Ever since the MP3 was introduced to the music market, the share of people who utilize digital sound data has increased exponentially, with software for remixing digital sound data following suit. However, there weren't any interfaces that could live up to the professional DJs and producers real time mixing. At the same time, Vestax received many requests to design one. After consideration, we decided not to load a sound card in order to prevent any latency that may be caused from processing massive sound data on the same signal line. The VESTAX VCI-300 is highly PROFESSIONAL with a JOG wheel built with sensor and control technology from Vestax's turntables.
Vestax is pleased to announce the new VCI-300 DJ MIDI controller. USB based and featuring two jog wheels with sensor and control technology from Vestax's turntables, the VCI-300 provides professional DJs and Producers with the "feel" of hardware mixing in the software realm.
Vestax has utilized its vest experience as the best DJ hardware manufacturer in the DJ market to design the only control surface that truly serves the Professional DJ/Producer's real time mixing needs. The VCI-300 provides features that blur the line between hardware mixing and software control. The chassis is roughly the size of a standard Laptop, thin but highly durable, compact, and convenient for transportation.
The key to any professional DJ set up is the quality and feel of the "platters." The JOG wheel controls on the VCI-300 are constructed with high resolution pulse sensors, touch sensors, and acrylic platter mechanisms. With this combination, operations such as pitch bending, scanning and scratching can be performed with speed and accuracy. 66 software parameters are assignable to the VCI-300's control section via USB MIDI IN/OUT.
The VCI-300 has excellent compatibility with the new SERATO DJ software and comes with a built-in audio interface with standard 4in/4out and headphone connection, larger & lighter JOG wheels, JOG torque adjustment and other new features!
Vestax and Serato have joined forces!
Sharing their technology and compiled feedback from Pro DJ's and users from around the world, they have created a dedicated DJ USB MIDI / Audio system and software offering absolute control. The VCI-300 is a dedicated USB MIDI controller for the included Serato DJ software. It also comes with a built in audio interface with standard 4in/4out and headphone connection, which means all you need for DJing is the VCI-300, a laptop and a set of headphones.
