- Login or create an account on the right side of the page.
- If you already own a copy of Virtual DJ, a download link will be available in your account (If you have not purchased a license, you can purchase it here).
- Download, install and open Virtual DJ (make sure that you've unlocked it, too! The Mixtrack Platinum will not unlock the software)
- Connect the Mixtrack Platinum to the computer with the supplied USB cable, and connect the RCA cable from the master output to your speakers. You can also connect your headphones to the front of the device with either 1/4" or 1/8" input.
- Virtual DJ will recognize the Mixtrack Platinum and you will see the following prompt:
- Click on Use Soundcard and this will assign the Mixtrack Platinum as the audio output device for the software.
- Click OK
Assigning the Controller and Outputs
Start by selecting the Gear icon in the top right corner (PC) or left corner (Mac) to open the Settings/Preferences window.
- Select Controllers in the left hand column.
- Choose the Mixtrack Platinum from the list to assign it as your default hardware controller.
- Next, select AUDIO in the upper left hand column.
- Choose SPEAKER + HEADPHONE under the OUTPUT column.
- Choose the NUMARK MIXTRACK PLATINUM under the CARD column if not already selected. This tells the software to send all audio out to your Mixtrack Platinum.
