    Default VCI-100 or Novation Twitch?!

    i have the opportunity to get a novation twitch for $300 or i can get a vci-100 for $230 (mint and silver with 1.4 firmware) but ill still have to get an overlay $30 and the arcade button mod $50

    so essentially they are pretty much the same price!

    i have read either or and i hear complaints about both.

    the VCI is the tried tru and tested piece of hardware but its coming to the end of its days.

    now the twitch is fresh but i hear some complaints about the audio volume being low.... but i have a mixer for my turntables so thats not a problem.

    what do you guys think?

    vci-100 arcade or novation twitch?

    Twitch. The VCI is fantastic, but twitch comes with ITCH and a built in sound card.

    read his signature

    consider the choice of program too. the twitch can be mapped to traktor afaik, but the cool features are in itch..

    ya i know his sig has both the twitch and vci

    also also 300 is a decent price for a novation twitch right?

    Yeh, still do though I'm looking to sell the VCI. All the controls on the twitch are great, though the DJTT mapping for the VCI makes it very good competition.

    I use it with ITCH at the moment. There is ENORMOUS potential for an excellent Traktor mapping over and above what Novation have provided, but I haven't had time to work on one and none have yet appeared online. The twitch is overall a more advanced controller.
