VirtualDJ Remote 无线控制客户端  


On a phone, the VDJ Remote focusses on deck information and controls from the main interface so that VirtualDJ can be monitored and controlled while away from the main computer. Anything that is done in the remote will directly reflect on the software interface on the computer as well. Multiple remotes can be connected and used at the same time.


At the top of the Remote Interface are the Application Controls. This provides information on the current status of the software as well as controls to use different features.
