Just as CD players used by DJs have more options than traditional Hi-Fi CD players, VirtualDJ has more features than standard media players like iTunes. It allows you to “shuffle” songs, play two or more songs at the same time, adjust their relative speed to match their tempo, apply effects like a loop, etc., and switch from page to page. It also lets you pour songs, set and restore reminders, as well as all the other common features DJs expect to be able to mix.
It allows you to organize and easily group your song collection in a DJ-friendly way using a filter to find hot songs or find compatible bpm or keys, access your previous playlists, etc. And if a song is missing, VirtualDJ will automatically find it on the Internet and stream it directly (* requires additional subscription). And by using the millions of automated reports we receive daily from other VirtualDJ users around the world, it gives you meaningful advice on which songs other DJs think are great after you just played.
In addition to audio, VirtualDJ can also play videos or karaoke if you connect your computer to a projector or club screen.

And if you combine videos, you’ll also find lots of video effects and transitions to play with. Its built-in sampling mode lets you taste mixes with many drops and loops, or you can creatively combine live performance and production by creating remixes on the go using a sampler-like sequencer.
