VirtualDJ 8 Setup

Download and install VirtualDJ 8 from http://www.virtualdj.com/download/index.html (in case you have not done already)

Once VirtualDJ 8 is launched, a Login Window will appear. Login with your virtualdj.com account credentials.

A Pro Infinity, a PLUS or a Pro Subscription License is required to use the AKAI AMX. Without any of the above Licenses, the controller will operate for 10 minutes each time you restart VirtualDJ.

A detection window will appear next asking to use or not the pre-defined audio setup with the built-in sound card of the AMX. You can still change that from Settings->AUDIO tab.

The unit is now ready to operate.

The unit should be visible in the CONTROLLERS tab of Config and the “factory default” available/selected from the Mappings drop-down list.
