There are various versions of Virtual DJ available, and not all are the correct choice for use with a hardware controller. Please see http://www.virtualdj.com/products/comparison.html for a detailed comparison chart.
To ensure that your Mixtrack Pro and the Virtual DJ software work together correctly, check for updates to the software before you begin. The latest available version can be downloaded by logging into your account at http://www.virtualdj.com/download/updates.html.
The Numark Mixtrack Pro controller includes a built-in audio interface, allowing for both cue preview and performance output. Follow these simple steps and be up and running in a matter of minutes.
Connect the Mixtrack Pro to an available USB port on your computer. For best performance, avoid the use of a USB hub or splitter if at all possible.
For the performance output, connect an RCA cable to OUTPUT 1 on the back of the Mixtrack Pro. Connect the other end of this cable to an available input on a sound system of your choosing.
The volume slider labeled MASTER GAIN, which is located in the center of the mixer section, controls the output level going to the sound system.
Headphones should be plugged into the HEADPHONES input on the front of the controller.
The CUE buttons located just below the equalizer section allow you to select which track is fed to the cue.
Use the CUE GAIN knob to adjust the volume of the headphones, and the CUE MIX knob to blend between the CUE and PGM (performance output) signals.
- Lastly, a dynamic microphone can be connected to the MIC THROUGH input on the front using a 1/4" cable. The MIC GAIN knob allows you to control how much of the microphone signal is sent to OUTPUT 1. Note that this will pass to the performance output only, and is not sent to the computer via USB.
Now that everything is connected, and we understand how the sound is controlled and passed from the hardware, lets make sure the audio is routed to come from the software properly.
- Launch the Virtual DJ software, and select Config or Settings.
- In the following window, select the Sound Setup tab, and choose the following settings.
Outputs: HEADPHONES > Master: Front Output / Headphones: Rear output
Sound Card: 4.1 CARD > MixTrack Pro
- Select Apply, and then OK.
