    G'Day.

    So, I am trying to learn to DJ and am told that I should be recordin my mixes so I can listen to them and work out what's right and what's wrong.

    Any suggestions on the best way of doing this? Best products etc? I have Pioneer CDJ 100's and a Pioneer DJM 300s Mixer.

    Is it possible to simply plug an output into a Laptop and record it on that?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Jason

    a minidisc recorder or a tapedeck should do fine if you just want to listen to your mixes afterwards.

    Yep, just get yourself a nice wave editor and an audio interface, your laptop is better for this than anything else really!

    Is that true? Hmmm...apparently recording mixes into a program like sound forge is a popular way of doing it, however I have yet to attempt this - will hopefully be trying it very soon though :Smile3:

    Yeah - it is with laptops, at any rate.

    It's kind of useful 'cos you can easily see what your volume/gain control's like (should be fairly constant) through the duration of the set - plus, if you want to, splitting it up and burning to CD becomes a piece of piss.

    G'Day Jo, and thanks Jack for info.

    Jo, so this lil piece of kit comes bundled with nice software package that does all this easily?

    If you *really* wanted, you can use Windows' built-in Sound Recorder, and there are a few very good freeware audio editors, but as an alternative... *COUGH*checkyourPMs*COUGHSPLUTTERHACK!*.
