London, August 16, 2016 – Does the name ‘Instinct’ sound familiar? It should! The DJControl Instinct P8 is a supercharged version of the brand’s best-selling DJControl Instinct. Nothing has changed when it comes to providing DJs with the very best in performance and thanks to Hercules’ expertise and its user community’s feedback, this industry leading DJ controller has been recreated with even more features and a set of crowd pleasing, multi-coloured performance pads!
A Core DNA that is Tough and Tested
The DJControl Instinct P8 boasts the same strengths as its predecessor. Featuring an ultra-instinctive approach, combined with a compact and robust design, this all-in-one controller has built-in audio and essential mix and remix features.
Following the same philosophy, the DJControl Instinct P8 is a full-featured, simple and affordable controller. All you need is a computer (PC or Mac®) with a USB port to connect the controller, a set of speakers, headphones, some music files, and you’re all set to become the centre of the party.
From Mix to Performance
Hercules’ latest the DJControl Instinct P8 introduces something new: remixing! Thanks to its 8 multicolored pads and the latest version of DJUCED™ 40°, your mix can become something even greater: performance! Combined with DJUCED™ 40°’s multilayer sampler, its 8 ergonomic and responsive pads enable you to produce highly creative remixes, while also delivering a precise and high quality performance. DJUCED 40°’s intelligent design keeps the rhythm and the structure of tracks intact, no matter what you’re doing. DJUCED’s partnership with Loopmasters® will provide comprehensive and scalable content, via built-in sample packs.
Like its little brother, the DJControl Instinct P8 boasts a wealth of functionalities. The basics have been retained, but thanks to Hercules’ expertise, the controller has been revamped for 2016.
Newly implemented effects controls and adjustments include dedicated sync, cue and play/pause buttons; separate modes on each deck; temporary loop mode using the pads, or permanent loop mode using the encoder; 3-band EQ; extended functions via the Shift button; detachable USB cable and more – all these features ensure a comprehensive and intuitive mixing style.
Of course, the DJControl Instinct P8 includes a built-in sound card with a dual stereo RCA output for mixing and a stereo 3.5 mm mini-jack output for previewing. With its USB MIDI/Audio compatibility, the DJControl Instinct P8 is also compatible with most available DJ software.
The Hercules DJControl Instinct P8 will be available from September 2016, at the retail price of $129.99.
