The unit is now ready to operate.


MIDI Operation


The unit should be visible in the CONTROLLERS tab of Config and the “factory default” available/selected from the Mappings drop-down list.
The factory default Mapping offers the functions described in this Manual, however those can be adjusted to your needs via VDJ Script actions.

Find more details at
http://www.virtualdj.com/wiki/VDJ8script.html



AUDIO Setup


The unit is not offering a built-in audio interface (sound card), therefore no special button for the Stanton SCS1d with pre-defined audio configuration will be offered in this tab.

By default VirtualDJ will use the built-in sound card of your computer, but customized audio setups can be manually applied (see Audio Setup in VirtualDJ 8 manual)



For further VirtualDJ settings and features please refer to the User Guides of VirtualDJ 8.
