SoundSwitch, the software / hardware solution that syncs DMX lighting with DJ software, just received a huge update that grants it compatibility with Virtual DJ 8. Now at version 1.5, it lets Virtual DJ 8 users create their own custom lighting effects when running the SoundSwitch app in tandem with Virtual DJ 8 and using light fixtures connected to the SoundSwitch hardware box.
Previously, SoundSwitch only worked with Serato DJ. Adding Virtual DJ 8 to its compatibility list will open up the product to even more users, particularly mobile and professional DJs who are one of the fiercest Virtual DJ supporters. Coincidentally, it’s these mobile / pro jocks who stand to benefit the most from the customised light show promise of SoundSwitch. We can’t wait to try it – watch out for our review of SoundSwitch soon.
• SoundSwitch 1.5 is now available. Check the SoundSwitch site for more details.
