This article explains how to connect and configure a microphone with an AUDIO 8 DJ interface. In this example, we will be routing the microphone to TRAKTOR's Deck C.
- Connect your microphone to the MIC Input of the AUDIO 8 DJ.
- Make sure that the knob is switched to MIC, not LINE and that the MIC GAIN knob is turned up sufficiently.
- Go to Preferences > Input Routing and set the Input Deck C (which is the microphone input channel of the AUDIO 8 DJ) to 5: In: Ch C Left for the L channel.
Note: Channel C on the AUDIO 8 DJ includes the Inputs 5 / 6, but since a microphone is mono, the MIC Input is routed to Input 5 only.
- Click on the arrow under DECK C and select Live Input from the drop-down menu.
The microphone signal will now come out of OUT 5 / 6 on the AUDIO 8 DJ. You can connect this output to an external mixer or to a pair of speakers.
