    what are you trying to do?...

    use each one as a soundcard?
    or just use each one under midi mode?

    Hi

    I need the decks to be able to do discos on as a back up, i use the ndx 800 which are fab, but these decks will be support decks, however the laptop wont see both decks

    Pretty poor i notice they shut down if you goto cd mode unlike ndx keep playing

    Just getting em working would Be good

    They must be multi purpose

    The Stantons are good too. But if you are trying to use 2 sound devices, it's just not possible. Unless you aggregate them. Just look up "aggregate sound device" on Google.

    You mean midi mapping / soundcard setup or what ? How did you expect them to work ?

    And Frankly I'm sure Numark don't give a crap that the NDX900 doesn't work like a Gemini or any other manufacturers CDJ either. Do car dealers give you lessons on how to drive after you buy a car ?

    You did read the manuals right ?

    personally i think this modern idea of having a cdj as a soundcard is just dumb. I mean first of all for obvious reasons...... but also dj's should really all be using soundcards. it makes it so much easier to play on all different media. Dude just get yourself a used "audio 4" and map thos cdj's with midi, and your all set. Then when you want to get rid of the cdjs, the transition into something else is much easier, because your using the same soundcard all the time.

    Ok to be clear i was told the decks were plug n play if the issue is sound cards in them why the fack do they put in as most djs will use two decks right?

    I aint stupid, yes red the manuals but thought id ask if others had same issues, as to numarks i use a sound card on these audio 2, but on all gemini adverts they say plug and play

    I come here to get help not have someone think im an idiot, if you cant help dont reply simple.

    Anyway back to sorting the issue
