I’m not an expert and I haven’t looked at audio interfaces in a while, so take my advice with a grain of salt.

When I stream, I run my DDJ-SX2 out of the RCA Master 2 into a Roland Tri-Capture, which is an older interface, but you can see what it looks like:


I experience the same high pitch whine you do, though to a lesser extent, but I’m able to eliminate it by balancing levels between my DJ deck and the audio interface. If you can increase your signal/noise ratio, that will make a huge difference. You might even be able to do this with a combination of the level knobs on your mixer.

Looking at your mixer now though, you might have better results running audio out of your digital outputs. Essentially, what an audio interface is doing is it’s converting the analog audio from your mixer into a digital signal for your PC. Since your mixer has a digital output, it might be worth trying before spending money on more equipment.

That said, an audio interface is a good investment since it can do a lot. I use mine to drive my studio monitors and record mics/guitar/DJ deck. Not a bad idea to pick one up.

Hope this helps.

I have a Roland Tri-Capture, currently going for $119.00 on Amazon. I’ve had it for about a year, no complaints.

Even though you don’t have any recording needs right now, it’s something that’s good to have. It would be super annoying to have to buy something different in a year because you want to record some vocals/guitar/etc.
