Go to Menu->Options->MIDI
There you should see the VCI-400 listed as "Vestax VCI-400"
Click it and select vestax_vci400.xml
The 4 faders, PFL button, equalizer and trim control the output for each of the 4 decks.
The filter acts as a low-pass filter from center to left and a high-pass filter from center to right.
In Mode 1 Cue and Play buttons always act on deck A or deck B.
The 2 left-most buttons act as Cue and Play for deck C, the 2 right-most buttons act as Cue and Play for deck D.
The center 2 buttons on each side can be used for pitch-bend on deck C and D.
If you hold shift pressed, the cue and play buttons can be used to seek forward or backward through the song.
There are 4 modes that are selected by the small button beneath the 4 larger buttons.
In Loop Mode the eight buttons start/stop a loop of lengths from 1/8th beat to 16 beats.
In Cue Point Mode the eight buttons start playback from one of the eight first cue points.
In Sampler Mode the 4 top buttons start playing the samples loaded in the sampler.
The effect can be selected by using the upper of the 2 buttons next to each effect section. While holding this button pressed, use the pad to select the effect.
The effects possible are currently flanger and echo.
The 4th button activates/deactivates the flanger. The first knob controls the strength, the second knob the speed of the flanger.
The 3th knob controls the sound, making the flanger sound more extreme. The 3th button toggles the highpass to ensure that the flanger doesn't interfere too much with the bass.
The 4th button toggles the echo between fully on without input from the original track, or fully off. Because the track keeps playing, it will stay synchronized while playing with this button, so it can be used for cool effects.
The first knob controls the strength of the echo, the second knob controls the length of the echo.
The 3th knob controls the high-pass filter, the 3th button controls the low-pass filter.
The 4th knob also controls the length, but in very small steps so it can be used as an effect with very small echo lengths.
Scroll through the list with the browser knob. Clicking this knob will switch the active list between folders, files and current playlist.
To open a selected folder, press the Load button of any of the decks.
To load a selected song, press the Load button on the deck you want to load the song on.
