    Default What sound card should I use for headphone precueing if I'm getting the VCI-100se's?

    So here's the thing, i've heard about many many sound cards that could be a good option.
    - Audio 2 DJ (Native Instruments)
    - Maya 44 usb
    - Numark DJ I/O
    - Echo Indigo (I have a brand new laptop so it wouldnt work)

    And some others also, but i was looking forward to knowing which one would i should buy thinking about saving money and good quality.

    Thanks.

    welcome to the forums. there is a large thread about soundcards and even a video by ean about soundcards.

    try and decide how many ins/outs you see yourself needing and go from there.

    I reckon the NI, simply cause Traktor already works flawlessly with it!

    Out of those choices I would recommend the NI DJ 2, simply on their rep and the quality of the equipment. Plus having hardware and software from the same manufacturer should be a big plus with no conflicts whatsoever.

    From that list i would get the Audio 2. Not the sturdiest card around but probably has the best sound quality in this price bracket.

    Yeah, a mate has it, and I borrowed it one time.

    Seems fine. I need a mic in so I'm sticking with my AK1, but yeah, no problems with it.
