Vestax Unveils The VCI-100 DJ MIDI Controller
Vestax has quietly unveiled the VCI-100, a new USB DJ controller. The VCI-100 has two special jog wheels that contain sensor and control technology utilized in their turntables. The VCI-100 also features a variable curve generator that controls the crossfader curve from the hardware with the track faders.
â€¢ 90 parameters of various software are assignable to the VCI-100’s control section via USB MIDI IN/OUT.
â€¢ 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.
â€¢ The resistance value of the fader movement is AD converted and sent to the software along with curve information created by the CPU inside the VCI-100. Therefore, you can adjust the crossfader curve to your preference whether or not the software you use has curve control.
â€¢ 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.
â€¢ The power source is selectable from USB bus-power and the exclusive power adaptor. (For best performance and stable operation, please use the power adaptor if the computer’s power capacity is low or if using a USB hub)
â€¢ 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.
â€¢ The VCI-100 provides simple plug & play working with Apple and Windows computers.
â€¢ Compatible with all software that allows MIDI control assignment. Each software’s samples of MIDI control assignment files will be available at www.vestax.com soon.
â€¢ The metal body is almost the same size as a standard Laptop, thin but highly durable, compact and convenient for transportation.
â€¢ Comes bundled with Native Instruments’ TRAKTOR 3 LE
