Forum: VirtualDJ Plugins
It's kind of weird in that I have two laptops and a desktop. All of the machines are having some trouble reading the VDJ files (track list, virtual folders, playlists) but only the laptops fail when trying to actually create scripts for the lighting. The desktop machine seems to be ok with that function. All three systems are running Windows 10 Pro at the most current update level so it's a bit mysterious why they react differently to the software.
If anyone is using SS with VDJ on a Windows system, please let me know how your experience is going so far. I think it's going to evolve into a great product. They have already talked with me about some fantastic upgrades to it's functionality coming in the first quarter. It's really new so some growing pains are normal. I was a computer engineer for a major bank for over 30 years and I've seen all kinds of growing pains over the years with new products, even with products that had dozens of high level programmers working on them.
If you've never look at SS, take a look. I currently do mostly wedding DJ work so something that can make my light shows much more fancy looking without requiring hundreds of hours of lighting programming is very attractive to me (no, I don't work for SS LOL).
So let me know if you have any experience with it .............. thanks ............. Rob

With the VDJ track files, many just have an entension with no title, no filename, no author. Guessing about half complete with correct results. The other ones just display an excension like mp3, wav, etc. Changing the order or adding files in VDJ requires a restart of SS it appears in order to see the changes.
I don't have much in my playlist but what I have seemed ok except length of song was always zero. For tracks that display correctly the length appears correct but not for playlist.
I guess you see the same thing on your machines or maybe more. I did not spend much time with it.
Did not mess with script but maybe some kind of permissions issue since it runs on one machine and not the others. You can check it you are running as administrator and then go on from there if that does not help.

And yes, it’s a wonderful program and is super easy to use and the guys at SS have some of the best support I’ve ever had, period!!

It seems to me that the SS software is still in its infancy and not quite ready for gig use yet.

SS with VDJ is SHOW READY and I’m proof.....

Soundswitch 1.6 just released - introducing midi controlled static scene overrides..
"SoundSwitch 1.6 includes the new Static Looks feature that allows you to create generic lighting scenes which can then be launched via MIDI or onscreen buttons. Static Looks override Autoloops and Scripted Tracks offering the ability set static scenes on the fly while DJing, set the mood for a specific part of an event or for use as a standalone lighting solution. General stability and UI improvements also in the mix - VDJ users you will like the fixes included.
I'm downloading now .. coool

Get ready for a bunch of questions...
I'm thinking about a good DMX software investment. MyDMX 3.0 seems like a good start, but I am now checking out SoundSwitch. This thread is not too active lately. How is it going with VDJ/Windows 10?
Would SoundSwitch be a good alternative to MyDMX or a supplement to or what? Does it have a 3D visualizer?
Can you manually and easily/intuitively program scenes and chases with moving heads?
What is the gist of SoundSwitch? Does it allow you to populate songs with lighting scene "tags"? Does it do this automatically or do you basically program each song?

Have test it on my Win XP SP3 Notebook,Win 7 Netbook and Win8.1 Tablet,but Not of this Start the Programm.
Think you must have a good PC / Notebook with Maximum System and I3,I5 or I7 Chip on this.
When i have one than i test it New.
But for the Future:
(Inmusic) Denon DJ have buy Soundswitch,let See what Come in the Future by this Deal.
Some VDJ 8 Pro Infinty User from German Forum use Daslight DVC 4 and some are on test with this.

Personally I find the pricetag to be a little high
Mensajes 4 days ago @ 6:04 am
Hope the Future bring more from Denon/Soundswitch Coporation for the VDJ 8.
Price a little Bit high,but when this works with automated generated lightscenes / macros than all good i think.

For SoundSwitch, I will say that the thought of a custom show is next level in my opinion. Here I'm wanting to simplify, but then I can see a real value for clients and events, especially if I can quickly get the hang of things. I have little desire to go through all of our tracks and create a show for each, but my understanding is that the software will automatically create a show for you, and then you go through and tweak when you want to. If we can get quick at the software, I can see customizing a few special songs for clients and then going through and customizing some of the hot songs, go-to's, and classics. I am not far enough into SoundSwitch to really say a whole lot yet. I think the potential is worth putting a little time into though. Email support has been good I think. We'll see how things go.
What about MyDMX 3.0? Is it intuitive? Is it good? I have it sitting in front of me, but I haven't opened it yet.
