DJ patch
 
I have posted something similar on the audio board so forgive me if you see this twice.

What is the usual method for patching into the DJ? My thought was going into my mixer then to a wireless off to the cam to stay mobile. Good?

Next question is what can I expect to connect to the board with?

Thanks folks!

Mike

Mike: we don't allow crossposting so I have removed the other version of this. Let me know if you would prefer to have this post moved to the audio forum, and thanks for your understanding

Err, sorry, I just realized what I did and went to delete it. You beat me to it. Won't happen again!

If the patch is to your own mixer, take a line/record out of the DJ's board into one of your high impedance stereo channels (they are usually the ones on the right side of small mixing boards). You won't have to do any impedance matching, although you may need a couple of RCA to 1/4" adapters as the DJ's out is likely RCA and you IN is probably going to be 1/4".

Once you have a good wireless feed, don't let anyone touch the settings on your mixer.

Well my mixer is XLR in but you answered my question anyway - RCA. I guess it pays to have a couple of XLR, RCA and 1/4" adapters in the bag.

Thanks!

Unless you are dealing with a field mixer or one of those small 4 channel units intended for use in permanent ballroom PA systems, all other mixer designs I have ever seen provide XLR and 1/4" inputs on some, if not all channels. The recent trend in small desk-top mixers is to provide something like a 60/40 mix. Three XLR/1/4" mono channel faders and two stereo channel 1/4" only faders, for example. This allow the manufacturer to advertise the product as a seven channel mixer (eight if one counts the non-adjustable RCA record in/out channel).
