Modding the Vestax VCI-100

November 1st, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Here is the latest project I just did for one of my DJ friends.  He uses Native Instruments Traktor Pro and controls it with the Vestax VCI-100.  A while back he asked me to mod his controller with arcade buttons, and I final got around to doing it for him.  Here are some pictures of the progression of the mod.  This is not a difficult modification, the toughest part was cutting the holes fir the buttons which I did with a hand drill.

    It was some random bit I got at the hardware store. If I find a model # I’ll let you know.
