VirtualDJ Series Review

VirtualDJ is DJ mixing software that allows you to add multiple track decks – as many as you can handle, for that matter – but only allows you to program three hot cues. Because this DJ software does not have color-coded waveforms, which help you identify the hi-hats, kicks and snares within the wave easily, it may not be the best choice if you're new to mixing music. The interface is easy to use, but if you're not a fan of its aesthetic, you can download user-made interfaces from VirtualDJ's website.

The input and output features of VirtualDJ allow you to access your entire digital music file library instantly. It can detect musical keys for you so that all your mixes come out in tune, set your BPM counter automatically, and interface with a number of different MIDI and HID controllers, which lets you focus on adding effects to your mixes and sets. This versatile music mixing software can be used in conjunction with timecode CDs or vinyl, giving you the ability to scratch digitized music on an old-school turntable. Its timecode solution also is compatible with most music video files.

VirtualDJ is taking advantage of the new and emerging technologies in the DJ software world. This DJ mixing software allows you to automatically develop loops, add gimmicks and samples to your live track on the fly and use an external audio mixer. If you opt for the streaming subscription, VirtualDJ can track down a missing song in your library and stream it automatically, so you're able to mix live and never be without the hottest track.

The customer service and technical support include telephone support (for English speaking customers only), a ticket box that allows you to send a written question to the service, and support staff for personal attention and community page. On this community page, you will find a number of other DJs communicating about everything important in the DJ realm.

VirtualDJ is an impressive product, and the company’s website does an outstanding job at presenting the information on its other DJ mixing software. This software has many of the tools that you desire in a premium DJ program.
