The Vestax VCI-400 is now capable of operating as a stand-alone mixer by upgrading to the latest v2.0 firmware. This stand-alone mixer function enables you to use your VCI-400 along with CD players or a DVS interface, with or without having a computer connected.
The mixer can also be used in combination with a variety of DJ software. For example, with Traktor Pro you can mix a total of 6 decks. (2 Traktor Pro decks, 2 Traktor Pro sampler decks, and 2 CD players). The 3 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.
How to upgrade to v2.0 firmware:
