    Default Cheaper alternative to traktor audio 2?

    I was having a problem getting my x session pro to work with traktor. I don't know if this is a problem with my external sound card but it wont play the song i want to play through my headphones. It plays both of them through my laptop speakers. Then i went into audio settings and selected my sound card, but now it plays both songs through my headphones. How do i play one song through my laptop speakers and the one i am cue'ing up through my headphones?

    I heard this problem will be resolved if i replaced my usb external sound card with a traktor audio 2. Is this true? Are there any cheaper alternatives to the traktor audio 2?

    Thanks

    Sounds like you want to use both soundcards at the same time (External soundcard and built in soundcard (for laptop speakers)). In this case you need to combine the interfaces together using something like ASIO4ALL, select that as your soundcard in your dj software and then assign the correct outs.

    This right here.

    I assumed from the first post that you had a soundcard because your midi controller doesn't.

    But after looking at it online you are needing one you have your cues. !

    What the others said, plus: the audio 2 is probably the soundcard with the best value-for-money on the market. At 79 € it's a very cheap and good interface and probably by far the best you'll find in that price range.

    Didn't realise they were bringing out an MK2 version of it.... good deal if you were to ever plan on playing solely with an iPad, or with traditional software as well!

    The new Audio 2 does not come with Traktor Pro. It comes with a $50/50€ voucher instead.

    Nice one! I've been waiting for this to come out ever since they started on the whole Traktor DJ thing

    Makes for a good spare soundcard for in your bag as well.

    I've got an S4 but like a bit of redundancy. Having a spare soundcard means if my controller goes belly up I can always play off my laptop keyboard and through a mixer. If my laptop goes belly up I've got an 8GB thumb drive with a load of tunes on that I can always plug into someone else's (Traktor is becoming fairly ubiquitous these days)

    Add that to now being able to hook up my iPad at the after party and I'm well happy! My bank balance won't be though...
