Hercules has done it again! They have just recently announced the newest addition to their Digital DJ Controller lineup called the Hercules DJ Control Air which allows the DJ to use their hands in "mid-air" to control different playback parameters such as effects. This very compact USB DJ controller gives DJ's Air control via a small sensor at the top center of the face of the controller and a total of eight touch-pads to trigger different cue points, effects, and loops. Check out more information on this $170 controller along with a quick demo video below. I have recently turned down the video review on these, but if you think its something you really want to see, let me know and I'll get it right away!
[Video] Hercules DJ Control Air+ Unboxing & First Impressions
Some time ago, we reviewed the Hercules RMX-2 and the 4-MX DJ controllers which were both made of metal and had lots of professional features for all levels of DJ's. This week, we received the newest Hercules DJ controller called the Control Air+ (Plus) which is an update to the first Control Air which is the first DJ controller to integrate an IR sensor to control effect parameters. The Control Air+ has an updated layout and more features than the original.
