Recording direct/indirect with no mic socket on laptop

Postby steviehdg on 10 Mar 2018, 19:24

Hi all
Hope someone may be able to offer some advice.
I’m running Cross DJ via Hercules Rmx & a HP laptop.
I’ve tried looking at this post viewtopic.php?f=371&t=11973 but the images don’t work work. I get that I need to route the signal from the external mixer back to the laptop but my laptop doesn’t have a mic jack.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

think you need to route the controllers output ( if its line level ,, back to computer line in put,, which should be line level input ,, ) best to check .. couple thing you will run across is added resources used by this and software sacrificing ,, also gonna have time lag on signal processing for controller back to computer ,, since the signal is processed by computer then controller then computer again , :cool:

Cheers. Is there a way of recording, without a 2nd laptop, that isn’t so resource heavy?
Here’s the money mixer: https://medias.audiofanzine.com/images/ ... 331905.jpg
I’m guessing use the 2 output channels in the middle but not sure where the other end goes??
Sorry if I’m being a bit dumb

Mixer is powered by an external powered UCB hub. Decks can be used but haven’t been for a long time. No intention to record mic.

:cool: are you just using MIDI control and are you using internal mixer audio routing in the Cross audio tab /can you use this ,, then you can use the Cross rec function ,, if you have to use external mixer mode then you will need a external recorder ,ie route back to computer rec function or second computer or a daw ,, :cool: in external mixer mode/routing the outputs of controller never come back to Cross to be recorded , internal records either deck 1,,2 or mix ,,
hope this helps :cool:

Hi Daniel
It’s using the internal mixer set to dual stereo. When I try to record the wav file doesn’t play anything even though the file size would indicate that there was something there.
