I've been troubleshooting my setup for over a week now and Im slowing going crazy! I really hope someone out there can help!
I've been using the Stanton DJC.4 as a midi controller with Traktor Pro for about 6 months, and now I would like to incorporate my two Stanton C314 cd players into my setup. I upgraded to Traktor Scratch Pro 2, and purchased the latest Traktor timecode cds. When I hook everything up, my decks in Traktor show up as "Scratch Disabled", and in the configure window under Timecode Setup, all four decks show up as "Off". When I hit play on my cd players, I can see a small blue wave showing up beside each scratch calibrate circle in either deck, but it's looks like the signal is weak or broken. I've triple checked all my connections, I think the problem is lying in my configuration within Traktor, but I have no idea where. If anyone out there has any info to share that would be amazing. I go into details of my setup and configuration below, i've also attached a PDF of screencaps to make things clearer.
- My cd players are connected to my DJC.4 via RCA cables, from the cd players' audio out's to the DJC.4 audio inputs 1 & 2.
- I have both inputs set to "Line", and the PC/Thru toggle switch is set to PC.
- The input 1 toggle switch is set to "Input 1/2", and the input 2 toggle switch is set to "Input 3/4"
- I'm confident the cd players are connected correctly, and I have tested input 1 by switching the PC/Thru toggle to "Thru", and I am able to hear the timecodes high-pitched tone come through when I play cd player 1.
- (See screencap 1) In Traktor's preferences, under Audio Setup, I have the audio device set to DJC.4 (note that Phono/Line Input Channels show "Not Supported". I have seen this in other configurations, so I don't think this is the issue).
- (See screencap 2) Under Output Routing, my Mixing Mode is set to Internal, and my Output Monitor and Master are set to Back L/R and Front L/R, the same as when I use the DCJ.4 as a midi controller.
- (See screencaps 3, 4, 5 & 6) Under Input Routing, since there are only 4 options available in the dropdown, I select the first two for Deck A, and the second two for Deck B. This is not particularly intuitive, but when I test out each cd player one at a time, I do see a blue audio level showing up in each deck respectfully, which leads me to think this may be correct.
- (See screencaps 7) Under Timecode Setup, all four Decks are showing up as "OFF" for Timecode Inputs. I can see no way to change these, only select Scratch Control (which is currently selected) or Internal Playback.
