Gives you everything you need for a high-level DJ performance
More than a mere training tool, the DJControl Inpulse 300 boasts all the right features for a high-level DJ performance. Its two smooth-feeling jog wheels offer a vinyl-like feel, touch detection, and a simulated scratch sound. Each deck features eight pads with eight modes: hot-cue, roll, slicer, sampler, TonePlay, FX, SlicerLoop, and BeatJump. Loop in/loop out keys makes manual loop creation a breeze, while browser controls make navigation easy. Slip mode restores your track’s play position as if you hadn’t looped or scratched when you exit a loop or finish scratching. High-quality FX are activated with a push, modulated on the FX pot, and include dry/wet mixing. Each channel includes a 3-band EQ with a filter for polishing your sound, plus tempo sliders and separate Gain knobs and Volume faders for crafting a proper mix. You also get a global crossfader, master volume, and separate headphones volume control. To top it off, you get a playback meter that enables you to keep an eye on your levels.
