    Hi,

    I wana record a mix but im running my decks through some propa shitty old hifi system with no cd player or anything! just tape decks which dont work!

    Its a pretty big one so sounds alright but i cant figure out if i can connect my laptop straight to my mixer without going through an amp? or will i need to buy new amp and speakers?

    the mixer im using is a Vestax PCV275

    Cheers

    looks like its got a master out 2, if u plug that into ur laptop it should record, i may be wrong but i'd give it a go, u might need a rca to mic cable or one of those external soundcard things!

    yeah try it with something like that, as long as ur laptop has a mic input, one of those cables will only be a few quid from a tandy or something.
    if its a master 2 output then it should record the same as whats coming out the first master.

    if u havent got a mic input on ur lappy you'll need something like this
