Decksaver for Vestax VCI-400 (video)

I've been a big fan of the Decksaver DJ equipment covers ever since they were first released. They do an excellent job of protecting your gear from dust, dirt, grime, debris, smoke, and lots of other things that can do damage to your beloved DJ gear. They always fit just right and the fit and finish is spot-on. After upgrading my Vestax VCI-400's crossfader last week, I decided to also give it a bit of added protection. The Decksaver for the VCI-400 was recently released and we got one sent to us directly from Mixware.net who is the official US distributors of the Decksaver brand. Check out our full HD-Video feature of the new Decksaver for the VCI-400 after the jump.

[Video] Serato DJ with Vestax VCI-380

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 is extremely versatile as it can work with both the full Serato DJ software and Traktor Pro 2 with great results. I've decided to keep the VCI-400 for my personal controller of choice and since then we've upgraded the crossfader (on our DIY Video) and now we're ready to customize the looks. With the help of our friends over at Styleflip.com we were able to perfectly match the black/white pinstripe design on my DVS setup and replicate it on the VCI-400.
