When recording a DJ mix using Virtual DJ, you must have the Virtual DJ application as well as audio samples to compose the mix. The Virtual DJ application allows you to mix, edit and compose audio samples and blend them into one mix, which is called "cross-fading." The Virtual DJ interface extends its musical reach by offering broadcasting and CD burning options for your DJ mix once it's created.
