Vestax has surprised us at the NAMM Show 2013 by sneaking out the Vestax VCI-400DJ, a limited edition run of the Vestax VCI-400 that comes with Serato DJ software in the box.

As Vestax’s other Serato controllers, the VCI-300 and the VCI-380, are currently only for Serato ITCH, that makes the VCI-400DJ Vestax’s first DJ controller for the new Serato DJ software.

Apart from the new colour and the Serato branding, the controller itself is exactly the same as the the VCI-400, meaning it shares all the same features. That means you can use it with any software as well as Serato DJ, and with a firmware upgrade it can be used as a full four-channel standalone mixer.

There’s no price yet, but release is expected “within six weeks”.

Are you surprised by this? Would you buy a VCI-400 to use with Serato DJ? Is this a good move by Vestax? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
