Once VirtualDJ 8 is launched, a Login Window will appear. Login with your virtualdj.com account credentials.
A Pro Infinity or a Pro Subscription License is required to use the Pioneer DDJ-RR. Without any of the previously mentioned Licenses, the controller will operate for 10 minutes each time you restart VirtualDJ.
Click on the "Use Soundcard" button if your speakers are connected to the Master Output of the DDJ-RR.
The unit is now ready to operate.
The factory default Mapping offers the functions described in this Manual, however those can be adjusted to your needs via VDJ Script actions.
