Review by Alex

Great little usb powered mixing desk, good for beginners like me, really enjoy using it.

Review by Otis

This controller is absolutely brilliant for beginner DJ's. Although it is small, the more you use it the less you notice the size. The looping, sampling and effects are all very easy to use although the software it comes with (DJUCED) is not the best so you would be better off going to and downloading the MIDI mapping for Traktor Pro 2 which is a lot easier and fun to use. The controllers inputs and outputs are brilliant as you have RCA and Mini Jack i/o which means you can hook the controller up to speakers and booth speakers. The jog wheels are just about good enough to scratch with but as i say this is a beginners controller so don't expect amazing quality jog wheels. The faders and cross fader are sturdy, as is the control itself, and as a whole it does not feel like it will break, despite being made of plastic. Overall i do not see many issues with DJ Control Instinct by Hercules, it is portable, easy to use and very good quality. You won't find it cheaper than this site so go and grab a bargain! I am moving on to a more advanced controller as it has more options and has a lot more functions etc but for beginners, you cant go wrong with this product.

Review by Lee M.

I've tried countless times to get into laptop DJing but hated the experience. I'm pleased to say that this restored my faith by being easy to set up and working exactly as I'd expect it to. I've no real need to beatmatch or scratch, but I'm willing to bet that this unit will accommodate your needs for it if you like that sort of thing. At the B Grade price, it's a fantastic way of finding out if laptop DJing is your thing.
