Topic: [NEW] VirtualDJ 7.3 - Page: 1
sclavelPRO InfinityCEOMember since 1996
As we said before, VirtualDJ 8 is still under beta-testing, and we’ll keep it that way until we’re confident that we nailed every single one of the numerous small bugs that are the unavoidable byproducts of a complete rewrite.
VirtualDJ 7 is a rock-solid piece of software, that is used daily by dozen of millions of DJs around the world without a glitch, and we strongly believe that VirtualDJ 8 should have the same stability. The new features in v8, no matter how groundbreaking, do not justify a loss in stability.
So we’ll continue to whip the new development team until v8 is perfect.

And as we promised, in the meantime, we’ll continue to release improvements on the v7.x series, and port back some of the new features that had been developed for v8.

So here comes VirtualDJ version 7.3:

The focus on this new update is mainly the sound quality.
We’ve improved the audio engine, using 32-bit internal processing, we added an automatic Limiter, an optional new Parametric Equalizer with customizable frequencies, and in general ported back from v8 some new improvements that make VirtualDJ sound better.
VirtualDJ 8 will sound even better, but 7.3 is already a noticeable improvement over the previous versions.

We also ported back from v8 the multi-word search engine.
If you search for “Guetta Love”, the search engine will now show all the results that contain both the word “Guetta” in one of the fields and the word “Love” in the same or any other field. (unlike v7.2 and previous, where it would have shown only files matching the exact string “Guetta{space}Love”).
If you want to search for an exact string with spaces, just include it between double-quotes when you type it in the search field.

And as usual we added native support for the latest and newest controllers that will hit the market soon, and we fixed a few small bugs that had been reported.


As always, version 7.3 is free for all registered Broadcaster/Pro Basic/Pro Full users.
You can download the new installer from your download Center.

Full change log is here.

Well done guys, I've always thought the searching system on vdj was a huge downfall. Glad you've addressed this.

To prevent distortion of your audio, when you turn up the gains (or eq's)

thanks for the new update...

i was just wondering if the new sound improvement will make a difference with controllers that are digital/analogue like the vms4
or will it just be an improvement for those that the software itself dose the mixing???

the multi-word search engine will be a big help ;)

Thanks for thses useful updates! I had the loop drop out on me twice last night :( hopefully this fixes the issue. And the new searching will make a huge difference! Thanks guys

Does it only work on text fields? Doesn't seem to work for the year field at the moment. BPM would be useful too.

For numeric field, you can (since v1.0) write 2010-2012 or 120-130 to search in a range

But if you mean to mix text and numeric (like "guetta 2010"), then yes it's not implemented in v7.3.
It will work in v8, and probably in v7.4

One point that wasn't mentioned in the release info above - those of you suffering the 'loop bug' will be glad to hear that it has been shown the exit :)
