Audio 8 DJ & Multicore timecode

Hi !, I have bought a used Audio 8 DJ, I have the Windows 10 (x64) operating system, using the multicore and timecode cables in Traktor 2 scratch pro I receive a very low signal and I cannot calibrate correctly, I have all the correct configuration, correct cable connections and I use everything necessary. I I have tried doing the same using an Audio 6 mk1 using normal rca cables and I receive a good signal to calibrate timecode.


I have looked to see if there are Audio 8 DJ drivers available for my Windows 10 operating system and there are none available for download, there are only up to Windows 8


My question is: is it possible that I am not receiving the correct signal for timecode due to incompatibility with my operating system?, where can I find drivers for Windows 10 (x64)?, I hope you can help me please, thank you, regards.

    Audio 8 is not longer supoorted from Ni. Switch to an audio 6 or 10 with MK2 Timecode Signal

    The audio 8 should still work on windows, even though it's no longer supported.

    Is the pre-amp on?

    I have tried connecting the cables from my turntable directly to the audio 8 and it calibrates well, it seems that the multicore cables are in bad condition (I am surprised that they both fail) or the problem may be that the latest version of the audio 8 driver is not compatible for multicore cables in Windows 10

    I don't know how exactly it works, but the input mode toggle has to be set to DVS vinyl, and not line level. If the light on the top is yellow it means it's set to CD/Line mode. Orange is phono mode, and green is timecode vinyl mode. You want green. That will boost the signal by +18 dB


    Also only channel 1,2 and 3,4 support phono if I understand the manual right.

    So I have it configured, I put it on phono and on vinyl control and there is no good signal and it does not calibrate

    Is there a difference in signal strength you see in traktor between phono and vinyl control mode? The little bar that shows up in input routing.

    And can you share a screenshot of the scope?

    there is no difference between phono and “control vinyl”, low signal in both.

    I have followed the steps in this tutorial to make the connections of my multicore cable, I have done everything correctly:

    Almost looks like no input at all.

    is possible multicore cables may be in bad condition

    Maybe. Just try with regular cables?

    With normal cables everything works correctly, but I want to use multicore cables

    It works with regular cables and a8?

    Well then we know the interface and software is working.

    Maybe you connected them wrong?

    The cables are well connected: the “mixer line in” cable in “line in” of my mixer, the “mixer t t/cd” cable in “phono in” of my mixer, the “audio 8 DJ input” cable in “In channel A” of audio 8, the “audio 8 output” cable in “out channel A”, all this repeated with the second turntable.

    Works with normal cables and a8, yes
