I suspect this uses an optical pickup. You need to open the unit and look at the sensor. If it is an optical pickup, then use the canned air pressure to clean the area of dust.

If it happens to be a mechanical switch, then the mechanical encoder has to be replaced.

The 4 black buttons in a column at the top left hand corner of the vci-100. The second one down from the top isn't sending data, and the button is kind of squiggly. I know this may just be normal wear...


The solution is likely replacement of the button switch portion. Be careful of applying too much pressure... often they have plastic hinges for the buttons and they can be broken by applying too much pressure in an attempt to get them to work.

It is an either/or thing. I would recommend you get a headphone amplifier or get external speakers and drive them externally. Internal speakers are relatively poor quality anyway

Vestax vcm 100 driver traktor pro


hi, you need to go here:
http://help.vestax.co.jp/en/detail.php?id=80&id_page_url=56&cate=0

and download the .tks file for your version of Traktor. Suggest you save it to the Traktor program directory.

Then within Traktor in the controller settings section, load the .tks file, save and you're good to go. Obviously you can tweak the configuration as much as you like once it's loaded. Suggest you always keep a backup of the original.

Jog wheel is blocked and hard to spin


Hey, the vci 100 out of the box has the problem of sticky jog wheels, Im not sure how long you have had the interface, but mine took a bit of use to start spinning freely. These jog wheels are definately the weekest link and degrade rapidly, the case is easy to remove there are about 8 screws including one one front and rear edge, you will notice the grafite lubricant used on the jog wheel mechanisim, a fine grade grafite would not go astray when maintaining this moving part

How to use Audioline Pro DJ Multimedia Mixer M Dex 3.0


I have been recently using this Cd Dj deck at parties and have some general knowledge of the product, it has alot of potential. Is there anything in particular that you need help with? Or is it the general concept of using them.
Currently, i don't think there are that many websites that explain how to use the Cd decks, however i can provide you with some basic information. Most of the information here could be worked out by trial & error.
- Pitch control on the right of each cd deck can be slid up ( slows it down %) and slid down (speeding the track up %) i think the pitch control has a range of either +-10% or +-16%.

- Cue button, has the potential for Cue'ing or setting up the cd to instantly jump to the "cue'd" point with the press of this CUE button. This is done by either pressing play/pause button and rotating the jog wheel to a point of time in the track which automatically sets the cue point OR holding down the >> or << search button to find a spot within the track at a greater speed.

-Vinyl mode. Pressing this button will set the deck to the "vinyl mode" to simulate scratching or even backspins. pressing this button again will change the mode back.

- the Crossfader (or 'X' fader) button will select the left cd track if the x fader is all the way to the left and the right track if the x fader is all the way to right. having the X fader in the middle will play both tracks together.

- Low, Mid, High. These nobs on the middle section of the deck change the individual track by which it is corresponds. (Left side = left cd track, and vica versa) Low refers to the Bass of a track which can be essential for mixing two tracks and elminating excess bass noise. Mid refers to the drumming and even synth of a track, and changing this can result in some cool sounding effects. High refers to the 'high' frequencies of the track playing, such as snares, hi hats and possibly vocals. All these controls are crucial to understand in order to mix 2 songs together successfully. It's good to get a chance to muck around with these cointrols. The middle of each control resets the setting to normal or default.

- Channel fader. the two controls that slide up & down on both sides of the mixer on the deck. This is also referred to the volume setting. Useful for mixing seamlessly one track into another.

- Gain. This control at the top of the mixer refers to the volume level or 'gain' of the cd track that it corresponds to.

- Jog wheel. Serves 3 purposes. firstly it can be used whilst a song is playing to temporarily speed up or slow down the track to match with the song on the opposite side. secondly, whilst holding down the 'search' button, operates as a control to quickly find a spot in a song. and lastly when selecting "vinyl" mode, can simulate the reaction of a vinyl turntable. The scatch function, and backspin effect.

- The pitch button, is just another control to speed up or slow down a song temporarily whilst holding down the '+' or '-' button.

- Reverse button, for a certain amount of time will play the song on the left or right in reverse.

- Time. this button is essential to change the time selection on the cd deck, to either "Time elapsed", "Time remaining" and "total time remaining on the cd".

- the "tap" button, allows the user to physically "tap" the button in time with the song's beat, which calculates the Beats per Minute (Bpm) of that song. which is essential to work out the bpm of 1 track to mix the speed with that of the opposite deck.

- Cd/usb/sd, changes the mode of system reading. from CD to USB or SD card.

I really hope this general guide to using the Audioline ProDJ MDex3 has helped!
Peace. Marc.
