VDJ on MacBook Air
Topic: VDJ on MacBook Air
Has anyone done it?
I'm sure VDJ will be fine but what I'm worried about is the cooling system on the MacBook Air?
I'm concerned that if I get a laptop like this that when the room gets hot the cooling system won't be able to handle it.
This has been a common problem with most laptops I've owned. With or without a cooling pad.

That's good to know. Have you ever noticed the macbook air getting really hot during gigs?

I am using a Mac Book Air (late 2010) for a number of gigs (at least 130). Running VDJ 7.3 on a MB Air is not a problem and I don't use a cooler or similar. The only problem I have is that the keyboard is not illuminated ;D
I have had setups like Denon MC 6000, Traktor Audio 2 with Denon SC 2000, VMS 2 or Denon S 1200 nower days and there have never ever been any problems with my book, neither freezing screens nor any sound misfires.
I hope that it will be helpful for your decision.

Mixing videos is less common in good old germany but in fact it is still a profitable niche - I do not offer this to customers.

Just did my first night on a macbook air. It's 11 inch 1.8ghz i7 with 4gb 1333mhz ddr3 ram and I played six hours off an external usb hdd, videos all night and it didn't miss a beat or get noticeably warm. The only glitch is the video freeze which happens on the macbook pro that I normally use and is easily fixed if a little irksome. I'm well impressed :)
Next step is to dump the denon controller and use an ipad. Very 21st century.

Therefore you shouldn't worry about it. However you should always make sure that master volume on software (VirtualDJ) is always at 100%
