    CAN THE HERCULES DJ CONTROLLER 4-MX WORKS WITH SERATO SCRATCH LIVE

  • Johnlawlor365

    hey guys just wondering what is the sound quality like from the soundcard ?? I could run it through my pioneer 600 mixer but just wanted to know if this controller would be suitable sound wise for pub gigs?

    • DJ Ron

      It has two asio sound cards which cannot be bettered.
      The microphone can be a bitch to sort out.
      I don’t like Hercules wrote over the superb jog wheels..whatever.
      I doubt any manufacturer has caught up with the no nonsense design and solid build.
      I’m a bit doubtful about the need for 4 decks.
      The 4 wave display in virtualdj 7 pro is a mess.
      Two might be enough combined with an effects / sampler controller like the Akia LPD8.
      Value for money is outstanding.

    Stay away from the American Audio VMS4 if you wanna take it to your Bar or Club! It has a VERY POOR SOUND CARD! Good for home use but not for a large venue….I took it back instantly,now being patient for the right controller;)

    In search of a good console (<500$)I've been following news and updates on the DJ Console 4-Mx and Reloop. Liked Virtual DJ first but recently played with Traktor and liked it more. Not a pro but progressed "newbie" :-)

    Q: Could anyone of you Pro DJ's give me a motivated advice on what to buy to work with Traktor Pro? Reloop digital jockey 2 (interface) or Hercules DJ Console 4-Mx. Thx!

    • SHM

      Same story here. Been pumping on VDJ & Traktor and following reviews cracking my head which controller to buy.

      And finally, I bought a Reloop Digital Jockey 2 Interface Edition. Tested a few controllers myself VCI-100, Hercules & Reloop. This one really rocks! Feels much better in control of mixes.

      And guess what. I used to use VDJ for almost a year. But since Traktor came in with RDJ2 IE, I switched to it. VDJ is a joyride, can easily do many things with clear interface. Traktor gives you more in-depth controls.

      That rocks!

    • Mg Gyi

      Wow, this is a big difference.

      If this is your first piece, go for hercules.
      But in 3 months time, you will feel like you should have bought S4.

      Hercules controllers are more entry level and S4 is one of the best digital controller around.

    Hey everyone, I’ve been djing at parties but I’m looking at moving up and getting a controller (seems to be the best way to jump from simply using virtual dj) but I’m not sure which one to get to go with Virtual Dj or if I should look into a different program altogether. This one looks good but I’d like to get the advice of some dj’s who remember just starting off.

    Thx.

    “The knobs, buttons and components are not exactly “mixer” quality and would look out of place in a club or bar setting.”

    Uh what?! Dude, if I am on the floor dancing and the DJ is dropping the heat who cares what his decks look like. And if I am the DJ quality and price… Looks are last in line of consideration. Just sayin’.

  • David

    hercules dj 4 mx or vci 100mk2 ?

  • lols

    I’ve have been seeing allot of the media controllers. but the 4-mx doesn’t look THAT BAD. You have to take in that it has 4 decks … Anyways i’m a beginner and i’m looking for some good quality Dj equipment anyone help me out? Cheers.

  • Max

    Hercules has NOT “announced that the “Dj Console 4-MX” will be the replacement to their popular “DJ Console RMX” controller”: DJ Console 4-Mx does not replace DJ Console Rmx, it completes the range as an higher end controller than DJ Console Rmx (more controls, larger casing, larger jog wheels).

  • Rick

    Also, are those actual indicators or just back lit stickers?

  • Rick

    It’s not like your going to have sex with this,it’s about how well it works, I’m sick of hearing people crap on good products because they think it needs to “look” like something in order for it to work right, guess what, it’s a controller, so what matters is your computer. I wanted the S4 but from what is out atm, I’ve been turned off by it, just too much extra crap I don’t need, it’s like having a toilet that makes toast, way too impractical for the price, but If your self-aware and want to hid how much you suck by buying something based on the “look” in hopes to hide behind that then go ahead……. it’s not the equipment that makes a good DJ, it’s the practice. and originality, and how they differ from everyone else.

  • JohnnyK

    I believe that Vestax VCI-100 is one of the best controllers w/o built in sound card and also the Vestax Typhoon is another good choice with a buit in sound card but can someone tell me WHY Vestax doesn’t support AMD processors? I really can’t understand this.

  • chrisw.

