    Default Leave it all plugged in/powered on??

    Right then:

    Ive got an Audio 10 which requires its own power supply in the form of a 9v adaptor.

    Which is fine, However...

    The Audio 10 has no power on/off switch. So to power down the sound card i have to pull the plug out of the back of the sound card or turn it off at the mains. Alternatively i can just leave it powered on all day/night.

    Now, i dont really like leaving stuff powered on when im not using it, nor do i like just cutting the power from equipment either...

    Any thoughts on whats going to be more damaging to the life of the Audio 10? Leaving it on 24/7 or literally having to pull the plug after each use?

    Would be cool if there was a shutdown option from whithin traktor or something. If such a function does exist i couldnt find it in the manual.

    i don't see why just unplugging would cause an issue, if it was then NI would've put a switch on it...

    Also, it might make you feel better to plug it into a separate power strip you can easily switch off.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.
