VirtualDJ Setup

Download and install VirtualDJ from https://www.virtualdj.com/download/index.html (in case you have not done already)
Once VirtualDJ is opened, a Connect Window will appear. Login with your account credentials.

A Pro Infinity or a Pro Subscription License is required to use the Pioneer DJM-A9. Without any of the above Licenses, the mixer will operate for 10 minutes each time you restart VirtualDJ.

A Detection window will appear next, to verify the proper detection.

Click on the “DJM-A9” button and VirtualDJ will automatically create and apply the default audio configuration using the built-in audio interface of the Pioneer DJM-A9

Click to OK.

The device is now ready to operate with VirtualDJ.

MIDI Operation

The device should be visible in the Mapping tab of Config and the “factory default” available/selected from the Mappings drop-down list.

Note, that nearly all buttons, knobs and faders of the DJM-A9 offer hardware/firmware/internal functionality, thus it is highly recommenced not to change the assigned actions, as the hardware functionality will still apply. Some of the device's keys are pre-mapped to "fake" mode actions, just as a mixing aid (show status on the GUI).


The device has a pre-defined Audio setup and a special button in the AUDIO tab of Config to provide that. Alternative setups can be applied in the same window. See Advanced Setup

For further software settings please refer to the User Guide of VirtualDJ.
