    Default Soundcard : MAYA 44 USB

    Hey guys !
    I just wanted to give my feedback about the maya 44 usb which I recently purshased (and send back almosr right away).
    The surprinsing thing about it at this first sight is that it is REALLY light ! So much that I first thought the package was empty !
    It was plug and play on my macbook.
    So far so good...but then comes the trouble...
    The sound is awfull, my on board macbook soundcard has almost better quality. I also had lots of cracks and pops even with high latency. And I tried to use the inputs with traktor (with a cd player), and It sounded really really bad...To me this device is complety unuseable ! So I decided to put a bit more money, and i'm going for a presonus firebox !

    Hopes this help !

    Alright I just had a gig with it on a party with about 30 people dancing, there were absolutely no problems!
    I choosed the Maya 44 USB Asio Driver and set the latency to "fast" which is about 3 ms I think. All effects working fine (which I think needs the most processing).
    One thing I did:
    I didn't put the headphones into the "Headphone"-Output, but instead into the "analog 3/4"-Output. That's because thats the only way to get them working with the cueing/monitoring way that's inside Traktor. I don't like the monitoring system that comes with it and is always active when you put the headphones in the headphone-output. I think it's the way that normal mixers are monitoring, except that you only can control it inside the Asio-Settings which is very uncomfortable I think.

    I just ordered the Maya44 off ebay. How do I hook it up with Traktor so I can headphone cue the next track? Thanks!

    what you need to buy is a RCA male to a female hosa or RCA to a 3.5mm female (for smaller jack), now you can plug your headphones into the maya 44, and setup traktor to the right outputs for cueing. Done!
