Txs. Had a look at that post but not sure how this could apply in my case - unless I didn’t understand it. The post talks about a particular sequence of connections and I have tried to first connect to the Apple TV via AirPlay (main output=Apple TV) and then connect the DDJ-SB3. As soon as I do that the main output changes from Apple TV to the DDJ out ch. 1-2 (ch. 3-4 for pre-cueing) and AirPlay goes off.
I have tried to capture my setup in the following diagram. The DDJ-SB3 is connected via an original Apple USB connector; the connector has a second port to charge the iPad. The DDJ-SB3 main out connects to a Behringer audio interface powered via a laptop. The audio out from the Behringer goes to the AVR. Apple TV is on the same Wifi network as the iPad and mirrors via AirPlay.
No matter what I do as soon as I stream to the Apple TV the main out in djay PRO AI reverts to the Apple TV and I can’t switch back to the DDJ. There’s an option Split Output for pre-cueing which is not relevant in my case as I don’t use a splitter cable.
I’m using the internal mixer mode given I connect to the DDJ-SB3. If I switch to external mixer mode while AirPlay is on I don’t get any options for routing of decks 1-4 or pre-cueing.
The iPad connector also has a HDMI out I could use to connect the TV but the distance between TV and iPad makes this impossible/impractical. What if I want to use a projector? The AirPlay route is very attractive and opens up a lot of possibilities but may not be feasible given the challenges on audio routing.
Yeah even if if works on a Mac that doesn’t help me unfortunately
I’m waiting to hear back from a user commenting on this video Djay Pro AI Music Video Tutorial - YouTube where he described he used AirPlay to an Apple TV connected to the HDMI sound booth which was away from the DJ booth. I wonder how he got this to work; or maybe he ran the set without the pre-cue channel which is hard to believe
