Topic: SoundSwitch
Hi folks. I recently purchased a SoundSwitch hardware interface to play around with. I guess initially SS only supported Serato but now it supports VDJ as well. However, I am having issues with it during the Edit portion of using the software. I am wondering if anyone is successfully using SoundSwitch with VDJ. Matt, the chief engineer and founder of SS is great with support and has already had one remote working session with me. His engineering staff is on holiday this week so while I have some time I am trying to gather as much info to help him as possible.

It's kind of weird in that I have two laptops and a desktop. All of the machines are having some trouble reading the VDJ files (track list, virtual folders, playlists) but only the laptops fail when trying to actually create scripts for the lighting. The desktop machine seems to be ok with that function. All three systems are running Windows 10 Pro at the most current update level so it's a bit mysterious why they react differently to the software.

If anyone is using SS with VDJ on a Windows system, please let me know how your experience is going so far. I think it's going to evolve into a great product. They have already talked with me about some fantastic upgrades to it's functionality coming in the first quarter. It's really new so some growing pains are normal. I was a computer engineer for a major bank for over 30 years and I've seen all kinds of growing pains over the years with new products, even with products that had dozens of high level programmers working on them.

If you've never look at SS, take a look. I currently do mostly wedding DJ work so something that can make my light shows much more fancy looking without requiring hundreds of hours of lighting programming is very attractive to me (no, I don't work for SS LOL).

So let me know if you have any experience with it .............. thanks ............. Rob

I don't have the hardware for SS but have SS software installed on Win7 machine.

With the VDJ track files, many just have an entension with no title, no filename, no author. Guessing about half complete with correct results. The other ones just display an excension like mp3, wav, etc. Changing the order or adding files in VDJ requires a restart of SS it appears in order to see the changes.

I don't have much in my playlist but what I have seemed ok except length of song was always zero. For tracks that display correctly the length appears correct but not for playlist.

I guess you see the same thing on your machines or maybe more. I did not spend much time with it.

Did not mess with script but maybe some kind of permissions issue since it runs on one machine and not the others. You can check it you are running as administrator and then go on from there if that does not help.

Been using SS for about a month and half now with now problems at all.

I’m on a Mac though.

And yes, it’s a wonderful program and is super easy to use and the guys at SS have some of the best support I’ve ever had, period!!

Same problem. The plugin is installed and enabled. VDJ folders don't appear in Soundswitch, although I can do a manual selection of a track, load it, set a beatgrid and autoscript a lightshow for it. But the lightshow doesn't automatically start when that track is played in VDJ.

It seems to me that the SS software is still in its infancy and not quite ready for gig use yet.

Works for me just fine and has since they’ve released the plugin.

Why don’t you hit up SS’s support line. The guys are super friendly and always ready to help.

SS with VDJ is SHOW READY and I’m proof.....

Will they assist even though I haven't yet bought the hardware?

I'm not going to buy it unless I can be assured I can get it to work..
