    A perfect tool for discovering

    How long have you use it?
    I use this controller since February 2013, having just started in the middle of DJing.

    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    Yes, I used a Pioneer DDJ Ergo Controller as Numark NDX 400 and N101 + Numark
    There's no good to say that Pioneer are downright another dimension (but 7/8 times high) and Numark bah not mix on power controller so it is difficult to compare even if it is already a range above.

    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    Goodies: Pre headphones, 2 channels each with their own effects, 4 hot cues per track navigation interface from the controller, its relatively correct.
    Cons: Jogs small and non-touch (pr…

    Goodies: Pre headphones, 2 channels each with their own effects, 4 hot cues per track navigation interface from the controller, its relatively correct.
    Cons: Jogs small and non-touch (pressure sensitive), Loop / Effects / Samples / Cues gathered on the same buttons, no pitch "slide"

    How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice?
    Then the price / quality level, there's no denying this is the top, when you want to start without embarking on major investments, so do not hesitate! With the experience I take course material better and with more varied options.

    Overall Opinion
    I recommend this controller to all newcomers to the world of DJing, perfect for small parties with friends or for fun at home.

    It is ok, I used it as a back up

    Hercules DJ Control InstinctPublished on 03/21/13 at 07:45
    The Hercules DJ Control Instinct is not only affordable but it has a very nice feel to it for it to be in this price range. There are two jog wheels that are pressure sensitive and there are mixer controls in the center of the set up with individual deck controls on the left side and on the right side for each individual platter. The stereo mini jack output is very loud so it can be heard over all of the other sounds during a performance.
    Setting this controller up is very simple. It is bus powered via USB so all I had to do was just plug it in. I never had any driver issues or anything with this controller and never heard of any driver updates for it. This controller is also very easy t…

    Setting this controller up is very simple. It is bus powered via USB so all I had to do was just plug it in. I never had any driver issues or anything with this controller and never heard of any driver updates for it. This controller is also very easy to take with you anywhere. I would not use it as my main controller or rely on it for major shows but it could work as a backup. It comes with software but you can also use it with which ever software you want to use it with if you are not a fan of the “DJUCEDTM” software that comes with it. Though it provides software is very easy to use and has some features that even a seasoned DJ can appreciate.
    Knowing what I know about this product now, I probably wouldn’t purchase it again if I could go back and do it all over because I never really got my money’s worth out of it and never used it as a main controller for my set up. So mainly it was a back up unit and never got tested on the big stage. I recommend someone to look into some of the beginner packages (DJ controller packages) from Numark and similar companies. They have some really good affordable units to learn with.
