For ambitious climbers: Hercules DJ DJControl Inpulse 500

Hercules DJ's new DJ controller DJControl 500 wants you to become a stage star from bedroomer . Professional layout, extensive equipment and the supplied software want to guarantee this.

For this reason, the new performance controller was redesigned from scratch. It was equipped with more interfaces and a Velvet Sound DSP from AKM for signal processing. The Inpulse 500 is delivered with the software DJUCED 5 and Serato DJ Lite . It thus supports the streaming offers from TIDAL, Soundcloud, Beatport LINK and Qobuz Streaming (Serato / DJUCED).

Hercules DJ DJControl Inpulse 500: Connections and equipment
The system has jacks / cinch inputs and outputs and two headphone jacks . In addition, the manufacturer integrated feet with a height of approximately 40 mm and LED lighting, under which a surge of overturned soft drinks should flow without complaint. An auxiliary input with filter control can also be found on the back panel . Here you can connect an external player . Smartphone, Groovebox, iPad - also in step with DJUCED 5 using Ableton Link .

Hercules DJ DJControl Inpulse 500: mixer and performance tools
The mixer is well equipped with three-band EQ , several FX mixers , large knobs , crossfader switch and meaningful level meters . Also interesting: The LED rings around Aux and Mike show potential overrides in traffic light color codes. The deck sections with the large jog wheels also present themselves tidy .

For beginners and advanced DJs, integrated video tutorials, track recommendations as well as key color keys and a beat-align functions come to the aid. If you have been playing with controllers for a while, you should enjoy the numerous performance tools, pad sections and effects .

From bedroomer to stage star?
I think Hercules has a hot iron in the fire with his new DJ controller. Both the design and the many creative possibilities as well as the extensive inputs and outputs should reach the target group. Hercules also has a pretty good DJUCED 5 , its own DJ software at the start, which convinces with streaming, good track management and an attractive GUI as well as solid performance.

Especially if you as a bedroomer - and Hercules looks back on several years of focusing on the entry-level market - want to take the next step and put your first live performance in front of an audience in the pub, neighborhood bar or at the party. In any case, it should not be due to the hardware and the included software package.
