SetUp 3rd Party Software
Due to the nature of Apple's operating system, if you are not using an external mixer and microphone, you will need to use 3rd Party software. In this guide we show you how to use AudioHijack. This software is free to download and trial, but in order to use for longer than 20 minutes it requires a one-time fee of £50/$70.
Can't afford to pay? If you cannot afford the cost of the 3rd party software you may instead want to invest into a Mixer and Microphone - if you do you can use our internal free software. Learn how to do this on our Forum. Alternatively if you have access to a Windows PC or laptop it's simple and free to DJ or present without any external equipment - Go Here
