    Default Maschine as Livedeck with Audio8 and external Mixer?!?

    Hi All,

    I have a Macbook, Audio8,X1,external Mixer and newly I have a Maschine.

    So my actually Setup is I use 2 TrackDecks (A&B) which goes to A=output 1/2 (on the A8 from there with a Cable to the Mixer Channel1) , B=output 3/4 (on the A8 from there with a Cable to the Mixer Channel2)

    Im am controlling the 2 Track Decks with my X1.

    Now I want following:

    The sound from the Maschine should be routed in a the LiveDeckC and from there to the out ports 5/6 on the A8 and with a cable in the Mixer Channel3



    I know that I must use JackOSX for this setup. But I donít know how this is possible

    I theory I know you can do it also with hard cable like:


    DeckA (like normal) out on 1/2 and than to Channel1 on the mixer
    DeckB (like normal) out on 3/4 and than to Channel2 on the mixer
    Maschine Out to out (in software) 5/6- and the cable from 5/6 to in 5/6 than in traktor DeckC to out 7/8 and the cable from out 7/8 to Channel3 on the Mixer.

    But than I cannot use DeckD as for example TrackDeck in future cause my soundcard has not enough out ports and also I cant record my mix.

    I have read the traktor bible and much in this forum but all I found was solutions with internal mixer mode or/and S2/S4.

    Can anybody give me a advice for a solution?

    Thanks in advance!


    P.S.: I forgot sync is not the topic- I have maschine in sync via IAC thatís all ok

    Are you routing Maschine through a Traktor deck so you can use FX? You could always just send it straight to your external mixer to free up your decks.

    And you still seem to have 3 sets of unused inputs - what's stopping you from recording the mix?

    Hi Makar1,

    yes i want to use the FX from traktor on the maschine- also I want to map the play button (for LiveDeck) that I can start/stop the maschin playing cause if I sync up the maschine the play button isnt available.

    Do you know how I can route it ?

    That I have DeckA&B (trackdecks) on separate mixer channel and maschin on a 3rd extra mixer channle but routet through traktor ?

    There's a detailed tutorial on Traktor Bible explaining all about joining Traktor and Maschine using JackOSX

    What problems were you having with recording your mix?

    Thank you Makar1 for your answer.

    This Tutorial I have read over and over and over But this Tutorial only shows how you can route all DECKS from Traktor in the Maschine. But there I cant find anything about Maschine route in a TrackDeck in Traktor.

    If i think again regarding the mix recording problem... its not a problem
