    Default Mixer noise problem

    Hi guys,

    Iíve just bought a brand new NI Audio 2 soundcard, plus a secondhand Numark 2-channel mixer from Ebay because I wanted to be able to mix externally with my setup (which also includes Traktor Pro and an Oxygen 8). The mixer has arrived intact, but disappointingly when I tried it out in my headphones there was an intermittent crackling noise, only present when music was playing. I donít think itís my headphones, which have always worked fine Ė so pretty sure itís a problem with my mixer.

    I guess if I plug my monitors in and they sound fine, I can narrow it down to a problem between the headphones and mixer Ė possibly the connection?

    Whether or not that turns out to be the case, can I have some suggestions about how to diagnose and repair?

    Thanks in advance.

    Had a similar problem and solved it by using 2 different power suplies. One for the laptop and another one for the mixer. Maybe it works this way
