What's New in Virtual DJ Studio

Below is a list of new features added to the most recent versions of Virtual DJ Studio. Download Now

New Video Series

We've started a video series on how to get the most out of Virtual DJ & Karaoke Studio - see the How-To Page for details.

Version 8.1.1

Release: March 26, 2020

This version fixes problems with Windows 7. Previous versions did not run on Windows 7 due to a minor issue. This update is only recommended if you are running less than VDJ 8.1 or are wanting to install on a Windows 7 machine.

Version 8.1

Release: March 11, 2020

This version adds many new features and stability improvements. Most notable are:
  • ID3 v1 and v2 Tag Support
  • Album Art Display on Video Screen
ID3 tags can now be edited in any MP3 file - even those within ZIP files! This includes the ability to add the Album Cover, which shows on the Video Screen when playing that file.



Note that Album Art can only be shown if you are not showing Upcoming Singers as a text list.



Many stability improvements have been made, and this is by far the most rock-solid version yet! If you already have a license for 8.0 this upgrade is free.

If you have already used your 14-day free trial, Version 8.1 lets you start a new Free Trial - so be sure to check it out and see if it meets your DJ, KJ and VJ hosting needs!

Version 8.0.8

Release: February 17, 2020

The Preview area now shows video at full frame-rate when the Full-Screen window is hidden. This allows you to use without an external monitor and view videos as they should look within the Preview area.

Also some minor fixes to the App Server component where, occasionally, if you were on a slow or unreliable connection, the program could freeze unexpectedly.

Version 8.0.7

Release: February 11, 2020

We've change the "official" name to Virtual DJ & Karaoke Studio to help differentiate between competing products.

This update adds more improvements, including indexing the Duration of ZIP files (for CDG+MP3). It is recommended to perform a Reindex after this update, though this is not required.

Other minor performance improvements have been made internally.

Version 8.0.6

Release: February 9, 2020

Building upon the major 8.0.0 release on the first of the month, 8.0.6 adds many small fixes and improvements. At this point, Virtual DJ Studio 8 is considered to be rock-solid and stable, so be sure to upgrade if you are using any previous 8.x version. This update is free if you bought an 8.x license, and will not change any of your settings by installing it over the existing version.

Most notable changes include:
  • FIX: Fade Out & Stop feature works better
  • Improvement: You can now show a List of upcoming singers along-side Pictures
  • Improvement: Ability to place the countdown timer in any corner of the Video Screen
  • Improvement: Ability to treat all Video files the same way as CDG/ZIP files
That last improvement simply lets a Video File have a "Singer Name" at the top of the line, and carries the Singer and Key along with it when drag and dropping the file from one place to another.

There are other improvements internally that make this the most stable 8.x version yet! New features are coming all the time, so stay tuned...

Version 8.0.0

Release: February 1, 2020

Video support, plus support for more Audio formats as well. Currently supports:
  • Video:
    • AVI
    • WMV
    • MP4
    • MPG
    • FLV
    • M4V
  • Audio:
    • MP3
    • WAV
    • WMA
    • AC3
    • AAC
    • FLAC
More format support may come in the near future. As always, this version fully supports CDG ZIP files for Karaoke playback.

Seamlessly play Audio, Video, and CDG files in the Playlist Player for hours of entertainment!

Many, many more major improvemetns overall in this all-new edition. You can use a Video Loop as the Karaoke background, or if you choose, a webcam. You can show the audience/crowd, the person singing, or yourself! Whatever you like behind the graphics - the possibilities are endless!

More information coming soon...

Version 7.8.5

Release: December 15, 2017

Fixed incorrect QR code being generated for the Karaoke Screen.

Version 7.8.4

Release: December 4, 2017

Fixed a bug where a filename in an .M3U playlist file containing a # symbol was disregarded as a comment line, among other minor internal fixes.

Version 7.8.3

Release: September 3, 2017

This is a bugfix version. If some of your Karaoke ZIP files weren't opening correctly in the last couple of releases, this update should fix the problem.

Version 7.8.2

Release: August 12, 2017

This is a minor bug fix for those having problems with the "Server" button not launching the Server dialog.

Version 7.8.1

Releae: July 13, 2017

This is a minor bug fix release. The master MONO button was not functioning in previous versions, this update fixes that.

Version 7.8.0

Release: June 29, 2017

This update has a few minor bug fixes. Also fixed issues with certain Karaoke files not showing lyrics - specifically karaoke files using "channels" other than channel 0 (zero) wouldn't display without having to navigate through the right-click menu.

In other words, if the lyrics didn't display on some of your Karaoke files, this update should fix that.

