    I've been Djing for about 8 weeks now and I really wanna record a mix (Or at least, I feel confident that I could record a Half decent Mix).

    So whats the best way to record a Mix? Through a Laptop, or forking out for a professional "Straight to CD" recorder, or an Mp3 recorder? etc etc.

    Thanks.

    Through ya laptop mate, get ya self audio editing software (I use Adobe Audition) but there are loads out there...

    and from a master out on ya mixer or Amp into a line in on a Lappy...

    thats how i do it, it will work better than forkin out for a straight to CD jobby cos u can edit ya mix and clean it up afterwards n ting...hope this helps bro..

    Speak up if ya stuck mate...
