Pedaler 5:00 PM - 1 August, 2013
Hi there, I would like to broadcast Live on Mixlr using Serato SL3 with 1210's a vestax mixer and a 2013 macbook pro (non retina display) How may I go about this? is there a way of connecting with Soundflower? if so, how? If this is not possible, are there any alternative options.

Many Thanks.

Serato, Support

Hi Pedaler,

Thanks for get in touch with us.

You will need to purchase/use an RCA to 3.5mm Jack cable.

Connect a RCA to 3.5 mm jack from the RCA master output of your mixer to the input/output on your Mac.

If you have a 13" Mac laptop you'll have to change the input/out port via System preference > Sound > Use audio port for: > 'Sound input'

Open Mixlr application on your Mac and change audio source to "Built-in Input".

Hopefully this clears things out. Let me know if you have any Serato side of questions.

Kind Regards

I'm interested in using Mixlr but my MacBook does not have an external input except for the mic at the top of the monitor!

The iMic is a simple and cheap solution: It should just work but you might have to change the audio input setting in your system preferences.

I'm trying to run a livestream mix through Mixlr with the Pioneer DDJ S1 and am failing.
It shows up on the Mixlr audio in option as Line (PIONEER DDJ-S1) with channel options 1&2 or 3&4, but everytime I select one it says "OpenStream failed with error code -9996" Help?

My advice is to buy a usb audio capture device..i use a citronic ac 1usb..mixlr will pick up the device as a line in..never any issues with failed open streams

Been using Mixlr for a few years and I know that if the OS doesn't recognize your controller as a soundcard then no matter what Mixlr sees it's not going to work. Use any external soundcard connected to your laptop (I use a Tascam US-2x2) and Mixlr will see it. I recommend connecting the soundcard to the booth output of your controller/mixer.
