VirtualDJ 8 is macOS High Sierra ready!
VirtualDJ is compatible with the new macOS High Sierra (10.13)

VirtualDJ 8 works great with the new macOS High Sierra and no particular software update is needed for compatibility.


While VirtualDj 8 itself works fine with the new macOS, please make sure your hardware drivers are compatible as well. Check at the hardware manufacturer webpage for their status.


Feel free to comment on successful or problematic hardware below.

Nice job.

And keep the advertisments rolling as long as the rest of the industrie is struggling.

Good thing I don't use the other software. They sent me this email, because I bought a controller with their software.

Be warned , as much as music files might be ok , what I found out is that the new "macOS High Sierra" might not be able to read karaoke files. I do a lot of karaoke and found out the hard way .I have had to go back to the previous operating system for now until the all glitches are sorted out

Not sure why you would say that I'm having no problems playing any karoake zip files. Can you maybe retest or send me a file to check out.

Are there any other applications stalling on your laptop? I have two of the same laptops from the initial launch of the 2016 model and I haven't and any issues with VDJ or any other application. Perhaps re-install High Sierra from a USB key cleanly?

Hello everybody,

i use vdj with an High Sierra partition on my macbook pro (15 mi-2012.)

Processeur : 2,3Ghz Intel Core i7
Memoire : 16Go 1600Mhz DDR3
Nvidia GeForce GT650M 512Mo

My settings is Two Reloop RP7000 1Cdj 2000 and a Djm S9.

I notice that with High Sierra when i use Mp4 files i have left deck on Internal mode and i use right deck with the time code, when i start to scratch, the waveform start to ooching. it stop as soon as i stop to scratch. i've check my skin fps and its at 50.

on the same computer, i use vdj with an Yosemite partition and i don't have this issue.

Can someone help ?

Bonjour à tous,
L'entrée LINE IN de ma console Hercules Universal DJ n'est plus reconnu dans Virtual DJ 8, ni sur mon iMac ni sur mon MacBook Pro depuis la mise à jour vers MAC OS X High Sierra !!!
Quelqu'un aurait-il le même problème ou peut-être la solution ???

Eric S.

I had glitching/flashing unstable screen) when I updated my Mac Pro to Sierra and based on Adion's recommendation I managed to resolve the problem by changing my skin PFS from 30 to 60. Now I have updated to High Sierra and the problem is even worst. I tried moving the PFS to 200 and the screen is still glitching7flashing although in a lesser way. Has anyone experienced this issue and would you have any lead? thanks, Jeff

hey hey gang.....I have a macbook pro/os x 10.9.5 and I am considering upgrading to high sierra. I use the hercules 4-mx with my vdj 8....anyone using the 4-mx in here experiencing any probs with high sierra? vdj have issued a statement regarding compatibility but hercules seems to be a bit slack (or at least I can't get an answer from them)...thanks

Don’t update it, if you can’t find the answer then why even risk it??

I’d just hold off. I haven’t either of my Macbooks yet because really there’s no reason to.

After being a DJ with laptops since 1999, one thing I have learned the hard way is not to dick with things for the hell of it.

If something works properly then just leave it be.

Even now, first thing I do on any laptop I buy (and I have quite a few) is to disable updates and NEVER upgrade the OS. In my experience it always ends in tears.

Some people think newest is best and just can't help themselves.
