    Default Loudest Output Audio Interface for DJing with Traktor?

    I have been looking at both the komplete audio 6 and the traktor scratch audio 6 as ill be looking into timecode in the future, but Im wondering if there is a cleaner, louder output option with a decent amount of inputs (6?) at a good price point? Or will either of the 2 do great?

    Just looking for peoples opinions and experience!

    Keep in mind that The Komplete Audio 6 does NOT support timecode, so you might
    scratch that one from your list . Otherwise it's a great all-rounder interface for producing and DJing.

    Do you have a current setup?
    Maybe looking into Traktor Scratch certified mixers might also be an option for you.

    My current kit is a traktor s2, kontrol f1, and a cheapy mixer to boost the gains just a tad as ive found (for me atleast) the levels on the s2 are heaps low compared to other even cheaper controllers...

    yeah the whole thing about the komplete not having timecode support is a bit of a deal breaker but will it be the same soundwise as the scratch??

    I have a digital setup using Traktor s2, but ive found the output to be pretty low and lacking in depth on the s2 (compared to the Hercules 4mx which has a tank soundcard built in), so I bought a cheapy behringer mixer to try and boost the gains a bit which has worked but doesnt help with my interest in timecode...which wont be for a while but still something im looking at!

    Basically Id wana get the komplete as its quiet a bit cheaper and has XLR inputs for various things but its a bit of a deal breaker if it doesnt support timecode! hmmmm scratch 6 it is by the looks of it!

    The audio 6 is plenty loud. If you ever plan on timecode, that's your choice

    All of NI's external cards are quite loud, even the tiny Audio 2 is quite beastly in that regard.
