VirtualDJ offers a few special options regarding controllers like Rane Twelve that feature motorized platter.
You can find these options by opening VirtualDJ settings, clicking on "Options
" icon on the left, and typing "motor
" on the search box on the top.
DESCRIPTIONMotorWheelInstantPlayWhen this option is enabled (default setting) VirtualDJ ignores the ramp up time of the platter when you start the playback of a track. This means that the playback is instant as you would expect from a controller with non-motorized platters.
The draw back of this setting is that until the platter reaches it's full speed you can't hold the deck by holding the platter as you would do on a traditional turntable.
If you want to be able to hold the deck immediately after you press play to start playback, or you prefer to have the deck start with a ramp up sound then you can disable this option.
Attention: MotorwheelInstantPlay setting only affects starting the deck by PLAY button. Starting the deck by HOTCUE buttons is always instant (VirtualDJ always ignores the ramp up time of the platter) MotorWheelSmoothPercentThis setting helps smoothing the motorized platter speed against fluctuations due to OS delays in receiving the MIDI messages.
This is an advanced setting that you should not alter unless you have issues and support team asks you to do soMotorWheelLockTimeControls the number of seconds that VirtualDJ waits for the platter to speed up or stop completely when you start/stop a deck. When MotorWheelInstantPlay is disabled, this setting affects only the stop time.
