Add Records to your VCI-100 Jog Wheels

This DIY mod wins several awards including: most useless mod, easiest to perform mod, and most instant gratification bang for your buck mod. Adding a pair of 7″ records to your vci-100 does not make too much sense as you loose functionality of the fine pitch faders, nearly 16 buttons and you must remove the input fader knobs. Then again, its fun to do and looks great. You can also fantasize what it might be like to actually have 7″ record midi platters which would be sick! Vestax briefly brought out a mock up of a single 7″ record midi controller with motorized platter and basic controls. It was a mechanical mock up that didn’t exactly wow the crowds at NAMM 2008 but I cant think of anyone that does not like 7″ records. So here are the basic steps required to add a few to your VCI-100.

First, remove the metal touch plates.

Now, center a 7″ record over the plastic jog wheels.

Re-affix the metal plates over the record.

enjoy your new toy!

    That vestax b-1 is the shxt. It looks light and like it would fit nice alongside a vci or twitch. Unearth that bad boy.

    I have found bland cd’s that look like small records at wal-mart they may be a more effective mod with the same concept!

    what about the same thing with CD's instead could that be adopted since 7" are to big.. maybe CD's are a better fit…

    still waiting for my ean golden edition vci 100

  • Ean, I sent you an email and a private message on the forum, did you read it? I was asking you for some advice for a marketing project im making at the uni regarding controllers.

  • Ean, oops

  • Ian,

    That's funky yo! haha I like it!

  • only the next controller has a better plattern resolution so scratchin etc. would make sence with a vinyl onto it… this is really only looking nice 😉

    P.S. Ean, that VCI's paint is looking pretty beat-up! I guess it sees plenty of use, eh?

    How do you get to the Vinyl button underneath the Jog if its on the wrong setting ? lol

    Cool mod ! 😛 Though i think ill stick to my standard jogs 😉
