I’m looking to record a DJ vinyl mix using the following kit -
IMAC Retina 27 Inch.
Stanton SMX501 Mixer
Audio 8 DJ sound interface
KRK VXT6 speakers
I’ve tried the following - Master out (RCA to RCA) to Audio 8 for monitoring the sound through the speakers.
1 X RCA to Headphone jack to connect the mixer’s record to the iMac.
I only have the option to select the microphone in the recording settings in Audacity, I trued this and as you can imagine it sounded terrible when it was played back. How should i set this up to record my mix? Thanks
Can I add I also have Ableton 9.
I would also like to add I’m using Audacity version 1.2.5
I’ve also got Ableton 9
You should be using Audacity 2.1.0.
But that won’t solve the problem of newer iMacs not having a stereo line connection.
I use a Behringer UCA-202 to get around this.
I know you don’t have PC, but read through that, especially toward the bottom.
Hi many thanks for the reply.
I’ll update Audacity as soon as possible
I have the following device - http://www.m-audio.com/products/view/midisport-2x2-anniversary-edition#.VYW2nmAUr8s
Would this device be used to get around the iMac not having a stereo line connection? If not I’ll buy the UCA-202.
I forgot to mention I also have access to a mixer - http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/alto-zephyr-zmx862-6-channel-compact-mixer-n16nk
Thanks once again.
Hi, thanks for the reply
I’ll update Audacity ASAP.
I’ve got access to the following device http://www.m-audio.com/products/view/midisport-2x2-anniversary-edition#.VYXj2WAUr8s
Would this device be able get round the problem of the iMac not having a stereo line connection?
If not, i’ll get one of those 202’s.
Is it RCA from the 202 to the DJ mixer?
The M-Audio device is a MIDI manager. That’s keyboard instructions, not music, so no.
The UCA-202 is RCA in and out (it’s bidirectional). My mixer happens to have RCA connections on the Tape Out and that’s what I use.
Fantastic. I’ll order a UCA-202 and get recoding that mix! Many thanks for the info, much appreciated.
