Vestax VCI-400DJ “Officially” Announced

Vestax VCI-400

The Vestax VCI-400 Digital DJ controller can now be purchased with the full Serato DJ software already bundled and ready to go. Vestax has now officially announced the Vestax VCI-400DJ which, not only comes with Serato DJ, but also dawns a new color scheme and skin which have commands and features that correspond to the features found in the new software. I liked the VCI-400 so much that I kept my review unit and even upgraded the crossfader to the scratch-happy CF-X2. The perfect Serato DJ integration is yet another reason for people to take a good look at the VCI-400 if they are in the market for a new DJ controller. Check out the full press release and my review and DIY video of the VCI-400 below...

Vestax announces VCI-400DJ

Tokyo, Japan – April 10th 2013 – Vestax Corporation announces VCI-400DJ,
a professional 4-channel DJ MIDI controller and 2-channel mixer with a
versatile control surface, giving DJs full control over Serato DJ. The VCI-
400DJ will be displayed at Musikmesse 2013 in Hall 5.1 at Booth C90 from
April 10th in Frankfurt, Germany.

VCI-400DJ and its ergonomic 4-channel control surface provides perfect
control over standard DJ features such as cueing, pitch control, looping, FX
control, track browsing/loading, triggering samples and scratching.

The symmetrical intuitive control surface consists of iconic Vestax features
such as the high-resolution JOG wheels with torque & sensitivity control. The
option to adjust each parameter enables DJs to tailor the functionality of the
JOG wheels to the most suitable for their style. The large aluminum Filter
knobs are also a distinctive Vestax feature that has been inherited from
previous Vestax quality hardware. All buttons are backlit with high-intensity
LEDs, and along with the built-in LED Meter input faders, the VCI-400DJ
provides excellent visual support for DJs in any environment.

The integrated audio interface uses a studio-grade asynchronous USB
streaming system, to provide low-latency, bit-perfect audio at 24-bit / 48 kHz
resolution. This newly designed audio system combines a dual-core digital
processor with carefully selected analogue components, to deliver clear and
powerful sound. Users can also pre mix external inputs such from CD players
and DVS interfaces with Trim, 3 band EQ and also apply Hi pass and Lo pass
filters with the aluminum filter knobs. The 3 band EQ of the mixer function
shares the same bandwidth, crossover and Q factor with the legendary PMC-
55 mixer. The Filters were designed to enable precise sweeps, and the low
frequency response was designed to comply with sound systems in large
venues.

The VCI-400DJ is bundled with Serato DJ for immediate DJ experience out of
the box. Serato DJ delivers all the features and performance to meet the
demands of DJs at the top of their game and sets the new standard for
controller DJs.
