In collaboration with Serato, Hercules has launched the next generation of its top-selling Inpulse 300 DJ controller: The DJ Control Inpulse 300 MK2. Its new jog wheels are slimmer, turn more smoothly, and offer a higher touch sensitivity, which is absolutely essential for perfect scratching, and the redesigned rubber pads with improved back-lighting now respond even faster to the DJ’s actions. Thanks to the company’s cooperation with Serato, this DJ controller is perfectly compatible with Serato Pro and even allows the brand new Serato Stems to be intuitively used via the hardware. It also comes with a free license for Serato Lite and Hercules’ DJUCED software, so DJs can get started with mixing right away.
Extremely easy to use for novice DJs
The Inpulse 300 MK2 can be powered solely via a laptop and the included USB cable without a mains power adapter.

What is more, hot cues and loops can be set on the streamed tracks and are immediately available whenever the track is reloaded – starting a DJ career has never been easier.
In the spotlight
With today’s omnipresent sync button, manual beatmatching may appear rather anachronistic to some. However, not every track has a perfect grid, which is particularly true for older Funk, Disco, or House music with a highly variable tempo, and means that DJs cannot fully rely on automatic synchronisation. With its innovative Beatmatch Guide, the Hercules DJ Control Inpulse 300 MK2 helps inexperienced DJs learn in a fun way how to manually beatmatch and mix two songs. They will find it particularly easy to manually adjust the BPM of tracks in accordance with the LED arrows next to the tempo faders and decide whether a track needs to be accelerated or slowed down for mixing thanks to the additional LED arrows below each jog wheel. This way, the integrated Beatmatch Guide quickly teaches novices all the essential skills of a professional DJ who knows how to beatmatch without any technical aids whenever necessary.
