The best quality is when your source file, internal samplerate, and soundcard, all use the same value. And since you can change the value of the soundcard and of VirtualDJ, but not of the source files, you should set the value that matches most of your files (mp3 are 44100, videos are 48000)

Choose the quality of the algorithm used for the scratching. The bigger the value the better. Default is 8.

cpuMeter
Show in the CPU meter how fast the whole system is running, or how fast the audio subsystem is running.

clockDisplay

songLoadPriority
Lower song load priority to prevent audio drop-outs while loading

experimentalBeatAnalyzer

experimentalSkinEngine
Improve skin rendering performance

experimentalWaveColors

keepBPMonAnalyzerUpdate
When enabled, automatically detected bpm and beat-grid will not be updated when the bpm analyzer has been updated. Only manual re-scan will then update the bpm and phase with the new analyzer.



timecodeMode
Select what to do on needle-drop: relative=do nothing, absolute=use the offset from the beginning of the record, smart=use the distance if the jump is small, map the full length of the record to the full length of the song if the jump is bigger.

timecodeType
Select which timecode type you are using (will be also set automatically during calibration, except for "VirtualDJ7 CD" which needs to be set manually).

timecodeLeadInTime
Move the "start" of the timecode, to skip a section at the beginning of the record if it is damaged from too much use.

timecodeAntiSkip
Prevent the song position to change if the needle slipped to the next or previous grooves (only for vinyl in smart mode). The value is how many grooves maximum the antiSkip will absorb.

timecodeNeedleDropSync
When needle-dropping, wait to be sure of the new position before starting to play.

timecodePitchSliderIgnoreBend
The timecode pitch slider will not move during manual pitch-bend (braking or speeding up the record), but at the expense of a delayed movement of the slider if you make sudden big pitch modifications.

timecodeSilence
Level under which the timecode is considered stopped. Raise this value if you perform in a very noisy or vibration-full environment. Lower this value if you want to perform tricks that require very slow scratches.

timecodeCalibrationVolume
Calculated during calibration, this value is the average volume of your input signal.

timecodeCalibrationPhase
Calculated during calibration, this value checks if your input signal is stereo-inverted, and/or phase-inverted.
