    Default DJM-800 Question

    Hi,

    Would it be technically possible to connect a Pioneer DJM-800 via USB to my laptop, and in Traktor assign Deck A's output to Channel 1, Deck B to Channel 2 and Maschine's output to Channel 3 ?

    I find information on the internet very confusing.

    Thank you.

    No, the DJM-800 doesn't have USB. A quick glance at the picture section of Google could've told you that.

    Use a USB to MIDI converter and yes it is doable. However, you're aware you also need a multiclient capable Audio Card ?

    I am aware of that, however I thought this cable would be a MIDI to USB cable equivalent to a USB to USB cable.

    Thanks

    What is this ?

    How about the Xone:92 ? Is it the same thing as this mixer or can I use that one as a USB soundcard out of the box ?

    No. Neither the DJM800 or Xone 92 have a soundcard.

    Alright, that's the sort of answer I needed.

    So I should buy an external Soundcard such as the Traktor Audio 6 or 10 right ?

    Yes or a DNX1600 or DJM 900, they both have Traktor Scratch certified sound cards in them.

    The full list from the NI site.

    And as a final note, I approved a thread in the buy sell forum just a few minutes ago that had a Korg Zero 4 for sale.

    That link is exactly what I needed, brilliant!

    And thanks for the call on that Korg Zero 4, this would perfectly fit my needs AND budget.

    Cheers
