Editors' Review

+

Digital deejaying has skyrocketed in popularity over the past five years and it's no wonder why. Compared to a full vinyl setup with all the hardware and physical media it requires, an MP3-based mixing station is extremely simple and cheap. There's even free software to get you started, and one of the most popular programs available is Virtual DJ.

Virtual DJ is often packaged with USB-based hardware mixing consoles from the likes of Hercules and Numark, and, in fact, if you really want to delve into the full array of features, such devices are going to be a necessity--and they'll require a $99 license fee to upgrade to the Pro version of the software. That said, you can download the app for free by itself and make very basic mixes and playlists.

While the program isn't specifically geared at newbies, it is intuitive enough for a musically inclined individual to use right off the bat. Once installed, Virtual DJ automatically populates a folder tree in the bottom left corner where you can easily access your music collection. The bottom middle serves as a tabbed, multifunction area where you can browse tracks, sample music bites, add effects, and make recordings.

The top of the window is dominated by two digital turntables, which are distinguished by color: blue on the left and red on the right. Each one has the ability to cue, loop, adjust pitch, scratch, and shift (among other features). In the middle is the mixing console, where you can adjust the gain and master volume, as well as transition between the two tracks. Once the songs have been dragged and dropped into the console, a bar along the top displays the sound waves of each to help with visual mixing. There's also a video input option that lets you create montages to the music.

The stylish interface and high number of features score points, but learning how to use the program is a hit-or-miss proposition. To be perfectly honest, using it without mixing hardware (that is, just a mouse and keyboard) is a challenge, and not one we enjoyed, so we recommend hooking up a compatible USB controller. Also worth a look: the thorough online user guide.

Virtual DJ is free, fully featured, and well-laid-out. It's a useful option both for aspiring mixers and newbies.

"Love it, love it"

March 09, 2011  |  By djwebster

 |  Version: Virtual DJ Home 7.0.2

Pros

this is great, I was using Traktor Pro for a while but my pc cant handle it on my wi-fi connection when im at gigs. But Virtual Dj is great, not as many options as Traktor, but it gives me alot of variety in what i can do, and it runs great.

Cons

I wish it had some more variety

Summary

Just loved it(:

"Useful yet a little complicated"

March 06, 2011  |  By debatra

 |  Version: Virtual DJ Home 7.0.2

Pros

1. Free
2. Useful for first timers like me
3. Lots of options available to use

Cons

1. A bit too complicated for new users
2. Some more features could have been provided.

Summary

I would have given it 5 stars if it had a little more clutter-free interface. Since it is a free software to start with, one can ignore that for a bit.

"Looks good, but it's to complicated for me..."

March 01, 2011  |  By sutudtong

 |  Version: Virtual DJ Home 7.0.2

Pros

cool look sounds decent for freebie what can you expect has several bugs if they get fixxed would be a really nice program

Cons

Pros: It is fairly easy to use and works pretty well. I have had no major problems with it. I am not, however, using it as a disc jockey. I am just using it as an MP3 player on my PC. I have had zero problems with it functioning.

Summary

ok to check out the software but if your serious about mixing buy pro and get a proper controller.you just dont get the hands on expierence that this software deserves

"De beste DJ software ooit!"

February 27, 2011  |  By stevoqx

 |  Version: Virtual DJ Home 7.0.2

Pros

Vlotheid in weergave van zowel video als audio bestanden.
Snelheid van het systeem. Vlotte weergave van 1080p videoclips en geripte VOB (dvd) bestanden.

Cons

Ik kan niets slecht aanmerken op deze software.

Summary

Ik had me voorgenomen om over te stappen van cd en DVD naar software. Ik kwam eerst in contact met PCDJ DEX en PCDJ VJ. Tot op heden werken die niet. Enkel problemen met die ****. Toppunt van schande was dat ik op een avond moest werken met video en dat mijn systeem tot 3 keer compleet vastliep. Ik probeerde tevergeefs hulp in te roepen bij de helpdesk maar ze hadden enkel over het niet voldoen van mijn PC. Nu downloadde ik Virtual DJ enkele weken terug (de gratis versie) om eens te proberen. Nu blijken al die problemen die ik bij PCDJ had hier niet te bestaan! Ik overwoog eerst om naar serato te gaan maar daar betaal je jezelf blauw aan hardware die ik niet nodig heb. Ik werk met een Denon DN HC 4500 met ingebouwde geluidskaarten en met de ASIO drivers. Ik ga nu voor een licentie van VIRTUAL DJ sparen, iemand mijn oude licentie van PCDJ kopen?
