    Default NI Multicore Cables

    Can anyone clear up for me what i need to purchase to allow connection for 2 turntables and two cdjs and djm600 with the audio 8 when i upgrade to scratch pro.

    I can't be 100% from reading things on various websites.

    It appears one cable may onmy be half the setup ? so does that mean i need 8 cables in total ? If so at 24 a pop that aint cheap!

    Cheers

    No mate you dont need more mulitcores, not for the CDJs.

    Connect your decks up as usual with the multicores (A & B)
    Connect your CDJs with the cables to Inputs (C & D) 5/6 & 7/8 and just use normal RCA/Phono cables for the output.
    Cus they are CD channels you dont need to switch over to use vinyl so the multicore isnt needed.

    One thing to note. Is that the Audio 8 connectors are quite shallow so whatever cables you buy make sure you can either take it back or you are able to slice off a small circular section of the plastic covering so that they fit in firmly or they could fall out.

    To be honest its best to buy a really cheapo pair of RCA and bodge them at first.

    Yeah ive already had to do that with a few. Will this setup allow me to play my cdjs without having my laptop on though ?

    Yeah it will play straight through. You can select Audio Through on the Input Selector on channels C & D (pull down over the Deck Letters in Traktor) and you will be sweet.

    Noooooo, i want to be able to play my cdjs without even thinking about turning on the laptop. I thought this was what the multicore cables were for.

    Well then you just hook your CDJs to your mixer..?
    Or dont you use a mixer?

    Audio 8 will only work when USB powered by the laptop so the laptop has to be on.

    The mulicores are for using timecode vinyl alongside regular vinyl.

    I dont think the Audio 8 has through-put when not powered. Never tried it .

    Ill have a look.

    Yeah got a djm600

    what i wanted was the option to plug everything (2 decks and 2 cdjs) in and have the option of using with timecode through traktor or as standard without turning my laptop on.

    Is this possible?

    no surely not , is that not the whole idea of the multicore cables ? If not what is the point of them?

    not sure what the first part of you're response was referring to?

    i found this about the cables:

    s the cable is specially wired, the phono signal is always routed, allowing you to play traditional vinyl without connecting the Audio 8 DJ.
    i think this is what you are looking for but not sure where that leaves you for using cd-js, if there is also a thru line signal or not...
