Virtual DJ is software for virtual, computer-based audio and video mixing. There are a number of versions and they range in price. The "Pro" version of Virtual DJ allows users to set up Midi/HID external controllers like external turntables, CD players and mixers. Setting up a mixer allows users to perform the mix using hardware rather than the virtual interface provided by the software. Using the hardware provides a more traditional mixing and DJing experience.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Computer with 4.1 soundcard
  • Virtual DJ Pro
  • Mixer
  • 2 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) RCA stereo plug to stereo male plugs

  1. 1

    Change the output from "Headphones" to "External Mixer" in the Virtual DJ Config. screen. The Config. screen is at the top right corner of the skin.

  2. 2

    Verify the channel assignment drop-down is at the default, which is "Left Deck/Left Channel" and "Right Deck/Right Channel." Adjust the soundcard from Mono-separated to the 4.1 card option.

  3. 3

    Plug the cables into the black and green outputs of the soundcard. Plug the other end of the cables into the line inputs of the mixer.

  4. 4

    Click on "Apply" in Virtual DJ and then click on the "Options" tab of the Config. dialogue box. Disable the virtual crossfader -- from the left-hand list, set the internal crossfader to "Disable." Click "OK" to close the dialogue box. The audio will now flow freely from Virtual DJ to the external mixer.
