Hercules has just announced the new Wireless Bluetooth DJ controller called the DJControlWave. The DJControlWave controller is a two-channel DJ device which integrates perfectly with the iPad using the DJUCED app and also works with computers using the built in USB connection. The DJControlWave controller is a true wireless system that has its own internal rechargeable battery and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity which means you can DJ without any wires at all.
The internal battery also charges via the USB connection and is capable of eight hours of playtime. The DJControlWave has two touch-sensitive jog wheels, three faders for volume control and the usual 3-Band EQ knobs per channel. There are pitch sliders to control the tempo and there is an oversized knob in the middle for browsing through tracks. Towards the top there are three buttons on each side that can control FX, Samples, and Hotcues. In the middle of these buttons there is a huge slot that will allow the user to dock the iPad nice and neat.
On the downside, the DJControlWave does not have any internal soundcards for headphone or speaker connections, so the iPad or computer soundcard will have to handle these output functions. We'll be sure to put this to the test as soon as we get our hands on one this Spring when they will retail for about $300. Check out the website and official Press release below.
