VirtualDJ (VDJ) is a feature-packed deejaying software for mixing and playing digital audio and video tracks. The UI resembles a classic DJ setup with a mixer and two turntables but can be expanded to 4 decks or more. Its vinyl emulation feature allows to control music files on the computer through physical turntables which makes the mixing and scratching experience authentic and far more powerful than using keyboard and mouse. VirtualDJ's large range of features include standard controls (play, pause, stop, and cue), automatic BPM and KEY calculation, a 3 band equalizer, pitch control, real scratch simulation, karaoke support, CD to MP3 encoder, compatibility with iTunes playlists, recording of DJ sessions and many more.
This version is a significant milestone in the history of VirtualDJ. Unlike the transition to v7 from v6, or to v6 from v5 etc, where we just added new significant features (like video support, 99 decks, ContentUnlimited, etc), for the v8 transition, we rewrote our software from the ground up. VirtualDJ was first started in 1996, and in the following 15 years, we kept adding more and more features, to keep pushing the limit of how technology can help you mix better. But, 15 years of layers upon layers of new code, can get quite messy, and our development speed was slowing down. That ;s why we spent the last 3 years to rewriting everything clean and fresh, so that for the next 20 years, new breakthrough features will keep coming at lightning speed, update after update.
