Does NV work with Virtual DJ, Traktor, and other DJ programs?

NV has been developed from the ground up as an amazing controller for Serato DJ.  Numark and Serato have carefully tuned and mapped each control to create the best possible out-of-the-box user experience with the included Serato DJ software.
 
However, since NV's hardware controls appear to your computer as a generic MIDI device, it can indeed be custom-mapped to any other DJ application that supports user or developer-created custom mapping. 
 
A note about the NV's onboard screens: They were designed expressly for use with Serato DJ.     In most situations, only the knobs and sliders will work with other software applications that can be easily custom mapped to NV.  One notable exception is Virtual DJ, which has managed to figure out a way to send data to the NV screens as of Virtual DJ 8 Build 2174.951. While the graphic elements onscreen will look exactly as they do when the NV is used with Serato, VDJ 8 users are now able to take advantage of the NV’s screens, as well as the rest of its functionality.
 
Users of Virtual DJ will of course need to configure the audio portion to use the NV audio seamlessly.
