Forum: Old versions

For older version, like VirtualDJ 7.


NOTE: VirtualDJ 7 is not maintained anymore.
Topic: Subscription?
Hello there community!

I'm prepping for a commercial gig and was looking into the pro version of Virtual DJ, but the subscription thing confuses me.

I only have Virtual DJ LE and Home on my computer, so if I understand this correctly, if I become a subscriber I'll have access to all the features of PRO including controller usage? Or do I have to purchase Virtual DJ Pro AND subscribe? Thanks guys!

You are correct. The subscription unlocks VDJ 8 to pro level at the monthly fee.

Alright, thanks for the quick response! I was worried that I would have to start dishing out tons of money to get going and not even have tried the full version of the software with my deck. Relieved!

I recently had the free version of virtual DJ and purchased a Numark mixtrack edge controller. When I try to purchase an upgrade with this controller it is telling me that it is not available for this release. I do not want to purchase the pro version. Can anyone tell me what my options are?

You can purchase a controller only license for $99 for the Numark MT Edge.

You just need to select the controller in the drop down box on the right.

This version is a limited version and will allow you to only use that controller. So if you update it at a later date then you will need to purchase another license.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for your response. I have tried that and this is the message that I am getting.

"VirtualDJ 8 Per-Controller Licenses are not available yet during the Pre-Release period.
They will be available to purchase as soon as VirtualDJ 8 is officially released.

In the mean-time, if your controller comes with a LE version, you can benefit from our time-limited upgrade offer.?

Could you please advise what direction I should go next?

THanks!

In this case you will need to wait until the Full Release.

We don't have a timescale for this at the moment.

In the mean time, if you have not already done so you can download the Home Version of 7.4. This will allow you to test your controller at 10minute intervals (after a restart). There will be an announcement on the site when it officially goes live so that you can purchase your controller license.

Well it seem's to me that the vdj8 subscription version doesn't give you all the features of the pro. Video mixing is set to only small screen's i'm wandering why?

You're doing something wrong, even as a Home user you can have full screen video output. Check the manual.

Yes, that is the full version - you just subscribe to it instead of paying for it all at once.
So basically you are renting it instead of buying it

There are only 2 "limitations" I can think of:
- You can't use the older v7 with it, since that doesn't support a subscription license. So only v8
- You need your laptop to be connect to the internet at least once a month while opening the software, so that it can validate that you are still subscribing to the software

Of course after about 15 months of subscribing, it would been cheaper to buy it as a one time purchase.
And you can't convert your 15 months into a one time purchase, even after passing the 15 months / $299 mark
So that's something to consider
