Display


NVII's full-color displays provide real-time feedback of the software with different views of each deck. The three available views are 'Performance View 1', 'Performance View 2' and 'Library View'.


Performance View 1
Performance View 2


Library View - Song list
Library View - Folder list

To move to the next view, press the D.VIEW button (44).
Besides the D.VIEW button, the Browser View switches on/off automatically:
Turning the SEL. knob (46) will automatically turn on the Browser View.
After 3 seconds without any operation, Browser View turns off automatically and the display returns on the previously selected Performance View.
Pressing the SEL. knob (46) down to load the selected track on the assigned deck also turns off the Browser View immediately and returns to previously selected Performance View.

Each view shows the current settings of various controls, which you can adjust as described in the following sections:

Performance Views





1Deck: Indicates the number of the currently left/right selected deck of VirtualDJ controlled by the left/right side of the NVII. Press the DECK (46) button to switch between the decks.
2Track Name: Displays the Title of the currently loaded track.
3Artist Name: Displays the Artist of the currently loaded track.
4Track BPM: Displays the original tempo (in beats per minute aka BPM) of the currently loaded track.
5Track Key: Displays the key of the currently loaded track.
6Deck BPM: Displays the current BPM at which the currently loaded track is playing. To adjust this value, move the deck's Pitch Fader. This number is not affected by temporary pitch bends (using the Pitch Bend -/+ buttons or the platter).
7Remaining Time: Displays how much time is left of the currently loaded track. Note that the displayed time is not taking the pitch into account (absolute value), so if the tempo is not the original, the time will differ from the one that is displayed on the Skin. The ring around the virtual platter is a visual representation of this value (the complete circle being the entire track).
8Pitch Value: This is the current setting of the Pitch Fader. To adjust this setting, move the deck's Pitch Fader.
9Pitch Range: Displays the currently selected range of the Pitch Fader. Press the RANGE/KEYLOCK (45) button to adjust the range.
10Loop Pads: The length of each of the 8 Pads in Loop or Roll mode is displayed (depending on the selected Loop Bank). Buttons become blue when the corresponding loop is triggered.
11Track Progress bar: This is the currently loaded track's waveform, which is color-coded according to the frequency of each area: red indicates low (bass) frequencies, green indicated mid-range frequencies, and blue indicates high (treble) frequencies.
In the waveform, hot cue points are represented by triangles at the bottom of the waveform and loop regions are represented by shaded-blue sections.
12Effects Info. Displays the names of the selected Effects and their Parameters, following exactly the functionality described in the Effects section.
13Waveform: This is the currently playing segment of the track's waveform, which will scroll by as the audio play-head moves through the track. The waveform is color-coded according to the frequency of each area: red indicates low (bass) frequencies, green indicated mid-range frequencies, and blue indicates high (treble) frequencies. In the waveform, hot cue points are represented by triangles at the top and bottom of the waveform, and loop regions are represented by shaded-blue sections.
14Auto-Loop: Displays the deck's currently selected auto-loop length (or the length of the triggered Loop Roll). Button becomes blue when a loop or a loop roll is triggered.

Display Options


VirtualDJ provides the ability to adjust various display options, via a special NVII Settings Pads page. While the unit is connected, select the NVII Settings Pad page from any of the 4 available decks using the default VirtualDJ GUI or any other custom skin which has Pads integration. Alternativelly hold the "SLICER" pad mode button for more than 1 sec on any of the four available decks.


NVII Settings Pad Page 1
NVII Settings Pad Page 2

Use the Parameter buttons on VirtualDj GUI or Numark NVII to toggle between the two pages


Using the Pads from either the NVII or the GUI, you can choose to see Title, Title (Remix) or Artist for the 1st column, Artist, Genre, Album or Title for the 2nd column and Key, Harmonic Key or Key Difference on the 3rd column.
Besides the information shown on each column of the NVII browser screen, you can select if you wish the tracks to appear with their defined colors (the colors you set on VirtualDj browser - default behavior) or display their played status. When you select to see the played status of tracks then all unplayed tracks appear white and all played tracks appear red on NVII screens, regardless of their color information. In order to toggle between the two options use the 4th pad on NVII or VirtualDj GUI (regardless of settings page)
Finally you can adjust the zoom of the scratch waveforms that appear on Performance View 2.
Use the bottom 4 pads on the second settings page to select a zoom level that fits your needs (4 levels are possible)
