    Default DJ Setup Help

    Hi, I have always loved djtechtools and been able to get all the assistance/amazing mappings I have needed, but I am having a lot of difficulty with my new equipment and need some assistance.

    Equipment: Reloop Digital Jockey Interface Edition 2
    Kaoss Pad 3 (KP3)
    Roland Juno Di
    USB Powered midi controller
    Running Traktor Pro 2 on Alienware M15x

    As many people have found out, the built in sound card for the Reloop is useless, I am experiencing lots of buzzing through the headphones and decided on purchasing a Behringer UCA222 audio interface to solve that problem for minimal cost. To use the KP3 as a external effects processor, I am planning on buying a second UCA222 for line out and in.

    But this setup leaves problems

    My laptop only has 3 usb ports, the two UCA222's will take up two and the Reloop(to my understanding) has to be plugged in via usb, leaving no way to connect the midi controller. (My Roland will have an out to an effects pedal, with an out from there to the mic in of the KP3)

    Is there any other ways of setting everything up so I could use the Arcade Fighter?

    Thanks in advance

    why 2 soundcards?? you could just buy a sound card with multi ins and out? that would save you a usb slot

    A Maya 44 would do the trick for sound cards at a pretty low cost and less headaches .. and yes as mentioned USB powered hub.

    Cables with LED = World of Hurt for DJ's, it was discussed here before with many others having the same issues,

    I have 2 of them and neither work properly with my sound card and intermittent with midi controllers, guessing its the way the LED is wired into them, too much occasional current draw perhaps...

    Fluorescent paint would be a better bet if you really need to see them.

    Thanks for all the feedback!

    I currently have a usb to RCA cable to from my laptop to the KP3, found out there's little to no latency, and the KP3 out to speakers, leaving me an extra usb port and no need to buy any soundcards

    Now I am looking into some custom mappings for the reloop interface 2, any suggestions?
