Advanced Setup



MIDI Operation
The unit should be visible in the CONTROLLERS tab of Config and the “factory default” available/selected from the Mappings drop-down list. The factory default Mapping offers the functions described in this Manual, however those can be adjusted to your needs via VDJ Script actions.
Find more details at
http://www.virtualdj.com/wiki/VDJscript.html


AUDIO Setup
This unit does not have a built in sound interface and therefore you need to use a separate soundcard (such as Numark DJiO2) as per the screenshot below. Please note that if you are using a PLUS Controller or a LE License then only a “Master + Headphones” audio setup is valid regardless of the capabilities of your soundcard..


For further software settings please refer to the User Guides of VirtualDJ 8.
