Fans of the DJ Console RMX are Invited to Celebrate Its
Worthy Successor During the Hercules World Tour: It's Your
NEW YORK and LONDON, July 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hercules, the
leader in mobile DJ controllers for PC/Mac(R), is proud to announce the
new DJConsole RMX 2, the newest controller and worthy successor to the
Hercules DJ Console RMX. Available mid-August 2012, the DJConsole RMX 2
is perfect for fans of the original DJ Console RMX and the talented new
generation of mobile DJs looking for professional gear combining
performance, versatility and mobility at an affordable price.
Hercules invites DJing communities to live the DJConsole RMX 2
experience from a unique perspective during the World Tour: It's Your
Turn event, which will run from the end of summer until the end of the
year, allowing DJs to practice mixing, learn new techniques, enhance
skills, participate in DJing contests, and team up with emerging DJing
artists to share their unique passion.
Over the past four years, the original Hercules DJ Console RMX has
become the benchmark device in its category -- a DJing controller for
PC and Mac available for less than $300. Thanks to its user-friendly
controls, audio interface featuring inputs and outputs and its metal
case, the DJ Console RMX has been adopted by DJs embracing computer
DJing that have now trained and evolved using this technology. Today,
Hercules' passion for this technology burns brighter with the release
of the second generation of this device: the Hercules DJConsole RMX 2,
the ideal instrument for emerging DJs to express creativity, work on
mixes, turn ideas into music, hone performance and conquer audiences.
Exceptional audio quality
The Hercules DJConsole RMX 2 is the first controller in its category
boasting a high-resolution 96 kHz/24 bit audio interface for Windows(R)
(ASIO) and Mac(R) (Core Audio). For audiences and DJs alike, the
device's 96 kHz/24 bit audio capabilities offer audio quality and
dynamic sound that are far superior to a 44.1 kHz/16 bit interface.
The DJConsole RMX 2 is a part of the current DJing trend allowing DJs
to create high-resolution audio mixes, as a growing number of DJing
software applications (VirtualDJ(R) 8, Traktor(R) Pro, Ableton) become
compatible with a 96 KHz/24 bit resolution. The Mastered for iTunes
program provides a number of 96 kHz/24 bit digital audio tracks, and
computers running Mac OS and Windows 7 64-bit can handle this
resolution without increasing latency.
DJs wishing to distribute their music as high-resolution audio files
using programs such as Mastered for iTunes can easily create
high-resolution music tracks with the DJConsole RMX 2.
The DJConsole RMX 2 features a comprehensive set of audio outputs and
-- 2 balanced XLR outputs suited to PA amplifiers, long cable lengths
(balanced outputs help reduce audio interferences) and studio recording
-- 2 RCA outputs for monitoring mixes or connecting hi-fi systems
-- 2 stereo connectors (6.35 mm) for headphones
-- 4 RCA inputs for mixing 2 external stereo sources, with 2 Line/Phono
-- 1 balanced microphone input (XLR/Jack combo), ideal for talkover
applications, suited to both balanced high-end microphones and
non-balanced consumer microphones.
A rugged metal case
With its metal casing, the DJConsole RMX 2 is a solid device that will
live up to the most intense mixing sessions and transport conditions.
Its compact measurements (35 x 25 cm) and limited weight (2.6 kg) make
it ideally suited to following mobile DJs on the road; in addition, the
DJConsole RMX 2 is provided with a carry bag.
The DJConsole RMX 2 features:
-- Pressure-sensitive jog wheels for scratching
-- 2 sets of 4 backlit velocity sensitive pads enable DJs to control loops,
effects, samples and cue points; DJs can use the pads to trigger instant
controls or, by varying their velocity, can control the sound amplitude.
-- The rotary encoder located in each set of 4 pads can be used to modulate
the last control triggered on a pad after a hit.
-- 5 faders and 10 rotary potentiometers in 14-bit MIDI mode offer extreme
precision for mixing. The cross-fader can be replaced with a
-- Transport buttons featuring a supple rubber cap and a short-travel tact
switch with a haptic feedback
A comprehensive software suite
The DJConsole RMX 2 will be supplied with two DJing software apps:
DJUCED(TM) 40 degrees and VirtualDJ(R) 8 LE.
VirtualDJ 8 LE combines efficient mix controls with a user-friendly
graphic user interface, and also offers 24-bit/96 KHz audio resolution.
(Until VirtualDJ 8 LE is released, RMX 2 owners will be able to use
VirtualDJ 7 LE).
DJUCED 40 degrees , the new DJ mixing software, offers unequalled audio
clarity combined with 24-bit/96 KHz audio resolution. It displays the
mix in a streamlined graphic user interface, allowing DJs to
concentrate on their music.
The Hercules DJConsole RMX 2 will be available starting mid-August
2012, at a suggested retail price of $299.99
