The VCI-100 has built-in jog wheel and comes with Traktor 3 LE 05/01/07
Vestax have just released a new professional USB MIDI controller compatible with both Window and Mac. They tell us that the VCI-100 is simple and stylish and packed with features such as a high resolution JOG wheel, hardware CF curve control and top quality faders and switches. Native instrument Inc.'s TRAKTOR 3 LE is bundled in, allowing users who don't have software to play and use it right away.
Hereâ€™s some of the details directly from the Vestax website: FEATURES
The VCI-100 is highly PROFESSIONAL with a JOG wheel built with sensor and control technology from our turntables. Also featured is a variable curve generator that controls the crossfader curve from the hardware with original faders. The VCI-100 is built with high quality mechanical parts and a PCB designed for accurate and stable operation. FUNCTIONS
90 parameters of various software are assignable to the VCI-100's control section via USB MIDI IN/OUT.
The JOG wheel is constructed with a high-resolution pulse sensor; touch sensor and acrylic platter mechanism. With this combination, operations such as pitch bending, scanning and scratching can be performed with speed and accuracy.
The resistance value of the fader movement is AD converted and sent to the software along with curve information created by the CPU inside the VCI-100. Therefore, you can adjust the crossfader curve to your preference whether or not the software you use has curve control.
The DATA SEND LED and JOG wheel SENSOR LED provides clear visual of the current status to assist in an authentic play mode in real time.
The power source is selectable from USB bus-power and the exclusive power adaptor. (For best performance and stable operation, please use the power adaptor if the computer's power capacity is low or if using a USB hub)
There are no issues if you don't have software to operate. TRAKTOR LE (Native Instrument Inc.) is bundled to the VCI-100 with exclusive control assignment files.
The VCI-100 provides simple plug & play working with Apple and Windows computers.
Compatible with all software that allows MIDI control assignment. Each software's samples of MIDI control assignment files will be available at www.vestax.com soon.
The metal body is almost the same size as a standard Laptop, thin but highly durable, compact and convenient for transportation.
