Hercules DJ Console RMX 2

This all-in-one DJ controller features a built in 4 channel sound card with balanced XLR master outputs and a balanced microphone input. It is a USB class compliant MIDI and audio device (unlike older Hercules controllers).

User Options

To change the mapping's user options, you have to open the script file (*.js). At the top of the file under USER OPTIONS the following settings can be made:

  • DJCRMX2.jogwheelSensivity: Sets the jogwheel sensivity. 1 = default, 2 is twice as sensitive, 0.5 is half as sensitive.
  • DJCRMX2.jogwheelShiftMultiplier: Sets how much more sensitive the jogwheels get when holding [SHIFT]. Set it to 1 to disable jogwheel sensitivity increase when holding [SHIFT].
  • DJCRMX2.twinkleVumeterAutodjOn: If true, level-meter twinkles if AutoDJ is enabled.
  • DJCRMX2.autoPFL: If true, PFL / Cue (headphone) is being activated by loading a track into certain deck.
  • DJCRMX2.vuMeterOutputMaster: If true, deck vu meters show master output (L = Deck A, R = Deck B). If false, deck vu meter shows deck output (mono).
  • DJCRMX2.showHideSamplersEffectsOnPadMode: If true, Samplers and EffectRack get shown or hidden in dependance of Pad-Mode.
