Microphone use with DJ pro?

  • Question
  • Updated 9 months ago
I've seen a couple of forum topics on this but they were a couple of years old. I wanted to just get an updated answer.

If somebody wanted to try using an external microphone with DJ Pro, I saw the recommendation from a couple of years back that one might be able to use the app Audiobus to help make that happen.

However, I also saw a comment Spotify playlists/etc. did not work with DJ Pro and Audiobus/microphone, therefore not really useful for people who want to use DJ pro to voice over music they are playing through Spotify

I saw these comments on a post from two years ago. So, is this still correct? Or is there now someway to use a microphone input with DJ Pro while playing Spotify music?

Thanks for any information.

I have an iPad Air with iOS 9.3.3. I believe the DJ pro version is 1.0.3 – that's what it says on the bottom of the options menu. Thanks.

Hi Eric,

the problem right here is that djay is not supported as "output" item in Audiobus.
That means you can use a mic recording application as input for djay.

Nevertheless, are you using an external controller besides djay Pro, controllers like the WeGo3 have a microphone input which is going straight through the master.

Cheers,

I have DJ Pro with a controller and external mic. How do I get the mic to go through the speakers? I have a splitter with one on the speakers and one for the headphones. Please advise.

Hi Lukas-
I'm using a Numark Mixtrak 3 and DJay Pro and yes my controller has a mic output. See pics below. Let me know what settings the controller and DJay Pro need to be on please.

Hi Lindsay,

thank you for the pictures. First thing that comes to my mind is that if you use the Mixtrack Pro 3 you don't need a splitter cable if you connect your speakers and Headphones to the Mixtrack and select the controller as Main Output and Pre Cuing Output (image 3). That is important for using your Microphone:
 
Your Mic is not usable internally in djay Pro as long as your Mac is not having a Microphone input, which the Macbook Air does not. So you can only use your Microphone to go through the Master of your Controller after using an adapter to connect the Mic to the Mixtrack's Mic input.

After doing so and connecting your Speakers to the Mixtrack as well, explained above, you can use your Microphone.

Cheers,Lukas E.
