Hercules Universal DJ Review: multi-function DJ Controller for Beginners

The Universal DJ is a great entry-level DJ controller from Hercules, a company which specializes in the beginner DJ segment. It’s advertised as “One Controller, Three Modes!” and is compatible with PC/Mac, Android, and iOS devices. It can even work via Bluetooth.

You can mix via Computer, Smartphone, Tablet in three different software modes using the included DJUCED software. The three modes supported by the controller are:

MODE 1 (Laptop Mode): Connect the controller to your laptop, for a tactile interface to control your DJ software.

MODE 2 (Multiscreen Mode): Use your mobile device as an extension of the DJ setup, wirelessly via Bluetooth.

MODE 3 (Tablet Mode): Operate a mobile device’s DJ software, wirelessly via Bluetooth.

The controller is well-built and rigid, and scores well in practicality for its size and shape.

The Universal DJ is geared towards beginner DJs. In fact, the software holds your hand through not only using the included DJUCED software, but actually helps you learn how to DJ in general.

While it does have some great features, I did encounter a few issues when using them… and I cover all that in this video. While my time with the device was generally enjoyable, I do have to wonder about using Bluetooth in the DJ booth.
