Analog turntable

1. Plug the stereo output of your turntable to the channels 1 and 2 of your sound card (RCA cable in general). Several setups are possible, depending on your turntable :
  1. If your turntable has a stereo line output, you can plug it directly to your sound card.
  2. If your turntable only has a stereo phono output, you have two possibilities :
    1. Use a sound card with phono inputs (integrated phono preamplifier).
    2. Use a stereo phono preamplifier between your turntable and the line-level inputs of your sound card.
2. Open Mixfader DJ on your device.

3. Connect the sound card to the device thanks to the USB-host cable

4. Turn your turntable on and insert your timecoded or audio vinyl

5.  A pop-up window should appear to help you setup the turntable. Select the deck your want to target and your timecoded vinyl type.
For now, Mixfader DJ supports the following timecode formats:
  • Serato 2nd Edition Side A
  • Serato 2nd Edition Side B

You plugged your timecode or audio vinyl set-up and you don’t hear anything coming from your device ?

  • Use an external audio output
Please plug a headset or speakers with a jack-cable.
 
  • Use your device as the audio output
1 - Unplug your turntable
2 - Enable ‘Disable USB audio routing’ in the developer options
3 - Repeat the setup process




How to Access the Developer Options Menu

To enable Developer Options:
 
1 - Open the settings screen, scroll down to the bottom, and tap “About phone” or “About tablet”.
2 - Scroll down to the bottom of the “About screen” and find the Build number.
3 - Tap the Build number field seven times to enable Developer Options. Tap a few times and you will see a toast notification with a countdown that reads “You are now X steps away from being a developer.”
4 - When you’re done, you’ll see the message “You are now a developer!”.
5 - Tap the back button and you’ll see the Developer options menu just above the “About Phone” section in Settings. This menu is now enabled on your device—you won’t have to repeat this process again unless you perform a factory reset.
 
You are scratching with timecode and the moves don’t seem to be adequate?
 
Please verify that you selected the accurate type of vinyl before scratching. You can check the current configuration in the application’s settings. Every change you make will be immediately applied so that you can hear the result.
 
Also, keep in mind that only the following vinyl types are currently supported:
  • Serato 2nd Edition Side A
  • Serato 2nd Edition Side B
  • Serato CD1
  • Tracktor MK1 Side A
  • Tracktor MK1 Side B
If you want to use an audio vinyl, simple choose Audio Vinyl.
 

Besides, if the timecode signal level is too low or saturates somewhere in your setup, the timecode precision won’t be at its best. If you have an output gain on your turntable, or input gains on your sound card and/or preamplifier, please make sure that the signal levels are close to maximum but do not saturate
 

Some buttons are greyed and you cannot use them?
 
Timecode
 
You will not be able to use the play and the pitch buttons on your deck. Those are disabled, and you will be able to manage those functions directly from your turntable.
However, you can still manage the volume, the cue, the loop, and the effects on your deck.
 
Real vinyl
 
Some buttons are disabled on your deck, such as play, pitch, hot cue, loop and the echo effect.
 
Also please note, that if you are trying to select a track into your library, a pop-up window will appear to inform you that your audio vinyl will be disconnected.
 
You will not be able to see any spectrum, since you are using an audio vinyl as an external audio output.
