Hi sepyo.

The Numark total control isn't a normal DJ mixer, but rather a MIDI controller. There isn't the internal audio mixing architecture, so there is nothing that the SL 3 outputs can be plugged into and the audio mixed with.

You can use it as a MIDI controller for for functions in Scratch Live alongside your turntables, but you will need a DJ mixer as well as your current setup.

Sepyo. You will need a real mixer... but you can do:

1. Connect SL3 to your laptop
2. technic 1200 mk2 turntables to the INPUT on SL3
3. Connect your total control to your laptop and assign MIDI controls.
You will NOT have any sound output because you're missing a mixer.

What are you wanting to control with the fader in Scratch Live?

You may want to go to the Virtual DJ forum and ask help on how to set that up if that is what you are wanting?

Otherwise you can use the Total Control as a MIDI controller, but you will need a normal audio DJ mixer to mix the audio as there is no internal audio mixing (Virtual DJ does, which is what the video shows).
