Hercules RMX2 & DJuced 40 Degrees Review

 

If you are familiar with the Hercules line of DJ controllers you may notice some familiar things about the RMX2. At first glance it looks very similar to the Hercules 4MX with the same design and shape of that popular 4 channel controller. The release of the DJ Control Air earlier this year garnered enough attention that Hercules decided to integrate the four pads from that controller onto the RMX2.

The entire rig  contains more effects pedals and stomp boxes than can be listed in this short article, but with 3 patch points – it can be setup in under 5 minutes.

AKG DMS70 Dual digital wireless system

AKG has been a leader in the  microphones and headphone department, not only in performance but in their design originality.  Their studio headphones are some of the most used, and offer supreme comfort.  The next logical step for them to take is to bridge the gap in-between with their DMS70 Dual Digital wireless system.

This new digital transmitter system has not come without its complications, especially when choosing which frequency range to use without requiring a license.  Regardless, the transmitter and receiver have been built to provide 24bit 48 kHz uncompressed audio with an un-boosted response for those working in the studio setting.…
