    Default VCI-100 Arcade

    Hey, I'm thinkin about ordering an arcade mod of the VCI-100, and have a few questions. Does it come with a built in sound card? Can I customise the knobs and sliders upon ordering or do i order the $39 pack after ordering? Thanks in advance

    No sound card is included, I use a Audio 2 DJ with mine, I would recommend you do so too. You can pick 1 of the 4 knob options (UV green, UV yellow, white, black). You may have to email them to request the knob change, they also do them in batches so make sure it's not going to take 2 months to get it through an email or quick phone call to their office. You also have to buy an upgrade from the included Traktor LE to Traktor Scratch.

    It may seem like a high price tag and more you have to buy on top of it, but it was the best purchase I ever made, so I would recommend you go through it if your solid on becoming/being a DJ.

    Thanks for replying so quickly. That's really good then, definite order! Seems like a high price tag outside of DJ'ing I suppose, but this seems like a hell of a piece of kit, definitely gonna get one ordered up

    Yea, it's worth it if you enjoy DJing (not a good piece for beginners). I played with the S4 and really would still pick my beloved arcade buttons over the S4.

    Quick note, if your a fader slammer like myself get the black rubberized knobs/faders, the others are plastic and break and fall off quickly... I'll upload a pic of mine in a second for ideas... I personally have a rubberized fader on my crossfader because it keeps coming off with plastic and the UV yellow everywhere else.

    That looks like a beast of a set up lol. I didn't even notice that, but yeh I woulda thought Traktor Pro was the way to go. Hopefully I'll have this ordered by the end of the week when my pay comes in, cheers mate!

    Tell me if you thinking about spending that amount of money why dont you just invest in getting the S4?

    The arcade is $849 without a sound card, and the S4 is $899. Its still a sick controller dont get me wrong, just my 2cents.

    Kontrol S4 > VCI arcade.

    Umm, I actually don't know lol, I guess I just got taken in by all the arcade mods and the fact that there're more videos on the site. I might look into it now, do you have an S4?
