Flagship

Hercules represents with its flagship DJControl Inpulse 500, here in a special golden-toned version including a soft case. 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 with computer-based DJ software, which will play the music from the 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. This special version comes with a soft case with adjustable carrying strap.

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.

Ich habe mir mit dem Controller zuerst einige Sachen selbst erarbeitet und probiert. Das lief ohne Probleme - Aufbau, Setup und Bedinung sind intuitiv und entsprechen ganz dem Standardlayout. Um wirklich alle Features richtig kennenzulernen, hat sich dann der im Paket enthaltene Onlinekurs beim DJ Coach richtig gelohnt. Da habe ich selbst als erfahrener Musiker wichtige Dinge über die Perspektive und Arbeit von DJs gelernt. Das spart letztendlich auch viel Zeit. Daher ist es meines Erachtens nach das perfekte Paket für (auch musikerfahrene) DJ-Einsteiger und Fortgeschrittene. Wohlbemerkt ist im Paket der Gold-Edition ein gut verarbeitetes Softcase und die Serato Pro Lizenz mit dabei. Daher ist der Preis absolut attraktiv.
Die Verarbeitung ist gut und fühlt sich hochwertig an. Mit den Fadern und Jogwheels komme ich gut zurecht. Ich bin mir jetzt schon sicher damit eine gute Performance liefern zu können!

Ich kann nur halbwegs triftige Nachteile nennen:
1. Der Hercules-Audiotreiber setzt die Latenz immer auf 16ms. Man muss manuell den Wert auf 4ms (Standard) setzen und kann die Einstellung (noch) nicht speichern. Ich werde dies als Wunsch bei Hercules äußern.
2. Einsatz von zwei Effekten zur gleichen Zeit (z.B. High Pass Filter + Echo auf Deck 1) nur über Workaround möglich, den man von Deck 1 und Deck 2 jeweils manuell in Serato umstellen muss, je nach dem wo die Effekte wirken sollen. Für mich ist das total OK, da ich Effekte eher einsetze wie feine Gewürze.
3. Keine Symmetrischen Ausgänge (Anders gesagt: Die Stereo-DI-Box ist nicht eingebaut) Kurze Patchkabel in eine externe Stereo-DI-Box zu stecken schreckt mich aber nicht ab ;)

Ich hoffe ich konnte euch damit weiterhelfen!

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