    If anyone could send me a proper download of the presets it would be much appreciated.

    I just bought a kontrolx1 and vci 300 to find out i cant use the vci with traktor >.< ughh not cool. I tried using the mini translator/presets but nothing wants to work for me. I get the following error. Please let me know if its just a faulty download link or if im doing something wrong.

    1: Project file refused because it is not correctly signed.

    Hi all, any news about firmware upgrade?
    I’ve already mapped the xponent for traktor but i want to put my hands on a vci300.
    Are you sure that there is no key-combination during startup for set the controller in advanced mode????
    For example, when i want to use xponent with traktor i have to hold two buttons during the controller startup. If i don’t press them i won’t have midi-out signals.

  • Glen McArdle

    Hello Ean, I was wondering. Besides a VCI-300, I also own a Faderfox that a use in my setup in Traktor Pro to control de FX and deck C & D.

    I've recently purchased an Korg EMX1. I really like it. I would like it that I could ad this to my current setup apart from using it on its own. Is there any way that I can do this by using only the souncard of the VCI?

    To connect the faderfox and EMX to my laptop for the midi signals, I use USB to midi adapters. I've allready managed to send the midi clock from Traktor to the EMX, I've tryed to rout the output of the EMX to the input/thru on the back of the VCI and, in Traktor routing input 1-2 from the vestax to channel C in Traktor (is this teh same as deck C by the way?) Now when I hit play on the EMX the input meter shows a signal, but I'm not getting any sound. But when I flip the thru switch on the back of the VCI I do get sound. But the problem then is; I cab't get sound from the other channels and I get static and noises through the EMX when I hit buttons on the VCI.

    An other thing I have not yet managed is to get the EMX to play as soon as I hit a play button on the VCI. The kind of sync that does work with Ableton.

    You think you could provide me with some pointers on this one? I would immensly appreciate it.

    Kind regards.

    Got my VCI 300 a few weeks ago. Got the mini translator, but I found that I don’t really need it because I got ableton. You know if you use ableton and itch, it’s the perfect dj setup. I use my axiom 25 and my VCI and it is really fantastic. If you don’t scratch, I don’t see any point in using traktor when you can use ableton. The VCI is exactly what I needed for my sets!

    Do we have to understand that the Pitch sliders and Jog Wheel Surfaces doesn’t work without mini translator or doesn’t work at all with Traktor pro?
    I brought back my VCI 300 to the dealer today du to the problem “freeze(disable)” the serial N° was one of them.
    Someone know what’s they gone do? they fix it? change it?

    Thank you

  • http://www.eangolden.com Ean Golden

    We did some testing with the VCi-300 and confirmed that the following controls will NOT work with Traktor Pro WITHOUT mini translator:

    Pitch sliders
    Jog Wheel Surfaces

    this is the same as in Traktor 3, the vci-300 will show up without mini Translator but those 2 controls will NOT work but because they are high resolution midi.

    I am a bit confused here ..so does the VCI-300 work or not with Traktor Pro or with Mini Translator and all..seems nothing positive here about it working well..

  • sleaztek

    so how come u dont need mini traslator for pro???

    did anyone chack it out????

    r there any tks files for it or suporrt????

    if there is im geting it now…..

  • Martijn

    Does mini.translator only work when you start up the program or does it also do something on the background?

    In traktor pro i dont select mini.translator but the vci-300 as midi device for the in- and output..

    In traktor 3.4 i needed to adjust the midi settings of mini.translator and i needed to select mini.translator as input device.

    why is that? We didn't test it yet but I didn't see support for 14 bit midi in pro

    WAIT – I have it up and working with Traktor Pro. Cool – only thing now is I have to learn how to program the darn thing since it uses some sort of new file/modifiers and a .tks file no longer works.

    I guess it’s as good as a time as any to learn how to make this work…but the Beta says it is only good until 11/22/08…..

    It sounds like you did not install the virtual drivers on windows. When you install mini T it asks you to install virtual drivers and you need to install all of them. (takes a little while)

  • Marcos

    Hey Ean. I think evrything works fine now although I don´t know exactly which parameters of traktor goes with jog wheel and pictch faders, so it would be useful if u can tell me. Anyway, gotta wait for the .tks you are building, because I think it will be very nice.

