I bought my VMS2 in the fall of 2011, knowing that MegaSeg (my DJ software of choice) would soon upgrade to support the features of this mixer. It's been an absolutely fantastic purchase. I mostly DJ at weddings, and having a midi mixer WITH a mic input has made my setup much less cumbersome.

I can Cue either or both decks, and seamlessly create loops and beat match with ease. If you've though about a midi controller but have resisted, this is a great choice.

It's built like a tank, metal housing, solid controls, and fits well in a Gator bag for the VMS series. Can be powered with the supplied DC power source, but I've been running it off the USB bus without any problems.

The VMS comes with an "LE" version of VirtualDJ. If you don't currently have DJ software, or if you're on a windows platform, check it out. I've found nothing more complete and stable that MegaSeg. Give them a try as well.

The midi controller market has become more and more competitive. Especially the mid-entry level controller.

Good -

All of the knobs except the cross-fader feel very solid.

The most durable of any Controller in this price range I've played with.

Comes with 2 outputs so you don't have to use a external mixer.

Comes with all the software you need to start mixing out of the box.

Could be improved

The Pitch only goes +/- 12%

Overall If your looking for a reliable 2 deck controller that doesn't feel like it was made in China this is perfect for you. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles some of the newest controllers have, but it has everything you need.

While this is a decent tool for someone starting out, there are better options in this price range. The good things about this unit are that it is very solidly built. There are multiple options to tweak your songs with this controller and the number of outputs it has will have you covered for multiple venues and different speaker setups. The mic out is very easy to set and having some of the main controls on the front is a big help, but the front of the unit is not backlit so in a darker places you better know your knobs well.

This is where the good things end as the setup and software bundled with this controller is rather glitchy with Win 7, 8.1 and 10 PCs Often times the audio output hardware on your machine will need to be disabled and reset from the device manager just to have the controller feed it though to the Virtual DJ software. The same issue happens in Flow and Mixx the two alternative solutions I used with this controller, The Virtual DJ software requires manual tweaking to the skins to get it to show up properly in 1080p. The jog wheels have a good grip on them but they are not motorized and have a loose feel to them.

It is hard to recommend this item with my not so good experience with this controller, but as a learning tool and a first kit it serves its purpose, just don't expect amazing things from it.

I bought this mixer for mobile dj work and I am very happy with the product. It is very powerful and well structured. It is expensive but its worth the money because it is all metal and has heavy rubber corners to protect it. It is very responsive and has very clear sound with a good mic input. The faders are good and the platters are well made too. I would reccomend this product it's worth the extra money. Go for it.

I've had it for a little over a year now and let me start off saying its wonderful starting controller!! Easy to use and very effective! Never has failed me once! Very solid foundation and great solid jog wheels! Beat matching is easy to do, cueing and loops are easy as well! However the pitch fader only goes to 12+/- but if you buy Virtual DJ 8, you can make it whatever you would like.

It does come with Virtual DJ 7 limited edition, I recently upgraded to Virtual DJ 8. Virtual DJ 7 limited edition was okay, I just like having the preferences and being able to select outputs. (Ex. Built in output instead of VMS2 output)

Internal sound card is great also. Just go straight out of the XLR or RCA outputs (XLR is recommended) and you will be fine! I use the XLR outputs and it has more than enough output.

Overall: This controller is a great midi controller to for starting out with, it does limit you with control on the number of effects you can do but if you're starting out it is great!

I think this is a great well built product. The output on it is loud and clear. Its mic input is quite useful. I have a few complaints, it doesn't lend itself to any FX unlike the VMS4.

I think this is a great product, just would have liked to see an IC3 power port on back rather than using their power brick....but otherwise, the touch platters work well, the buttons have a great noticable click to them, and the latency is very low. Only gripe I have is it's quite hard to get to and apply FX via this controller for Virtual DJ...

THIS IS A STEAL FOR THE PRICE. THE UNIT IS BUILT STURDY AND IT IS VERY EASY TO USE THE VIRTUAL DJ PROGRAM. THE JOG WHEELS ARE GREAT FOR SCRATCHING AND THE UNIT HAS A MULTIPLE OF OUTPUTS. THIS OUTPERFORMS UNITS THAT COST TWICE AS MUCH AND WHICH ARE NOT BUIILT AS WELL. I WAS REALLY IMPRESSED WITH THE CONSTRUCTION. THE BUTTONS FEEL GOOD TO THE TOUCH. I AM ABOUT TO PURCHASE A FLIGHT CASE TO PROTECT IT. I HAVE BEEN DJING FOR 30 YEARS AND THIS BY FAR IS ONE PIECE OF EQUIPTMENT THAT HAS GOTTEN ME EXCITED AGAIN ABOUT DJING!!!....I HAVE RESAERCHED AND DID A LOT OF HANDS ON AT VARIOUS STORES BEFORE I MADE THIS PURCHASE....DON'T LET THE PRICE FOOL YOU ...IT IS WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT.
