgraded, it was a very usable and happy experience.
How I'm using it:
I have a touch screen laptop/tablet, this console, and a set of headphones.
It's primary value comes from being a dual sound card and console in one. I don't use all the features of the console, but it does make a difference to be able to touch knobs and physical levers versus being forced to use the tablet input.
