VirtualDJ Setup


Download and install VirtualDJ 8 from http://www.virtualdj.com/download/index.html (in case you have not done already)


Once VirtualDJ 8 is launched, a Login Window will appear to enter your virtualdj.com account credentials.

A Pro Infinity, a Plus or a Pro Subscription License is required to fully use the Mixvibes VFX Control. Without any of the above Licenses, the controller will operate for 10 minutes each time you restart VirtualDJ.

A detection window will appear right after, asking to use or not the pre-defined audio setup with the built-in sound card of the VFX Control. You can still change that from Settings->AUDIO tab.

Click on the "Use Soundcard" button if your speakers are connected to the Player 1 Output of the VFX Control

Click to OK




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.
