    Default Are these the correct cables?

    I'm hoping my fellow DJTT's can help me out. In a couple days I'm going to have to connect my setup into a xone 32 mixer and need help on which converters I need.

    Current Setup:
    Motu Ultralite firewire 12 (1/4") in 14 (1/4") Out
    MBP OSX
    VCI-100


    I figured I would just use the left & right rca wires from the mixer into the back of my soundcard. I bought these rca-1/4" stereo adapters but I'm not sure if they will work. Do I need the rca-1/4" stereo or rca-1/4" mono?
    Channel A will be set to 1&2
    Channel B will be set to 3&4

    each 1/4 output is mono, u will use 4 outputs for 2 stereo outs, so u need two cables each have two 1/4" on one side and two rca on the other end
    We don't believe in the star system. We want the focus to be on the music. If we have to create an image, it must be an artificial image. That combination hides our physicality and also shows our view of the star system. It is not a compromise-daftpunk

    i should have asked if you plan on mixing internal with the vci100 or externally on the mixer?

    I was assuming you were planning on mixing externally, but if you are doing it internally then you only need one of the above cables.

    Wait... why would he need four cables to run into two cables?
    It's the FAQ. Read it.
