Hi,

When your mixing some music on your X mixer, do you ever record the ,,session" on to your computer?

Currently I got a Pioneer DJM 800 Mixer and a simple Laptop. What I would like to do is to record what I'm playing into the laptop.
Any pointers out there ?

regards,
CP

Hey!

Well you need Line in on the Laptop, i think there are various solutions, i dont know if the Mic in can be used as line in.. maybe someone knows... ??

then you need some recording software, Cubase, Adobe audition, wavelab, soundforge and so on..

on your Dj mixer there should be Rec out, you can use that to get the signal out to the laptop

and check the "vu meters" so its not going clipping while recording and try to levels of the channels equal

good luck and keep spinning!!!

^+1, also it isn't very good, it's the best free recording software out there.

I would also suggest recording it at around -3 to -6 dB, then normalizing it later.           You believe in the users?
Yeah, sure. If I don't have a user, then who wrote me?

Usually u can switch mic/line in function of the input on laptop.. Record that with harddiskogg.. I always record my sessions to see how Im progressing..
U got VU meter on harddiskogg.. U can also record directly to mp3..

You might want to read this!

So essentially its a matter if your Mic/line in is too noisy for your taste, then you might want to get some kind of audio interface..

I run my DJM400 through this:

http://www.rolandus.com/products/productdetails.aspx?ObjectId=970

which is hooked to my laptop and I record it into audacity.

audacity is fine for demos unless you are making a mix for Ministry of Sound or are a producer, best fo all it does everything you need for free, just google it!

down load my mix in the dj demo section or from www.triplag.com/4room

why spend hundreds on a program for just recording a dj mix!?

mine got airplay on Triplag web radio and osund fine on most stereos and headphones!

Edirols ia a great little tool and good value for money,and you can use it for other things if you move into a bit of production!

Good luck and look forward to your mixes           I hate you, you hate me, we are all so hap hap happy!

i use mostly peak also or free audacity works too
you can record it too on live and do some work on it after like samples and stuff

a normal line i works great espcially the new mixers have good plug possibilities
or even digital line out

i wouldnt use mic too much sidenoises
or use minidisc and dat and hook up to computer old school
