    Yeah, and the new Virtual DJ 7 isnt bad at all!:cool:

    i searched the whole web but cant find any mappings for VDJ and the S4...:(

    weird because always when new controllers come out someone does mappings for all types of softwares... maybe the S4 is too hard to map? :S

    But im sure that sooner or later we will find somethin...

    Weird? I think it's quite normal actually.

    You have 1000$ Midi controller that works in NHL and you want to use it in Midi Mode in software where it's clearly not designed for. A bit of a shame actually.

    I don't think you will find anyone that will have made a mapping for it in VDJ, because it would be pretty retarded to do so. You have better software & it's already natively mapped out to that, so why would anyone care enough to make a Midi mapping for other software?
    It just wouldn't make sense to me.

    EDIT:

    Apparently ReThink did do that, but I still wonder why actually...

    do people actually use that?
    Cause if you are serious about that, there are better pieces of software out there.

    Oh well

    I'll go further......why in the world would someone want to run the S4 with the crappy, toyish looking and clearly inferior than Traktor pro, VDJ?

    Having upgraded to Traktor last year after about 6 years of VDJ with a DAC3, I look back wondering how I didnt see what I was missing!

    But scratching video's was always a bit of fun though! Benassi's 'Satisfaction' was my favorite in scratch mode :lol:

    You are really fanboys arent you? Traktor can learn ALOT of stuff from virtual dj...
    Take like the search engine of VJ... Unbeatable.

    And before you ask i dj with traktor...

    Because it was designed to do so via MIDI mode.

    On paper, VDJ is superior to TP:

    * 99 decks
    * Video
    * Effect plugins
    * Skinnable UI

    I prefer TPv2, but you guys shouldn't knock competitors when their product has more features...

    Ok... let's say that we're not competent enough... then name one serious dj using VDJ for mixing?
    I'm not hateful it's just my opinion. :p

    ^ All DJ apps have great DJs using them.

    Again, I'm not a VDJ user, but there are quite a lot of DJs who use it... specifically for the ability to mix video.
