I'm sure it's been done before, but can someone provide a *DETAILED* description of how to set up DAX and Audicity to record the received audio from a Flex 6700?  I tried and failed miserably. Thanks and 73, Bob  WA4FOM

    Set up for Dax Audio RX1 and set the Dax to channel 1 on the flag Dax setting
    Set Dax Audio TX flex radio
    turn on Dax TX on the Dax control panel to transmit
    Press the Dax button on the right panel under the +ACC

    If you turn Vox on and set right, when you press play in Audacity it will transmit

    Sorry, no joy.  "DAX Audio RX 1" doesn't exist on my setup.

    None of the replies have helped so far.  I appear to be missing something.  While I really do appreciate the replies, could someone provide a ****-by-**** description that assumes the idiot (me) has never, ever used DAX before, and only know of Dax as in Jadzia Dax from Star Trek.  Thanks much for your patience.

    We have told you what you need to know. In the Audacity program under the record tab there should be Audio RX1 on the long list.
    on SSDR set DAX1 in the flag.
    You did install Audacity on you SSDR computer?

    Are there no RX anything on the list?

    Hi, it seems, that your DAX device setup is not right. Check the available devices in Windows vs. Audacity. You should see the same devices. Select in your slice the dax channel and check in the dax software, that the channel is active. Then you should be able to map it in Audacity too... If no audio, check input gain... If still no audio, then check your Windows version... Perhaps 1803... Then check other thread with this Windows version. BR Ruediger

    Just a few things,
    Did the DAX Drivers get installed correctly and do you have DAX running? 
    check your sound devices and make sure you have a bunch of DAX entries showing up in both Output and Input devices and there is no errors in your audio devices in Device manager.

    Despite my obvious severe mental deficiencies, I did manage to get it to work (finally).  I updated from my prehistoric version of Audacity to the latest, which I'm sure had something to do with it.  I selected as the input device "DAX Audio RX 1(FlexRadio Systems) and the line in for my sound card as the output device.  I suspect most of the folks assumed I wanted to feed the recorded audio back into the rig to retransmit it, which, in all fairness, is the usual case.  No.  I just want to save it as an MP3 and listen to it.  With my selection, I was able to immediately replay the recorded audio as desired.
    Thanks to all for your input.  Mission accomplished in spite of the Eye-Dee-Ten-Tee errors on this end.  73, Bob  WA4FOM

    That is good news Bob, and remember you can do other things with it as well, such as recording your own audio to play it back. I use it to record my CQ calling to play over the air,,it really saves the voice cords. As soon as I press play it transmits. Have fun!!
