Vestax vci-100 or the new typhoon?6th Jul 2010, 05:53 #1
the vci 300 is too much money and im considering my options. ive heard that the vci 100 is better but im not really sure on all the similarites and differences. i dont want to waste my money. and im wondering if i should go with one of them or save up for a lil while and get the vci 300? the only problem with it is that you have to buy the effects, and theres only 12 of them. what are your thought? plllleeasssseee get back to me. thanks, avat_R

The VCI-100 is a better choice than the Typhoon in my eyes. If you got either one you would need to buy a separate DJ sound card. The VCI-300 has one built in. I would save up for the 300. It is designed to run only on ITCH but im pretty sure there are some tools to get around that. You don't need the effects, but they are a nice addition. There is also the new Numark MixTrack coming out, im not sure how good it will be. http://www.numark.com/snamm2010 The Numark MixDeck can also be a controller but it also takes CDs.

okay. i was looking at soundcards and i am wondering if i can record with the native instruments audio 2 dj. i want to get the audio 4 dj, but its a bit pricey. i just want good sound quality, i want to be able to hear the track in my headphones before the audience,i want decent portability, and the ability to record my mixes. thanks, avat_R

Any DJ soundcard should work. I think you can record straight from the computer internally since the sound it coming from itself.

The Typhoon actually DOES have a built in soundcard. It's a good entry level controller.
There's a review of the Typhoon, Spin plus two other budget controllers here:

The VCI-300 has just been launched as a MKII, so the MKI (which is fine) will be available cheaper if you scout around. It is excellent, but you're right you need to pay extra for the FX - however, buy the VFX-1 hardware unit to go with your VCI-300 and you'll get all the FX at once.
