New Stand-Alone Mixer Function for the VCI-400
Vestax Corporation announces the VCI-400, a professional 4-channel DJ MIDI controller with versatile control functions and sound quality, is now capable of operating as a stand-alone mixer by upgrading to the latest v2.0 firmware.
The v2.0 firmware enhances the features of the VCI-400, enabling users to pre-mix external inputs from CD players and DVS interfaces with trim, three-band EQ, and also apply hi pass and lo pass filters with the aluminum filter knobs. The three-band EQ of the mixer function shares the same bandwidth, crossover, and Q factor with the legendary PMC-55 mixer. The filters were designed to enable precise sweeps, and the low frequency response was designed to comply with sound systems in large venues the company says.
The VCI-400 remains fully functional as a MIDI controller even when mixing external devices. This means users can mix external inputs with a variety of DJ software controlled with the VCI-400. For example, with Traktor Pro, users can mix a total of six decks (two Traktor Pro decks, two Traktor Pro sampler decks, and two CD players) while still being able to trigger loops, hot cues, and control effects with the VCI-400.
This upgrade has become possible, according to the company, thanks to the advanced audio design, which gives the VCI-400 its flexibility to improve hardware performance and audio function with new firmware.
The v2.0 upgrade is completely free and available at the URL below left for all VCI-400 users. To download the firmware and watch the update tutorial, see the URL below right.
