Release your inner DJ
The basic DJ tools are wrapped up conveniently in this all-in-one software. Songs and playlists made with this program are perfect for any event.
Be the center of the party
Virtual DJ is here to simplify your music sets, and to make playlist creation a breeze while impressing you with stunning visuals.
Get the party started with your favorite tracks with this program. The software lets you focus on both audio and visual performances so that you can impress your audience.
Video DJing just got an upgrade. This application is all about the visuals, and you don’t have to download a bunch of music videos in advance. If you get a song request or don’t like the music video of the song you’re mixing, changing your set requires a couple of clicks! You can choose between a few different visual options to enrich your experience. One of the video modes will create animations based on the music you’re playing. It reacts to the beat and frequency of the audio and displays illuminating visuals so that the audience have an engaging experience.
Besides animations, you can also get Videoskins to play album art, a slideshow or any other pictures while you play a set. It’s a full-screen show that adds more depth to your music, and you have full control over what images are displayed.
You can also set this stream to Facebook or YouTube. In previous versions of this application, this was only possible by using a third-party program. The software itself now offers a quick and easy sharing service. Everyone can join in on the party, even if they aren’t there in person.
Despite these cool new features, Virtual DJ is somewhat basic. The new version has definitely improved its visuals as well as just audio. But for the price tag included with the Pro and Advanced versions, you would expect some more in-depth tools.
Where can you run this program?
Virtual DJ is available on computers using Windows 7 and later. There is also a version available on Mac that requires OS X 10.6 or a newer operating system.
Is there a better alternative?
No. This software might be lacking detailed tools, but it still outshines its competition. A similar, music mixing tool is Mixxx.
Virtual DJ is an impressive tool for anyone who wants to play sets but isn’t familiar with the tricky setup. It could do with more features but still offers a rich multimedia experience.
Should you download it?
Yes. It’s free for home use and is an essential tool for DJing if you’re starting out.
