DJ Unkut meets Vestax VCI-400 – turntrollerism? [Video and Interview]

What does a controller company need to get turntablists on their side of the fence?  They need a DMC champ to show us how it’s done.  Legendary turntablist DJ Unkut put his skills to the test using a Vestax VCI-400 and Pad One controller; all of which was mapped to Traktor.

In less than 2 minutes he created a dubstep set that including everything from one-shot samplers, fader scratches, looped effects, and X/Y pad control.  When DJs say things like “controllerists lack creativity or skill”, they’ve only said that because they haven’t seen it done correctly.
