    You need to ground. The best point to ground is the mixer.
    At least that's my experience.

    Thanks for the help TeLLy and Real_Blackroom.
    One more question, my mixer is a 4 channel mixer but has only 2 ground pins on channel 1 and 2.
    Channel 3 and 4 also have phono inputs but no ground pins,
    i want to use channel 2 and 3 for midi becase this is the way NUO 4 is designed but can i put the ground of channel 4 to channel 1?

    short version

    Can ground from 2 turntables be shared on one channel on a mixer or each has to be on a separate channel?
    :s
    Thanks for you time

    you can ground multiple turntables to one ground.

    Yes, ground from 2 decks can be shared on one post. They both lead to the same spot.
