Please Help with Output Routing; three days of frustrating tries :(
I can´t find the way to have working my soundcard to use output to the amplifier and to the headphones at the same time to Djing. I`m in charge of some small event in two weeks.
What I have:
-Traktor Pro 3 Demo last version (ready to buy but if is not working I`ll need another option, just I like Traktor).
-Controller midi Vestax TR-1 (no soundcard)
-Three different soundcards: 1)small & cheap stick USB soundcard; 2)Chord Hugo DAC; 3)Soundblaster Creative external. All of them have more than 5 years but working in different laptops (Windows and Mac) and softwares.
What is the specific problem:
I always have again and again just two outputs in Output Routing (L1-R1; Hugo1-Hugo2; USB1-USB2, that kind of names depending what soundcard I´m trying). Traktor and iOS are recognizing the soundcards and I`m setting both softwares with the right soundcard every try. But always again I have just two outputs so I can hear or the RCA-Speakers output or Minijack-Headphones, so I can`t work like DJ.
Before the pandemy I was DJ in a party with friends and I used an old Windows laptop, playing at that time with the SAME small stick USB soundcard. So I went to try the same old laptop and soundcard with an old Traktor 2, still in that laptop just not configurated. But... happened the same problem!, so I think it is something that I`m doing wrong and not problems with my soundcards.
Now in Mac iOS I created in Audio/Midi setup app an "agregate device" option but in that case I can hear the soundcard USB by one side and the minijack of the laptop through the other side so I`m not using really my controller and the same soundcard like I need. No way to have two USB outputs for speakers and headphones. (I`m not expert in softwares because I like to use tubes+vinyls to hear music).
At the moment I`m losing my time fighting with this and not working in DJing and music. Can you help me? Or my only solution is to buy quickily the hardware+software Traktor? I feel no confident anyway if would work with my laptop, because what I did it in the past is not working now anyway.
Excuse my long question but I tried to be as specific as possible. Thanks a lot!
I was looking for solution in the Discussions but I couldn`t find the similar problem. Thank you again!0
It's essential that you post a picture of your audio output settings in Traktor.
If your laptop has a headphone output then you only require one USB interface. Not three!
It should be simple to set master for laptop and headphones for USB (or vice versa).0
Thank you very much PK, very appreciated.
Just I already did that setting with the Mac´s headphone plug and the soundcard.
But in that case I lost the function of the mixer for both cue (headphones) active 100%. What I was trying to do is to have everything integrated in just one usb soundcard: one stereo output for headphones and another for speakers, like in a Traktor Kontrol S2 or S4 is and like I did it three years ago. I tried with three differents soundcard options and just was not possible.
No time unluckily so I decided to go tomorrow to the shop and to buy the original Traktor controller there, hopefully installed in my laptop because I feel very unsafe and no more time to waste.
If somebody has an advice, very appreciated anyway to continue using later the Vestax TR-1 with external soundcard, old japanese model what I like.0
