The Hercules DJControl Inpulse 500 is a high-quality 2-deck DJ controller with a professional design and excellent features for entry-level DJing. The robust DJ controller is designed for the included Serato DJ Lite and DJUCED software and offers streaming support.

For building creative DJ sets, you get two jog wheels with touch detection for scratching, a dedicated filter/FX section and 16 backlit RGB rubber pads for triggering hot cues, loops, slices and samples. The Beatmatch Guide makes manual tempo syncing easy, and the Intelligent Music Assistant (IMA) helps with music selection. Audio input and output signal processing is handled by AKM's integrated Velvet Sound DSP. Furthermore, the USB-powered Hercules DJControl Inpulse 500 features connections for external sources and four extendable and retractable non-slip feet.

Streaming support

Thanks to streaming support, you can access millions of tracks for varied DJ mixes with Serato via TIDAL and SoundCloud Go+ and with DJUCED via Beatport LINK, Beatsource LINK and Qobuz. The prerequisite for this is a subscription to the respective platform.

Hercules - DJControl Inpulse 500 / Beatmatching Guide

Beatmatch Guide

Thanks to the Beatmatch Guide and dedicated display, matching tracks is simplified. The help tool is also supported by DJUCED and Serato DJ Lite.

Hercules - DJControl Inpulse 500 / IMA

Intelligent Music Assistant (IMA)

When the Assistant button is pressed, music suggestions for the next track from your own library, Beatport LINK and Beatsource LINK are displayed in the DJUCED software. In Serato DJ Lite, the Assistant can be used to start the autoplay mode.

Hercules - DJControl Inpulse 500 / FX/Filter

Filter / FX

The Filter/FX section allows you to enhance your DJ set with effects from Serato DJ Lite and DJUCED. You can even use the filter at the same time as the DJUCED effects.

Hercules - DJControl Inpulse 500 / Aux input/aux filter

Aux connection including aux filter

For connecting a smartphone or media player, the Hercules DJControl Inpulse 500 is equipped with an RCA aux input or a 3.5 mm stereo mini jack on the rear panel. In addition to accessing the volume via Aux Vol., the dedicated Aux Filter allows you to reduce the Bass or treble of external audio sources, regardless of the software.

Hercules - DJControl Inpulse 500 / Extendable feet

Solid, extendable feet

The Hercules DJControl Inpulse 500's retractable feet are very practical: they light up even when extended, allow connected cables to be positioned under the DJ controller and protect valuable DJ equipment from spilled drinks.

Hercules - DJControl Inpulse 500 / Microphone connection

Balanced microphone input

The balanced microphone input allows the connection of a microphone. The corresponding High and Low EQ controls can be used to compensate for overemphasis or lack of emphasis in the corresponding frequency range. The VU meter helps to level the microphone signal.

Crossfader adjustment

The Curve Switch allows you to adjust the response of the crossfader to your preferred style of music. Modes include Mix for smoother transitions, Scratch for hard cuts, and Off to bypass Crossfader.

Hercules - DJControl Inpulse 500 / Crossfader Curve Switch

The Velvet Sound Digital Signal Processor (DSP) from AKM is responsible for the sound in 24-bit / 44.1 kHz resolution. Master outputs with 2 x 6.35 mm jack and 2 x RCA are available for connecting the speaker boxes. For DJ monitoring, there are two headphone connections (3.5 mm stereo mini jack and 6.35 mm stereo jack). The Hercules DJControl Inpulse 500 also features a balanced microphone input in 6.35 mm jack format and an aux input (2 x RCA and 3.5 mm stereo jack).
