Portable DJ

I really wanted a small dj controller to use along side my laptop for easy desk mixing. This is the perfect solution. Comes will all the features you will need to dj. For anyone who has deejayed in the past with large dj mixers, turntables, CDJ's and crates of vinyl and CDs this is a blessing, everything is portable and easy to use.

As always, i'm very critical of the equipment I purchase. Ok here we go. Obviously, the main purpose of buying this unit is the portability factor, so that's cool. Also for such a small controller, I like the features it has. Now my gripes. #1 the main output has static if you touch it. I really DO NOT like those mini jacks. This should come with a 1/4 inch jack and a MUCH better mini jack. #2 the controls are not as sensitive as they should be, especially the crossfader. You have to move it like 1 /4 before it starts to affect the software crossfader. When I first got it I was wondering why I could not hear the mix coming in, until I noticed how long it took to affect the software. This will throw off those real fine scratches and mixing dj's have to adjust when doing those smooth mixes. #3 The headphone output should be louder, especially considering this unit will be used in all types of situations -- including loud outdoor hangouts #4 since the unit has the space for it, the pitch control should be longer and smoother. I have traktor set to a very low 4% pitch control, but since the pitch control itself is not that smooth, it's difficult to ride the pitch smoothly. So of course this is an inexpensive unit, but my three suggestions isn't asking for much. Anyway, as a whole, I like it because I can take it to hang out anywhere and just start dj'ing. If this is your main purpose, this unit is good for that. But if you're looking for a little more, I suggest looking elsewhere.  -- DJ Action Vasquez

Great price and fast delivery! Unfortunately the product only gave me about a month or so of use before it started glitching out. The headphone jack needed to be wiggled a bit also to get the sound right also! But what else could you expect from a plastic product. Can I replace this possibly? I’m not sure if warranty was included.

It shorts and freezes, it small and easy to learn but after a few days it’s worthless.

First, lets look at this for what it is. It is a small portable controller. And it works great for what it is. #1, it has a built-in sound card so you can output directly to your speakers and use your headphone. #2, you can use your points, effects, samples, loops and use high/low pass filter. #3 Pitch control sliders worked excellent, smooth and accurate. #4, there is a master out and volume control for both channels. This gives you plenty of control for your mixes. While this does not compare to your high-end Newmarks, Pioneers or other pro controllers, it makes the perfect back up or travel controller and the price makes it a no brained. I use it with Serato Dj pro, yes I paid for it and love the results. No other mini controller I have found gives you so many options at this price.

Asked by: John
Most users have reported that the Hercules DJControl Starlight is not compatible for use with Chromebooks running ChromeOS, but some have said that it may be possible to get it to work if the Chromebook is running Windows OS or if it supports Android. It may be possible to use it with the Serato DJ Lite app for Android on the Chromebook. We have not tested it so you should definitely do more research before purchasing the Hercules DJControl Starlight to use with your Acer Chromebook as it may not work.
