Scratch, mix and control your music…live!
Virtual Vinyl is the digital vinyl system for DJs who love the feel of 12-inch vinyl or CD decks and the flexibility and creative possibility of mixing audio and video. This is high-performance, no-nonsense power thanks to Virtual Vinyl’s marriage of control vinyl on your turntables of choice and Cue software. Just load tracks from your virtual crates to the software decks and cue, mix, and scratch on your turntables or CD players of choice. Virtual Vinyl includes everything you need to get started: two timecode vinyls, two timecode CDs, the Virtual Vinyl interface box, and Cue software, and all the cables you need to make it work.
You’re the DJ. That means you’re in control of the vibe, the energy, the heads and hips on the dance floor. So why not be in control of your rig? Virtual Vinyl is the perfect system for DJs who like to be in the driver’s seat. You can use the Virtual Vinyl system with virtually any turntables or CD decks – one or two. Plus, you can use it with your choice of Mac or PC, and you can even customize the actual appearance, layout, and feel of the software to suit your needs, taste, and style.
