We all know the big names in the DJ software world. And frankly they don’t need our help to keep you informed of whatever new and sure to be future essential features they’re adding into their respective apps. But we have a thing for the plucky underdog — the lesser known names that you should know in a world dominated by giants. And while Hercules is a long way from unknown, their DJuced software barely registers on anyone’s radar. But they do indeed make solid software specifically for their own controllers, and DJuced 4o has been updated to v3.6, with some key improvements and additions.
Hercules Releases the Latest and Greatest Version of Its DJUCED™ 40° Software: 3.6
Take advantage of the continuing evolution of DJUCED™ to unleash all your creativity
New York – September 21, 2017 – Say hello to version 3.6: Pursuing their goal of constant improvement and creativity without any limits, the DJUCED™ teams announced today the launch of DJUCED™ 40° 3.6, an evolution of DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 version that was introduced earlier this year at the 2017 NAMM Show.
DJUCED™ 40° 3.6 now includes the following new features and improvements, highly anticipated by members of its DJ community.
CPU optimization: Vital for all DJs. The DJUCED™ teams have succeeded in reducing CPU use by 50%, freeing up the computer’s resources for all other tasks and letting DJs have fun and lower their stress levels.
Post-fader FX: Reverb and delay effects are no longer cut off when using the volume fader. Instead, effects are applied after the volume fader to still hear the end of effects when a deck’s volume fader is brought down. Perfect for improving quick transitions.
Reworked scratch engine: DJUCED™ 40° version 3.5 had already improved this function. Based on benchmark turntables, version 3.6 ensures perfect scratching with unified rotation speed on all controllers. As all Hercules products are designed with the needs of DJs in mind, you can now change controllers without losing any of your track markers. Scratch samples have been added to the demo folder, with cue points conveniently included for DJs.
“Computer MIX OUT”: Use both the computer’s sound card and the controller’s sound card simultaneously. Perfect for using the computer’s speakers and the headphones at the same time.
Instant display: The controller’s display now responds faster than ever before.
Evolution of “Smart Mix”: The Smart Mix only starts at the end of the currently playing track. The result is a perfectly smooth transition between your own mix and the Smart Mix.
The new version 3.6 update of DJUCED™ 40° will be available for download from September 21, 2017, directly from the DJUCED.com website (in the Downloads section).
Drop by to meet the Hercules and DJUCED™ teams at BPM | PRO 2017 in Birmingham, England on October 22 and 23, 2017.
