Numark NV virtualDJ 8 VDJ mapping (2)

Seems that there’s no stopping Atomix. Hellbent on making VirtualDJ 8 work with anything with a USB port, they’ve now gone and managed something that we speculated might not happen. When we first saw the Numark NV (review here) during a Skype conversation with Numark, one of the first questions I asked was about mapping and screen use. I did get a very corporate response along the lines of “it’s designed explicitly for Serato DJ but there are some clever people out there who may well work out how to do it”. And now someone has, as VirtualDJ8 works with the Numark NV, screens included.

A brief email exchange confirmed that mapping was easy, but info about the screens definitely wasn’t forthcoming so Atomix worked it out for themselves. It would appear that much of the visual elements are stored on the NV itself, so the screens will still resemble the Serato DJ ones, but with info fed directly from VDJ.

VirtualDJ seems to be on a rampage right now, and largely succeeding. Having pulled off this seemingly impossible feat, I wonder if we’ll see Traktor hardware get the VDJ treatment? Want some of this VDJ action inside your Kontrol S8?

Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
