Virtual DJ 8 Beta – out now

Virtual DJ 8 beta

It does seem like a dog’s age that we’ve been talking about Virtual DJ 8. Indeed, in recent times we’ve talked of it in imminent tones. But for imminent, read now for the first semi-public beta of Virtual DJ 8 is available to download today.

I say semi-public as it’s only available to registered pro users right now, but I expect that the Virtual DJ team hope that after such an extensive rebuild and private beta test period, the showstopping bugs should be nailed leaving a few straggling annoyances. Time will tell on that one.

I know that they’re as keen as mustard to get over the release wall and have it in the hands of everyone, but there’s little point fully releasing a buggy crippled product. That would just undo all the hard work that we know has happened but won’t be apparent on the surface. So if you’re a Virtual DJ 8 pro customer, grab the beta and give it a thorough beating to help the developers hone this long-awaited release to perfection.
