-The Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2, MP3 LE, and Glow are USB controllers that have identical controls and share the same mapping. These controllers do not have a built in sound card, so a [[hardware compatibility#​splitter cables|splitter cable]] or [[hardware compatibility#​USB sound cards|separate sound card]] is recommended for use with it. They are not class compliant MIDI devices. [[Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2 old|Older versions of Mixxx]] required using Hercules'​ MIDI driver, but this driver can be a hassle to set up and maintain on Linux, so it is recommended only for Windows and Mac OS X. If you have it installed with Linux, it is recommended ​to uninstall ​the driver ​and upgrade to the [[http://​mixxx.org/​download|latest version of Mixxx]] if you have not already. Support for using the MP3 LE and Glow as USB Bulk controllers without the driver on Linux is available in development versions of Mixxx and will be included in Mixxx 2.1, but the MP3 e2 works with Mixxx 2.0.+The Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2, MP3 LE, and Glow are USB controllers that have identical controls and share the same mapping.
