    Default What kind of soundcard for X1&F1

    I play mostly with my S2 and F1, works like a charm but i've bein asked to do some sets abroad and i want to be able to travel light.
    Thats why i'm thinking about getting an X1.
    My question is, what kind of soundcard do i need to be able to use the X1 and F1 with a mixer?

    With the Audio2 i can plug the X1 into any mixer and have deck A and B, i know that, but since im using deck C&D with my F1, doesnt that meen i need a soundcard with 4 channels?

    i just want to travel with the X1, F1, laptop and a soundcard and be able to hook it up to any (external/analog) mixer and have A&B as trackdecks for the X1 and have C&D as remix decks for the F1.

    I use Traktor when I'm DJ'ing and use a similar setup minus the F1

    Mixer <RCA cables> Soundcard (Audio 8) <USB> Laptop
    Laptop <USB> X1

    Thats' how I set mine up and it works perfectly. Wouldn't that suffice? But just by adding another controller (F1)?

    How about a xone k2 instead of x1, sound card plus transport controls and mix internally in traktor.
    It's not the gear. It's how you use it.
    limitations are the source of creativity.
    If you don't practice you don't want it.

    X1 and F1 plugged into your laptop, NI audio 2 to cue your tracks and output audio to your speakers. I don't see why that won't work. All mixing will be done internally, so no need for an extra mixer.
