Helpful Hints, Tips & Tricks / Re: virtual dj studio 2015
« on: November 27, 2018, 06:16:35 AM »
Hi there,
this isn't as uncommon as you might think and the solution "might" be that your PC isn't seeing your external hard drive as the same drive letter as it did before.

If you have more than one USB peripheral plugged in, then the allocated drive letter changes depending on the order they are fitted.

You can "force" your PC to "see" your external drive as a specific drive letter fairly easily (just Google it) and if that's what's causing your problem, it should just go away.

Hi Fabio,
once again thanks are due for your detailed explanation above.

I have now shown VDJS to a few of my fellow KJ/DJ's and sadly, the comments are universal.

"Great program, shame about the Playlist".

Just a thought but earlier versions of the software had only TWO tabs above the search display window, while later ones have FOUR.

How possible would it be to transfer the Playlist file window down to this much larger box and provide a "Playlist" Tab?

Leave the controls, etc where they are but would this not allow for a much larger font for the file names?

Any thoughts?

Sandy.

Hi Fabio,
the very prompt reply is much appreciated.

FLAC is useful in this day and age as huge hard drives are pretty much the norm and to be honest, once pub patrons get their "beer ears" on, MP3's at 128kbs and FLAC wouldn't make a difference.

I have a couple of converters that I use regularly, namely Emicsoft Total Media Converter (ETMC) and Pavtube Video Converter (PVC).

I basically dedicate ETMC to audio conversion and PVC to video. Saves me changing settings all the time.

Back to time functions.

Karma is a seriously good Karaoke program that "can" play audio files but there are several issues with it.

First, it is processor hungry, so a fast PC or Laptop is needed.
Second, it "must" be connected to the WEB to install it
Third, it requires the Microsoft .NET framework to install

While I regard it as the best Karaoke software I've yet found, VDJ is by far easier to install and run on even a fairly basic machine. Kudos to the software writer.

Karma, however has a cumulative queue timer that totals the remaining songlist run time and lets me make known that "No more singers" can be added to the queue at the end of the function.

Is there a method to see, or impliment this?

Againh, thanks for the quick reply to my first post.

Sandy.

Hi again,
OK galloping senility aside, I solved the time remaining problem for the playlist by simply trying obvious options.

Right click anywhere in the Playist Window and an option box pops up including time remaining.

Duh!!!

Hi there,
my first post, so I think a short intro might be an idea.

Name is Sandy
Age is 66
Location in Scotland.
Retired Electronics Technician with a major Comms company.

Previous Karaoke programs include Winamp with various addons (terrible)
Sax'n Dotties (pretty bad as well)
Virtual DJ Pro (does the job but is silly expensive)
Various free programs supplied by Karaoke song providers.
Just Karaoke (Excellent for price and ability)
Karaosoft Karma (best of the lot but resource hungry)

I downloaded Virtual DJ studio and was surprised at how impressed I was with it.

However, I do have some, hopefully solveable, questions.

1) If there is a remaining song time remaining display, I can't find it, either for playlist or Karaoke songs in the request list.
2) Some MP3's simply won't play, either in playlist or lines. However, if I take the kbs down from 320 to 192kbs, all is OK.
3) No FLAC file capability.
4) My 66 year old eyes struggle to read the tiny font in the playlist.

For 4) above, I would cheerfully give up 3 or 4 channel lines to get a wider and hopefully easier to read playlist window.

The one thing that convinced me to try out VDJ Studio was the massive improvement in database logging.

I hope you can find some time to address my points above.
