Scarlett headphones out to mono

I assembled a cable as described in Mike Senior's "Mixing Secrets" book to hook up an Avantone 5c to one of the headphones output of my Scarlett 18i8.
Via two 470ohm resistors this cable should supply a decent mono signal for the avatone coming from the headphones out.

Unfortunally I get a severe hum coming from the main outputs as soon as I attach the cable (which works fine!) to the headphones output.

Should I use bigger resistors, ad a capacity or....??

any advice very welcome

stay safe y'all

Bought a Mackie Big knob to provide the right switching, after some troubleshooting and a little forum help everything works a breeze now :-D
