Editors' Review

+

VirtualDJ 8 records, edits, and mixes digital audio and video from a wide range of sources for free. V8 is no mere upgrade but a significant new release of a robust and refined suite. Atomix Productions entirely re-coded its flagship software, giving it an all-new sound engine and improving sampling, browser, and effects, as well as adding important new capabilities, like video.

Pros

Console: VirtualDJ 8's dark-toned layout resembles a studio mixing console with twin turntable pads and control panels, but it's easier to manage than others we've tried. Bright icon colors are particularly legible in low-light environments.

Sandbox: The new Sandbox lets you prepare your next mix while the audience is still dancing to your current beats.

Sampler: An all-new sampler can play an unlimited number of samples. Samples are now on the sideView, which also quickly opens music, videos, filters, Cloud Lists, and just about anything else in VirtualDJ 8.

Cons

Account required: It's not a big deal to most users, but you'll need an account to access some of VirtualDJ 8's online features. Accounts are free, and you can log in via Google or your Microsoft account via openID or create a new account.

Bottom Line

VirtualDJ 8 is a completely new tool that builds on the rugged, reliable performance of its predecessors with across-the-board upgrades and significant new features, starting with video. That it still does so much, so well, and for free isn't so much a mystery as a tribute.

"Intuitive and Robust"

May 03, 2015  |  By Toxic_Aftertaste

2015-05-03 23:39:35  |  By Toxic_Aftertaste

 |  Version: VirtualDJ 8 8.0.2206

Pros

Easy to use
Customizable controls
Powerful mixing and sampling tools

Cons

Uses a lot of system resources
Web based features require an account

Summary

I'm using an older computer. AMD C-60 processor and 4Gigs ram and Windows 7. With this rig, and no other applications, the program can be slow to respond, and playback can stall for short periods of time if pushed too hard. Serious DJs will need a considerably more powerful system.
