    Default Scarlet 2i4 and Z1 on Traktor

    Hi everyone, need a bit of help making my setup work please!

    I have a:

    Kontrol Z1 and X1
    Korg Volca Beats
    Scarlett 2i4

    Now what I want to do is make the Volca go through the 2i4 into Traktor as a live deck and go out through the Z1 into the monitors, so I can added to my live set.

    The thing is as the Z1 is a sound card as well as the 2i4, Traktor does not read the Scarlett 2i4, it reads them both separate so I have the sound of one or the other, I already tried with the ASIO4all but that works with non ASIO machines and the Scarlett is ASIO compatible so it does not show up in the ASIO4all settings.
    I read somewhere that it was really easy to do it in a Mac but! unfortunately I have Windows.

    Or the option might be go with the 2i4 into Ableton and then into the Traktor live deck but will everything come out of the Z1? (I have never tried this)


    Is there a way to do this?


    Really appreciate the help

    Thanks!!

    why not just use the 2i4? i can't see how you need both...what might trip you up though is getting audio into traktor as the 2i4 isn't traktor certified

    also you may need a traktor scratch license rather than just traktor pro to get audio into traktor

    I don't think that's true. You need the Scratch license to get timecode working, but there's still the option to feed a live deck in.

    Can you use the Z1 as a control surface only? Sounds like using the 2i4 as your sound card in Traktor is he way to go.

    Are you on Mac or PC?

    You're not wrong.

    Traktor Scratch certification is just for timecode. You can use literally any sound card with Traktor as long as you're not using timecode.

    AFAIK, there's no good way to use multiple sound cards with Traktor under Windows (which I'm assuming because OP mentioned ASIO).

    So, just pick the 2i4 as Traktor's sound card, set the I and O appropriately, and set one of the decks (with inputs set) as a live input, then just use the Z1 as a controller.

    You want to use Outs 1-2 as your master (because they can be balanced or unbalanced) and 3-4 as your cue signal and set the switch on the front panel to monitor 3-4, and make sure direct monitor is off.
