SETUP


Firmware & Drivers


Firmware
Update the firmware of the unit to the latest version, following instructions provided at:
Gemini GMX: http://geminisound.com/product/gmx (Downloads tab)
Gemini GMX DRIVE: http://geminisound.com/product/gmx-drive (Downloads tab)

Drivers
Windows: Download and install the latest ASIO drivers from:
Gemini GMX: http://geminisound.com/product/gmx (Downloads tab)

Mac OSX. No drivers are necessary to install for Mac computers. The Operating system will use its own audio drivers when the unit is connected to the USB port.

Connections
Connect the Gemini GMX to a USB port of your computer. Plug a pair of amplified speakers to the rear Master Output of the unit and your Headphones to the front socket. Connect the provided AC/DC power adaptor. Power on the unit once all the connections are done.

VirtualDJ 8 Setup


Download and install VirtualDJ 8 from http://www.virtualdj.com/download/index.html (in case you have not done already)

If your unit came with VirtualDJ LE, use the provided CD (or download from http://www.virtualdj.com/le ) to install VirtualDJ (will install the custom LE skin along with the application)

Once VirtualDJ 8 is launched, a Login Window will appear. Login with your virtualdj.com account credentials.

A Pro Infinity, a PLUS, a Subscription License or a VirtualDJ LE Keycode (serial) is required to use the Gemini GMX/GMX DRIVE. Without any of the above Licenses, the controller will operate for 10 minutes each time you restart VirtualDJ 8.

A detection window will appear next asking to use or not the pre-defined audio setup with the built-in sound card of the Gemini GMX. You can still change that from Settings->AUDIO tab.
Click on the Use Soundcard button if you have followed the connections as above.

If your GMX came with a VirtualDJ LE Keycode, use the Enter Keycode button you will see in the detection window to enter it. If a Pro Infinity or Plus license is available and you have logged in the previous window, this button will not be available.

Click OK


INTERFACE (Skin)


The tailored skin of the Gemini GMX, which is automatically loaded with VirtualDJ 8 LE version, is also available for download at http://www.virtualdj.com/plugins/ for those who do not wish to install the LE version from the provided CD.


The unit is now ready to operate.


Advanced Setup



MIDI Operation
The unit should be visible in the CONTROLLERS tab of Config and the “factory default” available/selected from the Mappings drop-down list.
The factory default Mapping offers the functions described in this Manual, however those can be adjusted to your needs via VDJ Script actions.

A Pro Infinity, a PLUS or a Subscription license is required to customize the mapping of the GMX (the CONTROLLERS tab will not be available in LE mode).

Find more details at http://www.virtualdj.com/wiki/VDJ8script.html


AUDIO Setup
The unit has a pre-defined Audio setup and a special button in the AUDIO tab of Config to provide that. Alternative Audio setups can be applied in the same window in case a different sound card other than the built-in of the GMX needs to be used.
