    Default Soundcard

    Hi all,

    After some advice. Recently sold my xdj1000s (to pay to ibiza haha) and now I'm looking at options to replace. For the time being im going with an x1mk2 and kewping my xone92.

    Im basically after great sound. I noticed a difference since switching from a ddjrz using rekordbox to xdjs and the xone.

    So in after a great sounding sound card without breaking the bank.
    I've read some great reviews on the apogee duet 2 but not sure how many channels 'out this would give me in the mixer. Ideally I'd like to use the xone to mix on and the x1mk (or 2 x1s) to control rekordbox.
    Will this allow me 3 to 4 channels inputs into the xone??

    Are there any other great sounding soundcards that will allow 3 to 4 channels out there? Ideally under the 500 mark.

    Thanks for any help in advance

    Would I need the a10 to run 3 'decks. How does the sound compare to cdjs etc? I could definitely tell the difference using th ddjrz. In my opinion (maybe it's my ears) even my vci400 sounded better

    3 outputs & 3 inputs on that badboy mate. i run 2 track decks and two remix decks off mine (you can also combine/share outputs)
    sound is amazing, as are all NI products.


    i do have the power brick for it but have not needed to use it, just make sure its on a dedicated usb port.

    Unless there's something wrong with the hardware, most pro-level interfaces will sound good.

    If you've got a budget of 500, that gives you options that can be utter beasts. Something like this Tascam. http://tascam.com/product/us-20x20/
