Q. My SYNC button isn't working. When I press it, nothing happens

When using more than two decks, the SYNC button will synchronise with the deck that is currently set as the master deck.

If this is not set correctly (E.g: To a deck with no song loaded or the song is not playing), then the SYNC button will not work or may synchronise to the wrong BPM.

To set the master deck, make sure that you are using the default VirtualDJ 4 deck skin and then click on the word MASTER of the appropriate deck (The one that is playing live) so that it is lit up orange.

If you are using a MIDI controller, this may also have a button to set the master deck. This is usually labelled MASTER and in some cases may be a secondary SHIFT function (Usually on the SYNC button.)

If the master deck is set correctly and you find that the song still doesn't synchronise properly, please see: When I press SYNC the two songs do not beat match perfectly with each other.

NOTE: VirtualDJ will normally automatically set the master deck as you load songs providing that the Auto Headphones option in CONFIG -> Options is enabled.

NOTE: Sync will only work if there is sufficient pitch range available to adjust the BPM of the song to match. To match songs with larger differences, you may need to increase the pitch range appropriately (E.g; If you are using 8%, try increasing it to 16%.)
