 Hercules P32 DJ Controller Launched at NAMM 2016

Anaheim, CA – January 21, 2016 – Hercules, a leader in mobile and professional DJ equipment, today announces at NAMM 2016, the company’s new innovative digital DJ Controller, the Hercules P32 DJ and powerful and recently updated, full, pro-version DJ companion software, DJUCED40°. Both will be shown at the company’s booth, #5298.

Specially designed for creative mixing and remixing, the combination of the Hercules P32 DJ and DJUCED 40° is unique, drawing its strength from the core of its two related, yet very different worlds; DJing and music production. The Hercules P32 DJ makes a simple promise to its users as an all-in-one solution, offering innovative, intuitive and visual functionalities, while allowing DJs to enrich their creativity.

“We see an entire new generation of DJ/producers who are less interested in traditional turntablism, but still looking for the ability to slice, mix and remix tracks while integrating samples,” said Michael Peterson, Hercules US Marketing Manager. “Through its integration with the DJUCED 40° software, we’ve made it incredibly easy for everyone from the beginner DJ to the professional DJ to use the Hercules P32 DJ and excel while not being overwhelmed with advanced beat matching techniques.”

A unique all-in-one controller, at the crossroads of DJing and performance

The uncompromising Hercules P32 DJ embodies the optimization of two sources of inspiration: an all-in-one controller, perfectly tailored for mixing, boasting two 16-pad grids with advanced DJ software, allowing DJs to follow the rhythm of their creativity.

The two decks each feature a dual-digit display for highlighting loop sizes, while also offering effect racks and cue buttons, as well as a central mixer, and direct access to all mixing functions. Hercules has also added 32-backlit pads for an ergonomic and visual use of the DJUCED 40° remix features including; sampler, slicer, loops and much more. Additionally, the Hercules P32 DJ features a 4-channel audio interface that lets users connect speakers and headphones for an all-in-one mixing solution.

The thrill of instant creative mixing: Play. Remix. Perform.

The Hercules P32 DJ represents complete harmony of a controller and DJ software to create a new category of DJ Performer.

The 32 ergonomic and reactive pads also offer great precision and convey a sense of quality. Combined with the intelligence of DJUCED 40°, these pads provide DJs with assistance and visual indicators to help keep their tracks’ rhythm and phrase intact, thanks to the quantization feature or the slip mode.

To perfect the experience, the solution is fully Plug & Play compatible, without requiring complex driver installation. Additionally, the DJUCED 40° software also features tracks and multiple sample packs that let DJs get started instantly.

Live the show. Develop an onstage presence

Being a DJ is much more than just technical skills and creating a playlist: it also involves the ability to put on a show. Hercules P32 DJ lets users develop their signature sound, and visual presentation, thanks to dynamic backlighting and scalable sample packs provided by DJUCED 40°.

Hercules P32DJ will be available from select retail partners as well as online at a suggested retail price of $249.99, beginning on March 3, 2016.
