Have you installed the latest drivers for that mixer? For Big Sur you need the "Version3.0.0" drivers (updated 04/Feb/2021)

Yes, I did it yesterday. Unluckily issue continues.

Audacity records from the computer's sound system, and the sound system is showing (in "Audio MIDI setup") that the device only has a "left" input channel, so that's all that Audacity sees.

There may be a switch somewhere on the mixer to select mono / stereo, or there may be a fault with the mixer. I'm not familiar with that mixer, so your best chance of finding / fixing the problem is likely to be either the mixer's user manual, or Pioneer support.

Right, seems it's a Macbook Air issue. Just left channel receives sound, 2 channels out, 1 in. Pretty ridiculous considering it's not a cheap computer.

Thanks!

Changed my Mac, now working on a Pro and the problem persists. Seems not an issue from the Air set up. Is there anything else you would recommend to check out?

Try doing a "factory reset" of your DJM-750

Not working either. Looks like I have no other option than recording in digital and end my relation with Audacity :(
