    It's an analog mixer, so you will need to use that soundcard to use it with traktor, in external mode. That mixer is neither a midi controller nor does it have a soundcard suitable for traktor use.

    I'm guessing from the digital FX and MIDI that the Nox is digital rather than analogue.

    You could use the MIDI output of the mixer to map it to Traktor, but it would make more sense to simply route the outputs of your sound card directly into the mixer.

    The NOX606 is an analog mixer. What are you trying to do with it and Traktor? If you're running your setup in a typical "DVS Mode", it should wire up normally.

    Like most purchasers, I think people expect the "contrlller/mixer" etc to work out of the box as intended and not have to map it? Generations keep getting lazier heh

    Mixers do work out the box - but you have to understand the difference between audio and midi.

    There's an assumption that anything with a USB connection is plug n' play.

    The website for the NOX 606 could easily mislead a beginner into thinking it's all they need to mix their MP3 files. It doesn't have full MIDI control either; rather unsurprisingly it has the exact same MIDI functions as the Xone 92 outlined here.

    Agree at first glance I thought it was a digital mixer at first, then at deeper delving, found it has some pretty goofy useless features heh. Woo route an ipod for the win!

    It certainly wouldn't hurt to mention the word "analogue" at least once on the product page (or the manual!) as it turns out to be an analogue mixer. Instead, the word "digital" appears 5 times.

    I don't see anything on the product page that makes me think this mixer is anything other than what it is advertised as. The onus is on the customer to properly research before a purchase as well.
