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


The unit has a pre-defined Audio setup and a special button in the AUDIO tab of Config to provide that. When the pre-defined audio configuration is selected, speakers need to be connected to the rear Master Output connection (RCA cables) and your Headphones plugged to the rear Headphones socket of the DDJ-SB2.

Alternative Audio setups can be applied in the same window.
