Vestax is reducing the U.S. MAP price of the VCI-400 to $899 USD effective immediately. Here's their description of it:
The VCI-400 is the hardware solution for DJs who have been seeking an instrument that perfectly adapts to their style of performance. Shifting focus from integrity with bundled DJ software to any DJ software has made the VCI- 400 the most versatile and intuitive DJ controller in its league. Along with its excellent potential for customizing control assignments, the VCI-400 and its ergonomic 4-channel lay out provides perfect control for standard DJ software operation 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. The highly responsive multi-mode transport section triggers layers of controls instantly, which is perfect for finger drummers and controllerists. All buttons are backlit with high-intensity LEDs, and along with the built-in LED Meter input faders, the VCI-400 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.
The VCI-400 is bundled with Serato DJ Intro and Virutal DJ LE 4 Decks for immediate DJ experience out of the box. A blank overlay for DJs who seek to customize MIDI assigns and create their own layout is also included. MIDI maps for a variety of software including TRAKTOR PRO 2, MixVibes, TORQ 2, Deckadance and more will be available from the Vestax website.
