Albert Einstein once said that everything should be made simple, but not simpler. With Virtual DJ, you not only get a simple, clutter-free design mixing board interface that deceptively conceals a variety of high-quality, advanced tools and options, but you will have the capability to show off to your friends, party goers and club managers by creating WOW factor quality electronic music and video.
This DJ software offers usability that is painless and instantaneous, with both intuitive automatic and precise manual settings available to seamlessly direct your mixing efforts. Best of all, Virtual DJ automatically recognizes the style of music, adapting its mix to suit the tempo, pitch and key, or cueing the tools for manual changes. Ranked second in our lineup of DJ software for its ease-of-use and simplicity, Virtual DJ provides simplistic design and wide variety of tools that can be used to create the most complex mixes you can handle. Lacking only a few of the features of our top ranked TRAKTOR Duo, VDJ is second in performance and precision.
Virtual DJ offers some of the most intuitive and effortless automatic settings available in DJ software programs. Songs can be searched and downloaded directly from the internet into the music database. This net search capability also allows for instant searches on the web for songs you may not have in your repertoire and then allows you to stream them from the internet.
VDJ is compatible with iTunes playlists and also includes a CD to MP3 encoder to ensure a higher fidelity of audio compression. This software provides for both CoverFlow views and text only song browsing, while the song database itself comes complete with an easy-to-use search feature which can be categorized manually or automatically according to file location on a hard drive or playlist.
Playlists can be chosen automatically or manually within the program. Thereafter, VDJ takes over, smoothly transitioning between tracks, matching beats with the new FAME algorithm and automatically calculating and synchronizing BPM. Even in automatic mode, effects can be integrated in real-time with no delay.
VDJ is fully compatible with iTunes libraries and playlists, as well as other audio file formats such as MP3, WAV, ID3 and others. It also contains a Unicode compatibility feature. What this means is that all of your songs written in foreign languages can be played perfectly through this DJ software. This program features Automatic Hot-Swap for external hard drives, providing for easy use of files not located on the immediate hard drive. This DJ software can also function as a line-in for MIDI devices and external controllers.
This software comes equipped with ready-to-burn file recording, while also providing for the direct broadcast of DJ sets on the internet. Showing off to your buddies or becoming the next big hit on YouTube has never been easier. Karaoke capability is another awesome quality of VDJ. With this feature, VDJ can play the CDG+MP3 files, allowing for graphics and music, as well as ZIP files. The party can go on and on as you connect to the external video display and have a Karaoke fest with your text, music, and video display.
Second on our list for performance, Virtual DJ’s automated settings provide for smooth and seamless performances every time. A characteristic boasted by VDJ is the ability to maintain its simplistic approach while providing the complex features that more advanced DJ’s are looking for. The successful marriage of these two qualities prove this to be worthy of the second place rating. Those that wish to operate manually are unlikely to be disappointed when they apply effects, samples and loops. These effects are executed perfectly thanks to the Beat-aware effect plug-ins, automatic beat matching and automatic beat-aware LOOP functions.
Virtual DJ is the bomb when it comes to performance. One of the top performing DJ software available, VDJ is going to WOW the socks off your audience.
VDJ provides comprehensive help and support in almost all forms of communication. With official user guides readily available online and in document form (when you order the physical software) and hosting an online community that provides tutorials, technical support and a platform for broadcasting, no matter your question, you will always have somewhere to turn.
For anyone and everyone who wants to strut their stuff in the DJ booth, at your cousins wedding or in the comfort of your own home, VDJ provides for a unique experience in DJ software, offering an impressive variety of advanced controls and tools and yet never straying from a simple, easy-to-use interface. While it lacks some of the features and settings that top ranked TRAKTOR has, Virtual DJ is unlikely to let down.
