The Vestax VCI-400 can now also be used as a standalone mixer for your external decks AND still feed your MIDI controller needs with digital decks in hybrid mode all at the same time!

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.

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

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.
