Overview

From the company that first brought you a dual mixing deck featuring built-in audio for PC, comes the DJ Console Rmx, a versatile, digital audio controller designed for advanced and professional DJs. With its easily portable format it enables mobile DJs as well as club and studio DJs to mix digital music using its USB port to connect to your laptop. The control layout is spacious enough to allow you to mix with no fear of bumping the wrong buttons or accidentally readjusting preset knobs, yet its compact, laptop size makes it easily mobile. For live mixing and seamless integration with the DJ's professional environment, the DJ Console Rmx features a solid metal casing and non-slip pads guaranteeing perfect stability. Adding to its stability, the device boasts flawless drivers designed by Hercules' Canadian R&D division which boasts expertise acquired by a team with more than 20 years of experience in computer-assisted audio processing.

The Hercules DJ Console Rmx controller ensures precision and speed in all your moves, thanks to 2 ultra-precise jog wheels for moving within tracks and for scratching, 12 rotary switches, 46 push-buttons, 6 faders - including pitch faders with a center detent - plus an innovative and convenient general volume fader. The roomy layout of the controls allows DJs to perfect fumble-free mixes. DJs will find their marks quickly, allowing them to focus their full attention and ability to the music and the dance floor.

As an expert in the design of audio interfaces, Hercules determined that the integration of an audio interface featuring 4 inputs and 4 outputs on the Hercules DJ Console Rmx was both obvious and essential. The interface grants access to unique features such as 4 audio outputs offering maximum sound over 4 mono 1/4" inch jack outputs which output +4dBu for PA equipment, audio output levels at -10dBv over 4 RCA outputs for connecting consumer devices (hi-fi systems, recording devices etc.), and simple integration to your other equipment by means of 2 stereo analog inputs enabling you to mix, via the included DJ software, external sources with digital music. The mixing console also features a phono/line-level selector on each input, ideal for connecting turntables, CD or MP3 players, and rhythm boxes. Microphone (with talk-over feature) and headset (for preview feature) connectors are accessible on the Rmx's upper face and front face, enabling DJs to use the console with inimitable convenience, whether in a flight case, on a DJ stand, or on a tabletop.

As mentioned above, the DJ Console Rmx Controller comes with DJ software, VirtualDJ 5 DJC Edition that works with both PCs and Macs. VirtualDJ 5 DJC Edition instantly connects to the console and includes features and settings specific to the Hercules DJ Console Rmx, combining the power of the VirtualDJ mixing engine with the ergonomics of the console. The Hercules DJ Console Rmx is also a MIDI controller and therefore compatible with other MIDI-controlled software applications.

    I have to say that so far I have not had that many problems with this product so far. The only thing that it laks is the control of all the effect from my VIRTUAL DJ software. It works just great and fine with Vista and XP. I had tried the other products like the Numark Total Control which I have to say 85% of the time did not work at all with both microsoft products. I recomend to you the startin digital dj or experienced dj to Give Hercules Dj Console Rmx a whirl you will be satisfied and the price is just right. The pitch and whell work perfectly when it comes to scratching and tempo mixing.

    Alright so I am new to Djing, only been doing so for about 3-4 months nowand I love it. Although this pretty much was my first controller, I enjoyed it first starting off just because I saw all the good reviews and thought it was the nicest cheapest controller out there. Well I bought this about a month ago, when it was still $300. Thought that it was a little spendy for how small it was, limited with no fx knobs and things like that pretty much the basic concept feel when Djing and using a good controller, and only came with vdj LE. Which has like 10 effects total which only like 1-2 of them are even worthy of using. Its good for a very first controller, although Idk for sure but I'd say going with a numark or something around 200-300 would be more of a Dj feel rather than a little silver box. Like I said its good to start out with to learning the basics mixing, now that its only $180. Id say its a much better deal considering they dropped the price over $100. I returned this when I saw the NI Kontrol S2 on sale for $400. Paid the extra $100 for a controller 10x better. I would only recommend the RMX for a very first controller, and then return it and get a new one when you get a little more money.The limited knobs, super hard plastic effect buttons and stuff, the jog wheels are tiny which isnt a big bother for me since I dont scratch, but still didnt like them. Also the knobs dont have lines above them or a middle set spot when moving the knobs back and forth, just didnt meet my standards I guess...

