New Dj Controller - Hercules Dj Control Mp3 e2

Got this baby about a month ago. Its a bit of a beauty. For £99 its a good deal if you ask me. You get a special version of virtual dj which is quite useful especially for video mixing. The mixing part is what i like with this. Once you've got the tracks synced its all about the effects (phaser,loop etc) which gets the party going . My only gripes (which I can live with) are the lack of a proper manual for *Virtual DJ . There is a guide for getting started but it is only for getting started and well if you wanted to take one of these gigging you'd want a bit more knowledge about the software (you can actually map this to the dj software of your choice). The jog wheel is great for cueing a track but for scratching its only good for effects. Dont get me wrong, you can scratch with it, but when you let go there is a slight delay which makes it different from going crazy with the vinyl. Also I found that if I accidently touch the jog wheel and the track I was playing warped. Not good..but you can adjust the sensitivity or just turn the scratch button off and just use it to cue ;-)
All in all its worth the price I used this for a few parties for a few mates but also for a Fashion show and it more than did the job. If you want a controller for parties or for home use this is great. If you want something between the budget controllers and highend ones such as the Hercules control  remix and console steel then get one of these.

Uk peeps can get one here DJ Control MP3 e2