    Is there a way of assigning the config in a way that looks like ITCH?:

    - SCRATCH mode off: Cd. SCRACTH mode on:Vynil. Pushing jog wheel or sliding it from the surrounding.

    - Using pitch shift buttons to change the +-6 scale.

    I think that system works quite nice in ITCH and it would be great for traktor.

    Thanks!

    Maybe I could beg for someone to make a VCI-100 to Torq patch. Someone with: the authoring version/ skills and knowledge/ VCI-100 /Torq care to step up? I love my VCI-100 W/ Traktor but I own Torq as well and would like the two to play together well.

    [quote]When you’re scratching using a rotary controller, the actual messages sent by the MIDI device are just the difference between the last position and the current one[/quote]
    I would just insert here that this is not the ONLY way a rotary controller works, just the ones you’re working with right now. Rotaries are perfectly capable of sending absolute, relative, or indeed BOTH types of data at once. In fact, I can’t think of a better way for a platter to have both accurate scratching and absolute positioning than to send both types of data at once (this is kind of how timecode works FYI).

    But sadly, right now the SOFTWARE is the weak point. Itch scratching will feel MUCH more accurate than Traktor’s right now because Itch was specifically designed to work with partner products like the 300. If everyone making MIDI controllers decided to make things proprietary by forcing the use of a specific software package (like most DVS products), then performance would be better, but at the expense of limiting what the user can do with their hardware. But there needs to be a couple things like Itch out there to prove to other software companies that the performance is possible, and the only thing keeping it from happening is the software.

    [quote comment=""]

    When you’re scratching using a rotary controller, the actual messages sent by the MIDI device are just the difference between the last position and the current one, biased by 64 (zero = 64, negative numbers are less than 64, positive numbers are greater than 64). The values sent when you move the platter are pretty much all small values: +1, +3, -7. Adding additional resolution to these values will not affect the feel of the platter as it’s not the values that matter, the perky feel comes from the *frequency* at which these updates are sent.[/quote]

    Anonymous is right and brings up a very good point. Dont expect the VCi-300 jog wheel to be amazingly better than the VCI-100 when using it with software other than Itch. The reason Itch works so well is because they are not using relative data but gobs of absolute data. we have taken that absolute info and converted it into relative. Th amount of relative data is more than the VCI-100 because its being sent more often but the difference is not as great as you might imagine. Fatlimey might be able to expand on this more than I.

    [quote comment="14368"]I still disapprove degrading resolution to MIDI.[/quote]

    I think there’s a lot of misunderstanding about the difference between high resolution 14-bit and normal 7-bit MIDI controller values.

    When you’re scratching using a rotary controller, the actual messages sent by the MIDI device are just the difference between the last position and the current one, biased by 64 (zero = 64, negative numbers are less than 64, positive numbers are greater than 64). The values sent when you move the platter are pretty much all small values: +1, +3, -7. Adding additional resolution to these values will not affect the feel of the platter as it’s not the values that matter, the perky feel comes from the *frequency* at which these updates are sent. A 14-bit NRPN message takes two MIDI messages to send (high and low, 6 bytes) whereas an single ordinary CC message only takes 3 bytes. Clearly, the low res messages can be sent faster.

    In the case of the pitch slider, more resolution is a fantastic upgrade, as you have more direct control over the pitch of the record – there are more thousands more positions you can set the pitch slider than just the low res 127 values.

    So, be careful what you ask for. I can imagine the designers at Vestax scratching their heads about why anyone would want slow NRPN messages off the scratch plate but, hey, Marketing wants it so we give it to them. MIDI-2 will give us both higher res and faster updates, but that’s a way off.

    The post would not be complete without a disapproval from Dj Tos, our resident devils advocate :)

    we agree, its not an ideal fix but until dj programs build in support for these types of controllers there is no other solution.

    Nice one, I would like to see you make a VCI300 firmware that could possibly make the 300 have "layers" so giving it extra control for programs like Traktor. I hope that Itch will expand a little more rather than a simple hip hop style dj program.
