    [quote comment=""]ok here’s a question. i see in ean’s videos that he (you!) are using the vci with a copy of traktor scratch pro, not just traktor pro.. is there any functional benefit or difference when using this version with a vci 100?? just curious[/quote]
    nope – no functional difference except scratch pro lets you use vinyl control :)

    Where's the Master volume control? Of course there are many different ways to do that: sound card, mouse or track pad, external connection, another mapping… but I must say that I mess it in this fantastic overlay.[/quote]

    With limited space- we left only the most essential performance items on the layout. Since master is something set once a night and rarely changed- that seemed like it could be left off.

    At least i've intalled the overlay and the jog grips without any trouble, except for an excess of glue in one of them, but i've found a little, for me, strange thing:

    now it's time to practice to load this controllerism software into the brain, I need a new midi mapping in my fingers… 8-)

    hey ean,

    i've just finished putting the wrap on my vci-100b. it look so nice and professional. but removing the screws was a real pain in the ass…i had to get help from a friend and we had to destroy the plates in order to get the screws off. but it looks awesome and finally i can use your config more efficiently.

    thanks so much for your work…i'm looking forward to the next tsi's. right now they're good…but the fx are really hard to include in the layout. i'm working on a solution…as soon as i manage to pull something off i will let you know.

    keep up the great work.

    greets from germany,

    marko

    Hey Ean,
    Thats great! Might you have an idea of when you will be releasing the Tks/Tsi file for the VCI-100SE with Traktor Pro? Also, I think you said this already, but will all the lights be working with the SE and Traktor Pro?
    Thanks again

    [quote comment=""]Hi Ean,

    Will you consider necessary to publish a new upgrade of the firmware to fit better the Traktor Pro features and new effects? Or is it completely unnecessary?

    And … could you provide us more info about when the fill in the blanks style will be available?

    Thanks a lot and keep up the good work![/quote]

    Your welcome Carlos, we will not be publishing a new firmware file for Traktor Pro. 1.3 will work quite well and if anything we may build our template on 1.3 and use mini translator for any needed “special” functions. This will ensure future compatibility.

    Sorry I know this has proberly been asked before but can i still purchase a VCI-100 SE?

    Many thanks.

  • Ean Golden

    [quote comment=""][quote comment=""]Okay. So what I've gathered is forget about the vci-300 and go for the original, silver, vci-100. Then download the tks file to upgrade to 1.3 firmware and get the black SE overlays. And a pre-sonus firebox soundcard sounds like the best bet. Does this sound right? Anyone?[/quote]

    Yeah, that pretty much hits the nail on the head :)[/quote]

    Well, I try and let people decide for themselves but if you plan on using traktor then that is going to be a much better bang for your buck.

    Wow I ordered on Monday and it is here on Wednesday many thanks to yall for creating this, and shipping it so fast. Yall rock my socks.

  • Alex Sanchez

    Wow, I'm really excited about the custom overlay wich you can label yourself (as you pointed out in your video). How will that work exactly? And when can we order those?

    [quote comment=""]The overlays look pretty neat! A pity they are sold out already. Any news on the mini.Translator to emulate the v1.3 firmware?[/quote]

    We will have more overlays in stock next week and its possible the VCi-100SE mini.Translator patch may also get released as a beta next week too.

    [quote comment=""]I have a question for the board and Ean…

    I am wondering if I should start by learning the SE layout or if I should keep the VCI-100 as is and learn Traktor LE

    [/quote]

    here is my very non-objective opinion. :)

    The SE (while being very powerful) is the most straight forward and easy way to get access to traktors functions. Therefore, i think it would be easiest to start with that and then as you grow and want to learn more- then deeper functions of the SE will be there waiting for you.

  • Regero

    I have a question for the board and Ean…

    Being that I am a complete newbie and have no idea what I am doing with the VCI-100 or Traktor at this point. When I do get the VCI-100, and the SE overlays, I am wondering if I should start by learning the SE layout or if I should keep the VCI-100 as is and learn Traktor LE OR if I should keep the VCI-100 as is and use it with Traktor 3.2 (which was given to me as a gift)

    So yeah, I see those three choices as my options…I really would like to learn the best way and truly master this craft one day, so any and all advice is welcome.

    Thanks again everyone…

    [quote comment="14631"]Looking at the first image, It seems that there are 2 missing labels in deck copy section: "A>C" and "B>C"…

    [/quote]

    Hey guys, no that was not an oversight but intentional. That area was a little too crowded on the original SE so to clean things up a bit I re-did the labeling there. IMO, a or b copy to C was fairly intuitive and didn't need to be labeled. I left a to B copy ( the much more common control) so the function listing would be there and to remind you of the copy function.

    Sorry if thats a disappointment but the goal was to make the section easier to read and less confusing by removing the less important labeling.

    I just spoke with our manufacturer about that and he actually recommends just putting any new overlays over the old ones.

    There is product that i sell called Rapid Remover that works really well for getting that left over sticky residue off (just fyi, i guess).

    and, that Traktor Pro stuff is great news!!

    [quote comment="14613"]Yes very nicely done. But with pro coming out won't there be better possibilities with effects and such. Will the SE layout get superseded because of Pro's new features and therefor the overlay will essentially become sort of useless in time??[/quote]

    The layout will remain useful for a while yet, there really isn't any new features in Traktor Pro that will make the EG edition redundant. All the Traktor Pro update has really done has thrown in some new effects and made it a little bit easier to do stuff that what was done with EG edition – there really is no ground breaking functionality that will "break" the EG edtion layout.
