    Default Time code CD's for CDJ800 MK2's, and compatible software

    Hi there,

    I won't bore you with personal details.

    This jist is I have an old set up. Two vinyl decks and two CDJ800 mk2's. Ran on a DJM800 mixer.

    I've been looking into buying some timecodes with software because I'd like to run my laptop via the mixer or cdjs.

    I haven't got a clue where to begin other than a vague idea of how this works and was wondering if anyone had any expertise in this? I'm skint, probably have a 100 to spend on this project and would like to get some use out of my cdjs.

    Open to suggestions. Even selling the cdjs to maybe invest in some 1000's because i understand you can connect via usb to a laptop unless I'm mistaken.

    Excuse my ignorance here but really blind when it comes to these and have a lot of good music sat on HDD's I'd love to use.

    Thanks for reading and any subsequent help.

    to run a dvs setup, u need to have a soundcard. most of the latest mixers have a soundcard. the DJM800 u have is an old school one and they didnt add soundcards in mixers when that mixer came out. so u will have to set up ur cdjs+DJM in HID mode: https://forums.pioneerdj.com/hc/en-u...DJ-900-s-setup

    u will have to buy rekordbox dj: https://rekordbox.com/en/products/rekordboxdj/

    check out the tutorials here for HID mode setup: https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...x+cdj+djm+hid+

    Hi there, thanks for the reply. A couple of questions ref this please. I'd read last night that cdj800 mk2's are incompatible with DVS and/or things like jog, stop, start functions are reduced/ dont work at all. Finding information on cdj800 mk2's is difficult. Starting to wonder if it's possible. See a few youtube videos claiming they can, without equipment lists and ref material .

    Looking here: https://rekordbox.com/en/support/link.php

    None of my equipment is listed in the compatibility. Is this correct?

    that is correct,

    i wouldnt be surprised about what u found about the cdj800.

    i just saw u can maybe try virtual dj and use ur cdj800s with it: https://www.virtualdj.com/forums/181...rtual_DJ_.html
