VirtualDJ 8.2 is released

Veröffentlicht in DJ Software

Atomix Productions is proud to announce a new version of its flagship software VirtualDJ, which brings many important improvements and new features:

In an era where DJ hardware is moving more and more toward a better synergy with DJ software, we redesigned VirtualDJ to be more controller-centric.
As such, the new pad section will fit right at home on most modern controllers, but at the same time brings a versatility and easiness that is the trademark of VirtualDJ.

The audio engine has been improved, and we managed to perfect even more our already top-of-the-line BPM analysis algorithm.
And our acclaimed video engine also saw some significant performance boost with a smarter use of hardware acceleration.

The connected aspect has not been forgotten, with some brand new features like Ask.The.DJ

And of course, the overall stability has been maintained to rock-solid level, with the lowest crash ratio in the industry.

Setup for DJing with time-code vinyl discs

Veröffentlicht in Tech Tips

DJing with time-code vinyl requires
- a DJ software capable of time-code DJing as VirtualDJ Pro, Cross, and 2 time-code vinyl discs supported by the DJ software
- 2 DJ turntables,
- an DJ controller whose audio interface has 2 stereo inputs supporting phono level if the DJ turntables have a phono output level, for example a Hercules DJ Console Rmx2, 4-Mx, Rmx, Mk4 or Mk2.

Then you have 2 possible installations:
- Either you use no analogue mixer: you then use the Hercules DJ Console mixer controls
- Or you use an analogue mixer: you then use the mixer instead of the central controls of Hercules DJ Console.

A) With no analogue mixer
- Connect the outputs of the turntables to Hercules DJConsole Rmx2 :
  - the turntable located on left on inputs 1-2
  - the turntable located on right on inputs 3-4
  - set the inputs on phono level if your turntables output is in phono level,
  - activates your inputs in your DJConsole Rmx2 control panel,
- Connect the headphones on DJConsole Rmx2 headphones output plug, on front panel or on top panel,
- Connect your speakers on DJ Console Rmx2 outputs 1-2 (dual XLR or dual RCA)
- Play your time-code vinyl discs on your 2 turntables
- Run your DJ software, and calibrate your inputs in time code vinyl mode
- your turntable on left side now controls the left virtual deck, your turntable on the right side now controls the right-side virtual deck.
The connections are as follows


B) With an analogue mixer
- Connect the outputs of the turntables to Hercules DJConsole Rmx2 :
  - the turntable located on left on inputs 1-2
  - the turntable located on right on inputs 3-4
  - set the inputs on phono level if your turntables output is in phono level,
  - activates your inputs in your DJConsole Rmx2 control panel,
- Connect the output 1-2 of your DJConsole Rmx2 to the input 1-2 of the analogue mixer,
- Connect the output 3-4 of your DJConsole Rmx2 to the input 3-4 on the analogue mixer,
- Connect the headphones on the mixer headphones output plug,
- Connect your speakers on the mixer master outputs
- Play your time-code vinyl discs on your 2 turntables
- Run your DJ software, and calibrate your inputs in time code vinyl mode
- your turntable on left side now controls the left virtual deck, your turntable on the right side now controls the right-side virtual deck.
The connections are as follows

VirtualDJ 8.1 Release

Veröffentlicht in DJ Software

Atomix Productions is announcing the imminent release of VirtualDJ 8.1 : the most used and most stable DJ software is becoming more robust than ever and adds Shazam integration, collaborative CloudLists, and GeniusDJ, to its set of features.


Any DJ knows that the most important feature of any DJ software is actually never crashing. A one-minute software crash when mixing can ruin the whole night. The VirtualDJ developers have spent the past 15 months relentlessly fixing every single bug, even if there was only a single occurrence reported out of millions of users. The latest build of VirtualDJ 8.0 already was the most stable of DJ software, as independent research has proven *, VirtualDJ 8.1 should now be the indisputable stability standard, at a time when competitors are rushing their software developments to catch up with VirtualDJ’s leading feature set, compromising on their own stability.

The other good news is that VirtualDJ has been staying true to its mantra since 1996, revolutionizing the digital DJ’ing world by always introducing new features. So, with better than ever stability and the most complete feature set, also comes :

  • Shazam integration : VirtualDJ now integrates with Shazam. Shazamed a song lately ? You’ll find it in your Shazam folder directly in VirtualDJ. You can use it and organize it as you like.
  • GeniusDJ : drag and drop a song or group of tracks into the GeniusDJ folder and VirtualDJ will automatically tell you what other songs are usually played after these tracks. The suggestions do not rely on pseudo-mathematical properties of the songs, or the taste of a few curators, but use the power of having hundreds of millions of DJs using VirtualDJ, to get real trends of what DJs are actually playing today.
  • Cloudlists : you can also get more curated lists by importing CloudLists, created by other VirtualDJ users to help their fellow DJs keep up-to-date with the latest trends in specific genres, or learn what’s hot in genres you don’t know as well. Or you can create or join your own CloudLists and start sharing your knowledge with the world.

Atomix Productions is the leading DJ software studio worldwide. With over 150M downloads of its VirtualDJ software, it has been embodying the revolution of digital DJ’ing since 1996 and accompanying all DJs from bedroom to super star.

* Based on an independent study, which compared the number of crashes reported on various forums over the total number of users for each DJ software.
