I have a Fission USB Turntable (purchased from Aldi about a decade ago). I’m trying to set it up so I can rip old LPs. My MbP has only USB-C ports so I connected the turntable via an Anker hub. I’m using Audacity software. The instructions that came with the turntable are 10 years old and useless. Audacity has up-to-date instructions in their wiki.
The turntable is recognised by the Mac and by Audacity and when I play an LP I can hear faint music through the pickup. When I try to record I get a flat line in Audacity. After lots of experimentation I’ve decided the issue is probably the use of the hub - which Audacity advises not to use. My questions therefore are - would a USB-C to USB adapter get around this problem? and what is the issue with hubs anyway?
