In 2008, the Vestax 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 Vestax VCI-300MKII comes with usability improvements based on feedback from Vestax VCI-300 customers.
High Resolution Control
The Vestax 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).
A 12 level LED L/R indicator is set in the center of the top panel to monitor sound levels.
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.
- Volume Boost (Gain Boost): Higher output gain level and headphone volume level when supplying
power with the optional power adaptor. (not included)
- Optional Vestax Digital Fader (not included)
- The Vestax VCI-300MKII Cross fader can be upgraded to Vestax's new magnetic sensor system digital fader CF-X2.
