Editors' review

Virtual DJ Studio looks and feels like a professional mixing tool, but it's missing some of the more advanced editing tools you might need. True to that, it boils down some of the most common mixing tools into a few basic steps for rookies, although it would benefit from better labeling. The bigger downside is that you can't save your work without an upgrade.

Virtual DJ Studio opens with a relatively obnoxious audio file playing and a tutorial waiting for you. It lets you control nine different audio files at once. You can adjust the volume, add effects, and cut and trim music files with a few easy touches. There are lots of different effects in this soundboard, but none of them are clearly labeled. That means you have to experiment to get the exact sound you want. There's a neat karaoke mode, but you have to supply the music. Once you've finished, you can't save all of your files together without upgrading to the full version of the software.

If you don't mind your tracks sounding a little amateur, give Virtual DJ Studio a try. Just remember that you'll have to tinker with it a lot to get the exact sound you're looking for. Additionally, this software will be cheaper than Pro Tools and a little easier to use, as well.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Virtual DJ Studio 6.6.

    September 29, 2013   |   By webopolis

    Version: Virtual DJ Studio 6.9.7

    Pros

    Out of all the karaoke hosting software I've tried, this is the best one. I have to say, it's better than software that costs much more. Seriously give it a try, I think you'll agree.

    Cons

    None that I've seen.

    "excellent program for a wedding DJ"

    January 26, 2012   |   By ABETTERDJAND

    Version: Virtual DJ Studio 5.3

    Pros

    Ease of use, being able to cue up 12 players at the same time, the EQ makes my laptop sound better than a CD, auto play, inexpensive

    Cons

    Has worked flawlessly for over a year. 1 WARNING... do not change the display on your screen. The play button does not function at over 96DPI

    Summary

    I was probably one of the last DJs to make the switch from dual CD player to digital. Yes, I was still lugging around 170 pounds of CDs 2 years ago! I tried many of the popular DJ programs, Virtual DJ, Traktor, PCDJ, etc and wasn't impressed enough to stay with them.

    Then I stumbled into Virtual DJ Studio and downloaded the trial version. I told my wife that I liked the way this program looks and would probably be using it after having a few days to get used to it. After an hour of playing around with it on my home computer I was convinced I could handle it so I downloaded it to my DJ Laptop.

    One of the things that kept me from going digital was the fact that even though I had a blazing fast laptop with tons of storage the sound card in it sounded like and old AM radio. I bought a mini mixer to bump up the sound to at least OK... but it just wasn't the quality I was used to hearing. Once I fired up the VDJ Studio and tweaked the EQ I was amazed at the sound I got. A little more tweaking and I was already convinced that this program is the answer to me going Digital!

    Later on I discovered that you can right click a song that is playing and a mini EQ pops up so you can shape just the song playing without messing with your main mix... what a great feature. Also although it doesn't play every format of karaoke, it does play most of them and how cool to be able to drag and drop and have the screen automatically pop up when a Karaoke song starts!

    I love that I can cue up several songs, hot the trigger (auto play) feature, and go out and mingle with the guests, hit the bathroom, whatever I need to do with out worrying about the music stopping. I use the last player for dinner music and just let it rip so it gives me time to go around an get requests.

    This is a great program and we have recommended it to hundreds of DJs in our network... most are using it now as their main player. You owe it to yourself to get the full version 30 day trial, I think you'll buy it and it will be one of the best $30 bills you ever spent :D
    Happy Spinning!

    "Promising product - non-existent support!!!"

    November 21, 2010   |   By vbevans

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Plenty of manual features - reasonably easy to understand and use. Good power for the price. Have been a licensed user for over 2 years.

    Cons

    ver 5.3 has a major bug that causes the entire system to crash after playing some zipped karaoke files - not good in the middle of a show. Developer has failed to respond to numerous support requests over past 2 years.

    Summary

    Could use a little more automation, but until the developer honors his claim of support what could be a dynamite program is only mediocre.

    "No fade options"

    October 05, 2010   |   By derique1

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Very simple to use

    Cons

    Too simple to use with not enough options in a real world situation

    Summary

    At least they have a good un-install option that doesn't leave files behind in your registry

    Updated on Oct 5, 2010

    Forgot to mention they also need to allow re-sizing of the GUI
