INPUTS & SETTINGS
The Hercules DJControl Inpulse 500 offers a AUX and a MIC Input (connections at the rear panel) to connect an auxiliary media source and/or a Microphone respectively. The signal of both of these inputs can be routed directly to the Master Output or to the Input of the USB Audio Interface.
The selection can be done via the VirtualDJ Settings->OPTIONS tab->Controllers category and will be saved across sessions.
Note that when closing VirtualDJ, the inputs will be automatically routed to Master Output.
When the HardwareMicAux setting is set to Yes (default value), the MIC and AUX Inputs are routed directly to the Master Output. In this case, the signal of these inputs is not recorded along with your mix, and the MIC and/or LINE/AUX buttons in VirtualDJ GUI will not affect the inputs.
When the HardwareMicAux setting is set to No , the MIC and AUX Inputs are routed to the Input of the USB Audio interface of the device. In this case, the signal of these inputs is recorded along with your mix, and the MIC and/or LINE/AUX buttons in VirtualDJ GUI will affect the inputs.
Note that regardless the HardwareMicAux setting, the top-panel AUX/MIC controls (Equalizer, Level, Filter) will still apply to the signal of these inputs, before sent to either Master Output or USB Audio Interface Input.
Hold down Pads 1 ,5 on left side and Pads 4, 8 on right side for about 3 seconds to turn on/off the Bottom-Feet Backlight leds of the Hercules Inpulse 500.