Version 7.7.9

Release: June 17, 2017

Additional bug fixes and feature enhancements. You can now sort your Search results by File, Location (Path), or even Duration. More search result columns are coming soon, with more sorting options to go with it. Note that sorting by Full Path (Location column) in descending order - the default setting - is always fastest, as this is the order the music is sorted in the actual database.

Fixes include a potential crash bug after indexing your music database. This has been confirmed fixed, however if you were experiencing this particular issue we strongly encourage that you do a FULL re-index (checking the Completely Reset Index box in the Search Options) to eliminate any corrupted data in the index.

Version 7.7.8

Release: June 7, 2017

LOTS of bug fixes and speed improvements, this version uses less memory, especially if you have a lot of song files indexed.

The indexer is further improved, faster, yet still compatible with the format introduced in 7.7.7 (so upgrading from 7.7.7 to 7.7.8 will NOT require a full re-index).

Version 7.7.7

Release: May 21, 2017

This is a MAJOR upgrade, and is STILL free for all licensed 7.x users! If you tried the free trial before and didn't like it, please give this one another try - it will start your trial over, even if you used up the 14 days on a previous version.

The main improvement is in the Music Database Indexer. It does the indexing in two stages. The first stage takes only minutes, and lets you access your database immediately. The second stage is all done in the background, where it gathers more information about your files in order to provide better search results.

Also new: You can allow your customers to follow-along with the Karaoke Lyrics on their Cell Phone or other device with the MyDjSongBook.com app.

Many other bug fixes and minor improvements are in this new version, so be sure to upgrade to 7.7.7 today!

Version 7.7.6

Release: April 21, 2017

Many bug fixes, especially when indexing lot of ZIP files. Strongly recommended update for all 7.x users.

Also improved response time when using the MyDjSongBook Request App.

Version 7.7.5

Released: April 14, 2017

Many improvements to the new features introduced to 7.7 - if you have any version of 7.7, it is strongly recommended that you update to 7.7.5 for best results.

Verison 7.7.1

Released: April 2, 2017

Major new update with a major new feature: Fully server-hosted Request App. This Eliminates the need for customers to be on the same IP network (WiFi) and provides a secure, feature-filled way for your customers to submit song requests AND profile pictures, right from their own smart phone.

No App installation required - fully web-based.

See our Hosted App Page, or go directly to MyDjSongBook.com for all the details or to subscribe to this all-new service.

Version 7.6.1

Released: January 28, 2017

More issues with the Saved Singers list have been addressed. Specifically, if their saved songs no longer exist, you now have options to locate the song or a similar replacement.

Version 7.6.0

Released: January 13, 2017

Fixed some issues with the Saved Singers list, including handling of profile pictures, non-existent saved songs, and other minor improvements.

Version 7.5.0

Released: December 7th, 2016

Some internal bug fixes and improvements. Most notably, if an error message pops up behind the startup splash screen, the program would appear "frozen" until you could click the invisible message box. This has been fixed.

Version 7.4.1

Released: August 9th, 2016

This update speeds up file indexing somewhat, but mostly adds support for a wider variety of ZIP files, including those using Deflate32 and Deflate64.

In other words, if some of your Karaoke ZIP files do not play in the other versions of Virtual DJ Studio, 7.4.1 should fix that problem.

Version 7.3.2

Released: October 6th, 2015

This update added multiple file deletion, and even more improved configuration wizard for new users, along with a few minor bug fixes.

Version 7.3.1

Released: October 5th, 2015

This update provides more intuitive search indexing options, and an improved Configuration Wizard for first-time users.

Version 7.2.4

Released: September 29th, 2015

We have fixed a few very minor bugs, and added one new feature: You can now select certain folders that will automatically reindex every time you start VDJ.

This is handy for a Downloads or New Songs folder, so that you don't have to reindex your entire library when you add new songs.

See the Options dialog from the Search window for details.

Version 7.2.3

Released: September 26th, 2015

We have added a few new features to the 7.x series. Most notably is the Auto-Complete feature when you add a song to the Karaoke Queue.

By default, whenever you add a song and label the singer's name, that singer and their song are automatically added to the Saved Singers list. As you type the singer's name in the Queue, the saved singers names matching what you type pop up, along with their profile picture:

Popout showing All Saved Singers


Narrows Down as you Type


You can choose not to show the profile pictures, and other options by clicking the Options button on the right-side of the Karaoke Queue tab, or choosing Karaoke Options in the Program Options dialog.

File Rename/Delete
You can now rename or delete files directly from within the Search Results. This affects the file on the filesystem as well as in the database. Simply press F2 to Rename a file, or press DEL to delete it. You can also right-click for more options.
