Flagship

Hercules represents with its flagship DJControl Inpulse 500. This 2-deck controller provides everything any ambitious DJ will need. Two jog wheels allow for precise time manipulation and search within each deck track, both in vinyl and CD modes. In addition to the two channels for the decks, an aux and a microphone channel are both added, so that nothing will stand in the way of creative performances. The mixer is equipped with a traditional three-band EQ and of course a staple DJ filter. Both channels can be monitored separately via cue mix. On top of that, eight performance pads per channel allow samples and loops to be fired at will.

All-round control

The Hercules DJControl Inpulse 500 is a classic all-in-one DJ controller - this means it does not itself produce the sound, but rather provides a haptic and intuitive interface that works in conjunction computer-based DJ software, which will play the music from a computer. Included in the bundle is DJUCED, the impressive proprietary software which Hercules has developed in-house. The Inpulse 500 also works seamlessly with the well-established software Serato DJ Pro. In addition, the DJControl Inpulse 500 acts as the main audio interface, so that all interaction with the DJ controller is concentrated in one place once the music gets going - because nothing is more distracting than having to constantly inspect what is going on with the computer when in the middle of a performance.

Upwards ambition

Until now, Hercules had produced mainly entry-level devices in its DJControl Inpulse series - and the Inpulse 500 retains all these beginner-friendly qualities. However the Inpulse 500 is aiming for the top. Its full-size jog wheels and performance possibilities needn’t hide behind the competition in terms of hardware and functionality. In addition, the compatibility of the inpulse 500 with Serato DJ Pro allows users to upgrade to professional grade DJ software seamlessly if they so wishes. The Inpulse 500 is not only a good controller for beginners, it will easily see you through your first gigs and never let you down.

About Hercules

French manufacturer Hercules has been making all kinds of affordable audio equipment for over 30 years. The choice ranges from pro audio speakers and headphones to gaming accessories. However, the focus is currently on entry-level DJ equipment. Hercules knows how to produce well-designed equipment at impressively low prices, while always keeping beginners in mind. For example, specific models of DJ controllers come with tutorial functions that help budding DJs learn correct beat-matching and other essential DJ skills.

Helping hands for budding DJs

A good selling point of Hercules controllers to newcomers is the ‘beat match guide’ functionality. LED lights inform the DJ in real time whether a track needs to be sped up or slowed down in order to match the master deck. Minimal increments are indicated, and this function can be disabled at any time. The ‘Beat Align’ indicator under each deck indicates whether the tracks are in sync, or out of “lock”. This can be a great tool for developing the ear, as well as rhythm and tempo, since beatmatching requires some practice - and is not learnt overnight. Of course, any help function can also be disabled at any time.

Mid range pricetag = mid range quality
DiMMaX, 02.05.2021
Don't get me wrong, this is a very nice mixing console.
But it clearly is aimed at mid range quality. A bit light and the plastic feel is a bit uhm, cheap feeling for this price range...

Under the retractable legs there is a backlight - it's cool.
There is no perceptible middle on the pitch fader. You have to focus only on the indicator light.
The audio card is of a low class. High frequencies are very high and low frequencies are not enough. In General, the sound did not please.
In General, the controller is on a solid C grade. Let's see how it behaves over time.

¡¡¡IMPRESIONANTE!!!
R3DB4CK, 13.07.2020
Con la boca abierta, es una controladora DJ muy funcional, por el precio que cuesta y ofrece una cantidad de opciones muy TOP.

Es muy suave al tacto, se nota que es robusta y de metal, tiene muy buena sensibilidad y velocidad de respuesta, ofrece un gran rendimiento, usando DJUCED y SERATO DJ PRO. Si eres principiante y necesitas comprar una controladora DJ para empezar, esta e la tuya. Asimismo si eres más avanzado, también te irá perfecta puesto que sus múltiples características te permitirán desarrollar funciones que otras por el mismo rango de precio no te pueden dar.

Supera en gran manera por ejemplo a la DDJ 400 de Pioneer, tanto a nivel de Hardware como de Software si eres principiante, puesto que integra modalidades que en otras son de pago, como sucede actualmente con Rekordbox, también tiene botones dedicados, como el modo Slip, Quantize, Vinilo ...

Para sacar un pero, quizás diría que el rango de Pitch podría ser algo mayor, como también sucede en la mayoría de controladoras del mismo rango de precio.

Una función que no incluyen otras a destacar es la entrada auxiliar con filtro incluido que me permite conectar incluso una segunda controladora más pequeña para que un colega que es DJ amateur pueda pinchar su música mientras yo me tomo un descanso sin necesidad de desconectar mi controladora DJ Control Inpulse 500.
La tarjeta de sonido es muy buena, y me da la posibilidad de ecualizar a dos bandas un micrófono externo para pinchar en un club. También cabe destacar las patas retráctiles que le dan una mayor altura que a veces se agradece, depende de la cabina o sitio donde la uses.

DJing has rather murky origins, and there are many people who claim to have been the first to mix two records together.
