The black DJ Control AIR Street Edition from Hercules is a 2-deck DJ controller featuring jog wheels with pressure detection, 8 velocity sensitive pads, and Air control (1 contact-less control). The controller also comes with an intuitive DJ software.
Adjustment by InfraRed (AIR) is a contactless control sensor that allows you to control the mix from above, without even touching the device. When you place your hand flat over the infrared beam, the controller calculates the distance between the sensor and your hand, and converts it into a gradual MIDI command. This MIDI command modulates a setting in the DJ software. Since the sensor captures the infrared reflection on the hand to calculate the distance, and the reflection is the same in both daylight and low light conditions, AIR control functions under any light conditions.
The 2 sets of 4 sensitive pads control loops, sampler, and effects commands, which are activated when you tap on the pads with your fingertips. The pads light up when touched and the playback volume depends on how soft or hard you tap on the pad.
The controller features 2 pressure-detecting jog wheels that allow you to stop or restart playback, scratch or stop scratching when the scratch mode is enabled. In addition, with the scratch mode disabled, you can bend the pitch when playback is on and browse within tracks when playback is off.
