Sampling from Vinyl

Hello Slutz,

if i sample from Vinyl the samples lack in the lowend. Im not sure if it is the cartridge or the phono preamp.

I use a Technics Turntable into an project phono box 2 into my interface. The cartridge is an Excel 70 S. After reading about cartridges i thought that the cartridge could be the problem? First i thought the preamp is the problem so i upped the PSU Caps to have a better bass response and changed the opamps for NE5534 it helped for a better sound but the lowend is still not punchy and fat enough.

What could be the problem in my samplig chain? Which cartridges could you recommend for sampling?

I would definately change the needle or cartridge. Also if theres a lot of dust on your records it will affect the bass. I use Shure m44-7's (they have bass and treble boost - that classic sound of a hip hop show).
