  1. Hi, I have an audio interface to mixer to monitors. If I add a Pioneer DDJRB to my setup can I still use my interface? Thanks

  2. My mixer has a built in audio interface but should i get an external audio interface? dose it sound better? I got a DDJ sx2 btw

  3. the pioneer rx xdj is the best controller out there thats what I have brilliant peice of kit in my opinion. and you can use usb too

  4. hey guys just a question; Do i really need to buy the expensive traktor soundcards (such as the A10) in order to let my cdj's work with the software or are there anny alternatives. i looked on the world wide web, but could not get a propper answer

  5. hi,

    i use ddj sx and there is no problem while i use laptop for playing a music, but when i use my PC there is no sound output, and the master level is off, do you know the problem ? or is it my default pc sound card ? because in the sound properties on the " recording tab" supposedly microphone is set as a default, but in my pc it explained "not plugged in", i put the link to describe that, pardon for my english. thanks

    for information i use windows 7

  6. So, let me see if I got this right: I need ONE extra audio interface besides the one that comes in my computer? I saw another video that says I need TWO audio interfaces… 🙁 Oh, and my controller is a DJ Control Compact from Hercules.

  7. I have a studio standard mic with the Rode Microphone and I wish to use that as my mic as my main mic for when i dj and do interviews but i can't seem to get sound to work real time as i speak, it only records it and i have to play it back how can i fix it?

  8. 1. Seven and a half minutes and you are repeating the same thing again and again.
    2. If the instruction manual, which you repeatedly refer to, was clear then we wouldn't be here watching this video in the first place.
    3. Instead of repeating "Why" we need the audio interface it would help if you actually showed "How" to do it.

  9. I'm new to dj'ing. I have Traktor Kontrol S2, HP200 laptop (crappy , I know). Iv'e been using the Traktor itself as my soundcard, but wanted a little extra to help with latency and improve sound quality. I purchased KA6. Everything I'm finding suggests I bought the wrong card. Seems it should have been a Traktor Audio product instead. Can I use the KA6 as an external soundcard and route sound through it?

  10. i have a numark USB mixtrack pro 2 and idk how to hear both tracks would u suggest buying a soundcard..maybe even a usb soundcard with headphone and microphone inputs for my computer? someone reply Pleaseeeeeee

  11. I have a Scarlett 2i2 interface with a numark mix track 3 I can control the track but I can't hear the track on my MacBook Air idk what the problem is

  12. You just saved me a lot of money thank you so much! Didn't know if my hercules RMX 2 had a built in audio interface.

  13. why i cannot connect my controler in a virtual software ?error soundcard directx..i already set it up but still not working.reintal same probllem..any  situation like this?advice pls thnks

  14. am sorry but u can use one headphone jack out to run two channels basicly u run in mono and u used vdj / traktor and split the single on the programs left channel on the headphone jack deck a right channel on the headphone jack deck b u have t use a external mixer to do this and use a mixer to monitor and u do need a few adapters to do this aka single rca to 2 rca's two of those into a rca to 3.5mm jack adapter and ur left with 2 red rca's and 2 white rca's aka left and right channel and run it in mono 🙂 but sound card do sound better I do this with a single headphone out usb sound card so no feedback from laptop 🙂

  15. My problem I am having is I'm using Virtual Dj and I am getting my sound to come out of my speakers and the other song playing on my head phones but when I want to transition to the other song it doesn't play it? How do I get it to transition to the next song smoothly without having to switch which sound comes out of main speakers or headphones help plz!!!!!

  16. I recently emailed virtual dj on this issue about my music dragging. I have to restart the program in order for this to stop. They told me I have  sound card issue with my MacBook pro that I bought in October. Should I buy an audio interface? Please help

  17. I would of thought that due to laptop soundcard naff quality that using the laptops multiple ins and outs like a person said in one of your posts wouldnt be good enough for serious work and the person would need a dac so that the usb digital sound would be processed by the external sound cards better qualiy dac and give you better sound quality to the mixer …. i currently run a laptop into a mixer without an audio interface as i just send Karaoke audio into the mixer from the lappy and my sm 58 mics plug into my mixer . I dont think the quality is brilliant but i think and hope that if i buy an audio usb interface that the sound quality will be studio quality .. please give me feedback because i want to know if the latter is true about quality that i will notice over a standard laptop built in soundcard

  18. thanks  alot for that now i will like to know if you know how to connect numark dj io with numark x5 mixer and numark v7 thanks

  19. would you recommend used mix controllers/Turntable(with digital vinyl)? over all what do you think about used gear.

  20. I just wanna say thank you so much for this tutorial series!
    I am a newbie. I bought the Edison Professional DJ Britelite 2500 which includes the Edison Scratch 2500 DJ Controller. I plan on using the Virtual DJ software as I'm able to pay a monthly subscription to access their music database. 1) Is this compatible with Virtual DJ and 2) if it isn't then which other software (low cost) can I get with a low mthly music database subscription? I am primarily into Latin music for Salsa dancing.
