Mobility and Stability for Production and Live Performances
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!
Dedicated Software for Optimum Digital DJing Control
The Hercules DJ Console Rmx comes with VirtualDJ 5 DJC Edition, the reference in the DJing world for PC, now also available for Mac. VirtualDJ 5 DJC Edition instantly connects to the console. The software includes features and settings specific to the Hercules DJ Console Rmx, and combines the power of the VirtualDJ mixing engine with the ergonomics of the Hercules DJ Console Rmx.
The Hercules DJ Console Rmx is a MIDI controller and therefore compatible with other MIDI-controlled software applications.
Compatible With Standard DJing Digital Music Libraries
The Hercules DJ Console Rmx enables DJs to mix the music files stored on their PC or Mac in the following formats: MP3, AIFF, WAV, WMA, OGG & CD Audio, as well as the iTunes library.

Now if you like to scratch records I wouldn't use this unit for that. I think the unit is great for straight music mixing, looping beats and sound effects. Oh yeah. I forgot to mention that when you upgrade the Virtual DJ software that comes with the RMX Console to Virtual DJ Pro you can mix music videos as well.
It doesn't come with any guidance on how to use it (I guess it assumes you know what you're doing on your own), so I'm not really any better at mixing stuff, but it's definitely high quality. It's made of sturdy materials, the buttons feel good under my fingers and the turntables have grips and turn easily.
The one thing that's unfortunate about it is that it doesn't have a dedicated button to switch between a pair of decks. To elaborate - the new version of Deckadance features four decks instead of just the two it had when I bought the RMX, so I'm rather out of luck making use of that second pair of decks until FL makes me a software workaround mapping (and I re-purpose another of the keys on the board).
Otherwise, it's a great board and definitely recommended for the novice prepared to learn how to actually use it elsewhere.
The Hercules RMX works with serato Scratch live for all those who like that software. Almost all buttons sliders and knobs double up as a MIDI controller, making adjustments with your DAW a breeze! keeping you mixing, and not mousing! ALSO, if you are having problems with latency with your DAW, you can set it up with ASIO and it will lower your latency by a very noticeable amount.
mixing is very easy to do if you do not know how, because the manual gives you the basics, and the beatmatch is CAKE (although please learn how to properly).
I love how small it is! because i take mine everywhere! it makes it really easy when playing at clubs, because you don't have to worry about what kind of mixer they have, because you are using your own, with all your own customized buttons, and effects, so you play live on the very thing you practiced with.
Great thing for mobile DJs because once again, it is small, but you have all the things you need to do great transitions from song to song. and the effects are awesome too! and if you get the better version of Virtual DJ you can get even more effects.
UPDATE: so i am updating my review now that i have owned it for more than two years, i have NEVER had a failure! still works 100% and i would advise anyone no matter the skill level to purchase one if you are looking to get into the MIDI controller world, it really does open up so many more options to mixing, your live sets, as well as enhances studio performance, and saves tons of time because you wont be glued to the mouse all day!
Since this product has an integrated sound card, when trying to configure to the PC everything sound related to the system went crazy, had to reboot quite a few times, download additional software and drivers to make it work. When it did work, the output quality was awfull!!!, even though i have a relative good and expensive sound system (a mix between Cambridge Audio, Polk and Klipsch). But... when configured with the mac, it was a breeze. Even though i had to update the drivers to make it work, it only took me 3-5 minutes to do and... the range of the output was outstanding right out of the box.
Coming to the product specs, it fits all my needs. The buttons, when pushed/turned, do have a delay if you are into pro DJing (bout 1/2 a sec) which is enough to make you go for a different model, but the target of this line of products is for us, music lovers who like to fool around mixing different tunes as we please. The configurable 1-6 buttons are really easy to learn and manage, thumbs up for that one.
The other issue at hand is the program it comes with (VirtualDJ)... in plain and simple words, it sucks, even though they have put some work into the interface.
