Virtual DJ Studio Description
Virtual DJ Studio is a software application which supports karaoke, audio mixing, playlists, and even multiple sound cards. It is ideal for parties and may seem complicated to work with, but it’s actually quite simple and fun once you get used to it.
Installation and interface
The setup procedure does not take a long while to finish, and users may ask the tool to install extra karaoke backgrounds. As far as the interface goes, Virtual DJ Studio looks overwhelming at a first glance, especially to the inexperienced user.
Add multiple songs, start mixing and quickly adjust settings
It’s made of multiple mixers where you can import different tracks and play them at a time. The supported formats include MP3 and WAV. Standard and advanced audio controls for each mixer revolve around repeat mode, mute, trigger, along with channel, volume, tempo and equalizer adjustment. All songs can be controlled at a time when it comes to the master volume, mute, along with automatic gain control.
It is possible to edit ID3 tags, change file name display options, enable fade effect between tracks for smooth transitions, as well as activate zero pitch control, among others. All files and settings can be cleared to start from scratch, or the current configuration can be saved and reused at a later time.
Music database, karaoke queue and saved singers
Virtual DJ Studio sports several handy extra tools. For example, local folders indicated by the user can be indexed to compile a music database and easily locate favorite songs in a huge playlist to prepare for karaoke by adding them to a queue. However, they have to be karaoke files (MP3 and WAV not supported). Frequent singers can be recorded into a separate area for quick access.
Configure program settings easily
The app can be set to automatically play files which were dropped in the main frame, clear lines when done playing and check for software updates on a weekly basis. You can change display settings by hiding the analyzer for each line, modifying the number of player lines, customizing the UI color scheme, switching to other audio devices (primary and secondary), and so on.
Evaluation and conclusion
The application has a great response time and low-to-moderate impact on computer performance. There were no kind of issues throughout our tests, since it did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. To conclude, Virtual DJ Studio is both fun and practical, and definitely simpler to get accustomed to, compared with other tools from its category.
