    <center>HERCULES Unveils Breakthrough DJ Console
    A Unique Portable USB MP3/WMA/CD Mixing & Sound System

    Hercules is delighted to announce the release of its new DJ Console, a revolutionary complete portable DJ controller and multichannel USB sound card for desktop/laptop PCs with no match in the worldwide market.

    “Today’s digital technology is creating a new type of DJ,” explains Bruno Ormel, Sound Business Unit Director at Hercules. “A great selection of fun DJ software now allows users to mix MP3s just like a night club DJ or turntablist. Hercules’ goal was to bring the tactile aspect of vinyl DJing to the digital world, resulting in the development of this groundbreaking new MP3/WMA/CD interface. DJ Console gives DJs a great sense of control, providing the ultimate mixing experience with endless creative possibilities and opening up the field of DJing to a huge new audience. There’s never been such a powerful and complete DJ tool available with this ease of use.”

    DJ Console is perfect for digital DJs and music fans right across the board:

    Aspiring or amateur home DJs can create their own real-time live music mixes and compilations with pro audio quality right on their desktop/laptop PC, perfecting their skills faster than with vinyl. MP3/digital music fans can enjoy smooth background music with professional-quality sound. MP3s have never sounded this good! Club DJs, FM/Internet radio DJs and DJs on a budget can now prepare their mixes faster and easier than ever before, going beyond the limitations of conventional turntables with additional features like looping, cueing, search functions and more. Users can access tens of thousands of their favorite digital tracks and find any title in seconds with no need to lug around hundreds of CDs or LPs.

    Fun, easy and ergonomic mixing/scratching dual tactile unit:

    DJs can now instantly locate, play, mix, sample, loop, scratch and remix digital music – including MP3s, WMAs and CDs – with Hercules’ DJ Console and their desktop or laptop PC. Users will enjoy full hands-on control like a regular turntable with the smallest of learning curves, instead of using tedious keyboard shortcuts to control their major audio applications. DJ Console is also perfectly suited for use under low light conditions at parties thanks to at-a-glance LED mode indicators plus backlit and phosphorescent soft rubber keys.

    DJ Console features:

    2 vinyl-style jog wheels for spinning and scratching, with finger grips for rapid, accurate song searching or speed adjustment
    1 crossfader for seamless mixing between the two decks
    6 ergonomic potentiometers and bass/medium/treble controls for creative remixing on the fly,
    2 rotary encoders and 2 sliders for tweaking volume or changing the speed of music (pitch/master tempo) in real time
    28 buttons to play/pause songs, speed music up or down for accurate mixing (pitch bend), add effects, cue points (song positions) and loops on the fly, skip through tracks backwards or forwards, rewind or fast forward and more
    A soft rubber ministick provides mouse emulation or allows for special DJ FX control.
    DJ Console comes with a complete, intuitive DJ/music software suite. Hercules’ advanced communication protocol guarantees 100% compatibility with the MP3 DJ software suite fine-tuned specifically for use with the DJ Console.

    External multichannel USB sound card:

    Thanks to its high-end converters, DJ Console records audio from instruments, home stereos, CD/DVD players or other devices and plays back music with the highest audio quality. The comprehensive front and rear audio panels provide an incredible range of high-end connections including optical and coaxial digital In/Out and MIDI In/Out to easily connect most analog/digital consumer devices and audio/MIDI gear! Users can remix out to amplified speakers and enjoy up to 5.1-channel surround sound (up to 6 outputs).

    DJs will appreciate being able to play one track for their audience via the DJ Console’s speaker outputs, while listening to another track over the headphone output at the same time to prepare the following mix. To speak to the audience, DJs can use unit’s microphone input with gain control. A handy talkover button allows users to reduce the music volume so that they can be heard more easily, and an input clipping indicator avoids sound saturation.

    Stylish, 100% USB bus-powered, hot-plug & play portable unit:

    Incredibly user friendly, DJ Console is easy to install and use: simply hot-plug the unit via its USB connector and go! DJ Console is 100% USB bus-powered, with no external power supply required. Featuring excellent compatibility, DJ Console works with any PC with a USB port. If the computer has another sound card, there is no need to uninstall it before using the DJ Console. Perfect for mobile use, DJ Console is robust, light and compact and can be used anywhere with a laptop computer. Its robust casing and sleek detachable cover provide maximum protection, while the removable shoulder strap allows for easy transportation.


    DJ Console will be available in October 2003 at an estimated retail price of US $229 (€249, VAT included)."
