VCI-300 MIDI Controller
High Resolution Control
The VCI-300 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.
The built-in audio interface carries a Audio Codec IC with crystal-clear sound, 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-300 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.

Top Customer Reviews
1. Headphone Output. The headphone amp is not sufficient for mixing at loud parties, clubs, etc. Serato introduced a software update that helped improve the gain on the headphone volume, but at the end of the day the hardware is lacking in this area. Also, there is no split cue to put the monitor in one ear and the program in the other.
2. Microphone Input. The soundcard cannot handle live MCing via the mic input. Depending on the how you set the buffer, the mic is either on an almost unbearable delay or the sound quality fizzes out and sounds like you are talking through a blown speaker. Because of this, I always have to bring additional hardware to route the output of the VCI-300 through another mixer in order to get a reasonable quality mix between music and microphone(s). Very annoying.
I won't be as technical as other reviews. The Vestax VCI-300 makes DJing so enjoyable. From spending days combing through crates to find a few records to simply d/l that track and throwing it in a mix instantly is pure joy. The sound quality is great, the quality of the components is top notch, and the ease of use is fantastic. All my friends and I can't put this unit away, it's so much fun. I highly recommend to anyone and everyone.
I only wish there was a backpack specially suited for carrying this unit and my laptop around.
