话题: Does the paid version have better reverb? - Page: 2

From your replies I conclude VDJ cannot do reverb tails while the track continues to play, unless a third-party VST host (e.g. MUX or Image-Line Minihost Modular). The trick is to route the FX in parallel to the dry signal. I'll try those and see if it works well.
To be clear, the native reverb can do that, if the 'Trailing Stop' option inside the FX gui is enabled (and that is enabled by default)

Likewise, the native echo effect in VDJ has the same problems as the reverb effect. Delay feedback, wet/dry and "lock" all combined into a single knob, and the "trailing stop" button as an afterthought.
BTW there are two bugs with the reverb effect "trailing stop" button.
Bug 1: The reverb tail is cut off abruptly, rather than fading out gradually to the point where it's inaudible.
Bug 2: (using Deck 1 for example's sake)
1. Select reverb effect, ensure it's inactive for the time being
2. Click "+" button to show all reverb controls
3. Disable "trailing stop" and "wet only" (don't think this step matters...)
4. Turn all reverb controls to 100%
5. Press Play on deck
6. Activate reverb effect, let the deck play for a few seconds
7. Deactivate reverb effect
8. Stop deck (important!!)
9. Wait 30 seconds. Maybe go make a cup of tea. Come back.
10. Enable reverb effect again (the deck is still stopped)
Expected result: Enabling the reverb produces no sound output since the deck had been stopped for 30 seconds—no input to the reverb should produce no output.
Actual result: The reverb effect outputs a loud "ghost" reverb tail.

Stopping the music and having 30 seconds of silence, then turning the reverb on again, without any music playing. IMO it's never going to occur when the DJ is using the software in a normal manner.

So when could this "problem" be a problem? Off the top of my head, say you want to engage reverb before your next track starts playing. You are going to get that nice big loud burst of reverb.
The point is, it doesn't matter if it is or isn't likely to be a problem: it is a consistently reproducible issue and complacency is certainly not the solution. The issue needs to be acknowledged and, eventually, fixed.

I'm using PongDelay 2 in my DAW and its tail can go forever you want it to and it's buttery smooth with presets, settings and controls, however, it doesn't give the presets option settings when used in VDJ8. I've tried both the 32 and 64bit versions, but it's still useful when using it with fxProcessing setting set to post-fader. You can ignore the presets and dial in the rate, pan width, feedback, dry/wet and more to your liking.
I like using this on my sound effects and lasers, drops and more, but cool to use mid-song on a vocal, let it do its tail, then bring the channel back into the mix on beat to continue the phrase, or even at the end of a transition.

I've added a second switch to my diagram for completeness, so that, when needed, the FX tail can be interrupted abruptly as well.
(BTW [img] tags are not working for me)
Even if these features were added, is there a way to load third-party VSTs with a certain preset pre-loded? Because ATM all VSTs load with their factory default preset, not the one I'd like, which I need to load manually on each of the four decks every time I fire up VDJ. If I am using, say, 5 third-party VST, that's 20 presets loaded manually every time. That's one reason I prefer built-in FX. I'd be much happier if VDJ could just have a buttery smooth built-in reverb.

Parallel compression, also known as New York compression, is a dynamic range compression technique used in sound recording and mixing. Parallel compression, a form of upward compression, is achieved by mixing an unprocessed 'dry', or lightly compressed signal with a heavily compressed version of the same signal.
In some VSTs, it's not just a dry/mix (meaning how much you want of the effect, but it actually really mixes in both signals, the dry and how much of the wet signal together). It'll make the signal louder, but I guess that would be the added effect.

Seriously, nobody cares except you. The crowd just want to dance and have a good time.
They don't care what software you use, whether the FX have got a wet/dry knob, or anything other than you're playing a track they like.
