Editors' Review

+

Gone are the days when you had to haul expensive, large equipment to a wedding or party to crank out the tunes. Now that music has gone digital, you just need your computer and an expansive MP3 playlist. And with Virtual DJ, you can mix and scratch your tunes like a professional to be the life of the party.

Now, we don't have a lot of experience with DJ software, but we think it speaks to Virtual DJ's smart design that we were able to immediately drag and drop a track to play. The program immediately pulled our iTunes playlist and other music files from our PC and displayed them in a tree menu for easy browsing. We selected a track and dragged it to the deck. Once it started playing, we were able to virtually "scratch" our track using our mouse to turn the dial. We did find it a little cumbersome to turn the dials with just our mouse; mixing hardware might be a good investment if you are serious about spinning. Virtual DJ includes dials that let you applying various effects, including backspin, beatgrid, and overloop. You have two decks so that you can start playing one song and have the next one ready to go to make a smooth transition without interrupting the music. Blue and red sound waves at the top of the window representing each deck let you visually mix your tracks. For any newbies out there, an ample online Help guide will answer any questions you have beyond the normal setup, but we found ourselves quickly becoming comfortable with the program by just playing around with the dials.

Virtual DJ does install desktop icons without your permission. You'll also want to pay attention during installation, or it will install a toolbar and change your default search to Ask.com. However, it does uninstall cleanly. We recommend this program for all user levels.

"W-A-Y COOL!"

October 13, 2012  |  By the_webninja

 |  Version: Virtual DJ 7.0.5

Pros

I like the way it looks, I like the fact that you don't have to read a novel about the program just to use it, everything is laid out in front of you just like a DJ console, I like the Colors of the Program, I like the effects which became addicting to play around with. Once you start messing with this program you will easily get locked into a DJ Trance and lose track of all time.

Cons

I found a few of the Knobs didn't want to turn very easily, such as the Gain knob for some reason didn't want to move hardly at all.
I think more work needs to be done to enhance the controls functionality a little. Do that, and this Program would be the Ultimate!

Summary

This Program was a Blast to play with, it seemed like I never had enough time to finish messing with it. It is going to be my new DJ Program for my Laptop.

Non really. Have never used to an exterior controller, so can not comment.

"Brilliant for beginners!"

August 09, 2012  |  By 5uperLike

 |  Version: Virtual DJ 7.0.5

Pros

.Easy to get used to (my opinion)
.Have noticed no crashes and i'm using my netbook! (to get it to work on a netbook you have to be administrator otherwise it will not install properly. (I had the same issue but you can choose what user to install it to after)
.Lets you record your remixes into mp3 or wav I think. Up to 320kbps!
.sorts out your music so you can find it quickly.
.Lots of effects to mess around with.

Cons

.Eats up lots of cpu
.Not exactly the full free version so you can't call it freeware for that reason... but its enough! (don't let that put you off...you don't really need the full version.)

Summary

Great software for people who want a simple dj program and want to be able to have the look and feel of a real professional looking dj program at no cost.
Would I recommend it?... yes.
