Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2

2. Overall impressions

After several days playing with the Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2 product, we can safely say that we have to do with a fine product. Nicely-priced below the €100 and with the proper software, DJs can work out miracles. The faders and knobs are responsive and accurate despite their plastic and delicate look.

The layout is minimal, meaning some functions have been removed in favor of the overall size and portability of the device. The jogs are just OK for normal use. However, DJs who are keen on scratching and fast moves will be disappointed. Don't forget that we are talking about an entry-level product here.

If you are looking for a lightweight midi controller featuring the basic functions for your home DJ nights and parties, the Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2 is what you are looking for. It would be nice if Hercules released another version with a sound card onboard. With a proper price (below €150), such a product would be complete and really attractive to have.

From our point of view, users may need to pay some additional bucks to get the VDJ Pro edition software since it offers a much better performance/usability than the VDJ 3 DLC edition bundled with the device. After all, VirtualDJ offers a 20-day full working demo that would allow you to explore the potentials of the software/hardware system.
