Hello, I read the forum and the instructions and usually fairly good with computers.
This should be fairly easy, but for whatever reason i’m wondering if the soundcard is damaged or i’m missing something basic?
Goal: stream dj mix to twitch via OBS.
Problem: audio is in mono, volume is low, even tho master is cranked, and quality is very weak.
Mac OS High Sierra
2 x cd decks to DJM mixer
I’ve connected my pioneer djm mixer from master to line 5. (2 rca left/right to single output to Line 5).
I had some intial problems getting the drivers installed, but finally got them working.
Within OBS, I get a mono recording and it’s very quiet, but it does detect the audio. I downloaded audacity, and can see it records in mono when I record all 6 channels at once, but the audio quality doesn’t sound very good and it’s fairly quiet. I will attach a number of screenshots and photos b/c I think that will be quicker.
Note, i’ve tried different outputs from my my mixer. I rented this sound card, so it’s second hand, and wondering if there’s a problem with audio quality. I would assume, even if in mono and just one channel, it would be loud and sound clear?

Also, when I try audio quality, the “cable 1” with rca to single, the quality is lower versus use cable 2. I don’t know if that’s a setting, or b/c the cable is damaged and reducing quality?
When I turn up the volume using DSPMIX it doesn’t have much impact on volume. On my mixer, I’ve tried outputs on master and record. When it’s played over my monitor, it’s very very loud. Mixer is orange and almost red lining and still very low volume.
