Issue with Sound stopping while recording in Audacity

I am trying to run my DJ controller into Audacity and record the mix.
I have found that when I start recording in Audacity it stops the audio from my DJ Controller so that I cant hear anything playing but if I check my recording it has recorded successfully.

Any ideas what is wrong and how I can fix it so that I can hear the audio while recording.


You would think that Transport > Options > Software Playthrough and specifying your output device in the Device Toolbar would work.

Many users have found these controllers to be a little tricky. Let me suggest if the above doesn’t work, then do a search on “Pioneer Rekordbox” both here and on google.

Post back what you find. If you are still unsuccessful, please post specific details.
