Traktor Kontrol S2 MK3 Connection to Scarlett 4i4 -- Please HELP 😡

I know this is a common question, but I can't seem to get it to work. How the hell do I get my headphone cue to work when using the Sarlett 4i4 Souncard?

Macbook M1PRO


Traktor Pro 3

KRK speakers -- Connected to output 1-2

S2MK3 -- Connected to line input 3-4

Internal mixing mode

Do I need to do something else in focusright control? I tried many combinations but can't seem to get the cue (headphones) to work from the S2mk3.

Does anyone Know the answer?

    Try this, i think is quiet simple,

    -Choose S2MK3 as Traktor's main audio device (instead of Focusrite)... for the cue (headphones) to work S2MK3 must be the main device

    -Internal Traktor routing as you have it (1-2 to Master, 3-4 to Monitor)

    -S2MK3 audio output to any Focusrite input

    -Focusrite output to KRK

    or, S2MK3 audio output directly to KRK, you do not necessarily need the Focusrite, unless you want to create a more complex setup

    Are speakers and headphones both connected to the focusrite?

    And no audio cable to the s2?

    I want to use my Focusrite and not directly plugin to the speakers (its a pain)

    The S2 is connected to the Focusrite 3-4 input

    Why plug the s2 into the focusrite input?

    Why not use the focusrite from traktor? Then you don't need to do any fancy routing I presume.
