Early Access Software

Get involved with this software as it develops.

Note: This Early Access software is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to use this software in its current state, then you should wait to see if it progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Getting user feedback early on is crucial to creating a robust, intuitive and enjoyable VR DJing experience which is accessible to both professional DJs and beginners alike.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“Vinyl Reality will be in Early Access for anywhere between 6 months to a year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“A primary focus will be making the application more accessible to people who have no prior DJing experience, by adding features that will lower the learning curve, such as BPM displays. The tutorials included with the application will also be improved upon and users will be provided with extra external learning resources.

New environments will be added to the application gradually throughout the Early Access period. Some of these environments will have special features, such as sound responsive light shows and visual effects. The application is currently only compatible with the HTC Vive, but support for other VR platforms is planned.

A roadmap with all the planned features is available on Trello.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All of the DJ equipment is fully functional and users can load their own music, record mixes, or connect the application to their speakers and perform for a live audience.

The application comes with a basic tutorial that explains how to use the application, but doesn’t cover the topic of DJing itself.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the price will be increased gradually as more content is added.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community feedback will be crucial in determining which upcoming features should be prioritized and how they should be implemented. I plan to set up several communication channels through which users can provide feedback, request features or report bugs.”

Update EA v1.0.5 – Streaming Console

Version 1.0.5 of Vinyl Reality is now available.

The goal of this update was to make footage recorded with Vinyl Reality more interesting and engaging for your audience to watch, by enabling you to select different camera perspectives to display on the desktop mirror, while recording or streaming your set.

You can switch between the different cameras by selecting the corresponding pad on the bottom row of the new streaming console. The leftmost pad, conveniently labeled HMD, will display the feed from your headset.

To see what’s possible, be sure to check out this video that was recorded live using the features of the streaming console:

The streaming console also replaces the old audio recorder and adds some extra functionality, including a display which shows the duration and filename of the current recording.

Please note that the record button on the streaming console only records audio and NOT video. To record or stream video footage, it’s recommend to use an external tool like OBS Studio, which is free and easy to setup.

The streaming console is currently only available in the brand new Recording Studio environment, which was designed to be as optimized as possible and should allow you to record your sessions without any performance issues. This environment also includes a screen which displays the feed from the external cameras when they’re activated.

For the next update (1.0.6) I don’t plan to add any new features, but instead I’ll be focusing on improving performance and polishing the content that is already there. This should give me a good foundation to start work on the next major update (1.1.0), which will add a new club environment with interactive light shows and special effects.

Full Release Notes:
  • Added streaming console
  • Added Recording Studio environment
  • Removed old audio recorder
  • Optimized rendering performance

Added support for Windows Mixed Reality

Just released a small update which adds official support for all Windows MR headsets.

This feature was originally planned to be included in update 1.0.5, but I decided to release it separately because the changes required were minimal.

Update 1.0.5 is still scheduled to be released in about two weeks time.

In case anyone encounters an issue while using the application in combination with a Windows MR headset, be sure to post about it in the community hub.
