    I have Traktor Scratch Duo. I use a Pioneer DJM-700 2-channel mixer and Pioneer CDJ-200's.

    It recognizes my timecode CD's and stop/starts the track on the application when I hit stop/start on my CDJ's. So, this is good.

    Now, my problem is sound. All I get is that loud hissing tone from the timecoded CDs, not my music.

    Each channel of my 2-channel mixer has 2 RCA segments, one reading "Phono/Line" and "CD". Now, since I'm only using CDJ's, which ports on the mixer do I plug into? "Phono/Line"? "CD"? Both? And, which cables go where?

    Thanks,
    DKF

    If you're on Phono/line, set the input to Line level.

    The hiss you hear is the timecode in itself so unless you have multicore cables , it should not arrive to your mixer

    Basically your setup should be:

    CDJ plugged to Line in on the audio 4
    Audio 4 out plugged to Line or CD input on the mixer

    If you have multicore cable, "thru" segment should be plugged to another Line or CD input and you could switch from direct CD sound to Traktor

    Cool, thanks man.

    What do you mean by this?

    "If you have multicore cable, "thru" segment should be plugged to another Line or CD input and you could switch from direct CD sound to Traktor"

    Also, "Phono/Line" is one input "CD" is the other. I understand that most mixers are "Phono" and "CD/Line". So, in my scenario, what would "Set the input to line level" mean?

    Well you could have Phono AND line on the same plug with a small switch to change the input level.

    With multicore cable, you can have a derivation to have direct sound from you decks (vinyl or CD) going to the mixer which can be handy if the erson playin before and after you ar using plain vinyl or CD for example in a "party" condition.
