Hi everybody!• My name is Marcin, I’m 24 years old and I’m from Poland.• In this assignment I’ll be teaching you how to record an electric instrument focusing on the turntable and mixer.
Step 1: Connecting turntable with mixer
The first thing you need to do is to connect your turntable to your mixer.You have to use the stereo RCA cable with attached ground wires.Grounding a turntable helps you avoid the humming noise caused byelectric interference so don’t forget to screw the ground wires with thegrounding screws.Then connect the RCA male ends with their female versions on bothturntable and mixer.
• Remember that turntable will work only with phono inputs on the back of your mixer so don’t hook it up with line inputs .
Step 2: Connecting mixer with an audio interface.
• Now in order to get the signal out of a mixer you need to connect it to your audio interface by using the stereo RCA – ¼ inch TS cable
Put the TS jacks to an audio interfacepreamps and plug the RCA endings to line outputs of your mixer.
Step 3: Record• Press record on your DAW• Now play a record and smoothly adjust the gain knobs on both mixer and audio interface. Remember to not go into red on either one of them.
Step 4: Enjoy!
