Overview

The Vestax VCM-600 USB MIDI controller allows you to assign and control 160 parameters of your DJ software, and comes bundled with Ableton Live 7 Vestax Edition software. With intuitive audio recording and MIDI sequencing, more than 20 built-in effects, and 2 software instruments, you're ready to perform with it right out the box. The DJ controller also comes with the same high-quality input faders and pitch faders as the VCI-100 and PMC-580 models to give it advanced operability and includes Vestax-quality input fader/crossfader curve control. Besides the Ableton Live software, it will also work with other MIDI-compliant DAW software with high-resolution MIDI signals sent via USB. All of this is housed in a lightweight, high-durability aluminum body for easy portability.

Great Controller

By Technology

Comments about Vestax VCM-600 USB MIDI DJ Controller:

Amazing possibilities with this controller and Ableton. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the cueing is not really up to par with a professional DJ mixer, and this is really a software issue. There needs to be a straightforward way to cue multiple channels in the software and mix this with the master out so that you can practice your mix before bringing it out. It only allows you to cue one channel and the master out can not also be sent to headphones with the cue. This could be done by sending both to a return I believe, but a dj mixer should allow you to cue multiple channels and mix them in the headphones in a straightforward way.

95 percent perfect

Comments about Vestax VCM-600 USB MIDI DJ Controller:

The controls feel great, and while I had some initial concerns regarding the proximity of the knobs to each other, it has not proved problematic. My one, giant, infuriating problem with this controller is that it *does not* come with any interface software. This oversight may be due to an attempt by Vestax to cater more heavily to DJs who are relatively new to the digital world and might prefer a "plug and play" system, at the cost of customizability. However, this means that all the pretty, backlit buttons are stuck in "toggle" mode, so trying to get any kind of "instant kill" effects is virtually impossible. I had to write an entire driver for it on my own, using MaxMSP, which I used to modify the midi data for Ableton as well as to update the button-lights on the VCM-600. If you either prefer a setup without momentary buttons, or can write your own drivers (or use a 3rd party midi editor like Bome's Midi Translator), this is an amazing controller, complete with solid (and adjustable!) faders, grippy rubber knobs, light-up buttons (for screen-free feedback), and solid construction. I expect to be using the VCM-600 both for live performances and in the studio for a long, long time.
