    Default Opinions on VESTAX VMC-004XLu mixer?

    I'm looking to buy a mixer and I saw this one in a Greek shop. Is it any good? Has anyone ever used it? Any opinions are more than welcome. Thanks a lot

    I recently purchased the vmc-002xlu (the 2 channel version) and I think its great. The build quality is great and the eq's sound nice. The faders are pretty smooth, I'm not very experienced scratching so I couldn't give a good evaluation of the crossfader but it feels alright to me. Great entry level mixer i'd say.

    cheers

    would you say it's a better mixer than a beringher ddm4000 or used pioneer djm600? I'm looking for a 4 channel mixer, i don't need any effects and they're all in my price range 200 to 300.

    I've not used the ddm4000 but it seems to get good reviews. For the money I think the feature set is hard to beat (The placement of the headphone out is ridiculous though). Personally I dont like pioneer mixers so I wouldn't recommend them ever.

    It's a good mixer. Crossfader isn't worth shit though. The curve sucks for scratching and you will wear it out quick. Honestly crappy as can be. I have a brand new crossfader, and 20 days later it sucks. It's embarassing. But the level meters per channel are great, and the eq is nice as well. Mine is getting an Innofader and i'll be thrilled. Only other complaint is lack of XLR master outputs (I have the PMC-004, and the XLu is supposed to fix this problem) and no XLR mic input. It's easy enough to work around though. The mixer does have a nice sweet sound to it though.
