I would have thought this had been discussed elsewhere, but after literally hours of searching I am just going to start a new topic, sorry if I am repeating a question asked many times before.

Virtual DJ 7 is causing me a major headache; in VDJ 6 there was the option to record Master+Mic when broadcasting, which was great because I could just switch my mic off when I didn't want it, and keep it hanging there. However, in VDJ 7, this option is gone, and now I cannot for the life of me get my microphone to work.

I don't actually have an external sound card in my computer, I simply used the rear audio outputs for the speakers, and the front panel connects the headphones and microphone. This worked fine in VDJ 6, and I don't see why there is a problem with it in VDJ 7. Now even when using an advanced setup and selecting the correct options, I either get static from my microphone, or my headphones don't work if I use the ASIO drivers. All I want is for all 3 to work as they should. It was possible in VDJ 6, and so I can't see any reason why it shouldn't work in VDJ 7. Any help in resolving this matter would be much appreciated.

I figured out how to record Audio and my Mic for my podcast. Its Pretty cool cause Change my voice and stuff. Here is how you do it..
1) Go to Conf Menu
2) In the Menu first got to Mappers and set up a way to turn on your mic. It should read Deck 2 linein 'mic' And pick something on your keyboard or audio board to turn it on. I used source 1 on my Hercules rmx Board.
3) Ok Here is the tricky part cause everybody keep telling me to to set it up in a way that only gave me audio and after playing around for three days I figured it out.
Go to Sound set up scroll down to advance conf and in that menu is where the magic begins:
You need to Master as your primary sound driver and that's an output next is optin is micrphone and that's an input

After that you can do so much with the mic and record its crazy!!! Have fun and I hope this helps

Why are you using ASIO drivers if you don't have a professional ASIO compatible sound card?

I very much doubt whether the sound built in to your computer is anything but consumer grade.

Either remove the ASIO drivers and use the standard Windows ones (or ones specific to your sound card) or buy a proper ASIO compatible card. :-)

You could also install appropriate button on Mars, it should be easier to make a mix using microphone. It's a juke but you limited a very usefull function to just some hard configurations. I abandon this software.
