    Default Vinyl Recording

    Hi,

    I have 2 turntables and a DJ mixer pioneer DJM 250. I would like to record some mixes. I heard that I need to buy an external sound card (USB), but I'm a little bit lost.

    Do you have any suggestions of a reasonable (in price) sound card? I have in mind the Roland Tri-Capture USB, what do you think about it?

    thanks for your responses!

    Cheers

    You already have all you need, just connect the Master 2 output of your mixer to the Input 3 on your audio interface, then assign that to any recording software or your favourite DAW and you should be cool =).

    I don't think OP has an audio interface yet - hence the question.

    Don't know about the Tri-Capture, but a lot of people use some sort of NI audio interface - they have different models for different prices and inputs/outputs. (I have a mixer w/ a built-in interface) Another option would be to get a portable recorder - but then you're limited in the time you can record.

    You can record out on the master 2 I believe.. Run a dual RCA into the 3.5 mm jack on your laptop. select input of jack to sound in, and use a free program like audacity to record the mix

    I recorded loads of vinyl to my old desktop using the built in soundcard. The quality is fine.

    The Audio 4 soundcard is great fo rthis and can be had pretty affordably. Make sure you save in uncompressed wav format in case you need to make any tweaks after recording. I have always been a big fan of recording straight from the preamp instead of routing through a mixer. Hope this helps.
