- +
-The Hercules ​DJ Control ​Compact ​is a great, simple controller that works well for basic two-channel mixing. ​ Due to its small size, many buttons perform more than one function. ​ For instance although it doesn'​t have rate sliders, the controller has two jog wheels which can also be used to adjust the playback rate. +
- +
-This device does not have a built in sound card, so it would require a [[hardware compatibility#​splitter cables|splitter cable]] or [[hardware compatibility#​usb sound cards|separate sound card]] to be able to preview tracks in headphones. It also does not have buttons for routing decks to headphones. +
- +
-===== Mapping description ===== +
-The play/pause buttons, EQ knobs, volume knobs, and crossfader all behave as labeled. If you would like to change the mapping of the EQ knobs (for example to change the mid EQ knob to control the high EQ or filter), use the [[http://​mixxx.org/​manual/​latest/​chapters/​advanced_topics.html#​controller-wizard|MIDI Mapping Wizard]] or [[MIDI controller mapping file format|edit the XML file]]. +
- +
-Shift + Play jumps to the beginning of the track and stops playback. +
- +
-The cue button behaves differently depending on the [[http://​mixxx.org/​manual/​latest/​chapters/​user_interface.html#​interface-cue-modes|cue mode set in Mixxx'​s Preferences]]. +
- +
-The sync button synchronizes the tempo to the other deck. Press and hold sync to engage [[http://​mixxx.org/​manual/​latest/​chapters/​djing_with_mixxx.html#​master-sync|Master Sync]]. +
- +
-There is only one each of the Mode, Shift, and Scratch buttons, so they affect both decks. +
- +
-Shift + Scratch (Automix) toggles AutoDJ on/off. +
- +
-==== Jog Wheels ==== +
-When Scratch is off, turning a jog wheel bends the pitch of the track. When Scratch is on, turning a jog wheel scratches that deck. Holding Shift and turning a jog wheel adjusts the playback rate (tempo). Enable keylock on a deck by clicking the music note button on screen if you do not want the pitch to change when adjusting the tempo. +
- +
-==== Pad Grid ==== +
- +
-Press the MODE button to cycle through each pad mode. +
- +
-=== Loop mode === +
- +
-In loop mode, the buttons are mapped in a way that's more artistically expressive:​ +
- +
-  * Button 1 enables and disables the loop +
-  * Button 2 enables an 8 beat loop +
-  * Button 3 divides the current loop in half +
-  * Button 4 doubles the length of the current loop +
-  * Shift + Button 1 performs an 1/8th beat roll +
-  * Shift + Button 2 performs an 1/4th beat roll +
-  * Shift + Button 3 performs an 1/2th beat roll +
-  * Shift + Button 4 performs an 1 beat roll +
- +
-=== FX mode === +
- +
-  * Button 1 enables and disables the first FX chain for Channel 1 +
-  * Button 2 enables and disables the second FX chain for Channel 1 +
-  * Button 1 enables and disables the first FX chain for Channel 2 +
-  * Button 2 enables and disables the second FX chain for Channel 2 +
- +
-Shift-FX buttons are not mapped. +
- +
-=== Sampler mode === +
- +
-  * Left side buttons play Sample Decks 1 through 4 +
-  * Right side buttons play Sample Decks 5 through 8 +
-  * Shift + Buttons stops Sample Deck and puts the playhead at the cue point +
- +
-=== Cue mode === +
- +
-  * Each button activates the hotcue with that number +
-  * Shift + button clears the hotcue with that number +
- +
- +
-===== MIDI Mapping Reference ===== +
- +
-Much of the Compact'​s behavior is hard-coded into its firmware, including shift button messages and button mode selections. +
