    Default DJ tech hybrid 202? Vms4?

    Hi guys, I come to you because I am new to this scene and you guys are not and then obviously know shit tons more than I do.

    So here is the thing. I am looking into purchasing a DJ controller/Midi controller. I don't want to even bother with the "beginner" models because I think that would just be a massive waste of money in the long run. I have been doing quite a bit of research and I have my eye on two models.

    The AA VMS4. Looking around the forums here it looks like this is really gonna be the shit.

    (for those who have not seen it.)

    The other one comes from DJ-tech. I know that the company does not not have the best reputation, but this really does not look too shabby at all. The Hybrid 202.

    Those Kontrol Ones look pretty nice, and I have only heard good things about them.

    Sorry if you guys have already read a billion other new peoples pleas for help. But you will really help me decide.

    Thanks a bunch.

    Tits Mcgee.

    I believe the hybrid 202 is $699? and the vms4 is apparently going to be priced around $499 I have seen...If I were you I would do something like get the vms4 and a midi fighter, or one, or even two lpd8's...That way you get the 4 channel eq and faders, plus the midi mouse pad and touch strips leave so much room for mapping fun. Good luck with making your decision

    I like the VMS4 but I would wait for full reviews of it. Although it can do a lot, I am not sure about the quality of the hardware. Have you not considered the VCI 100 or Numark VS/NS7?

    not too impressed with how the 202 looks.

    what software do you plan to use - Traktor I take it? I would try to jump on something that has 4 channels, just makes it easier to control. Even if you don't play 4 tracks at the same time you can always use one to drop samples. If I were you I would hold off before getting a product as soon as its released. I think a bunch of guys had been waiting on the DX to come out and now have had some issues as the initial bugs are being fixed.

    Whats your budget? Honestly the VCI-100 with the amount of support it gets from this site is tough to beat. I just started using NI X1's and since they are fairly new, there are no mappings to use, or folks to turn to for tips. That goes along way.

    Im going to be really patient about the VMS4. DJ tech tools are going to endorse some sort of 4 channel midi controller eventually. And everyone knows that there will be some crazy sick mappings and tips that will go with it. So I am going to wait for a full review and maybe see how Ean and the crew feels about it.

    Alright, well I think I am going to go for the VMS4, but I will wait until it comes out and gets reviewed. I just want something so badly!! They better stop pushing the release date back.

    ad a +1 for dj tech gears quality, its very good, for features I would recommend the hybrid 303 setup with 2 kontrol 1's and the DJM 303 mixer, its got a better set of features over the 202.
