    Where to the Preston show ?


    It looks like hes outputing Ableton via USB to the Audio 8 and has 2 channels going out of the Audio 8 into the mixer plus a midi connection to the mixer. The DJM 800 mixer is midi enabled.

    The CDJs are direct into the Mixer so im guessing hes not using the CDJs inconjunction with any software.
    Doesnt mention Traktor at all so i guess it just Ableton .

    Pioneer FX and Korg linked via effect Send & Return.

    phono is for turntables.
    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

    Yeah RCA leads/Phono leads/Cinch cables (whatever term is used where you live) to the mixer.

    Check that the RCA leads fit because the connections on the Audio 8 are quite shallow making the RCA unable to fit deep enough into the Audio 8 and they can fall out.
    This is a common problem when not using the Muliticore cables.

    The solution is to trim (with a sharp blade) or pull back the plastic sleeve of the rca lead so it can go deeper into the Audio 8.
    Buying good leads is always a good idea as they seem to have longer connections.
