There are 1/4" and 3.5mm sockets for headphones allowing you to monitor your mix and professionally manage loops and transitions.

The DJ Control Instinct comes with DJUICED DJ software, allowing you to perform, record and share your mixes. Installations takes minutes and supports both Windows and Mac, with the software expanding and perfectly working with the controller. The DJ Control Instinct supports the most MIDI-capable DJ software, allowing you to use a diverse library of choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from next step up before pro DJ'ing. I've got one of these off the Internet this is the Mark 2 edition the mark 1 released 2006 ish or there about's came with a dust lid and Vitual dj 6, if your moving up from the Numark dj2go or Ion dj2go (both the same, different names) this is the one you need, you can use the mark 2 with Virtual dj which is far better as its the no.1 laptop mixing tool in the world, you can find how to get Virtual dj full on youtube, remember you don't get Virtual Dj with this model anymore (i don't know why), VDj is also great for Video djing with this, the pitch control is a flick type not like the one's on dj2go which might take some getting use to, you also get built in Base,Mid and Treble controls, you don't have use a external usb sound card, as this has a headphone socket and you can link it straight to an rca aux in on your cd stack system for sound from the back of the deck rca to rca or 3.5mm jack to 2 rca, or straight to speakers, i haven't used DJuced software as i started with PCDj then move to to Virtual Dj 7 Pro via 5 and 6, i don't need Djuced. this is just as good as a high pro deck and works well for Dj Sets including mine this wont let you down and it's not all about the name of the deck, HURCULES are very good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Uncompatable Asthetically pleasing and seems to be perfect for a beginner DJ. However, the software didn't work properly on a number of laptops that I have tried
