gontie's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good but lack of space"

Vestax PMC-280
For specifications, go to the website.


Everything is very clear from the beginning, we quickly understand how it works. Parcontre, it severely lacks room for those who mix with EQ and not with the faders.


The big highlight of this machine, the EQ is still as good feature.


It is a very good restaurant, nothing to say. Faders and EQ rattled at first use but after nothing. The only default for me is the lack of space, I have over eight years using the VMC 002 and move to 280 PMC small things because it is impossible to suddenly killer bass and mids, it really lacks a lot of space. Why I sold it.

She is also very beautiful and I must admit that for the price, the connection is really An impressive.

vinzomatoze's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Vestax PMC-280
Well equipped with table rack connector (2 RCA and 1 XLR).
4 channels, an effects section ... In short, a complete and well-designed table for multiple uses.


Nothing complicated (it is a table mix) and the effects section is also very easy to use. Grip immediate and very intuitive.


The console is well balanced and powerful. It provides quality sound and équalos are accurate and comfortable handling. For a 4-track workspace is quite well designed and optimized integration of the effects box.

Otherwise the table introduced a light breeze when using effects (nothing too bad, it's quiet and relatively easy to understand given the gouache table).


I use it now for about 6 months and I mixed on many models of many different brands.

I wanted to keep a table in a reasonable format with 3 or 4 tracks in order to get another plate, machine or something else in case ...

I'm quite happy with my choice for power, accuracy and ease of use. This table is a well designed and thought very responsive which gives full satisfaction.

What I like least: the curve of the cross fader can be but it is really to be fussy. Steep in hip-hop fashion (normal), I found it a bit too exponential mode mix for my taste (at first) but it is at this level of detail here and there quite quickly.

At that price (and the integrated effects section), I was a little afraid that Vestax skimp a little on quality, since it is expected to pay the same for a typical table without the effects section, but I recognize that this is an excellent price / quality ratio. I would do this choice without hesitation.

djlittlenemo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent Mixer / FX"

Vestax PMC-280
Mixer 4 channels (8 inputs), assignable crossfader, effect bank (18 FX assignable master or a way of crossfader).

(NOTE to those who left a negative: the crossfader curve is adjustable depending on the effect you want to do, must know how to use a table view before leaving like that!)

XLR or RCA, + return, etc..
In short, everything you'd expect from a good mixer!


FX goods are different from what is found on the tables Pioneer, and so much the better: two knobs allow you to adjust the dry / wet and tempo effect (a button 'TAP' can also define the current song tempo if the table has not BIOEN detected).
The effects are generally very effective and some originals!

Just CUE buttons are placed on the side and not on top of the tracks, it's a bit annoying when you mix, but not prohibitive.


To judge the quality of EQ, nothing more simple: drop the LOW, the MIDDLE, and HIGH and there .... no sound comes out!
So, yes, the Vestax EQ has very powerful and very effective.


Personally, I use it mostly in my studio to my models, make mixtapes and scan pieces. I have nothing to complain about!

Unfortunately, the happiness of all digital, it is a pity it has no MIDI or digital functionality. We are still in the analog pure juice.

it is rack


English or Japanese manual


egalizeur effectively when it does not sizzle


for 7 months and already two failures

I try ecler the top, Citronic, Freevox, pioneer ...

the least I will not break vestax but the big E M. .. speaking politely if you play around with the knob of the level do not go too in-stroke they will make you very soon
the three correction are hard and sizzling including bass
the cross fader to one side or the other sound is higher than in the center, perfect pout perhaps the scratch but otherwise I will not tell the difference in sound in the mix
the box was indeed frankly poor without comment

most anything

Value prices are too expensive for what it

I vestax scratch my shopping list
