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 v1.1.0 – Underground Club Environment

Update 1.1.0 of Vinyl Reality has left the beta phase and is now available to all users!

The main new feature in this update is the underground club environment with sound reactive lighting. Please keep in mind that this is only the first iteration of the new environment, and that more features (additional types of lights, special effect and a virtual interactive crowd) will be added in subsequent updates.

To showcase the new environment and further promote the application, I’ve recorded an eclectic half hour DJ set packed with ten of my favorite tracks:
This update took quite a long time to finish, because a lot of new content needed to be created, but from now on I plan to divide features into smaller updates, which will be released more often. I have updated the roadmap to reflect these changes.

The next update will focus on building a basic SDK, so users can create and import their own environments into the application.

Full Release Notes:
  • Environments: Added first iteration of new underground club environment with sound reactive lighting
  • General: Added support for AIFF file format
  • General: Hid interaction outlines on specator cameras
  • User Settings: Stored audio settings separately for different XR SDKs
  • Bug Fix: Fixed loading screen on record case UI not displaying correctly in certain edge cases
  • Bug Fix: Fixed visual stutter on turntable platter and slipmat rotation
  • Bug Fix: Fixed intense glow on vinyl record label text when bloom was enabled

Thanks again to all beta testers who helped test this new update ;)

Club Environment - Beta now available!

I’m happy to announce that the beta version of the upcoming update (EA v1.1.0) is now available for testing!

This update includes the first version of the new club environment with sound responsive lighting.

Most of the features are completely functional, but some things still need to be finished before the final version will be released, including:
  • Replacing the DJ workstation with a flight case version
  • Adding the streaming console and spectator cameras to the club
  • Small tweaks and minor bug fixes

Please keep in mind that this is only the first iteration of the new club environment, and that more features will be added in subsequent updates. For an overview of all planned features, check out the Early Access Roadmap.

To get access to the beta test, all you need to do is sign-up to the Vinyl Reality mailing list and you’ll receive the beta unlock code!

If you encounter any issues while testing the beta, or have other feedback, be sure to share it in this forum thread or on the Vinyl Reality Discord Sever.

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.

  • Optional BPM (Beats per Minute) displays for beginners
