Setting up a Behringer mixer in Virtual DJ software can be done by using your computer sound card. In order to use the Behringer mixer properly, you must have the proper cables. You must use 2 red and white RCA "Y Splitter" cables and a RCA "Y Splitter" headphone jack. Virtual DJ software enables you to pair your Behringer mixer with its audio interface by connecting the mixer line channel output to the sound card input.
