Everyone has been talking about the VMS4 since its debut, so why have a road show?
“Because we love Miami – just kidding, we want to take the VMS4 out and expose it to as many people as possible, because we believe it’s a revolutionary product that is going to really make a difference in the professional lives of mobile entertainers. It’s certainly the most important product in our company’s history, and one of the most important in the recent history of our industry.”
What makes the VMS4 so special?
“The fact that it fuses MIDI software and analog audio control in one unit makes it a very versatile piece of gear that gives performers the best of both worlds. The signature “Velocity” touch sensitive jog wheels, full function mouse pad, and MIDI assignable touch strips create the right feel for performers, which is really a critical element of delivering a great show. Then there are the super quality channel and crossfaders – and all of the features that you’d expect to find in a top of the line professional mixer, like balanced XLR outputs, gain, treble, mid and bass for each Midilog channel. I could go on and on, but the main point is that the VMS4 really lets performers move seamlessly between the digital and analog world. Plus, the fact that it’s open source means that they can use whatever software they’re comfortable with.”
Well then tell us about the show Miami tour?
“We were at two great hosts, Space Music on Tuesday and Extreme Pro Sound on Wednesday. We timed the tour to coincide with the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Every performer who sees the VMS4 in action is just blown away by its performance. So for me personally, it’s really very gratifying to be associated with such a winning product.”
You also had a great performer demo-ing the unit, can you tell us about him?
“Aside from being a great guy, DJ Etronik is an amazing performer. He’s a world-class competition winning master, and the first DJ to represent the United States in the DMC World Finals in all three categories. His remixing and beat juggling performances are nothing short of magnificent. All in all, between the VMS4 and DJ Etronik, the people who came out to see us in Miami enjoyed an entertaining and educational experience. Now we look forward to repeating this success in Germany at Pro Light + Sound.”
