Vestax for the People
Handling this thing is a dream: lightweight and compact enough rest it in my lap, DJ casually for friends, pass it around and ever Handling this thing is a dream: lightweight and compact enough rest it in my lap, DJ casually for friends, pass it around and everyone can basically figure it out. It really opens the doors to make DJing casual, fun, and ubiquitous. Getting it to sound good requires skill at selecting tunes and mixing them - same as DJing ever was. It's not built like pro-level gear which is designed to withstand heavy use, but it's still really nice for what it does - not simply a kid's toy as some pros suggest.
Djay & Spin are designed for Mac: refined to the point of being simple, elegant, beautiful, integrated with iTunes, and really works well - it doesn't have every feature in the book (and maybe misses some that pros may find important) - but it's straightforward, great to handle and use, and it does the job it claims to do very well. …

Its a child's toy. Your better off spending an extra $50 and get the DDJ-WeGO from Pioneer Dj. It comes with Virtual DJ LE costomized for the controler, and can even be used with the djay app. It also comes with actual cue buttons instead of manualy having to press them on your computer.... So ya spend that extra $50 bucks. …

It does what it's supposed to do
Okay first of all, if you can't tell by LOOKING at this unit at the Apple store or on eBay or where ever you plan on purchasing it Okay first of all, if you can't tell by LOOKING at this unit at the Apple store or on eBay or where ever you plan on purchasing it, that' it's NOT FOR SERIOUS DJ's & it's more for the home DJ who just wants to unwind & mix his/her own stuff then you're not very smart or you're just looking to get disappointed.
But I got a kick out one review who stated, "There are no waveforms and everything is mixed by listening to the beats and manually beatmaching by ear."
Ummmmm you mean like A REAL DJ, kind of like learning how to DJ off real vinyl, turn turntables & a mic??? I couldn't help but laugh at that review.
It's like someone saying, "Instead of buttons & controller & a 50 inch plasma you have to actually go outside pick up the basketball get your hands dirty, get sweaty & use your muscles to throw the ball in the hoop"!! …

To find it, simply google, asio4all and it should lead you to the website. Download it, install, and then run VDJ and go to configuration and you should see where you need to change the driver to ASIO4ALL.
Hope that helps! …

Can you use it in Europe on a other computer too???

the power adapters that are sold by apple (and most other companies) are listed a Hi Jessie
the power adapters that are sold by apple (and most other companies) are listed as 120-240 volt devices, 50-60 cycle AC (or there about) so they can be used in EU, USA, UK, ASIA, etc. It is very rare these days to find chargers that aren't multivoltage input. All of them will have the input written on them (al be it maybe in VERRRRY small letters...)
The main only difference is on the plug into the electric end adapter you have (for me in USA, it is always the two parallel flat prongs) and the adapter that you'll need for each country. To clarify, by this I mean the two round prong adapter for EU, the three kind of square prongs for UK, the two parallel flat prongs for USA etc
as long as you have these adapters (either thru apple which sells a kit that has the adapters that REPLACE your existing one on their charger OR thru some third party vender that you then plug your original apapter into.
the apple one has the advantage of replacing your current one from another country and no need to think about it. the third party adapters have the advantage of being able to be used for other device chargers such as your phone charger or camera battery charger for instance.
One thing I do if I need to plug a number of items in is not only carry a third party travel adapter to my own country devices, BUT I also carry a standard three prong power tap from my home country to be able to plug in three home country devices into one adapter.
these three prong taps (available at hardware stores etc) are also useful in my home country for instance at an airport when I need to charge my phone, AND all the available outlets are being used by other travelers, nobody usually minds if you unplug them for a moment, put in the three outlet tap, replug them in and have two extra outlets for me
By the way, I understand that the apple chargers for mac are ONLY sold by apple, due to the patented mag safe connection so that is why I choose that product. …
