How do people record their mixes?

IllusionsDJ noted

I have often wondered what programs people use to record their mixes, I personally record in Camtasia Studio 6 as a voice narration then convert the wave to mp3 at 192kbps afterward.

i have an iriver E100 and

i have an iriver E100 and use line-in recording straight out of my mixer. iriver is the only ipod-like mp3 player that has line in recording (as far as i know)

and thats the only reason to buy an iriver because besides recording the new ones are functionally shite

Adobe Auditon + M-Audio

Adobe Auditon + M-Audio Fasttrack Pro sound card.

Audobe bought what used to be called Cool Edit 2000, and re-branded it as "Audition".

Lets you record into .wav or any other format for that matter. But as i like to make as high quality as possible mp3s I always record as a .wav file.

Then I use EAC (Exact Audio Copy) and Lame (Mp3 Encoder) to turn the .wav into an .mp3.

I usually use encode as 320vbr new with highest quality encoding possible, makes the file a little bit bigger but everyone is on broadband these days. And I'd rather have you listen to a good copy of my demo Smiling

I hit record in Traktor.

I hit record in Traktor. Direct stream dump with zero signal loss for the win!
Then encode the WAV to MP3 with LAME, usually --preset extreme %1 though lately i find 175kbit VBR makes the files more "managable" online Sticking out tongue

I have no idea what a prerecorded mix is, but I know that a lot of people are very against it. I don't know whether a prerecorded mix is either not playing your own music, playing other peoples mashups, just playing tracks, or even making the mix before the performance starts and just hitting the play button, disabling all buttons except for effects so you can pretend to DJ. Thanks for your answers.

External CD Recorder - Old

External CD Recorder - Old Skool I know!

Means that I have to get the mixing right everytime I record (cause it costs me a disc everytime I do!) However, another plus is indexing the disc when I've finished...

In my library I have my:
1. Masters File (with my best ever planned recorded mixes)
2. Beta File (which typically contain ad-lib mixes created on the fly - sometimes my best work has come from these sets, as I have challenged myself to try new things/directions as I'm going, and I haven't worried about the recording aspect of them either)

Have never spent money on recording (apart from buying CDs in bulk), and I reckon my recorded sound has retained an above average quality to it. And for this all my respect has to go to the technicians that built my mixer - Can't recommend Vestax enough!

Mind you nothing beats a good club sound, or mixing in a studio booth!

Used to use Alesis

Used to use Alesis Masterlink (a CD recorder with a hard drive so a bad mix didn't mean losing a CD), recently Ive been using Ableton Live with an Emu sound card. Using software allows a bit of editting and more precise limiting than the old masterlink, sad that its now just gathering dust, still looks good and can record up to 50 hours of audio in one go so not getting rid of it yet Smiling
