    Over on the left-hand side, we'll see it is automatically on "RECORD AUDIO". This is most likely the option we'll need, unless we are wanting to BURN to CD, which is the second option. This is the same process as recording audio, so we'll just use that for now.

    At the top we can click to add a check to the box next to "Auto-Start", so when we open Virtual DJ, it will automatically start recording.

    Below that, it lists the "File" name and its location. Click on the button with three dots to find an alternate file and location if desired.

  8. 8
    Below the filename and the "Prompt if overwrite" option, we can choose if we want to "Split in multiple files". Below that we check if we want the file to "Auto-split on crossfade". This means the audio will be cut up into separate songs. We're not going to select those options.

  9. 9
    The next section is the file format, and we can "WAV" or "MP3". We're going to select "WAV" because that is going to be the highest possible audio quality. However, if we're wanting a smaller file size, we can use "MP3".

  10. 10
    This will be using the Lame Encoder, with its location shown in the text box next to "Encoder".

  11. 11
    Choose a "Bitrate" from the drop-down menu. We want the highest bitrate as possible to get the best audio quality; however, this will result in a larger file size. For a smaller file size, choose a slightly smaller bitrate. A good number for a smaller file is around 126 Kbs, but to get the highest possible quality, choose 320 Kbs.

  13. 13
    When ready click on "START RECORDING".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    We will complete the entire recording and do whatever we were planning to do and when finished, we'll press "STOP RECORDING".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Now, we can open that file, and it will have the audio. We can play it, upload it, or whatever we want to do with it. We can also burn it to a CD if desired. That is all we need to do.
