    Default Soundcard for my setup

    Hi,

    I'm new to all this Digital DJ, but I like to play around.
    So I bought myself a Vestax VCI-100, Akai MPD24 and M-Audio Axiom 25.
    Now these are all USB Controllers.
    What would be a good Soundcar to connect all these together.
    I'm looking at using FL Studio for Production, and Traktor for some Mixing.
    Any other recommondations about the software?

    you don't need multiple channels. Those are all controllers of the software. For internal mixing you need 2 channels (right and left) and headphone channel thats about. If you don't plan on adding any inputs an Audio 2 would do the trick. I personally have not used one. Use an Audio 8 and the sound quality is awesome. Perhaps one of the guys here can give you a review of an Audio 2.

    As an A2DJ user, I can vouch for its quality. To play out is a great little soundcard for internal mixing.

    I see you are also interested in going down the production road too. In that case I would suggest something with some input channels as well as the 4 outputs (2 stereo pairs). As a minimum I would suggest 2 inputs, and at least one of those with a mic pre-amp on it. You never know when you need a voice or sound snippet for a mix (think vocoder for the mic, not Lady Gaga. LOL) Plus, you need an input for the sampler some times...

    I just picked up a Audio Kontrol 1 which does all the above, but there are MANY choices out there. Spend some time looking: Motu, Presonus, Emu, Focusrite, etc. and that is probably less than half the companies that make something that could suite your needs.

    Have fun, Phil.
