Vestax, one of my personal favorite DJ companies, has recently announced that they will be bringing out a brand new version of the very popular VCI-300 Digital DJ controller. Introducing the new Vestax VCI-380 Digital DJ controller which is basically a VCI-300 with eight Vestax PAD-ONE pads integrated atop each deck that allows DJ's to trigger cue points, samples, loops, slice up beats, and shoot off Pad FX together. This new Serato Itch controller can also work as a standalone mixer. Check out the video and press release for more details.
The Vestax VCI-380 has been out on the market for a little over a year now, but its still one of my favorite controllers to use with Serato. During our HD-Video review, we loved the build quality, tight jog wheels, and excellent fader feel along with the a set of input and output options that are available to the users. The VCI-380 now gets a free software upgrade from Serato Itch to the new and improved Serato DJ and Martin from the Serato team gives us a quick demo video of the new look and features. Check out the performance video and my Vestax VCI-380 review after the jump.
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 inside.
