Hercules has presented the DJControl Instinct P8 entry-level dj controller, a replacement for the aging DJControl Instinct. The big change is the 8 backlit performance pads that control different functions, such as loops, fx, sample & cue.

The controller comes with DJUCED 40 dj software, not one of the big names but it does the job well. The look & feel of this controller reminds a lot the Hercules P32 DJ controller I reviewed a few months ago, and to be frank I quite liked the feeling of it.

The DJControl Instinct P8 is USB powered and has a simple RCA output.

Is it any good? Let me judge when I get the chance to review it! But my first impression is that for the money this is a descent entry-level controller.

The controller is available now and costs USD 129. For more details, check the Hercules site.
