Amazing scratch control that integrates with your software!

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.

The metal body is almost the same size as a standard Laptop, thin but highly durable, compact and convenient for transportation. Dimensions (excluding knob height): 14.2"W x 1.4"H x 9.9"D (360 x 35 x 252mm)

Comments about Vestax VCI-100 Tabletop DJ MIDI Controller:

I was a little skeptical at first as to the durbaility of this product, i.e. the build quality with the knobs and faders etc...being that I never had touched the device before I purchased it. Once opened and set down your first impression is, wow this is sturdy. It's made of aluminum for the main frame and the jog wheels and has a professional weight to it along with rubber feet so it's stable. The knobs and faders are plastic but still have some good tension. My favorite parts of the vci 100 are the plug and play use, I didn't have to install any drivers to use with traktor Pro and I love the led lights. The jogwheel lights up blue and then when you touch it they turn red. The jog wheels have amazing response time and could even be used for scratching. The surface is like the iPod's interface in that it responds to touch, so if you had gloves for whatever reason on they would not respond. My only complaint about the device is that the because their are so many buttons and traktor pro is newer than the VCI 100, no maps have been released, so mapping this thing takes a long time, another thing is that the black knobds in the top right corner and the two in between the eq's are so small that they are difficult to use on the fly. Overall I would recoomend this device, I was between the torq xponent and am happy I got the vci because it looks the part much more.
