    Default How do I use my Akai XR20 and Traktor at the same time?

    Hello, I recently acquired an Akai XR20 drum machine. I have a midi cable to connect it to my PC.
    I am using Traktor and I am trying to hear the sound from Traktor and also the Akai XR20 at the same time.

    How do i do this?

    So you want to route audio to one traktor deck?

    If so, you'll need to connect your drum machine out to audio device input channel, set audio device and assign input routing for that deck.

    Don'r forget to change deck to live input.

    First of all you'll need an external audio interface with at least one input channel where you should connect a cable leading from your machine audio output.

    Don't know about the USB and sending audio from your unit trough but if that's even possible you'll need a virtual audio cable to route it into traktor.

    First step I've described will work but if you don't want to end up buying a new audio cable maybe some other forum member can give more input on MIDI>USB 'cause I'm not familiar with this drum machine and it's USB connecting. Though if this is possible the manual should cover that part.

    Luck!

    I don't think it is possible to send audio using the midi ports.

    It would be very strange if that was possible.
