Vestax VFX-1 for Serato ITCHPosted on 6 October, 2009
Vestax officially lifted the lid on their new VFX-1 during the BPM show in the UK last week.
The Vestax VFX-1 has a powerful range of effects that are hosted within the supplied version of Serato ITCH DJ software. This is the very first product that will activate Serato DJ FX, simply by connecting the VFX-1 via USB.
Once connected the VFX-1 gives an ITCH DJ precise control over 12 different Serato DJ FX with 3 control knobs. The various DJ FX can be assigned to Deck A, Deck B, the Master Output and even the Aux or Mic input.
The range of DJ FX that can be selected have been specifically sculptured with live performance DJs in mind. Tempo based DJ FX like the Delay and modulation effects can be clocked from the prebuilt BPM of the track or you can manually tap the tempo to achieve different effect timing.
It's very simple to select your desired effect with the rotary Effect dial. The Beats knob then lets you quickly select the desired time division. A large silver Depth knob is assigned to give precise control over parameter 1 of each effect.
A clever Mod knob lets you quickly access parameter 2. Pushing down the Mod knob gives advanced access to parameter 3.
The Vestax VFX-1 is styled to match the popular Vestax VCI-300 but will also work with other ITCH DJ controllers.
Vestax VFX-1 will be available in Japan from the 16th of October. International shipments will commence at the end of October 2009.
