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 or a Pro Subscription License is required to use the Pioneer DDJ-RR. Without any of the previously mentioned 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 Pioneer DDJ-RR.
Click on the "Use Soundcard" button if your speakers are connected to the Master Output of the DDJ-RR.

Click OK.

The unit is now ready to operate.

Midi Operation

The unit should be visible in the CONTROLLERS tab of Config and the “factory default” available/selected from the Mappings drop-down list.
The factory default Mapping offers the functions described in this Manual, however those can be adjusted to your needs via VDJ Script actions.

Find more details at http://www.virtualdj.com/wiki/VDJ8script.html

Notice that the unit will appear twice in the list. The second entry refers to the HID protocol and holds the mapping for the Jogs, Volume faders, and Crossfader. The HID protocol is offered when the unit is set to the "rekordbox" mode. See details in Settings

Audio Setup

The unit has a pre-defined Audio setup and a special button in the AUDIO tab of Config to provide that. Alternative Audio setups can be applied in the same window.

Timecode (DVS)* configuration is also available (see DVS Support ).

*requires Pro Infinity or Timecode License http://www.virtualdj.com/buy/index.html
