Vestax Controller One is no ordinary turntable like the others, it is a musical instrument for DJs! The experience in the development of this product of the world's top DJs, D-Styles and Ricci Rucker was evaluated by the Japanese Vestax in the development of Controller One. Thanks to the concept of this hybrid turntable, you can use the turntable as a musical instrument for the first time in history. Two rows of 8 octave MIDI keys in combination with a dual pedal controller act as a musical instrument and MIDI controller. If you play the keyboard, you will immediately understand how to handle this product. The principle is well illustrated by a graphical sketch of functions (see photo gallery below). You can play it as if you were changing the keys on the keyboard wit your hand. view full description »

The extremely powerful 24-pole synchronous AC motor Direct Drive with Quartz system and torque (up to 4.7 kg / cm) reaches a constant speed in 0.5 sec. after pressing the Start button. The motor speed is sensed and constantly monitored by a digital servo controlled by a 32 bit CPU processor. Thanks to this technological innovation, the combination of a DC motor with a digital servo and the modification of the entire turntable plate casting, the Japanese Vestax optimized the ratio between the weight of the turntable and its inertia. This design has made playing from & nbsp; Controller One even more enjoyable and accurate. The turntable has a nominal speed selection LED indication plus a seven-segment three-digit alphanumeric display showing the rated speed to tenths.

Controller One is equipped with a linear Anti Skipping Tone-arm System (A.S.T.S.) arm with adjustable extra pressure on the transfer tip for the best possible sound and minimize stress on the transfer tip by physical centrifugal and centrifugal forces acting on the tip sensing the groove of the record. A.S.T.S. the linear arm ensures high sound quality and a stable recording process from a record. This entire original A.S.T.S. is made of high quality aluminum alloy and was designed by experienced developers especially for Vestax. The A.S.T.S. is popular worldwide, which testifies to its quality, and Vestax is, of course, protected by US patents. The extra DSP (Dynamic Stylus Pressure) pressure on the tip of up to 5 grams with the possibility of continuous regulation of this arm ensures that even during extreme turntablism, the contact of the tip and the groove of the gramophone record is 100% guaranteed.

The Controller One hybrid turntable has two rows of 8 octave MIDI keys, eight LED alphanumeric displays to display information about selected tones, two joysticks to instantly correct the change in speed (Pitch Bend). The JOG DIAL dial operates as a pitch control in PITCH MODE, acts as an encoder in NOTE mode, and allows you to change the selected note by a semitone down ( b ) or up (#). Controller One allows you to store the set pitch / note values ​​in a memory bank. Controller One can be connected to an external device via a standard 5-pin MIDI connector, but also allows custom MIDI mapping. & Nbsp; Controller One is a unique turntable - the Controller One musical instrument. The product is produced in two color shades; the chassis is made of one piece & nbsp; of noble mahogany with a surface finish of either lacquered black "piano black" (BLK) or lacquered natural mahogany (MHG). It comes with an extensive publication full of tips and tricks on how to use all the possibilities that the device offers. This product is B-Stock / refurbished.

    1. Re: still for sale? (Vestax ADMIN, 20 Nov 2022 18:19:44) Reply

      yes, but only up to the published limited quantity!

  8. Interested (Cronam, 28 Apr 2024 11:00:27) Reply | Show replies

    Hey! When would the C1 be shipped after purchase? Very interested but would like to know the condition on the delivery to Europe. Will it be secured? Can I buy the hardcase with it and get it shipped in it, to be sure it does not break during transit?

    1. Re: Interested (Vestax ADMIN, 3 May 2024 14:59:38) Reply

      Hello, Please wait until the availability is at 1 pc. Transportation is safe, because It will be transported in hardcase, which is part of the delivery. But it is a standard commonly used HardCase. No premium Vestax HC RED (which one can you see in the photo; It is only on order like expandable accessories).

          Sorry, about this product is great demand, so we will not announce a date in advance. We cannot satisfy all customers who would like to buy them. Those who pre-ordered it earlier will have a chance to get it as well.
