Atomix has released its own brand of timecode vinyl over the weekend. Dubbed “Timecode Vinyl v8”, this control vinyl is designed to be used with Virtual DJ 8.
Although Virtual DJ 8’s DVS functionality works with practically any brand of timecode vinyl out on the market today (whether it’s from Native Instruments, Serato, Mixvibes, etc), as well as any audio interface and DJ controller that has a phono / line input, Atomix is making a statement of commitment to the capabilities and quality of Virtual DJ 8’s DVS engine by reintroducing its own control vinyl.
It was easy for critics to see the company as “piggybacking” on the hardware and DVS technology of the aforementioned manufacturers because of VDJ8’s multi-platform compatibility, but now that Atomix has come out with its set of timecode, that issue can finally be put to rest.
• Timecode Vinyl v8 for Virtual DJ 8 is available now for US$9.99 at the Virtual DJ website.
