    The Mk4 is an updated version of their earlier, top-selling models worldwide, the DJ Console and DJ Console Mk2, and features a multitude of improvements and additions. Featuring a cutting-edge design, this Hercules Mk4 includes 2 decks and a high-performance audio interface, making it a real, all-in-one DJ station for PC and Mac users.

    Built for mobile DJing, the DJ Console Mk4 features a strikingly modern design with a thinner but wider body than the previous model, the DJ Console Mk2. The metallic-colored surface top with a see-through plate and new body provides a comfortable mixing solution to any DJ.

    It also includes more precise jog wheels, 4 browser buttons instead of a joystick, more space between the cross fader and jog wheels, and backlit buttons for ease of use during low-light conditions.

    • 1 microphone jack (1/4” / 6.35mm), with talk-over function
    • 1 headphone jack (1/4” / 6.35mm), for previewing tracks