    Best DJ software controler for the money

    By Chris

    from St. jospeh, MI

    Comments about Hercules DJ Console Rmx Controller:

    I'v been looking at different DJ software controllers for over a year and nuemark has had the budget controllers for some time but this blows them all away. you cant beat the price. yes theres better controllers out there but not for under double the price of this. its all metal construction makes it a solid product and all the buttons and controls feel solid. It comes with a cheap bare bones version of virtual DJ and i don't recommend upgrading to vdj pro but i would recommend getting traktor 3 or traktor pro. Hercules has already took the time to make a file to load all the midi controls into traktor 3 and makes a lot more use of the RMX

    Small Pro DJ

    By Erik

    from Michigan

    Comments about Hercules DJ Console Rmx Controller:

    This unit does it all. Small, compact footprint with large enough buttons to create on-the-fly mixes. The included VDJ software is ok, but upgrade to Pro if you really want to use to fullest potential.

    Good Ole Feeling

    By DJ Chuck

    from Charleston, SC

    Comments about Hercules DJ Console Rmx Controller:

    I started to DJ back in 1980 and retired in 2000. I bought DJ software for my mp3's but software alone could not help if I had a gig. I wanted a quality DJ controller but I did not want to spend a lot. The low cost RMX exceeded my expectations, fast to set-up, easy to use, even for an old school vinyl pro. My wife is worried that I might make a comeback, again.

    Great Product

    By DJ Driver

    from NEw York

    Comments about Hercules DJ Console Rmx Controller:

    I have been DJing for a while now and Im farily new to the whole computer dj thing. I bought the RMX to see what the hype was all about...But I was surprised to find this product rocks. Dont be turned off by the negative reviews that you may here about its slow, or it lags etc etc.. to me it works great. I have a hp core duo processor running at 1.8ghz and it works great. no lag or any other problems. my only request is that they need to make it to rack mount. I know you can by the add on..but to actually make it with the rack..that would be sweet.

    Hercules RMX

    By DJ Brasco

    from Miami, WI.

    Comments about Hercules DJ Console Rmx Controller:

    Great product for the price!!! I haven't had a problem since I bought it, easy to use, great mixing tool, I've got rid of all my cds, but it is a great mixer too (for both "emergency" cd players) Only minor set back is that sometimes the GAIN Volume on both channels turn down occasionally when pressing PLAY, so the GAIN Volume has to be reset prior playing the next track while you prep the next song. Also, occasionally the PLAY, gets stuck on the screen, so you have to rotate the jog wheel to reset. Other than that no other problems have been encountered! However once again the price of the product is just amazing. Way cheaper than the other "dj popular" products that cost too much!!! The Hercules RMX beats the price!!!

    DESERVES 100 STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    By DJPHIL

    from HOUSTON TEXAS

    Comments about Hercules DJ Console Rmx Controller:

    I did research and research on the internet,trying to find this best for my buck.There where some controlers that where higher priced, but didn't include the soundcard.When I plugged up the Hercules RMX; It was "MAGIC!".The power with Virtual Dj and RMX, are so magical that this Is the real total control in your hand! This MIDI controler deserves 100 stars!!!!!!!!! The sound card is such an advantage that you will feel more confident with the RMX, and not a burden of having to spend another 100$ for this.I also purchased the 3 year plan for another 80$. Don't doubt yourself on buying the "HERCULES RMX", it's worth every penny in your wallet. - DJPHIL

    VERY nice console for the buck.

