This review is from: Hercules DJControl Air USB DJ Controller
Pros: Cheap! Big bang for your buck, small and portable, light. The pads are sensitive but not overly touchy. Headphone input is 1/4" jack, great for monitor headphones. Sliders/control knobs have a tactile "click" when they pass into their neutral state. USB is fused, more of a personal thing as I tend to lose/tangle cables when they're loose
Cons: Jog wheels are hyper sensitive: there's almost no resistance. This could be a thing of personal preference for someone. The mix output is only a 1/8" jack, which isn't huge for the home user but can become a problem for convenience/sound quality at venues with large speaker setups. The beat grid lights aren't lighting up when connected to Traktor Pro 2 (Could be a configuration issue) The "air" sensor seems a little gimmicky: as far as I know, the sensor only seems to work for effect triggering when using the included software. So far hasn't worked with Traktor Pro 2 or Virtual DJ Pro
Other Thoughts: If you're looking for an intro into mixing or a very small portable controller for on the go, this is the controller for you. A side note, any software besides the included software will require a custom mapping file in order to work properly
