Topic: CONTROLLER
hi.....relatively new to Virtual DJ but enjoying and wondering about a very basic controller .....an area I know little or nothing about......any recommendations?.......also if a controller comes with Virtual DJ LE 8........I have VDJ 8.2 and an analog mixer licence.......what other licence would I need to buy? .....I am an enthusiastic amateur with no intention of playing for money........who knows though ^_^

Well what's your budget?

Also, what kit are you using with your analogue mixer license?

Whatever controller you buy, you'd need to buy a license for that controller. IMO you would've been better off buying a Pro license to start with, then any kit you bought/buy - past, present or future - won't cost you extra for another license.

Numark DJ2GO2. Only £60 and a great wee controller for a beginner with built in sound card.

Sadly it's Serato supported so you would need an additional VDJ controller licence.

thanks for advice and may well go for the pro licence....would still like recommendations for best quality enthusiastic beginner controller that will work well with VDJ......not sure I need the 'jog wheels' though as I have no idea what they do.......last time I DJ'd was way back in the day with two decks and one big rheostat between them and a basic EQ

They do exactly the same as the ones on screen in VDJ.
