I have the kam ddx 750 decks and the mix 150 mixer put through to a korg minikp 3. i tried to record to my pc using the line out on the kp3 but when i listen to it its really distored so much that you can hardly make out the music. do i need a usb interface or something to record?
thanks...

Was you using the Mic In on your PC? Make sure you're using the Line In, if you've got one :) Also check your levels throughout the signal chain

ive tried mic in and line in. i saw just a second ago when i did a search that i should mute the mic input when using line input so ill try that and see what happens. my MKP 3 distorts the signal itself when i switch the volumes up on my mixer so the output on the mixer is not very high and not showing up on the equilizer atall and the volume o each deck is at about 2 bars above zero with gain at about -2 Db. so im pretty much having to control volume using my amp.

no im still getting crazy distortion. through both inputs. its making a constant buzzing noise the whole way through. im going to record a mix any way using my mic. but my mics really rubbish and it sounds hollow but i still gonna do it.
any one else had this problem.
another problem with my gear is that every now and then when i change records the volume on either the left or right channel drops down so i only hear from one speaker or headphone and i have to take the lead out and plug it back in again. could this be faulty gear or crap cheap gear?

thats something completely different. i think its a problem thats quite common, if the earth wire in the power cable/powerpack isnt quite connected probley it ommits a hum, as do most electrical items. if you have a spare power cable that will fit your pc, you could try that first, it can sometimes fix it. is it an old pc/powerpack/powercable?
