Master Tempo

Q. How do I change the speed/tempo of the song without changing its pitch?

VirtualDJ uses Master Tempo (also known as Keylock) to keep the songs key when making tempo/pitch changes. This is to maintain the song's integrity and avoid high and low pitched alterations of the tracks key and vocals. Master Tempo is on by default.

If you find that the key of the song is changing when making tempo alterations, you may have disabled Master Tempo accidentally. To fix this go to the Deck Options button beside the transport controls on either deck, click on it and make sure Master Tempo is checked.
