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 1 to 2 years.”

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

“After a year in Early Access, the current focus is to further improve the functionality of the application and the DJ equipment. I’ll also focus on expanding the functionality of the SDK, so that users can add all of the application’s features to their own environments.

The tutorials included with the application will also be improved upon and users will be provided with extra external learning resources.

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 is very stable and there are no major bugs.

The application currently includes 3 different environment, including an underground club environment with sound reactive lights and visual effects. User can also create and import their own environments using the Vinyl Reality SDK in combination with the Unity Editor.

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.”

Beta EA v1.1.2 – SteamVR Input

Hi everyone,

I’ve just pushed version EA v1.1.2b1 of Vinyl Reality to the beta branch.

This update implements the new SteamVR input system, which allows you to setup an alternate control scheme for your favorite controllers.

It also enables Windows Mixed Reality users to use both the trackpad and joystick on their controllers to scroll through their record collection or to make precise fader adjustments.

The default controller bindings are identical to the previous version, so if I have done my job correctly you shouldn’t notice any changes, unless you personalize the bindings.

To opt into this beta version, follow these steps:
  • Right click Vinyl Reality in your Steam library
  • Select Properties
  • Select the BETAS tab
  • From the drop-down menu, select “beta – Beta Testing”

If you notice any issues while using the new beta, be sure to report them in the Steam forums or on the Vinyl Reality Discord server.

About This Software

Developed in Berlin, the European capital of electronic music, in close cooperation with professional DJs, Vinyl Reality aims to provide the most intuitive, accurate and realistic simulation of DJing with vinyl inside virtual reality.

Every knob, button and fader, on both the turntables and mixer, has been carefully replicated to look, feel and behave like their real-world counterparts. For users new to DJing, this means the skills they learn can also be applied outside of virtual reality. For more experienced DJs it ensures the application is both straightforward and intuitive.
