    I recently bought powered rokit 8 speakers and have plugged them into the main output of my traktor s4 mk2 ... My problem is I can't play my technic 1200's on channel 3&4 on live input as I did wit my old non powered speakers into a hifi... Plus I seem to be playing on the non preferred set up of ( wasapi ( shared mode )

    Change your sound card/audio interface to S4 in Traktors preferences.

    It prompts me to do this when I turn on everytime but I can't use it as there is an issue with something with an Asio maybe on my computer... just trying to pinpoint it on here as i don't have to much time to myself with two wee lads running under my feet x

    Check two things: you have the correct s4 audio drivers installed (asio) and your cables are connected up correctly, use either jack outputs on the s4 to jack (or xlr) inputs on the rokets or rca outputs on the s4 to rca inputs on the rokets.

    You can get the driver here: https://www.native-instruments.com/e...s-other-files/
    It mentions an audio distortion bug fix, so you might have an outdated driver.

    After checking that those things are correct, try uping your latency settings and see if the "distortion" goes away.

    Thanks .... Extra things I forgot to add... the audio speaker icon on top of the screen is orange and the volume levels next to it are into the red with heavy distortion . My two jacks ( XLR ) from my rokit 8 powered speakers are into my ( main input ) on the s4...
    There is actually no sound through my headphones .... It is showing I have updated the drivers... that driver you mentioned with the distortion bug fixer is a 2014 one ... does that matter... Thanks again for your time 👍🏽

    t is showing I have updated the drivers... that driver you mentioned with the distortion bug fixer is a 2014 one
    Those should be the most up to date drivers, the s4 mk2 ones are from late 2015.


    My two jacks ( XLR ) from my rokit 8 powered speakers are into my ( main input ) on the s4...
    I presume thats in reverse and the main outputs on the s4 go to the XLR input's on the rokit (think about the direction the signal travels).

    Could you let me know what your main output volume is set to (o'clock position)

    audio speaker icon on top of the screen is orange and the volume levels next to it are into the red with heavy distortion
    What is the load meter showing?

    Could you post screenshots of the main interface, Audio setup preferences and output routing preferences.

    This might provide a quick fix for anything wrong with your preferences:
    As a reset for the traktor settings go into the settings menu and click setup wizard in the bottom left, then follow through the options.

    It just sits in the red
