Vestax unveiled a couple of new products recently, the Micro 5 two channel mixer and the Pad One, a small drum pad controller with a X/Y pad. There’s not a lot we can tell you about the new offerings, since the Japanese concern has one of the worst website’s in the business, but these items will reportedly be available before the holidays in Europe.
