- The Mixer section of Pioneer XDJ-XZ is operating in hardware mode, meaning that audio is mixed from the actual device and not the VirtualDJ mixer. However, all mixer elements are capable of sending MIDI messages and let VirtualDJ know of their positions and see those on the VirtualDJ skin (useful mostly for Video mixing, auto MASTER deck selection etc). For this feature, MIXER MIDI MESSAGES needs to be enabled from XDJ-XZ Utilities (see Advanced Setup)
- STEMS EQ: When MIXER MIDI MESSAGES are enabled from device's Utilities, Stems EQ of VirtualDJ can be applied to middle mixer channels (Decks 1 and 2) by using the outer channels EQ knobs. See https://virtualdj.com/manuals/virtualdj/interface/mixer/audio/index.html#hardwareadvancedeq Case D.
- The type/curve of Equalizer can be changed from XDJ-XZ Utilities (see Advanced Setup)
- The Beat Effects triggered from the XDJ-XZ are hardware. VirtualDJ (software) Effects can still be applied from the GUI or different MIDI device. Both Hardware and Software Effects are post-fader
