Have you got a signal going to the console. Are the beats indicaters flashing when a track is playing

or do you mean that the VDJ software won't load any tracks up.

What's your set up.

Well i want to know if theres something working with the console or the hardware.

I reinstalled it. But every time start it up I get the DJ console Mk2 Updater and it keeps telling me to press down on the LEFT 1,2,3 Buttons on the DJ console Mk2. I press the buttons but it wont respond I pluged it in correctly and the the updater window wont close..

When I start VDJ I am able to load tracks but play them cant start playing them when the MK2 Console is plugged, I get a highlighted Cue button on the side the audio file is loaded . VDJ works without the Hercules Hk2 console.

That happens to me if I plug the Herc into a different USB port.

It sound's like you have something wrong with the new driver you have downloaded.

If I was you I would do a fresh install of VDJ and the hercules console and software.

Uninstall/remove

Hercules audio files
hercules DJ console series drivers
DJ console mk2 manual
Virtual DJ - Atmotix productions
Then restart your pc/laptop.

Then reinstall your software and Console and see if you get a similar program when you are up and running again.

Also it's worth remembering to plug the console into the same usb port all the time.

Hope this helps

Are you pressing the 123 buttons and holding them down or are u just pressing them and releasin them. You have to press them and hold them down til the screen changes.

i also have a problem with my console, for some reason the selecter on the monitor output doesn't work properly, i can't get it to play properly on split mode, for example, when i'm on split mode, and the crossfader is maximum to the left, i can't hear the right deck at all, if the corssfader is on the middle and the right volume fader is totally down, i can't hear the right deck at all, and regardless of what i do, i can only hear in one headphone.

apologies if this is a really obvious suggestion but this caught me out already and I thought I'd post here as it sounds similar to my experience...

when the crossfader is all the way to the right playing a track on deck B and you want to do a split (have track on deck A on the left headphone and track on deck B on the right) make sure you have the "PFL" indicator illuminated on deck A (it is above the volume control for deck A on the software) - Note I am using the skin Virtual DJ: 1024x768

Hi, I have lost my serial number since I moved house, very desperate that I find it. I never registered my equipment when I bought it so feel a bit lost. Does anyone know how to help??

Thanku!!

Hello,

You should call Hercules Tech Support, and if you kept a buying proof of your DJ Console Mk2 (the invoice), they can provide you a replacement license for VDJ 3.4 DJC (they can resell you a VDJ 3.4 DJC license), but if you have no invoice for the Mk2, they cannot sell you this VDJ 3.4 DJC license (as they can sell the VDJ 3.4 DJC license only to owners of DJ Console Mk2 VDJ version, so if you have no invoice, they cannot know whether you bought the DJ Console Mk2 sold with Traktor or the DJ Console Mk2 sold with VirtualDJ).

If you get a serial number from Hercules, type your serial number in your profile on VirtualDJ.com website.

Hello Panos,

To use the Mk2 in VirtualDJ Pro 6.0.2:
1) you install DJ Console Mk2
2) You set DJ Console Mk2 in ASIO,
3) you run Virtual,
4) you go in Config > Sound setup and you choose "DJConsole MK2" as sound board, and you activate the setting "Apply EQ on external input"
5) you go in Config > Mappers and you load the map "Hercules DJ Console Mk2".
