When I connect my vinyl turntables to my phono/line inputs, I keep getting a low signal sound regardless how much I adjust my gain. What should I do?
It is recommend that users connect the AMX to the USB port closest to their power supply. This USB port will draw the most power to their AMX controller. Since the AMX controller doesn't have a power supply, it only draws power from the USB port.
Can you try a usb hub or in the worst case another audio interface?
I used to have the same problem with my maya44, & that was also becouse the lvl's where too low.

Check the timecode tab on the options window and use calibrate there.
Look at the signal there to see if the signal is entering your computer clean. If not you may have to adjust gain, or check for cables or ground loop issues.

Brand new out of the box VDJ8 TimeCodes (White)
TT's - SL1200
New Pitch on both TT's & adjusted to specs.
Latency at 8ms
Pitch Quality at 0
timecodeAntiSkip - 3
timecodeNeedleDropSync - NO
timecodePitchSliderIgnorBend - NO
timecodeSilence - 0.180000
It only happens when the pitch is at +2, +3 & +4 on both TTs with Both VDJ8 TimeCodes.
It doesn't happen with Serato V2 Time Codes. I tested 4 Serato V2 Time Codes on both TT's and pitch was steady from -8 to +8.
You know what they say, if is not on video, it never happen.

Maybe check the connection of the needle.
It is strange that it's happening with vdj records but not serato records.
Could you make a recording of the timecode directly and post that?

What you mean, like ripping the vinyl to MP3? If that's what you mean I'll do recording at 0 pitch and at +2 where the problem shows up.
Will check connections as you suggest.

I never get fluctuations when I use my TT's. Everything is spot on.
I don't believe you but if you say its working for you great. I for one have never not had fluctuations when using VDJ starting from ver.5 and it was the same on my 1200's, PLX's and my Relook 8000's.
I find myself riding the pitch most of the night when using VDJ but with SDJ its pretty much spot on.......

Tried it on 2 different set ups:
- Tech 1200's with a Z2 mixer
- Stanton ST150 with an S9 mixer
Pitch Control set at -2.

The audio in the example above sounded fine to me, and it was mentioned in another thread about fluctuations that Serato round off their timecode display to make it look smooth, whereas presumably VDJ doesn't.
