I currently have a Hercules DJ Console, and it has been a trusted piece of my setup for about 2 years. I am feeling the need to move on soon- and get a better grade sound card. I find the drivers and build quality of the DJ Console are pretty weak. There is no way to adjust incoming volume levels in the driver (except the phono/line switches on the back). This makes it annoying - or almost impossible to use CDJs to control DJ Decks for me (signal always way too hot coming in). Also- the output levels are ALWAYS super low-- and i get the sense that the dj console might be distorting the sound if i crank the driver's volume levels. I always have to gain up the channel on the dj mixer to nearly maximum just to be comparable to other inputs. I'd like to keep using the dj console as a backup controller but i don't want to use it as a sound card any more.

Hercules DEEJAY TRIM 4&6 -- Any good?

Check out this 'DEEJAY TRIM' product. NAme isn't that 'cool'... but is it comparable to some of the other high-grade sound cards out there?

Thanks!

Can someone tell me if the serato live box is much better than teh Hercules DJ console mk2 sound card?

I imagine it would be a much hotter signal- and better built. I borrowed my friend's serato setup and will try it out.


thanks

Just an update- I failed at getting the Serato box to work with DJ Decks. I looked into the ASIO drivers etc, but it just didn't play nice. The drivers were very limited and it wasn't a success!

boo hoo
