RECORD




The Record section allows recording of both your audio and video mixes. By default VirtualDJ records the Master output. If an External Audio Setup is defined or a different recording source needs to be used a RecordLoopback line is required in the Audio Setup.

Select the Format of the recorded file from the drop down and click on the button at the right of the Filename Field to select the filename and the path of the recorded file. The following formats are available to choose from in the drop down menu:


MP3 (default audio format)

Record audio in .MP3 format. By default the quality is set to MID (192 Kbs). A different quality can be selected from the option recordQuality in Advanced Options under the group Record (low=128Kbs, mid=192Kbs, high=320Kbs).


OGG (alternate audio format)
Record audio in .OGG format. Alternative format to mp3 (better quality/less file size than mp3). By default the quality is set to MID (160 Kbs). A different quality can be selected from the option recordQuality in Advanced Options under the group Record (low=112Kbs, mid=160Kbs, high=192Kbs).

FLAC (lossless audio format)
Record audio in .FLAC format. The file is compressed to smaller filesize but without any loss in quality (FLAC files size are smaller than corresponding PCM-encoded WAV files at the same quality).


WEBM (default video format)
Record video in .WEBM format
MP4 (alternate video format)
Record video in .MP4 format


Once the filename and format are set, press the START/STOP RECORD button to start or stop recording your mix.