    By sinaptic

    from Saint Paul, MN

    Comments about Hercules DJ Console Rmx Controller:

    This is the second DJ console I've ever bought, and the first one I've had geared towards computer-based mixing. It has all the controls that I use and then some. All knobs and sliders have smooth action and feel sturdy. The amount of resistance on the cross fader is perfect. The console itself is heavy, but I like that, it doesn't move around at all when I'm mixing. The jog wheels work well for me and are sensitive enough for how I mix, but I can understand how a DJ who has worked extensively with vinyl might expect a more realistic feel. Not an issue for me because I've never mixed vinyl. Blue LEDs on certain buttons and indicators are a nice touch, and not too blindingly bright. Would be nice to have one on every function so you can quickly see what's active, but I suppose that's reserved for the more expensive consoles. The whole installation of console and software took less than five minutes on a fairly new Vista laptop. However, the laptop itself needed some tuning so certain system drivers wouldn't cause latency issues. This took some time and research to get right, but now it's working flawlessly. When I tried the console on my roommates Macbook Pro, there were no issues at all and was up and running twice as fast. Comes with a stripped-down version of VirtualDJ, which actually isn't half bad. You can optionally upgrade at a special price to the full version. I like it enough that I probably will... I also tried this console with Mixxx (Open-source!) and it worked well. Can't comment on any of the other softwares out there, though it indicates in the book that it works with most of them. Overall, I'm very impressed!

    Nice Mixer

    By C2DJ

    from Maryland

    Comments about Hercules DJ Console Rmx Controller:

    I am a starting DJ and could have bought something a little cheaper than this, luckily the guys at guitar center hooked me up with this piece. The sound quality is very good and so are the effects. Unfourtanately the software is VERY unimpressive (virtuial DJ). Now I could be nice to Hercules and say it has a purpose, but a piece of steel is plated inside the mixer, im assuming this is to make the mixer feel sturdy and bulletproof.

    THE BEST BANG FOR UR BUCK...

    By Aliasgx

    from FLA

    Comments about Hercules DJ Console Rmx Controller:

    This thing is the best bang for ur buck....with the option of being able to evolve with it. It sounds amazing, feels solid, and designed to be spacious to where nothing is in the way. If your looking for a great all around dj controller, whether ur a beginner or a veteran pro...the RMX is the best choice. I use it with Vdj Pro and it's amazing!!!!! It took me about 15-20 minutes to install, because i have windows 7 so i had to download the right drivers but once that was done it was up and running immediately. Hercules for the win!

    Great Buy for Beginner and Experts Alike

    By Robert

    from Fresno, CA

    Comments about Hercules DJ Console Rmx Controller:

    I previously had owned DJ hardware, but have sold it over the years. Recently I wanted to start getting into hobby DJ mixing so I can at least create some mixes for friends. I started looking into midi controllers this time considering I own all of the digital versions of tracks already, and bought a mac which I've heard tends to work better with hardware controllers. I wanted something that would give me the same features as a Pioneer CDJ and a mid level mixer. After reviewing a couple units, for the price and bang this model worked well. It also has a built in sound card which means you can output your sound directly to speakers instead of having to go through your computer sound card. The unit is very solid and sturdy, and a bit heavy but I like that since it doesn't make it feel cheap. With Traktor Pro, I was able to download their midi mapping file and get everything mapped to the controller, including the lights. Only thing so far I can't figure out is how to control effects on the second channel but that again could just be a mapping issue. Sounds quality also sounds pretty good in my opinion.

    By Karl-Eric L.

    from Rockville, Maryland

    Comments about Hercules DJ Console Rmx Controller:

    this controller is a great product, it comes with Virtual DJ but when you upgrade to Pro, you are capable to do a lot with it, it has its own soundcard 4 inputs and 4 ouputs, you can hook up your external mixer onto it, and also turntables. I never looked back after buying it

    I had the hercules mk2 and picked the rmx up because it looked more professional I definitely recommend this controller to anybody the only downfall is that the software that comes with it sucks so you have to upgrade to virtual dj pro witch I did so now I have version 6.0.1 and its awesome works like it should be with the controller you feel like home once you use it once theres no lag on the audio or on the video but thats prob. because I have 4 gigs of ram . but the controller itself is amazing 5 stars from me
