Just a quick heads up for anyone who may be considering purchasing the new Vestax VCI-380. This unit does NOT have traditional looping functions. I repeat, it does NOT have traditional looping functions. Instead, when you go to simply turn on a stored loop the track is forced to automatically JUMP to where the loop is as if it was a hot cue. This surprising behavior is inconsistent with the way operating stored loops has always been with SSL or ITCH and there is NO option for the user to select how the stored loops behave. I only bring this to your attention because this info was not disclosed when I just purchased my new VCI-380 so it now sits in box useless to me and I don't want any other fellow DJs to get blindsided by this unexpected news if traditional looping is critical to the way you perform.
