    Reviews/Thoughts about Hercules Universal DJ & Hercules P32DJ

    Hello everyone,

    A friend of mine is looking to sell me some of his older DJ equipment and I wanted to ask your advice about it before I took the plunge.

    He's got a Hercules DJ Universal and P32DJ also by Herc. I've read some good reviews but I was hoping for some more in depth advice from people who've actually tried the stuff...

    So has anybody used either of these? If you have, what do you like about them? Do you use the special features like the Panic button or App (for the Universal) or do you mostly ignore them?

    Any input would help - he's offering me a good price so I just need a little "push" before I make this purchase.

    Also relevant: I'm not an experienced DJ ....yet

    Thanks for your input,

    Mo

    Youíll get lots of opinions, so you are the one who must decide. The Hercules Universal DJ is a low cost, entry level controller. Brand new, theyíre less than $200, so you wonít be sinking much money in it. On the other hand, it wonít likely be your primary controller for very long. It might make a good little backup controller though; one you could actually perform with if your main controller fails.

    Iíve never had hands on with the Hercules Universal DJ, so I canít say whether itís good or bad, but reviewers have been highly critical of the feel of the cross fader and other controls. I bought myself a little Pioneer DDJ-WeGO3 to use with a tablet PC as a backup system, and it has a high quality feel IMO.

    Some will probably recommend that you save up and get a high quality controller. Thatís fine, but if youíre getting a great deal and understand that youíre gonna outgrow the Hercules pretty quickly, thereís nothing wrong with buying it to begin learning on.😊
