Overview

The Vestax VCI-100 professional MIDI controller has two jog wheels built with sensor and control technology straight from Vestax's turntables. Also featured is a variable curve generator that controls the crossfader curve from the hardware with original faders. The VCI-100 is built with high-quality mechanical parts and state-of-the-art PCB technology guaranteeing accurate and stable operation.

90 parameters of various software are assignable to the VCI-100's control section via USB transmitted MIDI signals.

The JOG wheel is constructed with a high-resolution pulse sensor, touch sensor and acrylic platter mechanism. With this combination, operations such as pitch bending, scanning and scratching can be performed with speed and accuracy.

Every crossfader motion of the VCI-100 is digitally converted and sent to the software. Curve settings are generated with the built-in CPU, which allows you to adjust the crossfader curve to your preference whether or not the software you use has curve control.

The DATA SEND LED and JOG wheel SENSOR LED provides clear visual of the current status to assist in an authentic play mode in real time.

Operates both with USB bus-power and an exclusive power adapter. (For best performance and stable operation, please use the power adapter if the computer's power capacity is low or if using a USB hub)

There are no issues if you don't have software to operate. TRAKTOR LE (Native Instrument Inc.) is bundled to the VCI-100 with exclusive control assignment files.

The VCI-100 provides simple plug & play working with Apple and Windows operating system computers.

Compatible with all software that allows MIDI control assignment. Samples of MIDI control assignment files for each software will be available at www.vestax.com.

its okay

By scoobysnax

from NedVeR, CO

The quality is top notch. The black knobs are way too small as is the power button in the back. The buttons that light up are too hard and so are the knobs. Also, you have to take it apart and buy a 27 dollar piece to upgrade it through a serial port. Good product, bad support. The price is pretty high too. Recommended only if you have the money to spare.

GREAT SYSTEM!

By Eddie

from Cincinnati, OH

I just bought this system and when I was buying I was weary whether or not to buy it. But I got the VCI-100 and it is OFF THE CHAINS! The Mixer is great! Its got great effects on it to distort the music and TRAKTOR 3 LE is a great software. It recognizes the Vestax instantly when you install the Software. The only disadvantage is Traktor does not recognize some of my purchased Itunes. Other than that I would say what are you waiting for, buy the Vestax VCI-100

Amazing Controller

By Jennerator

from Boston

The VCI-100 is Awesome! I got it for its compact size and professional look. I take it everywhere and I get a lot of attention using it. It�ۡ���s really durable and can survive a good pounding. It is a little heavy but compared to even one CD deck it�ۡ���s a feather (my entire setup minus speakers weighs about 20lbs). The sync button is nice because it frees up my time to drop and mix on the spot without chasing beats and the one button looping give me excellent control over my song transitions. There was some audio skipping and stuttering at first but once I configured my computer for the maximum audio performance it disappeared. To cue and get great performance with the DJ application sound interface is needed. I�ۡ���ve used vinyl and CDs neither compare to the flexibility and convenience of a good digital setup. The VCI-100 helped me take my creativity and performance to the next level!

Good product, technical difficulties

By Alex M

from Poconos, Pennsylvania

This product worked like a dream when I first got it. However, after 4 hours of normal use, one of the wheels "broke" and wouldn't spin right. So, I'm thinking of getting another one, but I'm worried this will happen again. . . Could use some more features.
