    Default So, I got it to work on my Mac, but not my desktop...

    I figured out how to use my Macbook speakers for Master Output, and then the headphones connected to my Traktor S4 MK2 as monitor using the aggregated feature.


    Now, in Windows, when I try using ASIO4ALL, I figured out how to get sound to come out from both my computer speakers (Realtek soundcard) and how to monitor with the headphones connected to my Traktor S4, but whenever I hit the cue button to monitor, the sound also will come out from Master.

    How do I fix this without having to get speakers? I don't have funds to get speakers right now, and I want to use my desktop.

    I found a dusty pair of speakers to connect straight to my Traktor S4, but whenever I cue up a track, I still hear it on my master, even with the outputs set correctly.

    The only way to hear a track in my monitor headphones without hearing it on master, is to have the crossfader on the opposite side.

    Are you saying that you leave the faders open when cueing?

    Well, say I want to listen to Deck A only on my headphones. I need to have the crossfader ALL the way to Deck B, so that when the monitor button is on for A, I hear only B through the speakers. If the crossfader is anywhere not set to B, and the monitor button is on for A, I will hear A in both headphones and master.

    Unless it is supposed to work like that.

    Yes, that is how faders and cueing works.

    Oh, I always thought cuing was independent of crossfader.

    It is. You are talking about what you do and do not hear on the speakers.

    Now you lost me. If my crossfader is in the middle, and I have the cue light on for A, I should STILL hear it on my Master right?

    The use of the Cue is so if my volume is all the way down on A, or the fader is to B, for me to monitor it without it being on Master?

    The faders have no effect on the headphone monitor channel, and the Cue buttons have no effect on the master.

    Brilliant thread this one, but enough sarcasm.

    You have two line faders, one for A one for B, when these are up and the crossfader is in the middle you will hear both. If you only had A line fader up thats what you would hear, same for only B.

    You cue up what you want to mix in, So deck A playing, crossfader to he left, you cue up B and hey presto its not coming out the master.

    Seriously this is like the most basic fundamental.

    Your best bet, is to just use the s4 as the soundcard, and run the OUT of the S4 into the MIC IN of the PC/Mac whatever. That way your S4 is doing all the sound stuff, your just using your PC as the speaker.
