Not quite the minimalist design you’d expect from an Apple add-on, but nevertheless Hercules Technologies has just released a new version of its DJ Console that’s compatible with Macs. The console is designed to allow users to play and mix MP3 and other music files like they could with a normal set of record decks. You can also do more fancy stuff not possible on record decks, like loop segments of a track and add effects in real-time. The press release is keen to point out that it’s got 28 buttons on it, which seems more than satisfactory to us – even though we have no idea what they’re all meant to do. The Console has been designed to be portable and connects to Macs via a USB connection so you can get your mobile discotheque on the road in no time. It’s out on 18th October for around £199.
