 Record Loopback

Q. When I record my mix, I can hear my headphone previewing in the recording

If you are using a standard external hardware audio DJ Mixer or a MIDI controller that has a built-in real hardware audio Mixer (example: Numark MixDeck) and VirtualDJ configured to output its decks to separate channels on the Mixer then you will hear both the live and pre-listened decks in your recording/broadcast if you attempt to record or broadcast your set.

This is because VirtualDJ has no way of knowing where the crossfader/volume sliders are on the external Mixer and which channels are currently playing out live. As far as its concerned, its volume sliders are up and crossfader is in the middle, so both channels are being output live and as such, both will be recorded and/or broadcast.

To be able to record/broadcast, you will need to connect a suitable cable to the REC OUT or RECORD output of your external Mixer and connect this into the line input of your computer's sound card. For a complete guide on how to configure a Record Loopback, please see the User Manual.

AUDIO Configuring a Record Loopback

NOTE: If your Mixer does not have a REC OUT output, the BOOTH output can be used instead providing this is a line-level signal (I.e: Red/white RCA phono sockets.) Make sure that you adjust the booth output to an appropriate level using its knob, because this will affect the overall level of the recording/broadcast.
