NAMM 2010 - American Audio VMS4


image

American Audio introduced the VMS Midi Control, which has 2 jog wheels and 4 channels. Supposedly it also has a pretty seamless integration with Traktor. Also, Im surprised to see you can upgrade the fader to an Innofader. We will have all the details for you when we get our grimy hands on the unit later this year. In the meantime, here are the details.
