I'm switching from Traktor Dj and Serato to VDJ 2020. Don't really care about stems but I need one software where I can run music, video, slideshow, DMX, effects, etc. and more. Finally
I'm sort of in the same boat .. music, video, karaoke .. and stability. PCDJ Dex does it, but it has some issues.

I will still keep Traktor but they are way behind. Refusing to accommodate video was a big mistake. Another year and they wiil be a niche software.

I bought Traktor .. just didn't fit me. Same with Serato .. both usable, but looking for something less club-focused and more universal.

What's amazing is when I first got started in 81 I could never have imaged we would be able to DJ the way we do today.

Mix,

When are you going live to explain the PLANDEMIC to everyone on Facebook. You said you were going to do it, so what’s taking so long.

Also, when are you going to do another live video of you mixing?
I have a possibility to do an event on Zoom on NYE. I have to go on a Zoom meeting on Saturday to find out if I will be the DJ they will be using. If so I just have to find out how to do it. My friend has done it. So I will need him to show me how to do it.

I gave up on Facebook because I got tired of being kicked off for one reason or another. It for me became a PITA.

What about the PLANDEMIC talk? That’s the important thing. I’m sure that people need some great guidance through these trying times. If you have answers to what we are dealing with, you should be sharing the answers.

Facebook won’t pull a video like that down.

If you do the video don’t forget to havE SNOT RAGS with you.

Zoom could be the worst thing to DJ on, People on the other end will never hear you because Zoom controls the audio so it doesn't get loud. the music will get muted,

Thanks Mr. That's what the event is on. So I have no control about that. Not trying to funny. Have you been on Zoom? I have been on there for meetings lots of times and frankly I'm tired of having meetings on Zoom. I have commitments that I must be on there. If it wasn't for that I would only be on Zoom twice a month and that's it.

Mixy very well aware of what Zoom is. hence why I can tell you that trying to do an online event with a DJ is a horrible experience.

It is possible to disable to the auto-leveling so that you don't get that effect when DJing.

Only if you are the host and even then ti doesn't always work. Unless they made changes in the last 2 months it was never a good experience.
That's probably true. I was running it in webinar mode, so I had a lot more control over other users and the experience as a whole. For anyone trying to use Zoom for DJ purposes, that would be my recommendation.
