These days I downloaded Virtual DJ 7 and I'd be greatful if somebody tell me what is a key and keymatch in VDJ,because I've heard that there's impossible to make good hardstyle mixes without using the keys...

u should know a bit about music theory ;) every track has a certain key e.g D-Minor, C-Major or whatever. Every key is given a "key-code" which u can show in virtual dj aswell. u can use these key-codes for harmonic-mixing, which will make ur transitions sound much better. look here: http://www.harmonic-mixing.com/HowTo.aspx

it's suuuuper-useful!
not just for harmonic mixing, but also for composing and creating your tracks,
since certain keys can carry certain emotions with them (:
harmonic mixing is btw a good idea especially if you're a beginner, it makes your transitions sound a lot smoother
