Billed as "the ultimate performance tool" for today's working DJs.
The VMS4 is an extremely versatile 4-channel MIDI controller that offers 4 selectable MIDILOGT (MIDI or analog) channels. This allows it to be used with a computer for digital DJ-ing or as a regular mixer without a computer. In the event of a computer crash, the VMS4 will kick into analog mode for use with CD players and turntables, providing digital DJs with a built-in "backup" system. Compatible with both PC and Mac operating systems, the VMS4 comes bundled with Virtual DJ LE software, and will also work with other major brands of DJ software with "MIDI learn" function.
The VMS4 features a built-in mousepad that allows DJs to make all of their selections right from the top of the unit. Other features include 2 jog wheels, illuminated rubber knobs for ease of use in dark environments, MIDI assignable touch strips, and 2 microphone channels with gain/treble/ mid and bass controls. All audio controls are smoothed to eliminate popping, wiper noise and zipper noise. The VMS4 also offers the option of being used with an Innofader replacement crossfader (sold separately).
Among the VMS4's other MIDI features are: 50 LED illuminated buttons (including 18 with dual blue/red LEDs), 34 assignable rotary controllers, 5 assignable linear fader controllers, 4 assignable rotary encoders, long-life MIDI-assignable touch strips, two 10-bit resolution pitch sliders, 62 assignable MIDI buttons and switches, dual MIDI controls on all buttons and switches, and dual 2000 point resolution touch-sensitive turntable search controllers.
Audio features include: 24-bit 48 kHz of analog audio; 16-bit 44.1 kHz USB audio; 10-bit resolution on all analog fader controls; and selectable USB modes: 4 in 4 out mode for running software effects on phono/line analog channels, or 2 in 8 out mode for running 4 software channels and master recording.
