I love technology, but when it comes to the art of the DJ, I’m very old fashioned – I want vinyl records and proper decks. But not everyone is as anal as I am – and there’s probably a good market for playing DJ with something like the Hercules Mobile DJ wireless MP3 mixer.
And in truth, it’s likely to go down a storm at a party. What you get is a battery-powered two deck controller, allowing you to mix, scratch and synchronise CDs, MP3 tracks and WAV files. And there’s an integrated double screen showing the details of the tracks, plus cross fader, pitch and volume.
But here’s the clever part – unlike similar devices, this one doesn’t need a permanent attachment to your PC, being a wireless (radio frequency) set-up. So you can control your music and choose your tracks without having to sit in front of a screen. Which means everyone can have a go at playing their favourite tunes – and when everyone is bored of that, there’s an auto feature to keep the music playing as a mix.
The Hercules Mobile DJ wireless MP3 mixer is available now from Amazon, priced at £59.
