Hercules Premiers DJ Computer Audio Interface – DeeJay Trim 4&6
Hercules has premiered the DeeJay Trim 4&6, a USB Audio Interface built for advanced DJ’s who already have a DJ control surface but not a dedicated computer audio interface.
This portable digital interface features a 4-channel output: two +4dBu 1/4″ Jack outputs for PA equipment and four -10dBv RCA outputs for mixing decks and conventional amplifiers. The 4 input / 4 output configurations can be switched to a 2 input / 6 output configuration, enabling users to transfer 2 stereo tracks separately to an external mixing deck, while adding a third stereo track for samples, loops and effects. The 4-channel input has a line level for connecting and mixing with an external MP3/CD player and a phono level for connecting vinyl turntables.
The preamplifiers on 4-channel inputs support high-level sources such as a CD player and turntables and each features a view-meter. The 2 stereo preamplifiers adjust the volume of the 4-channel analogue inputs. Finally, the DeeJay Trim 4&6 features a 3-port high-speed USB hub with power adapter to plug in your DJ controller and external storage devices. Powering the high-speed USB hub’s separately secures the audio output level on all configurations and avoids compatibility issues on some laptops whose USB ports have a too low voltage.
The Hercules DeeJay Trim 4&6 will be available in June 2009 for $249.99. The DeeJay Trim 4&6 is compatible with Windows XP and Vista (32-bit & 64-bit)/WDM and ASIO, as well as Mac OS 10.4 & 10.5. More information on the Hercules DeeJay Trim 4&6.
