2 channel low profile soundcard with rca outputs?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Is this a thing? I cant seem to find one anywhere!

Use: mobile dj with a rackmount computer. I have no need for the 5.1 or 7.1 or 15.1 or whatever, I just need 2 channels over rca to put into the mixer.

I have been using headphone to rca converter cables, but I grow to hate them every gig... especially when one fails and I cant find a replacement.

No I dont want a usb dj soundcard, Just more things to get bumped by the drunk guy requesting the cha cha slide for the 8th time. Trying to get all of my equipment into safe rackmount storage.

My Xonar Essance has two channel RCA out.

This is interesting. I could use something like this as long as it has MIDI input too. smile.gif

http://www.m-audio.com/products/view/delta-44#.VqkBvh9xpmM - this may suit musicians more, with TRS sockets

Low profile - https://www.techpowerup.com/189693/diamond-multimedia-presents-the-xtreme-sound-7-1-pcie-sound-card.html

It's 7.1, but has a second slot with 2 RCA's, so it may fit the bill?

The first one would be perfect, but its not a low profile card frown.gif

the second would work too, but again not low pro

The third fits the bill except for that the 2 rca jacks are for coax in/out

I guess my needs on this are a little more unique so there may not be a huge market for something like this outside of a recording studio... Most DJs just run laptops But since I want to branch off into karaoke and playing outdoor movies I need the massive disk space that the rackmount can get me

RCA connections aren't designed to be constantly plugged and unplugged on a regular basis. That's why pro gear NEVER uses them for anything. XLR or TRS 1/4" plugs are standard for good reasons.

If you have a rack-mounted computer, amplifier, etc., and want to stay away from headphone jack connections - then a USB rack-mounted pro audio interface sounds like the BEST solution.

This can serve as your mixer, mic pre-amp for your mics, and output interface from your PC.

Intrigued how you can legally rip and play movies outdoors. Unless we're talking home movies here -- getting broadcast rights for playing DVD/blu-ray rips in public is very expensive.

I wouldnt be unplugging them, the computer and the mixer reside in the same skb rack, while the amps and crossovers reside in another rack that goes under my table.

I guess for the time being (till I can save up some more money for that scarlett) I will use the USB on my mixer.

Yes it is very expensive, but it would be a neighborhood thing for the kids, not a business thing... so should be the same as iff I invited the neighbors over to watch the movie on our tv. Except I will be inviting them to my backyard to play on the giant projection system.
