Hello,
I am VERY new to this and I was very pleased with how intuitive the trial djDecks demo program was. However, the only thing I was unable to test and understand before the trial version timed out was the recording function. When I tried to record a song I had mixed, the program showed that it was creating a file called 'test.mp3' however the file on my computer was being called 'test.cue' and that file type was then impossible for me to open. Where did the mp3 go? I have heard that there is an option for creating different audio files (wav, aif, mp3 etc) but I did not see these options anywhere in the trial version.
What am I missing here? I would happily buy the program, if I can be sure that I will be able to create mp3s of the music I am mixing.
It doesn't look like anyone else on the message boards has had to ask this basic question, so clearly I am just missing something obvious. Please help.

Thanks for your time.
Crystal

if it's a cue file that got saved, you can open it with a text-editor since it contains TEXT :)
(now you're probably confused... why would the result of a mix contain text?)
well.... here goes the explanation...
a cue file is a file that contains info for cd burning software, however when your mix is longer that the length of a cd you'll have no use for it...
open the cue file in a text editor, and on top you should see the location of the recorded audio file, and it's type...
on the next lines you'll see all the tracks that are in the mix, and the time position on which they start...

hope this helps
Grtz

Also, when you clicked the record button, you should have seen a file save dialog asking you the file name, location and file type of the file that you want to record.
The .mp3 file should be stored in the same location as the .cue file.
