Phono routing to DAW thru Big Knob
      #1019938 - 23/11/12 01:49 PM
Hi... Searched high and low for an answer to this and i'm sure it's common sense... I'm trying to route the phono input from mackie Big Knob to the DAW input on the same unit so i can record and sample vinyl in my DAW. I'm using saffire pro 40 and ableton live. Everything else works fine on the Big Knob... two sets of speakers hooked up and outputs of saffire, CD player and tape deck into the three inputs... Suspect the answer is in the routing buttons, but i can't figure it out... phono plays fine thru speakers but not registering on audio inputs of a stereo channel in ableton live... thanks in advance and hope i made myself clear x

You mean the DAW output?

...just double-checking that you were connecting your DAW's input to the "DAW Output" section on the Mackie, and not the "DAW Input" section...

You say you've also got a CD player and tape deck hooked up to the Mackie...are you able to get a signal registering in the DAW from them...? Ie, is this specifically a phono problem, or are you not able to get audio via the Mackie into the DAW at all...?

From the manual it sounds like all you should need to do is select phono as the input source, and it should send it to the DAW output jacks.

Connect DAW output sockets on BK to line inputs on you interface and set your DAW software to record those inputs. Select phono input as source on BK. job done.
