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.”

A year in review

If you’re wondering what has changed since the initial Early Access release a year ago, here’s an overview of some of the major features that have been added since then:
  • Native Oculus Rift support
  • Ergonomic DJ workstation with adjustable height and angle
  • Vinyl records grooves which visualize the track’s structure
  • Support for loading FLAC, OGG, WAV, WMA and AIF file formats
  • Optional BPM (Beats per Minute) display
  • Windows Mixed Reality support
  • Recording Studio environment
  • Streaming console and third person cameras for live streams or performances
  • Main menu redesign
  • Underground club environment with sound reactive lights and visual effects
  • Vinyl Reality environment SDK
Apart from all these features, there have of course also been a ton of minor improvements and bug fixes. I look forward to developing even more new features with the help from the community, and to releasing the full version of Vinyl Reality some time next year.

Thank you!

I’d like to give a big thank you to everyone who’s supported Vinyl Reality over the past year, since none of this would have been possible without you!

Update EA v1.1.1 – Vinyl Reality SDK

Version 1.1.1 of Vinyl Reality is now available. This is quite a small update to the application itself, but I’m also releasing version 1.0 of the Vinyl Reality SDK alongside it.

The Vinyl Reality SDK enables you to create custom environments for Vinyl Reality inside the Unity Editor. It includes an example scene and all the components needed to setup your own Unity scene so that it can be loaded in Vinyl Reality.

In this first version, the functionality is limited and only exposes control on spawning the user and placing all of the required DJ Gear, but future version of the SDK will gradually expose more functionality.

To get started creating your own environments, download the SDK and the documentation from the Vinyl Reality website.

If you create an environment and want to share it with the rest of the Vinyl Reality community, be sure to post it on the SDK Discord channel!
A more convenient way to share and install the environments from inside the application itself, will be added in the future.

Looking forward to seeing all of your creations!

Full release notes:
  • General: Released SDK v1.0 for creating custom environments
  • General: Added “load custom content” panel to main menu to load user created content
  • General: Improved main menu design
  • Bug Fix: Possible fix for audio issues reported by some users

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.

  • Fully-featured 2-channel DJ mixer with per channel EQ, PFL and gain
  • Record case to browse and load your personal music collection
  • Underground club environment with sound reactive lights and visual effects
  • Support for all common audio file formats: mp3, flac, wav, ogg, aif and wma
