Vestax VCI300 Description:

The VCI-300 from Vestax is the perfect digital DJing solution for anyone who needs a system with rock-solid stability, total portability, a professional build-quality, and tactile hands-on control. From its inception, the control surface of the VCI-300 was designed to be fully integrated with the included Serato ITCH software (Mac & PC compatible). The controls are logically arranged on the hardware to make complete sense with what's going on in the software. A high-quality 24-bit, 4 input 4 output USB audio interface is built into the VCI-300, so you will have all you need to DJ anywhere you go.

Vestax VCI300 Features:

Many computer DJ control surfaces have a plastic feel to them, and lack the robust quality of traditional equipment. This is not an issue with the VCI-300, with its sturdy metal enclosure and rubber reinforced corners. It's built tough and ready to travel. The controls have a professional feel to them, and have been thoughtfully arranged so your fingers will have the right amount of space to turn knobs, etc. The buttons and touch-sensitive jog wheels are illuminated, and all of the controls are situated to mimic the flow a traditional DJ mixer.

The nice thing about a completely integrated system is that it removes most of the variables that technically plague many other DJing systems. You don't have to worry if the club is going to have a compatible system, you don't have to do any major rewiring when you set-up in the DJ booth, and you don't have to worry about your DJ software unexpectedly losing communication with your DJ hardware at a critical moment. Having everything in one box means that you just connect your headphones and laptop, plug the main outputs of the VCI-300 into the house sound system and you're ready to play. It doesn't matter if you're playing in a large stadium or a small living room, this DJ system is comfortable anywhere. In the event of a complete computer failure (which is something every digital DJ needs to consider), the VCI-300 features a dedicated stereo input for connecting an iPod or CD player that will continue to pass audio to its outputs without a computer. With the VCI-300 you can be confident that the beat will never stop when you're at the decks.

Serato is among the most highly respected names in professional DJing software. Their brand is synonymous with stability. The proprietary nature of the Vestax hardware with the Serato ITCH software takes their dedication to stability and ease-of-use to an almost obsessive level. ITCH software cannot be purchased separately, it is only available bundled with certified ITCH hardware. Additionally, all future software updates (that sometimes include extended functionality) are free of charge. The hardware and software combination provide the user with a "one to one" instant mapping capability. This means that the controls are already mapped to the software right out of the box. This makes set-up time almost non-existent, which is not the case at all with most MIDI controllers. ITCH is compatible with iTunes, and if you already have Serato Scratch Live crates, loops, and cue points stored, ITCH will recognize and work with them. It also features automatic tempo matching, beat sync, BPM calculation, color waveforms, cue points, manual and automatic looping, input and mix recording capabilities.

Just because the controls come pre-mapped to the software doesn't mean that you can't tweak the VCI-300 to you liking. There are independent controls for the torque of each jog wheel so you can adjust them to suit your tastes. The crossfader and input faders feature curve adjustments to suit different mixing styles. The VCI-300 was designed to provide a top-notch DJing experience from start to finish.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
