What is this DJ controller equipped with?

The DJ controller has 2 decks (A and B), and by using the shift button this can be extended to 4 decks (C and D). Each deck is equipped with a three-band EQ control, a volume fader, a filter button, 4 effects buttons and buttons for cue, loop, slicer and sampler. In addition, Hercules P32 is equipped with a browse button for searching in music libraries to add tracks.”

The DJ controller is also equipped with a handy slip function, which memorizes the position of the track you are playing at that moment. So when you use the loop, sampler or for example the slicer function you can make sure that the song jumps back to the original position in the timeline where the track would have been if it had continued playing normally. This is a great way to play without losing the phrasing of your track


The Hercules P32 is a compact and versatile DJ controller for creative DJs that also looks great. Because the DJ controller comes with DJ software and has a built-in audio interface, you only need a laptop, speakers, and music to use it.
