File Info

The File Info area displays information of the focused track in the File List or Sideview. The panel offers a preview player, Cover art, adjustable information fields, and an options menu.

  1. PREVIEW PLAYER. The preview displays the track entirety, its Cue points and Stems display if the track has been previously analyzed in a deck. Click on the Play button to play-pause the Prelisten Player or click inside the progress bar to prelisten to any part of the track. By default the Prelisten Player will use the headphones output. A security message will be displayed in case no headphones output is configured in the Audio Setup.

    An additional menu option will be offered if no Master or Headphones are configured in the Audio Setup (External Mixer setup). In this case choose Automatic if you want VirtualDJ to output the Prelisten Player to the selected deck or choose any of the available outputs if you wish to send the Prelisten Player to a specific deck output.

  2. Cover ART. Displays the Cover art of the file in focus. If a video file is selected, the Cover art will be replaced with the video preview of that selected file.

  3. LENGTH, BPM, KEY & RATING. Displays the the tracks analyzed time, BPM, and Key, as well as the Key Match Checkmark (same as Browser) to show if the song is compatible with the current playing track. A rating out of 5 stars is also displayed. The rating can be set or changed directly in the panel by hovering over the stars and clicking on the chosen value.

    Any or all of these values can be removed from being displayed in the Info Options.
