Hercules has been bringing out media controllers since they were innovations in the DJ marketplace. Nowadays, it seems like every DJ company is bringing out their own all-in-one media controller just to say they have a product in that market place. Often times, the new units are exact re-incarnates of other manufacturer units that are already on shelves. The Hurcules 4-MX has just been announced so that DJ's who need access to 4 digital decks will now have a Hercules option to go on their list. The unit boasts two large jog wheels and functionality for 4-deck controls, along with an all-metal sturdy outer shell. Maybe they aren't all created equal after all. How this stacks up to the American Audio, Xone, or Native Instruments 4-deck digital units is anyone's guess, but we will be back to review a few of these highly requested units within the coming months, so stay tuned for more information coming shortly!
