Click on the Use Soundcard button to allow VirtualDJ to auto-create the pre-defined audio configuration.
Click to OK
The unit is now ready to operate.
The unit should be visible in the CONTROLLERS tab of Config and the “factory default” available/selected from the Mappings drop-down list. The factory default Mapping offers the functions described in this Manual, however those can be adjusted to your needs via VDJ Script actions.
