    Record vinyl on to laptop via mixer and audio interface

    Hi,

    Apologies if this has been answered before (i did search), but i am trying to record my old 90's house/techno vinyl to my laptop so that i can use them with my controller. Currently i have a Technics 1200 mk2 connected to an old Behringer DJX700 which is connected to a Cambridge Audio amp. I bought a Focusrite Scarlett Solo 3rd gen usb audio interface as i was told this was all i needed but i am not sure how to connect everything together or even if i need an audio interface just to record vinyl to my lap top.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Many thanks,
    Harry

    I'm in the process of doing this myself with a very similar setup.

    I'm not familiar with that Focusrite, but if I'm not mistaken it looks to accept a stereo 1/4" jack so you're going to need a Y adapter - right and left RCA's to single 1/4" stereo jack. Plug the RCA's into the Tape out from the mixer to the 1/4" on your Scarlet then the USB to your laptop.

    As for recording software; Audacity is good and it's free to download. Link: https://www.audacityteam.org/. It's what I'm currently using and have no complaints - it's pretty easy to use.

    Post up any further questions should you have any.
