    Default Request: Cheap multi channel audio interface for under $30

    Hello again peoples ,

    Its that time of the year again -.- Buying loved ones really cheap gifts . I'm basically broke and looking to buy a DJ setup, go figure! Well its not for me, its a gift. I have a budget of $120ish so I have a Hercules MP3 E2 in the cart and I'm also looking to purchase a Audio Interface because my friend, the recipient, uses a laptop.

    Can I find a Multi channel audio interface for under $30. Or should I buy my loved friend a Numark iO and act like I didn't know it couldn't monitor cue .

    I've used a splitter before out of my computers headphone jack.

    Right: goes to master in mono

    Left: cue in mono.

    Not sure how it works in windows. On a mac, you lose a bit fo sound quality but playing on a home stereo system it sounds fine. You can jam in your bedroom with no problem or living room or kitchen with no problem.

    I did the same for my nephews to get them into DJing. Herc MP3e2 and a 10.00 splitter.

    Have you checked ebay for Numark Mixtracks? I'd try to get something that comes with TP LE.

    uhm, make sure you tell your friend about the asio-driver/midi-devicesetup ( on macs ) if you want to use traktor

    i gifted a friend with an old midi controller some time ago ( mp3 e2 :d ) and my usb-2 in/out soundcard and after 2 days he came back almost crying that he: 'couldnt get that damn sh*t cue to work'

    thats a different soundcard from the one i was referring to, numark also have another one called the IO which does have 4 channels, how strange. Im speaking about the one that they originally bundled with the total control ([ame]http://www.amazon.com/Numark-Multi-Channel-Audio-Interface/dp/B000S5Q2EK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=musical-instruments&qid=1291383595&sr=1-1[/ame])

    apoligies for the misinformation, i wasnt aware they had a lower model (let alone one with the name name? :S)
