TOP OF THE LEAGUE

In 2008, the VCI-300+ITCH was the beginning for Vestax and Serato to create a new DJ console of the next generation.
The goal was clear. To design a light weight and compact digital DJ instrument with the touch of analog control.
Preserving the concept of the VCI-300+ITCH, the VCI-300MKII comes with usability improvements based on feedback from VCI-300 customers.
Vestax has considered every comment that has been received, and have put them all in act. Simply to give DJs what they want.
  

Vestax VCI-300 + serato ITCH

  • HIGH RESOLUTION CONTROL
    The VCI-300MKII can control more than 90 parameters and functions of the included Serato software with high resolution MIDI signals sent via USB. The pulse resolution of the JOG wheel and pitch control fader is 4 times higher than the VCI-100 and provides precise control of each function. The pitch control fader also shares the same high quality fader parts of the input fader for advanced operability.
     
  • SUPERB AUDIO CHARACTERISTIC
    The built-in audio interface carries a Audio Codec IC with superb audio characteristic, generated by a delta-sigma modulation 24 bit stereo D/A-A/D converter. Audio connection includes 1 stereo input, 1 MIC input and 2 stereo output (Master L/R, Monitor L/R).
     
  • LEVEL INDICATION
    A 12 level LED L/R indicator is set in the center of the top panel to monitor sound levels.
     
  • FILE CONTROL
    Audio files in the software library can be easily selected and controlled with the CRATES / FILES / BROWSE key and the cursor switch inherited from the VCM-100.
     
  • EMERGENCY THRU SWITCH
    The Emergency Thru Switch located on the rear panel is a countermeasure where you can use the VCI-300MKII with the provided ITCH software or without the computer connected if you simply want to play music from your external CD or MP3 player. The ITCH software reads music from your iTunes library or the Serato library you use for Scratch LIVE, making it the perfect device for recreational or professional DJ's.
     
  • ADJUSTABLE JOG WHEEL TORQUE
    The torque of each JOG wheel can be adjusted to prevent them from moving from low frequency feedback and altering the pitch when using the VCI-300 in such places like clubs.
     
  • FADER CURVE CONTROL
    The fader curve of each fader can be adjusted to the preferred characteristics for long mixes, scratching and any other style.
