If the idea of dragging a heavy case of vinyl to the local bar doesn’t appeal, there is an easier way of living out the dream of being the superstar DJ – the DJ Control MP3 from Hercules.
It works via a PC, but forget the mouse and keyboard, the DJ Control packs everything you need into the box. With two wheels of steel (well, plastic) emulating two vinyl turntables, a cross fader slider and two volume sliders, eight EQ and pitch knobs and 28 action buttons, you’ve got everything you need to get the party started. Effects, loops and changes in tempo let you adapt the music without any interruptions and create your very own mixes.
Boring traditionalists like myself might hate the idea, but there’s no getting away from the fun you can have mixing your MP3s for a group of friends. You can pick up the DJ Control MP3 for around £80 at various high street retailers.
