The American Audio VMS4.1 DJ Controller

The VMS4.1 is a the newest version of the 4-channel table top DJ controller from American Audio and it is their flagship controller. One feature that separates this controller from others is the built-in soundcard, which eliminates additional interfaces needed between the controller and computer.

Compared to its breakthrough predecessor, the VMS4.1 has a completely new internal hardware, four times more output, a larger power supply, brighter LEDs on knobs and buttons, stronger facer mounting, vastly improved sound quality and significantly upgraded mic sound, quality and output. It also has a new, more linear EQ design that works better with Traktor software as well as Virtual DJ.

American Audio has incorporated a built-in USB port onto this controller, this provides plug-n-play right out of the box and allows the VMS4 to be used with any MIDI audio software titles. This controller is equipped with two velocity touch sensitive jog wheels, a full function mouse pad, two 10-bit resolution pitch sliders, 62 assignable MIDI buttons and switches (50 with LED illuminations, 18 with dual blue/red LEDs), 4 assignable rotary encoders, 34 assignable rotary controllers, and 5 assignable linear fader controllers. All audio control faders, knobs, switches, and buttons have been smoothed to eliminate popping, wiper noise, and zipper noise. This versatile all in one DJ controller is perfect for beginner DJs and has all the features that will satisfy a professional DJ.

This thing is almost the best controller if it was as easy to use as they advertise then it would be perfect, the only thing wrong and that makes this thing hard to use is virtual DJ everything about the controller is good its a great mixer but if you hook it up to virtual dj you're going to start to have problems with it so its nothing wrong with the controller really its mostly virtual dj so like i said its almost the perfect controller in my opinion.
