Hercules, the leader in mobile DJ controllers for PC/Mac®, is proud to announce the new DJConsole RMX 2, the newest controller and worthy successor to the Hercules DJ Console RMX. 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.

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® (ASIO) and Mac® (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® 8, Traktor® 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.

A comprehensive software suite

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. he DJConsole RMX 2 will be supplied with two DJing software apps: DJUCEDTM 40° and VirtualDJ® 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°, 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.

A rugged metal case

And 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.

•  
•  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 Mini-Innofader control.
•  Transport buttons featuring a supple rubber cap and a short-travel tact switch with a haptic feedback
•  2 balanced XLR outputs suited to PA amplifiers, long cable lengths (balanced outputs help reduce audio interferences) and studio recording work
•  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 switches
•  1 balanced microphone input (XLR/Jack combo), ideal for talkover applications, suited to both balanced high-end microphones and non-balanced consumer microphones.

Things You Will Get:

  • RMX 2 DJ Console
  • DJ Software; CDR's

      Comments about Hercules RMX 2 DJ Console:

      I went through 3 of these in less than a year. After working for a few months, it stopped turning on. Exchanged it for another one, the same thing happened. Then went straight to the factory, did and exchange through the mail, and the one they sent me never turned on right out of the box. When it worked it seemed to be a good product...when it worked. Switched to a Numark Mixtrack Pro 2, works great no problems at all.

        Comments about Hercules RMX 2 DJ Console:

        I am mobile DJ who prefer good sound quality without hauling a lot of equipment. The Hercules RMX2 allows me to accomplish that. The sound quality is second to none. The Jog Wheels are a 100% improvement from the original RMX, which I bought, loved, used and sold. The price is affordable. I like that I am able to work a party with just my laptop, RMX2, and JBL PRX Powered Speakers using direct XLR connections and Monitor, which I did for a beach party and another at a large venue. If I want to add a turntable or CD player, I simply plug in the RCA. Recently, I DJ'ed at recent venue, plugged in my 2 Powered Speakers, plus monitor directly into the RMX2, used the sensitivity pads, for cueing, samples, looping and effects. The crowd response was great. It is easy to learn and use with Virtual DJ Pro.
