DJ V-Style's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Great for beginners!"

Hercules DJ Control Steel
This is not what controller I use today but I made my debut in the middle of the movie with him.
It was my first controller, and after I invested in a VMS4 American Audio.
His most it is simply extremely practical ergonomics and extremely intuitive interface that allows anyone to succeed nice transition.
His least is the lack of sound card, but for an amateur dj that does not matter because little direct use of the computer.
The price rise is fairly new, but I think there is opportunity to make a good deal, especially since the production is pretty good and the controller is relatively strong.
I recommend this controller to everyone who wants to start and grow in the middle of the mix and animation, it is a formidable gateway turning any individual amateur DJ.

Note that to continue to break into this community it will be necessary to invest in another type of material, but we must compare what is comparable, there is no equivalent in this product line.

Will Zégal's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good for my amateur use"

Hercules DJ Control Steel
How long have you use it?
A little over a year

What is so special that you like most and least?
The most: its rather strong and not too plastic, the contact with the controls that is not cheap
Good organization / usability

Cons: the knobs still plastoc, no audio interface function

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, not the masses, even if I had the opportunity to put their fingers on some entry-level models.

How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Difficult to judge the quality / price without more experience. What I can say is that for the price, it satisfies me.

I'm not really DJ. Even if I happen to have paid a few evenings a year, I mix mostly for fun, for parties at home and among friends, and the small bar at the corner of my street.
And yet, when I say "I mix" is rather simple for the time sequence of songs, even if I start to go a little further.

After a few years juggling a classic console (not even DJ, so without cross) and multiple sources (mp3 on computer, CD player, sampler phrases), I wanted to spend on a cheap solution to DJ, but not a cheap product so far. The DJ Steel perfectly corresponded to that expectation. With the accompanying VirtualDJ, it's a simple config and easy to use for my own use, I am certainly not ready to come at the end of the possibilities.

eljulow's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Really not bad!"

Hercules DJ Control Steel
For how long have you been using it?

For 2 ½ years ...

Did you try many other models before getting this one?

The Hercules MK2 home forever, and if not CD players like the Denon DNS-1000.

What thing do you like most/least about it?

The pros:
- Not too expensive for a product like this
- Configurable Keys
- Design sober
- No frills
- Efficient and easy to master
- Perfect for beginners

The -:
- Jog small and sometimes too sensitive or too little rather
- No sound card is no preview
- Buttons with effect very plastic
- Software included with (VDJ 5 Lite) totally null

What is your opinion about the value for the price?

Not too bad, but I admit it must then add the money to buy a sound card (if only for the preview!) And mixing software functional (transition to the pro version of VDJ, or purchase Traktor ...) So ultimately the quality / price takes a hit!

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?

No, I'd rather spend on the DJ Console RMX, which will at least have a sound card rather than buy cheap (100 € less than the RMX) to take a sound card (100 € for that matter) next which will add load to your PC and causing small lag!
To start is not bad, you can mix without breaking the bank ... but do not expect to use it in the evening pro!

Djfoxydu29's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good product for small budget"

Hercules DJ Control Steel
For how long have you been using it?
Um for approximately 4 months
Did you try many other models before getting this one?
DJcontrole the MP3 from the same manufacturer, and mix in Virtuality AudioPhony
What thing do you like most/least about it?
More on: - Strength Product
- Potentiometers not too soft nor too hard
- Console large enough
- The price
The Minus: - Jog small
What is your opinion about the value for the price?
It has for its price, and begin to deepen into the mix as this console is enough, it is by its solid frame and the buttons respond superbly on traktor. More when we have a small budget like me can go there with eyes closed ^ ^
Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
Straightforwardly because I personally have no budget to buy me pioneers (unfortunately) and for hobbyists and music mix this console offers low prices a lot of possibility. Certainly it is not the Pioneers, but it is far from 450 for first prize. At first I was rétissant bad memory of Hercules with the MP3 control which was small and soft buttons, but it gives me a different vision of the brand. Now I hope to have the opportunity to acquire Pioneers ^ ^

CMD's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Hercules DJ Control Steel
How long have you use it?
One year

What is so special that you like most and least?
The best: compact but not too tight, the top aesthetic, strength of the chassis (fader knobs and a little less ...) and price!
Minimum: MIDI implementation weird sometimes, but it is the only flaw!

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, no mixer control noon, but to have two CD players and a mixer, how to mix is ​​totally different. That's why I suggest that the higher the Steel RMX Hercules, because it is better to separate the digital mixing digital mixing. After it is only my opinion

How would you rate the quality / price?
The report is very good, except for the crossfader which I find a little weakling who deserved a better quality

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes, because there, on that table, all the functions necessary to mix like a table Behringer DDM4000 for example, which is very nice, but not in price!

Hercules DJ Control Steel
I use it for a month with the accompanying software, so virtual dj 5 in limited edition. It is easy to learn and practice transport. I dj test tonight and it's worth the money. Sr Although it is not worth two turntables and a mixer but its price is well trs. For beginners and a small budget is a good machine trs.

Hercules DJ Control Steel
- How long have you use it?

A few days!

- What is so special that you like most and least?

I have design and quality manufacturing, once more connected to the mac pro, I signal a problem.
I use Virtual DJ 5.
Plus: a bag to store it in to the shelter of the dust.
Or go to mix among friends or why not a live.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

This is my first model.

- How would you rate the quality / price?

Very good.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

No problem!

goonzy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Hercules DJ Control Steel
- How long have you use it?
10 days along with Traktor 3.4 and Traktor Pro

- What you like best:
3 tracks "volume" and number of buttons and controls assignable
Nice touch faders and pots. The set off a real feeling of solidity.

- The least?
No external power supply that can pump a bit on some USB ports
"Shift" limited to certain buttons.
MIDI implementation poorly described. Sending a message on the control switches shown in another.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes: Vestax VCI 100, M-Audio X Session, Faderfox DJ Kontrol DJ. I put the same level as the level vestax grip, though a bit more cumbersome, it allows to have controls enough apart to avoid them tangling fingers.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Very good

- With experience, you do again this choice?
Yes. My choice was motivated by my lack of need for a controller with integrated audio interface.