    [quote comment="37850"]It seems to be that the manufacturers will never make really good controllers even if they know how to do it….
    Their aim is to sell…sell and sell…….so they only add very little change to each new product instead of make a real good one….in this case, they only add better jogg…it’s only a RMX with new jogg…next year they will add 4 faders….and in 2012 5 more buttons…..people will buy again…

    I really think, the better way is to buy a good mixer and only update a little cheap controller as the x1

    But for those who want a all in one controller, I think the better one under 500 $ is the Vms4….and the cheaper one, the Hercules Steel…[/quote]
    I totally get what your saying I mean I’m local to where DJTT is based. And Id have no problem Making a 3d Model in solid works or autocad mechanical,if anyones down to get something like this going let me know. I just got no idea about programming or wiring.

  • Anonymous

    [quote comment="37860"]I think the Numark Mixtrack and the recently talked Mixtrack Pro need to be considered in the talks. As far as budget controllers I don’t see any others being out the price per feature.

    Possibly the Reloop line also.[/quote]
    The Reloop has a downside though being recommended to be used with Intel only processors. Which i dont understand. I mean i know amd runs at a higher temp but really it shoudlnt make that much of a difference.

  • Vulgurth

    I have used the DJ Control Steel for some time, and it’s been great! The only bad thing was that I had to map it to fit my needs. Other than that, the controller performs flawlessly. I don’t know how good is the sound card embedded to this Hercules RMX. I use a M-Audio Fast Track Pro with my DJ Control Steel.

  • c-dawg

    I have a feeling that this is going to be a top seller… who cares if it looks like a toy? Wtf do people even mean by toy when it comes to controllers? If its not a turntable or a cdj.. than you dj with a toy. Whatever.. toys rule

  • Alan

    Please include Vestax Typhoon in your round up! I would like to know if it posses the same praised build quality as the VCI-100. Looking forward to it.

    • shay

      i had a typhoon for a few dayz but to be honest! u would be better with argos cheap unit! because it looked cheep an nasty the componants eg faders knobs switchs felt very shody. it was ni on imposible to use the b,m,t an gains with the horible old style graphic sliders not smooth atall……faders were stiff…oh an its soundcard was pants…lol….i was guna be upgradin to this from a bcd 3000 but against each other the bcd came first by miles apart from the jogs……

  • http://turntablepoetry.com/blog dj professor ben

    I know there’s no love lost between this site and the DJ-Tech folks (and who could blame ya), but I’d be really interested in an honest review of some of their products. They have a couple all-in-one controllers in that price range, so it would be great to see one of them included here. Also the recent Numark, which is only $150 as I recall…

  • jfd6812

    “You can buy the VCI-100 all day for $499 so I hope that’s in your roundup.”

    True, but you still need a soundcard which is at least another $100 (new). I still went w/ VCI & a soundcard.

  • Paddy

    [quote comment="37826"]There are more controllers on the way, apparently pioneer are going to be showing 2 new models tommorrow at BPM in the UK, one for serato bridge and on for Traktor but being pioneer i bet the price will be close to 1000.[/quote]

    since, i’m waiting for the s4 to be out, i’m intrested in seeing what pioneer has to offer but I think the price will be closer to the DX

    regarding the 4rmx:
    * 4 decks with 2 faders/eq? c’mon you don’t need to buy this to get it, just add a bunch of modifiers to your current rmx and you get the same thing.
    * weight activated jogs are a nice touch, but I’d like to test it’s response. ok, it has the feature, but does it live up to it?
    * needs a few more knobs for effects
    * pricing is ridiculous.
    * soundcard will prolly be the same the onmi has, being an “ok” card
    * designwise, i never liked herc’s controllers (this one in particular has it’s jogs invading the mixer section, not very wise for live action).

    IMO, save some more and get a vci+card (hi res pitch/jogs and pro feel) and enjoy the mappings on the forum :)

    on a side note, behringer should really update bcd3000

    • Swagish

       Can any one do tell me the dealers of Hercules in INDIA? near NEW DELHI

      urgent

  • Chris G

    I can already see a problem in that it doesn’t have a fader for each channel. I have an RMX and love it,and an upgrade would be great, but it looks like i’ll shell out the cash for an s4 sometime down the road. It’s great Hercules is making advances and improvements, like to the jog wheels (which is my main beef with the RMX). However I just bought two 1200′s, so i’ll get my fill.

