No bass when recording

Hi when I record of my dj decks the low end just more or less disappears, I’m going from a pioneer djm700 2x RCA to quater jack into a focusrite 2i2 preamp then usb from pre amp to MacBook any help so fustrating ?!?

Please post a short sample in (stereo) WAV format to illustrate the problem.
(See here for help with how to do that:

Hi there,

Are you using balanced or unbalanced cables?

Does this occur through the direct monitor function of the 2i2?

What OS are you using?
