PuttePRO InfinityMember since 2004
Hi, when i connect the mic to input 1 on the backside i see the ledbars on channel one react to the mic input but i cant get the output to the speaker , The output is working on my 2 channels i use to mix with. someting must be wrong with my setting , the image is the default setting.

Yes, no mic in Audio Setup. Just set CH1 Source switcher to MIC1 and then use the CH1 Fader on the DDJ-SX3 to adjust Mic Volume.

This is strange. If i run VDJ i can see the VU meters from the mic but a cant get any sound of the mic out of SX3.
But if i close down VDJ (X) the mic sounds, can it be some setting in VDJ or in windows that prevents the mic to sound when VDJ i running?

I am having the same issue described above. Running VDJ Pro and never had any issues with previous SX2. When running with the Sx3, Mic 1 does not work, or sometimes will work then just turns off. I still see meter acknowledging the voice input, but no output. I have taken the controller to an authorized Pioneer Tech Center, they replaced the whole inner board in November. The Controller is now doing the same thing as before, even using multiple laptops. VDJ issue or Pioneer hardware problem, I am not sure.

Beside this problem, do you think it was a good upgrade from the SX2 ?

Hi, thanks for your help. My set up does match the one that you linked. It will work, but I then go through a couple tracks, then no mic output on mic #1.

Try to get the mic to work without having VDJ running , and then if you get the mic to sound you start VDJ. Worked for me ..