  • davendiva

    There are more controllers on the way, apparently pioneer are going to be showing 2 new models tommorrow at BPM in the UK, one for serato bridge and on for Traktor but being pioneer i bet the price will be close to 1000. Also Reloop have a newbie called the Mixage designed for tracktor duo which has 4 cue/play buttons similar to the VCI 100 arcade.

  • Segfault

    Two midiFighters and an Audio 2 DJ would be my choice of set up for under 500.

  • CaliBoy

    Plus jogwheels much too close together.
    My bad there is a headphone jack on the front.

  • CaliBoy

    This thing is incredibly overpriced !
    What when through their minds ?
    Who’s going to buy this ?

    Once again a product that has been designed by people who don’t know anything about DJing… Headphones plug on the top ?
    Cue and play buttons are ridiculous.
    Very very toyish design…
    I guess the only good thing is the metal chassis.

  • flash101uk

    Please could you include the reloop digital jockey interface edition in your roundup. I think a review of this is overdue on DJTT.

    [quote comment="37791"]I don’t think the rmx looks any less professional than a vci 100.[/quote]

    Looks and feel are two different things. I had an RMX, when I got a VCI the build quality is on another level. Knobs, buttons, jogs, case, etc. were of much better quality. This looks to be of the same parts of an RMX. Nothing wrong with that, but a VCI has a much better tactile feel to it.

    This thing is over priced.

  • Rizzo

    In your upcoming feature, please include in depth real-word (i.e.iIn a club) testing of these controllers’ sound quality. Cheap sound cards are very noticeable in a loud club with a decent sound system. My example: the features of the VMS4 are great, but take it out of the bedroom and the sound & mic quality is noticeably lacking (I put that nicely). Also please detail how well they integrate with standard audio devices (CD Players, TTs) & if they can run as a stand alone mixer (like upcoming Denon MC-6000 can); and if they can’t run as standalone mixer, do they have emergency audio pass thru (like the Xone-DX)? As a companion piece I’d also love to see a breakdown comparison l of the leading software (Serato, Traktor, VDJ, etc) and be sure to include info on using with companion SW/HW like Ableton & Maschine. What would really help me is if you would also include in the comparison the player/controller/midi-mixer combinations like a Pioneer DJM800 with a coulple CDJ350s.

    There are ao many digital options right now & I’m ready to make the change but I need something tactile, reliable, flexible, redundant (don’t trust computers & sound cards completely), and allows me greater creativity over the TTs & later the CDJs I came up with.

  • Risc

    How about the Omni Control from Numark? Everybody is talking about the total control but omnicontrol has a soundcard :D

  • Erwin

    LooL its liek The Hercules Steel And Mk4 Had A BAby XD

    I had the RMX it was a great midi controller, and I used it with traktor pro. This looks good and now it has 4 decks. Its good to see more of this coming out…

    Would you guys map this to work with Traktor? Does the VCI have weight activated jog wheels, as this would be quite nice to add fx with.

  • http://www.gamerscorewhore.com Richard

    I’m interested in any controllers that can replace my existing CDJ timecode setup with Traktor Scratch Pro.
    So far, due to the lack of hi definition midi I haven’t tried anything that was responsive enough. :(

  • nastynate

    I am sorry, but those jogwheels look retarded TO ME. Looks more like a toy to me. Good thing for low budget entry level djs tho im sure.

  • http://www.djpc3.com/ Dj PC3

    Excited for the Controller Round-Up… Wish they had it when I was first looking at controllers

  • Chris

    Looks nice, 4 decks control, sturdy……
    but not enough knobs to control effects in traktor & overpriced (Vms4 seems to be better choice for the same price, with more more more controls).. :(
    (and probably no high pitch & jogg resolution….)
    But we probably can expect an “only controller version” without the integrated soundcard at a lower price…It could be more interesting :)

  • theory28

    please include the numark total control in that round up. im curious what you guys have to say about it

  • sirch one

    I gig with the rmx a few nights a week and it I’ve never had any serious problems with it. Just when I’m about to get the s4 ..4-mx shows up! I’m looking forward to this controller, if it can perform better than the rmx.. i’ll grab one for sure!

  • Chris Jennings

    That seems like quit a price jump to me! I know it’s not a controller, but comparing the DDM4000 directly against controllers might be a good idea. Highlighting the differences between the mixer and other controllers could help others in deciding between the two.

  • OmniRoss

    I like the idea of a built in 4 deck option, other manufactures should take this into account i think.
