    Default Recording your mix on Traktor....

    What do you all use to record your mixes you do on traktor on a macbook pro? on my windows laptop i used a programme called cool edit pro. Now i've got my macbook i was wondering how you all do it? i know i can record within traktor but thats just wav format. I've just downloaded audacity 1.3.8 from the apple website, anyone use this? seems pretty similar to cool edit pro looking at the GUI on the picture. Any feedback on this programme would be greatly appreciated or any other programmes available for recording my sets.

    I just record using traktor and then convert the .wav into a 320kbps mp3 after with garageband... can be done with itunes or audacity as well.

    Yeah just open garageband, drag the .wav into it. I usually cut off the silent bits at the beginning and end of the mix cause there's about 10 seconds between when I normally press record and actually get songs going. Just make sure when you go into option to select custom and configure that cause the default is pretty bad. Same for iTunes, default import quality is SHIT (like 160kbps) so make sure to increase that so any CD's you rip wont sound awful.

    You can even set chapters in Garage Band with album art and links to downloads for each song in the mix. Pretty cool, but more work.
