The most portable 2-deck DJ controller available with built-in audio

Musikmesse, Frankfurt, Germany, March 25th, 2010 – In mid-January at the 2010 NAMM show, Hercules offered a sneak preview of its latest DJ controller. Today, at the Musikmesse European trade fair in Frankfurt, the manufacturer is pleased to announce the release date and retail price of its new Hercules DJ Console Mk4.

Mark this down on your calendar! – This 2-deck portable DJ controller, featuring built-in audio, will be available in June 2010, at a suggested retail price of $199.99.

With the DJ Console Mk4, DJs can:

integrate analog audio into their digital mix, switch between mixing on their computer and mixing with standard DJ decks (CD or vinyl): using DJ Console Mk4 and the included VirtualDJ® software, DJs can manipulate external audio sources just as they would with an analog mixing setup (the cross fader, volume faders and EQ knobs control mixing between the two external decks).

Overview of Hercules DJ Console Mk4 features: 2-deck mixer: mix digital audio files on PC and Mac®.  The console features a compact design, powered by the USB port, and has been created for mobile DJing. Includes a built-in, high-performance audio interface:

2 stereo outputs to play the mix on active speakers, a PA system, a hi-fi system or a mixer.
2 stereo inputs (with 4 levels: Phono / standard line level / professional line level / boosted line level) to connect any external audio sources: MP3 players, CD mixing decks, vinyl turntables and more.
Headphone output (for previewing tracks).
Microphone input (with talk-over function).
Well-spaced controls for precise mixing: 2 jog wheels, one cross fader, 2 volume faders, 2 pitch encoder knobs, 6 EQ knobs and 36 buttons.
Intuitive to use: includes functions for synchronizing tracks, automatic loops, adding multiple effects, and recording mixes.
Includes the VirtualDJ® DJC Edition mixing software.

Comes with a protective cover, a shoulder strap for easy transportation, and a sub-skin featuring a printed graphic (which can be placed underneath the rigid transparent skin installed on its top panel, to customize the console with an eye-catching design).
