Bug Description

Mixxx automatically creates an empty folder (Mixxx/Recordings) inside the music Library.
I think the location should be configurable, and only create it the first time a user wishes to record (preferably after user interaction).

Attached is a patch which adds a library preference to set recordings folder to config key "Recording","Directory". The setting is modified from the 'Recordings' configuration page.

Initially when user has not selected a setting for this folder, we construct the current path (Mixxx/Recordings under music library) and set it as default value in configuration.

The patch checks and changes recording folder whenever user clicks on the 'Recordings' sidebar after changing the folder in preferences.

Patch is against trunk as of today (2012-04-21).

It might be good idea to set a default value in new install configurations to something like $HOME/Music/Mixxx/Recordings instead of writing by default to user's music library: this however is not relevant for this patch.

This doesn't seem to work for me on a linux box.
It always writes to the directory from where mixxx was launched.
The directory in UI and in .cfg file is irrelevant.

I can confirm that. I think there were some lines lost during commit.
Fixed in lp:mixxx #3172

The fix from #4 work only if you choose a custom Recording Directory. Per default Mixxx still writes to the program directory. See lp:1000067
