    Default Zoom U-24 audio interface for DJing

    Hello People,

    I need a audio interface for my DJ setup and I have come across
    the Zoom U-24 audio interface with 2 in's, 4 out's and headphone monitoring.
    I would like to use for outputting two two decks in two separate mixer channels or using it for monitoring and main output with a dj controller without an AI.
    It seems to have a good build and and I could use it for a few other things besides djing but I can't find any info on the internet that anyone used this AI for this purpose, even thou they promote the device to dj's in their video.

    I was wondering has anyone here used this audio interface for djing and what are your opinions on the device?

    I’d just get an NI Audio 2 mate. That thing doesn’t have a separate headphone out, it’s just a duplicate of the master out...

    If you’re using a mixer, use the mixers cue section..,

    Hello Patch, thanks for your reply and recommendation but I am more interested in finding out if anyone uses the U-24 with dj software.I have found some reviews on youtube but they are mostly focused on recording.
    I have already looked into the Native instruments Audio 2 and other similar audio interfaces.

    As explained, it's not fit for purpose.

    In the manual it states

    The thing has two rca line outs, 1-2 and 3-4, the same as an Audio 2. Plus it has and headphone output with which you can balance the playback signals 1-2 and 3-4.
    So from what I understand from the manual I can send deck A and deck B to two chancels of a mixer.
    Then let's say I use Traktor, a controller(without a AI), and the U-24 as my AI i can line out the main through 1-2 and my monitor through 3-4.

    So I don't understand why it does not fit purpose?
    I would really appreciate it if you could explain if i am getting something wrong, thanks?
