Using Traktor Pro Scratch/Timecode vinyl with an Ecler Warm2 DJ Mixer & Focusrite Clarett+ 8 Pre?

Hi,


I've recently began using Traktor with timecode vinyl again - in the past I have used an Allen&Heath Xone 96 DJ mixer (Traktor Certified) for Timecode vinyl use, and now I own an Ecler Warm2 rotary DJ mixer (analog) hoping to use it with a Focusrite Clarett+ 8 Pre USB audio interface - can this be done? Alternatively, is there another 19" rackmount interface I can use instead?


Thank you 😀

    No, wrong way. Your interface needs line not phono. Thr chain had to be in this order: Turntable > Pre Amp / Converter > Clarett > Warm

    you need an interface with phono preamps if your turntables can't output a line signal.

    Hoping for either suggestions of a potential work around, or a 19" rackmount interface that will provide the solution I'm wanting

    you can also install a phono / line converter in your signal chain befor you go to the scarlett. that's how it's done with your current setup and just a bit of extra costs. you can find relatively good and cheap converters easily on the net.


    here just random as example:

    Wouldn't the Ecler Warm2 do the phono conversion before hitting the Scarlett interface??
