Once VirtualDJ 8 is launched, a Login Window will appear. Login with your virtualdj.com account.
A Pro Infinity, a DDJ-XP1 Plus or a Pro Subscription License is required to fully use the Pioneer DDJ-XP1 Without any of the above Licenses, the controller will operate for 10 minutes each time you restart VirtualDJ.
Click to OK.
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.
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
The unit is not offering any pre-defined audio configuration, as no built-in audio interface is available. Depending on the sound card you need to use, manually create the necessary Master and Headphones audio configuration.
By default VirtualDJ 8 will send the Master Output to the built-in (default) sound card of your computer.
For further software settings please refer to the User Guide of VirtualDJ 8.
