Apply VST effects...
Topic: Apply VST effects to microphone only in VDJ 2021
Posted Sun 28 Jun 20 @ 9:02 pm
1) Mic effect pad page: http://www.virtualdj.com/plugins/index.html?category=pads&search=mic+fx
2) Use a skin that offers microphone effects like: http://www.virtualdj.com/plugins/index.html?category=skins&search=blacksheep+pro (being one example)

Unfortunately VDJ does not allow use of VSTs from the standard system VST folder, like other VST capable software.
Also they will need to be 64 bit VSTs. There's no bridge in VDJ.
Finally if they're VSTs that are bundled with Cubase then I think you'll find they won't work in other software.

No need of script for pad editor to get the effects to trigger on and off:
select effect using FX SEL (PAD 5)
activate/desactivate it using the pad with its name (PAD 1)
you can open GUI using PAD 4
you can adjust 2 parameters using the parameters arrows
and for not VST effects :
you can enable 3 buttons using PAD 6 7 8

It shows MicFX in Pad 1
Effect GUI shows up in pad 4
Effect is selected in Pad 5
When I go into the GUI and make adjustments, they do not change the sound, and it appears to not be getting any signal so I don't think the FX are "on"
but i cant get Mic FX to toggle on and off in pad 1.
Pads two and three show arrows that toggle things like "Stop on End" "Lock" "Shape" "Reset Phase" etc. don't know what they are...
Also, I think if I want to use two effects together (eq and compression) I would need to assign the second effect in the deck 2 pad section?
I appreaciate all the help so far - almost there!

it is important a mic being handled by VDJ in a way to be able to apply FX
mic effects only work with a mic input configured in the audio settings
pad2 and 3 select previous and next effect in the list
right strings "Par.1:..." and "Par.2:... are control slider1 and slider2 from the effect gui
pads 6 7 8 are control buttons 1 2 3 from the effect gui
effects can be chained (on as long as they are not set off)
the little switch in left of fx name in selection popup can toggle fx on(green) or off(gray)
(take care the order they are switch on)
It's not possible to have 2 different effects in pads on different decks as the pad is specific to 'Mic' deck

One more issue: VDJ is not saving any layout/rack settings and the FX are needing to reset each time I open the program. I have read online about enabling permissions, but all of them are enabled. I checked multiple times. Is there anyway that I can save all of my settings for the next time I boot up?
You guys are the best! Thanks again.
