Worked but problems with computer (Typhoon)

By JimboSpins, 25/03/2013
The Vestax Typhoon is a DJ controller that has a built in soundcard. It has somewhat of a different style of look with all of the knobs and sliders being red. Most people feel like that wouldn’t bet that big of an issue but to me it just didn’t look great. But the look didn’t affect the performance at all; this controller has all of the needed functions to run a set easily.
Setting this controller up with any software was not difficult at all, though manual does not really cover setting it up in other software applications. It does come with Virtual DJ “limited edition” software. This software will work with audio and video mixing. I have used it in Serato before without any issues or concerns.
There are 4 DJ effects on this unit and it would have been nice to have a few more. You can quickly access and add your filters with this unit by just pushing one button and then using your job wheel to change the parameters of your filter. Also, beat matching with this unit was very easy. Even if you are a “scratching” DJ you can easily scratch with this interface and it will be very clean.
I really enjoyed throwing in effects to the mixes with this interface; it was very quick and easy to do. The audio output to the headphone jack was very good and loud making it easy to monitor the next track before playing it. Everything with this unit was simple to operate and worked well. The only issue I ran into was using it on a Windows computer. Sometimes it would have an unexpected crash, and an unexpected crash is never good! So I was too afraid to try to use this live in too many sets. After having this unit and using it for about 6 weeks, I experienced about 5 crashes. That was 5 crashed too many for me! I am not sure if it was a Windows compatibility problem or if it was a software issue with Virtual DJ.

Cross fader still feels like new (PMC-05ProIV)

By JimboSpins, 25/03/2013
The Vestax PMC-05 Pro IV is a 2 channel mixer that supports MIDI. This was my “road warrior” mixer for a while because it was built very tough. I didn’t have any case for it when I was using it a lot and it got banged around many times but it always kept working. Nothing ever happen to it aside from a few scratched on the exterior of it that didn’t affect the performance of it at all.

UTILIZATION

Setting up this mixer is very simple, you can use it on a Mac as long as you are running a newer version of OS X and on a PC I know you need to have at least VISTA to get best performance out of it, but it will work with Windows XP but it seemed a little glitchy to me in XP.

SOUNDS

This mixer does have on board EQ (3band) but no effects. There really weren’t many features that made me love this mixer but it worked great and never failed to deliver. You pay for quality with a mixer like this. All of the knobs, buttons, and sliders are very well made and after heavy use they will not wear out at all!

OVERALL OPINION

I have battled with this mixer about 5 times and never have I been disappointed with using it. I have really put a lot of use to the cross fader and normally on mixer my cross fader will really wear out after a lot of battles. But this cross fader is still holding up strong. The mixer is now my main battle mixer, I do not battle all of time but when I do I take my PM5 – 05 and let it handle my aggressive mixing. The audio output is also very good with this mixer. I would not buy this again if I wasn’t a battling DJ mainly because of the price and lack of features.
