Vestax CF-X2 Crossfader Installed in VCI-400/VCI-380

Posted 3 years ago by

Ever since DJ controllers first started appearing on the market, the more advanced scratch DJ's were always looking for a way to make the crossfader on these units as good or close to the quality of the crossfader found on their beloved Battle Scratch Mixers. Vestax has heard their cries and has come up with an excellent solution to this dilemma. They decided to make the crossfaders on the VCI line of controllers user-friendly-upgradable to the same exact same crossfader found on their flagship scratch mixer, the PMC-05ProIV.

Vestax CF-X2 Crossfader Installation for VCI-Series Controllers


The fader is called the Vestax CF-X2 and they can be ordered through any online authorized reseller of Vestax DJ equipment. The price is going to be around $120 in the US, but the improvement is well worth the cost. The Vestax CF-X2 scratch crossfader can be fitted into the Vestax VCI-300MK2, the Vestax VCI-380, the Vestax VCI-400, and of course the Vestax PMC-05ProIV mixer. Check out my DIY installation video below to see how it all fits together...

Vestax CF-X2 Replacement Crossfader for the Vestax VCI-300MK2, Vestax VCI-380, Vestax VCI-400 & Vestax PMC-05ProIV

NON CONTACT MULTI LINEAR SENSOR
The accuracy of a crossfader relies on how the movement of the fader is detected. Common digital crossfaders use 4 magnetic sensors to detect the fader movement. The CF-X2 has 6 high precision sensors, 3 on each side of the fader shafts, which detects and calculates the movement of the magnet built in to the fader with a highly advanced algorithm.

UPGRADE YOUR VCI-300MKII
The CF-X2 is the default crossfader for the PMC-05ProIV mixers but can also be installed to VCI-300MKII midi controllers. If you’re into serious scratching with the VCI-300MKII, the CF-X2 is the choice to make.

SMOOTH MOVEMENT
The main fader unit is designed with a widely set fulcrum point. This enables the fader to respond accurately to the touch of the users fingers and glide smoothly along the shafts.

MINIMUM FRICTION
The shaft holes of the main fader unit are shaped in an octagram to reduce friction between the fader unit and the shaft. This design also increases the life of the CF-X2 compared to non-digital faders and makes it difficult for dust and dirt to affect the movement.

The shaft on the over hand, is polished in nanolevels providing an ultra smooth movement.

SUPREME STABILITY
In order to transmit accurate movement and maintain that level at all times, the fader needs to be tightly secured. The metal casing of the CF-X2 stabilizes the movement of the main fader unit and at the same time secures it from external interference. 

ANTI BOUNCE PLATE (Included)
Everyone has a preference when it comes to how the fader clicks. As default the CF-X2 has a metal “bounce”. By option users can attaché the Anti Bounce Plate, designed to absorb the force of the fader when it hits the end of the shaft, and stops it precisely where you want it.

CAUTION:
Please note that if you are installing the CF-X2 to a VCI-300mkII, the CF-X2 firmware is required to optimize curve control and cut lag control features.
The firmware update is note required when installing the CF-X2 to a PMC-05ProIV or PMC-05ProIV BLK mixer.

THE CF-X2 UPGRADE KIT
Screw type A x4
Screw type B x2
Bracket (BR300) x1
Connector cable x1

INSTALLATION
The CF-X2 is easy to install to both the VCI-300MKII and PMC-05ProIV mixers.
Please read the include manual for detail instructions.
