VirtualDJ 8 Setup

Once VirtualDJ 8 is launched, a Login Window will appear. Login with your virtualdj.com account.

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

A detection window will appear next verifying proper connection with the XDJ-RX.

Click on the "Use Soundcard" button in order VirtualDJ to apply the pre-defined audio configuration.

Click to OK.

The unit is now ready to operate.

MIDI Operation
