newbee linux with vci 400

Postby zig » Tue Feb 04, 2020 9:33 am

hello all

I'm Guillaume "william" from France, little dj since 2001 with vinyl (D&B,minimal,dark tekno,acid, hardcore...) starting with digital since 2015

I am new to using debian linux.
I really start with the "terminal" really difficult for me :oops:

I would like to operate my vestax vci-400 with mixxx and I hope to find help here.

The software is correctly installed but already I cannot find the firmware for my controller?

I only find for pc and mac? https://support.serato.com/hc/en-us/articles/203593924-Vestax-Hardware-Drivers-and-Firmware
Is this normal, should I install the one for MAC?

Thank you in advance for your help, I will have lots of questions :p

Hello Guillaume,
may I suggest you read the WIKI page and follow the instruction inside?
https://www.mixxx.org/wiki/doku.php/vestax_vci-400

The MIXXX WIKI is really helpful so possibly you also like to read some other pages.

I hope you get it solved. Have fun!

thanks!!

I had already flown over this page without paying the necessary attention ...

so if I understand correctly I must install the firmware under windows and it will work under linux?

But when I am under linux, the windows is not active how is it possible?

I will try, I hope :roll:

... you only flash the device using windows.
Then the new firmware is in your device and you do not need windows anymore but just run the device under Linux properly.
Edit: are you sure that you need the new firmware? Have you tried to run your controller in Linux already?

hello and thanks to help me


I am a bit useless in computer! :oops:

So after all this time the controller finally works !!

But many functions do not work ... For example the headphones or the effects or even the loops, I should look at the manual I know but between work and family I can have time for translation and reading a good big manual ....

If someone wants to give me the solution I take otherwise will just take more time :D

thanks a lot
