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.”

Club Environment – Progress Report

Since I know a lot of you are eagerly awaiting the next update, which will include the brand new club environment, I thought I’d give you all an update on the progress so far.

The last couple of weeks I’ve been mainly focused on programming a system that analyses the audio signal from the mixer in real-time, to detect beats and energy transitions in the music.
This system will drive all the sound reactive light and visual effects inside the club environment. For example, the colors of the lights will change depending on the energy of the track that’s playing, dimming to warm and soft tones during quiet interludes, to then abruptly change into bright and vivid hues when the beat drops in again.

Here’s a short video showing the new system working its magic in an early version of the club environment:
For now I’m quite happy with how well the system works. It can adapt to different genres of music and is rather versatile. I will probably keep working on the system after the first iteration of the club environment has been released, to further improve its accuracy and reliability.

Before starting work on the sounds reactive lighting system, I designed the basic layout of the club environment. I tried many different iterations, trying to find a space that feels and looks good from a VR perspective, while keeping in mind performance constraints. The current design I’ve settled on has a strong underground vibe and is heavily inspired by Berlin clubs located in old industrial buildings.

The next couple of weeks I’ll be working on adding details to the club environment as well as adding more lighting and visual effects. If you want to stay up to date with the latest developments, I suggest you join 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.
