Sujet Continuous Play, Deck To Deck, Automatic?
ib4jamnHome userMember since 2011
New to VDJ7. Wanting to load tracks onto all decks and have them play continuously one after the other, automatically. Is it possible to set the decks to play pre-loaded songs without my mixing them? If so, what would the macro be? I am still learning and have just set my first macro (mix_now_nosync), and love the auto mix function; however, I am looking to set the decks to continually play if I need to step away. Please help. Thanx

The first thing to do is read the manual !

What you need is automix. Drag n drop any files you need to the right side of the browser (playlist window). Then activate the Automix mode..

if you cant see your playlist move your mouse to the rightuntill it pops out. then in the bottom left of the playlist window theres a padloock button that locks it in place so it doesnt auto hide again.

it may take a couple of attempts before you get it locked down as it closes pretty quick. it took me about 5 goes.

There is a comand relay_play which will play from one deck to the next (in 2 deck mode) but I havn't worked out how to get PCDJ to load the next track from a play list.

You are probably better of using the auto mix in one of its modes - auto mix, fade out/in or back to back. One word of warning though you always get a tiny gap between tracks either in back to back play or relay play. If you want absolutely gapless play you will need to the auto mix option with the fade in out option or auto mix.

If anyone knows how to get relay_play to load the next track unsing codes or how to remove the tiny gap please post it.

Hope this is what you want.

I've downloaded the home version and I have the playlist option showing and can choose Automix? Is it a different version that you're referencing?

Yes.

DJ Dad clearly stated that the LE versions don't have the playlist feature.

You've stated that you downloaded the Home version.

New to VDJ, I was wondering if there is a way where the next song in my playlist will automatically load onto the deck but NOT start playing until I hit the play button. (I hope that kind a makes sense)

Makes sense but no, not possible automatically, double clicking on a track loads it to a deck, or you can keyboard/controller map it.

Since you're in front of the PC/Mac, you can do it this way.

Set a keyboard mapping for Automix_Skip (this is active only when your AUTOMIX is enabled)

So when you want the next song to play from the playlist, just press this Mapping and off you go.

Can I use Virtual DJ without having any decks, and just mix and play the music of my apple mac?

Posté Thu 19 Nov 15 @ 6:50 pm
ITunes will do that.
