Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreFredericton, New Brunswick
I recently decided to move away from vinyl and sold my Technics SL-1210s mostly due to the cost of buying records. I had my Technics for 15+ years and was looking for something that could fill the void. I decided to research some controllers and decided on the Hercules Impulse 300. I cannot put this controller down it is fun to use and I really enjoy using it. Overall this controller has a decent feel to it in terms of jog wheels/platters stiffness. It should be noted that the jog wheels are touch sensitive so you can perform precise beat matching adjustments by touching the top suface of the jog wheel and fine adjustments by using the edges of the jog wheel. I like that this controller has a gain plus high, mid and low EQs. The buttons and knobs feel good and the crossfade can be adjusted within the software. I enjoy the djuced software and have not en ountered any crashes or critical defects. A few things I would not mind seeing added to this unit: Longer speed spiders.
