I am installing VDJ Pro on a back-up system, which will be used with the Denon MC6000 in the event the primary computer stops working. I do NOT use the ASIO drivers. Do I need to install any USB drivers to new computer prior to connecting the Denon for the first time? Or will the Denon be recognized when I plug it in?

You should not have to install any drivers, that being said, if you are using windows who knows what you may need to do. Why no ASIO?

Thanks.

No ASIO drivers because it causes massive distortion in my output as many have experienced. I'm using a newer Sony i7 with plenty of resources, and yes - I've done all the tweaks and checklists.

No, you don't need to load anything. The MC-6000 will be recognized by Windows and load the WDM sound drivers automatically.

I agree with you on Denon Asio, it's horrible and I don't use those drivers either.

Ok I think same Asio drivers cause distortion.. My headphone after one hour of playing sound shit. What are the steps to use Wdm drivers? One more thing. If you use WMD drivers. You still use the denon mixer output? As normal

VDJ Config > Sound setup tab

Inputs: None
Outputs: External Mixer
Sound card: 4.1 card

1st dropdown: Deck 1: front output / Deck 2: rear output
2nd dropdown: Denon MC6000

Hit apply

Go to the VDJ Config> Performances tab

Change latency to 512 (11ms) then restart VDJ.

This is for 2 deck external mode only!

I have no issues with the Denon ASIO drivers. Definitely no distortion.

I treated myself to a new lappy at christmas and use asio driver. My sound is crystal clear. Best sound I have ever had actually. Must be a hit and miss thing as I couldnt get asio to work on my older lappy without sound distortion
