How to Set Up A Microphone With Virtual DJ 7 (and the Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2)

I’m just putting this here so I won’t forget it and have to troll the message boards in the future. Hopefully you’ll find it useful as well.

Basically, in Virtual DJ 7, you need to map your mic to a deck or decks in order to use your microphone with Virtual DJ.

Go to Config, Skins, and then choose a four deck skin. I have a big monitor, so I use the 1440x1024 one. Then go to Mappers. I used

deck 3 linein ‘mic’ & deck 4 linein ‘mic’

(replace the curly apostrophes with the straight ones, if you copy/paste) to map the “Scratch” button on my Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2 to enable the mic on both decks, so it doesn’t matter which side the crossfader is at. If you don’t have a controller, you can use another key: “M”, for example.

That ought to be it - let me know if you have any questions. Note: if your mic isn’t working in Windows in general, then it won’t work in Virtual DJ. Make sure to set it up in Windows first, and to test it with the sound recorder program or Audacity, before you start trying to get it to work in Virtual DJ.

It looks like it can be set easily. I have to try again maybe this time I will succeed.

I would like some advice from an electrician approved. I want to install cameras and microphones in my new house. I took this decision because it makes me feel safe.
