NEW VERSION 8.2

Atomix Productions is proud to announce a new version of its flagship software VirtualDJ, which brings many important improvements and new features:

In an era where DJ hardware is moving more and more toward a better synergy with DJ software, we redesigned VirtualDJ to be more controller-centric.
As such, the new pad section will fit right at home on most modern controllers, but at the same time brings a versatility and easiness that is the trademark of VirtualDJ.

The audio engine has been improved, and we managed to perfect even more our already top-of-the-line BPM analysis algorithm.
And our acclaimed video engine also saw some significant performance boost with a smarter use of hardware acceleration.

The connected aspect has not been forgotten, with some brand new features like Ask.The.DJ

And of course, the overall stability has been maintained to rock-solid level, with the lowest crash ratio in the industry.
