What I love most about VirtualDJ is the beat sync feature!
Holy shit!

Back in my day I had to try sync the beat manually (and when not done right, it's horrendous)... now it's just a simple click of a button!

I am about to throw this mixer through my monitor...

Have no idea how to set this mixer up using the USB connection.
I don't have RCA cables because I assumed USB would be enough to connect.

Apparently the USB is only fixed to channel 2... what use is that!!
Here you go, a 2 channel mixer that can be connected via a usb cable... but if you do that you can only use 1 channel...

I cant even get this 1 channel to work for crying out loud...

Anyone familiar with VirtualDJ software that can help me?

It says I need to buy a licence to use the mixer on it - but I can apparently use the mixer on it for free for 10mins at a time.
So I should be able to get the mixer working on the free version

Is the one sound card in my desktop enough to use a dual channel analog mixer?

Or does each channel need it's own sound card?

I'm an idiot :)

Can't control VirtualDJ with a mixer.
I need a controller.

Back to the drawing board :)

Just ordered the Pioneer DDJ 200 for £109, plus £12 to get it here tomorrow.

I spoke to someone on the VDJ forum and this is compatible, and I can use the speakers through my computer.

Brace yourselves for some drunken messages tomorrow night :)

(Maybe even tonight... who knows!)

Just want to give an update...
What a fucking nightmare I've had with all this...
Largely self-inflected of course!

I got the DDJ-200 controller after... i dunno... 14 days ago?
I had trouble getting the headphones to work through it because I'm a bellend.

I spoke to some kind (and patient) people on the VDJ forum and we eventually got there!
I was mixing some things up, and as a result, I was having audio issues.

I now have full control and can give this a good practice for the remaining 15 days of my free trial (giving by Pioneer DJJ-200) on Virtual DJ, before I then have to pay for a licence to be able to use my controller (free for home use using KB and Mouse).

I got drunk last Sunday night and decided to stay up to 8am the next morning, "organising" my music into categories.
I don't know what I did... I mean... it's not a complete mess, but surely I should have put some focus into organising them by BPM and not some arbitrary categories like I did :unsure: 🤷‍♂️

My review of Virtual DJ so far is very positive!
The free version gives a great gauge on whether it's for you.
They offer different skin/layouts too which I have not tried out yet.

You can take a look at their pricing for the licences, but I think they are reasonably priced.
If you are a pro who is out making money using this, then I would agree with the price.
I believe for people like me, I can pay a very reasonable 1 off fee for home use WITH controller.... I need to have a proper look when this trial runs out. But either way, I will likely purchase the cheapest licence.

@Trader333 Thank you very much for the help mate.
If I had have read some of your suggestions properly, I would have save myself time and money by getting the controller instead of the mixer, lol

Appreciate the help brother!

EDIT:
I mean, by getting the controller instead of the incompatible analogue mixer

I would put it all down to experience, you will work it all out soon enough :)

We'll put it down to being similar to paying our dues in trading/investing (losses but a gain of experience)
