Connecting laptop to mixing deck!!

Does anyone know of a good means to connect a laptop to a mixing deck to play music at a party. The only way iknow is by using the earphone socket, the only trouble is, you don't get the full volume going to the mixing deck as you would using a record deck or cd deck.

OK, try to increase the earphone socket volume by clicking on the 'speaker' icon on the task bar.

Sometimes it is not set to maximum volume in Windows' sound settings, to get full volume going to the mixing deck.

I know a DJ who used the same method to get very loud and clear sounds from his music collection at dances and parties.

Hope this helps!

I have a Schwinn Blue Tunes Bike Speaker. It pairs to my Samsung galaxy S4 through Bluetooth with no problem. I am able to control my spotify account with no problem using the device. I am able to play,...


It seems many people use only the term "paired" when talking about CONNECTING two Bluetooth devices. Connecting two Bluetooth devices means first "pairing" them and then "connecting" them. Pairing is a one time process done only the first time you try to connect the devices. It is like the two devices getting to know about each other. Next step is to actually connect the two and this process is done the first time after the pairing and then every time you want to use the speaker from your phone. When you open the Bluetooth tab on your phone's Settings menu you will see the names of all the Bluetooth devices it has been paired with previously and a "Paired" word next to it. If you want to use the device/speaker, tap on the name and it will CONNECT to it. You will see the word "Connected" instead of "Paired". Now you should have the music that you play on the phone coming out through the speaker. If you still can't hear the music over the speaker after a successful connection, turn up the volume on your phone (and on your speaker, if it has its own volume controls).

How can I send recordings to my laptop? I have a usb connector and i want to connect my portable grand to my laptop but the laptop does not detect the piano and i don't know what to press on the piano...


Hi mjaynneb,

I could be wrong here but I have a number of keyboards and the USB connection is usually for Midi control from software like Cubase and the like. If by recording you mean recording Audio then I think you'll find that it won't be possible using the USB port.

Midi is great and I use it a lot. It enables you to arrange music using your computer. Also you can record the music you play on the Keyboard on the computer as Midi. This means that the computer can play back through your arranger what you just played. Bear in mind though that Midi is purely numbers that represent notes, velocities and note duration so is not actually audio.

My keyboards have the ability to record to SD card or a Hard Drive, however if this is not a feature of your arranger then probably your best bet for recording audio from it is by using the Audio out ports of your arranger and using a connecting lead to a good low noise sound card on your computer. As you are using a laptop you can find external usb sound cards/interfaces so that should do fine. Then you could probably use something like Audacity which is free software, to record to a wav file.

I hope this helped.
Kind Regards

Will a MP3/iPod/CD player play through a Fender Frontman 65 or 212 "Power In" input jack?


The power amp input jack takes "line level" input BUT is monaural (single channel). The output of an ipod is Stereo. Hence you would have to "mix" the two channels before connecting to the Fender. Mixing does NOT mean just tying the two channels together. A minimu thing would be a passive resistive mixer consisting of a resistor from each of the IPOD channels to the common point going to the input of the Fender. Remember if you plug into the Fender power amp input you DISCONNECT the preamp and other circuits and would ONLY hear the IPOD input.

Instruction manual for ministry of sound mixing decks


What are Ministry of Sound mixing decks? I am familiar with MOS, but was not aware they manufactured mixing decks?

Are you connecting these to a DJ mixer, or a Home Receiver?

If it's going through a home receiver, make sure you have them connected to the PHONO input on your receiver. If your receiver does not have a phono input, and you are connecting to the LINE IN or AUX IN section on the rear, you will not hear much. Most turntables require a pre-amplified signal, and only the PHONO input has this option. So, you will need to purchase a PHONO PRE-AMP, and connect your turntable to it, then connect the PHONO pre-amp to the LINE IN.

If you are connecting to a DJ mixer... same thing. Make sure you have them connected to the PHONO INPUT on the mixer. If you still don't get anything, then there might be something wrong with your mixer.

If you could clarify you exact set up, and the EXACT models, we can help you better.

Moodey newmark cd mix 2


Just wanted to tell you i have the same problem with my right deck! after about 2-3 hours of usage the right deck will start to skip while playing a cd...almost sounds like im fast forwarding then itll just stop playing, but only on the right deck! Ive noticed that it happens when the unit gets hot whether by usage or sunlight. Now as for youre issue about the crackling, i have two staements one is the cd youre playing scratched? ive had cds that have had minor path scratches that follow around the cd not straight across scratches..while playing this sounds like static or crackle then fades away! I would recommend playing the cd in a entirely different unit to see if this is the prob...if you know this is not the issue i would say that its a loose connection to a capicator or that a capacitor is on the way out...this happens when the capacitor is cold and doesnt let proper flow to go thru but as the capacitor heats up it it may heat the connection making a better contact.....just out of curiousity do you have the right rated fuse in the holder.. sometimes just having a fuse off by a couple of volts or milliamps can cause the same effect
