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.

"It is very good"

March 04, 2013  |  By roycelovell

 |  Version: Virtual DJ 7.3

Pros

I would recommend that anyone who really loves to mix music just buy it, try it but buy it if you want to use it as an actual DJ application.

Cons

complicated to use at first and hard to compile playlists

Summary

The sound config is excellent if only you could save it for longer than 10 minutes. ASIO support, so if like me you have a sound card (My sound card in my PC is only worth £35) that supports the ASIO driver, it is the best sound config and actually made everything I played sound 5 times better than ever while allowing me to play one track throught the speakers and cue the next on the Headphones.

"Nice! Thinking of going Pro."

February 09, 2013  |  By khaostechs

 |  Version: Virtual DJ 7.3

Pros

Decent tracks to scratch and mix up.

Cons

There was one, but it's an understandable con. You have to get the premium version to save anything that has copyright and you only get 30 seconds of playback from quality tracks.

Summary

I'll still use this because of all the fun and potential this program has.

"Its really just a Media player unless you pay!"

January 31, 2013  |  By limitsdownload

 |  Version: Virtual DJ 7.3

Pros

Its very good, lots of fun, takes a few hours to get used to the interface if you know a little about mixing but longer if you don't. Once you get to know it you start getting creative with the many easy to use features.

Cons

IT WILL NOT LET YOU USE A HEADPHONE AND SPEAKER CONFIG SO YOU CAN CUE UP THE NEXT TRACK ON YOUR HEADPHONES FOR ANY LONGER THAN 10 MINUTES, THEN YOU HAVE TO STOP EVERYTHING, RESTART IT, SET THE SOUND CONFIG AGAIN AND YOU GET ANOTHER TEN MINUTES. I have tried many different ways of setting the sound config but nothing works without the message that you have to buy it (£200+) or suffer the interuptions every 10 minutes. All the above means this free version is just a very attractive Media player with a couple of effect features. :(

Summary

It is very good and I would recommend that anyone who really loves to mix music just buy it, try it but buy it if you want to use it as an actual DJ application. The sound config is excellent if only you could save it for longer than 10 minutes. ASIO support, so if like me you have a sound card (My sound card in my PC is only worth £35) that supports the ASIO driver, it is the best sound config and actually made everything I played sound 5 times better than ever while allowing me to play one track throught the speakers and cue the next on the Headphones. 1 star for the free verion but 5 stars if you buy it. Overall 3.5 stars!
