When I bought it, I needed a new sound card very quickly.
I chose it because I thought I would get a sound car plus a controller.
I needed a sound card for monitoring and also to mix my MP3s with my vinyl records.
I had PROBLEMS during the installation because it wasn't recognized by the computer, but I finally succeeded after many attempts.
The manual is enough. The latency time is ok.
I used the software tools provided but they are not quite finished technically speaking. I had latency problems and the cue points were not reliable.
I could only playback one single track.
I kept it one year and it didn't do what I expected.
I later bought a secondhand Edirol FA 101. The sound was much better and I didn't notice any latency. Now, I have an Echo Layla and I guess the sound quality will increase again.
I sold it again.
This was my worst buy and also my worst sell ever.
--Awful! Just a toy! For the same price, you'd better buy an Edirol or an EMU.
My need was to find a MIDI controller lating jog a platinum cd and a pitch.
I use a mixer Numark two ways to mix and not the controller.
my use of the controller's just to move forward or backward with the jog, not automatic sync needs (rigging ear) or pots of Hercules (since I use my mixer)
Mix on HP laptop (1024 ram, 60 gig mp3 songs 320 kbps achets on bleeps, konpakT.mp3, beatport frankly with a good amp and speakers that correct, qualities similar to cd)
When we use the Hercules console only for his jog and pitch, frankly for the price I'm so happy it fulfills its role (I did not metter 400 euros for just using the jog the Vestax or the total kontrol )dropoff window
I advance, I retreat, I hold, I accelerates, I slowed down, the mix was I doing repeats on my mixer, a Mtal with sturdy buttons!
1 DJ console purchased for 60 euros Ocassion
1 Mixer Numark 100 euros
1 mixing software 200 euros
I have a configuraion that suits me, I do not give a shit about the appearance of my dj console, I could mix even without mixer!
Trs a good console dpend primarily of soft, with which it is used and the person using it. It is ncessaire connatre of all of the same computer and its configuration. Remember that it is possible to update the firmware and drivers to enjoy the same mode asio mode dj. = Decrease in latency.
Previous advice for that I prciser virtual dj is one of the worst apps that offers quality sound than mdiocre. Plutt install drivers for the trznsformer into a powerful MIDI controller and use software mixing plutt worthy of the name such as bpm studio pro 4.9 or even tracktor dj studio.
Finally, two large wheels are not made to "toy" is to say scratch as some believe, but much more practical to calibrate the beat.
