Hercules Updates DJ Console Controller To MK4 Status
Hercules has announced the DJ Console Mk4, a mixing console with a compact design and analog audio source connectivity. This new mixer for amateur to mobile DJ’s is an updated version of their DJ Console and DJ Console Mk2 and features several improvements and additions.
Built for mobile DJing, the DJ Console Mk4 features a strikingly modern design with a thinner, but wider body, than the previous model, the DJ Console Mk2. It also includes more precise jog wheels, 4 browser buttons instead of a joystick, more space between the cross fader and jog wheels and backlit buttons for ease of use during low-light conditions. Compact (7.36” x 10.4” x 2.5”) and lighter than a laptop computer (2.5lb) with large, non-slip feet for stability while mixing, users can take the Hercules DJ Console Mk4 anywhere.
