F. INPUTS & RECORDING
The Terminal Mix 8 offers 2 stereo Inputs. An AUX at the rear side (Input Channels 1 and 2)
and a Microphone Input at the front (Input channels 3 and 4). Each one of the Inputs can
be routed through the Master Output directly (front switcher to MST position) or through
VirtualDJ (front switcher to SW position). A Level knob for each Input is offered to adjust its
Input Volume.
Recording & Broadcasting
The unit offers the ability to record the Master Output directly from VirtualDJ record button
(in the MASTER center panel). The Microphone and the AUX Inputs can be also recorded
and controlled, it those are at the SW position.
In this case a Line In and a Microphone line need to be manually added to the audio
configuration.
Note. If the Microphone (or the Line Input) is not required to be recorded, it is advised not to
route the Microphone through the software, as an additional latency will be applied.
Timecodes
Even though the Terminal Mix 8 is not designed to support Timecoded CDs and Vinyls
(DVS), the unit is capable to offer Timecode setups. In theory only a single Timecode
device can be used (connection to the AUX Input), however a second Timecoded device can
be also connected to the MIC Input (and adjust the Level of its signal).
The following audio configuration is showing a single Timecode input.
