Explore your mixing potential with the DJControl Inpulse 500 controller from Hercules. This controller is intended as a tool for refining your skills and performing with confidence in front of a live audience. Its professional, heavy-duty design boasts a sturdy metal back plate, non-slip feet with adjustable lengths to elevate your mixing, and an intuitive layout that includes professional-level features such as a dedicated Filter/FX area that allows you to customize your set, two large jog wheels with touch detection for scratching, 16 backlit rubber RGB pads, and helpful light guides. The DJControl Inpulse 500 is powered by DJUCED, and is compatible with Serato DJ Lite, TIDAL and SoundCloud GO+, and Beatport LINK, Beatsource LINK, and Qobuz—so you can use music streaming services when you mix.

DJUCED® is a premium DJ software designed to guide you step-by-step through the process of becoming a DJ. DJUCED comes with integrated DJ Academy tutorials, integrated help, and automatic assistants that teach you all the techniques and hone the instincts you need to put on your first show. Its Beatmatch Guide uses backlighting to show you the moves. An Intelligent Music Assistant (IMA) provides recommendations for tracks as you sculpt your distinctive taste. Finally, you can learn to manage the party atmosphere with DJUCED ENERGY, a feature that helps you control the pace, tempo, and ambiance of your mix—and by extension the mood of your audience.

Connectivity is a major feature of the DJControl Inpulse 500. It offers master outputs for plugging in speakers (2 x 1/4” / 6.35 mm jack + 2 x RCA), two headphone connectors (1/8” / 3.5 mm stereo mini-jack + 1/4” / 6.35 mm stereo jack), as well as a balanced input for a microphone. Additionally, you can connect an audio source (such as a smartphone or media player) and use the “AUX filter” knob to add effects from outside the controller’s integrated software.
