Topic: MIC unable to record
all help is appreciated.

i have a external behringer vmx 1000 mixer and hercules rmx sound card. i can record normally and sounds fine, i can even hear the microphone through the mixer loud and clear but it will not pick up on the recording. I have searched the manual and feeds but no configuration i have read is working. the picture indicates the options for mic sound and i have selected each config to no avail.
all equipment used:
sound card: rmx / controller
2 ndx 800 with controller capability (no soundcard)
pc windows 8
behringer vmx1000 usb

On some hardware setups the mic is send diretly to master out and not to the laptop. In that case you can't record it inside VDJ as part of the mix. You then instead need to send the master out (or booth out) somewhere to get recorded

Looking at your audio config this could be the case for your setup
My guess is that if you click the rmx button and then automatically also get the speaker and headphone option selected in the first column, it would have a bigger chance of success. Often in external mixer mode it won't work

Also, make sure you set up the mic in the Windows system.

thanks all, i finally figured out what my issue was, with my mixer and the set up i showed, i had to run a loop back from my record out to my mic send and it is crystal clear. it only took me from 6 pm to 1 am...smh
