Connect to the PC on the sound card, press + in the Advanced Config and add a microphone. Then set the correct sound card and channel.

Not really difficult ;-)

Greetings, Heiko

you have to adjust the mic from the on-board sound card

so on the plus

then select in the 1st tab Mic - in the 2nd the sound card (on-board sound chip if you want to use the pc headset) and in the 3rd then input 1/2.

mhh ... does not work -.-

Can't I just plug it into microphone slot one at the back of the vms4? and activate it at the front of the vms4?
would that work too? :)

your pc mic will not work there - or not satisfactorily ...

then you have to buy another mic Shure or similar.

Hello everybody!!
First of all, I'm brand new here and what VDJ
is also not so experienced.
I would also like to connect a microphone to the VDJ 8 Home Version. Can I use a normal mic, i.e. with a large jack plug and adapter to small jack, which normally goes into a mixer, or do I need a USB mic?

Many thanks for your help

greeting
Marco

I don't know now to what extent the mic in the VDJ 8 Home Free version and the inputs in the SK configuration are activated, but even there it should work as a test with a minimum of 10 minutes per restart of the VDJ software.

Use the large jack 6.3mm mic with the adapter on the 3.5mm jack and then plug the mic on the PC / notebook into the side or rear jack connection with mic (pink color) or a mic picture.
If the color is green, the headphones come on.
then correctly set the input in VDJ 8 in the audio settings or / SK = sound card configuration.
At the end, activate the mic in the skin with the button and set the mic gain beforehand.

If it is a headset then also use mic in pink and headphones in green, or use an adapter from 1x 3.5mm jack to 2x jack red / green.

Thanks for the help!
I don't know now if this is a problem for VDJ,
because I go through the headphone output of the laptop via jack / chinch to my hi-fi amplifier and from there to my speakers.
Since my laptop unfortunately only has the headphone output, I bought a small external USB sound card (headphones and mic. Jack output) and then wanted to connect the microphone to it, but this did not work with my first attempts and settings.
Now, of course, I don't know whether I have set the configurations correctly or whether the microphone with jack is not compatible with VDJ or whether it only works with USB mic or not at all.

In VDJ 7 Home Free this no longer works with external SK, see link

http://www.virtualdj.com/wiki/Version%20Home%20Free%207%20-%20Soundkarte%20einstellen.html

I don't know exactly whether that is the same in the VDJ 8 Home Free


Actually, it should work for at least 10 minutes as a test, since you have a USB sound card on your PC / notebook, you would then have to:

Input: Mic
SK: The USB sound card
Output: loudspeaker



or take a look here:
http://www.virtualdj.com/wiki/V8_DE_audio.html


As far as I know, external sound cards only work in the VDJ 8 Home Free for 10 minutes as a test, then it is switched off until you restart the software.

Otherwise external SKs work in the VDJ 7 - 7.4.7 Pro Basic (Analog Mixer) / VDJ 7-7.4.7 Pro Full as well as in the VDJ 8 versions:

VDJ 8 Plus controller for analog mixer
VDJ 8 Pro Infinity
VDJ 8 Pro Subscriber (monthly book and cancellable subscription version)

Thanks again!!
Sounds banal now, but I managed it, without an external sound card or adapter.
It's not the microphone with the jack, but it doesn't matter. I just took the Singstar microphone with the USB converter and tried it on the USB port. It works wonderfully !! So it was not due to my settings.
I don't know why VDJ doesn't use my jack microphone (additional USB voltage ??), but it apparently works with USB microphones without a second sound card and without a separate microphone output.
I will now test it again with another USB mic, but that's enough for me for now.

Well, if you've got it right now with a USB microphone, it's already good.
I will see the days when I get to the warehouse whether I can do it with my Shure SM48 on an external USB SK with VDJ 8 Home Free, if so I will post the solution here or write a tutorial directly.

Mfg, Dirk

No problem, the forum is there if you have problems with VDJ or other equipment to ask and get help.

Here you will always be helped if there is a solution and someone knows it.
I am very happy to be a member of the VDJ community / VDJ forum user and of course VDJ software user.

Is it currently the fashion to dig up ancient threads ??? It's nice when the SuFu is used ;-)

Back to topic:
Well .... 6.3 jack to 3.5 and then into the input of the sound card .... the poor sound card socket. There is always a lot of weight attached to it ... too much to get proper contact. Furthermore, it depends on the micro. If it has phantom power, it cannot work on the sound card anyway.

I didn't think of something like that, but you're right there could indeed be a lot of weight on the USB stick SK so that the contact is not clean.

I completely forgot to question that, you don't always think of mics with 48V phantom power, especially since most DJ mixers / controllers don't have that built in anyway.

With live and studio consoles that is something different, because it is usually already built in, since it can usually be switched on separately per button for each channel.
But there is a separate box with 48 volts phantom power, but I have no idea.

The one with the jack plug on the external sound card was only used to test whether it even works with this microphone.
I wanted to try it out first because it was a very good one from Sennheiser from my father.
So it was done anyway.

I have now also tested it with an AUNA 900 USB condenser microphone and it works very well.

Depending on the model, they actually had phantom power.

Can you give us the exact name of the Sennheiser with a jack connection?
Then you can find out more about the mic model.

Mfg, Dirk
