So after close to a year of not being able to DJ (No gear since my move to the States), I finally picked up a Kontrol X1 for use with Traktor Pro.
I'm running just that with the software. I have it mapped to use it as a mixer for the time being.
Setting my laptop's sound card as the master channel, I'm able to hear that properly as I mix in my headphones. However, I don't have any cueing going for me at the moment. I'm guessing I need a separate sound card for that and unfortunately, one of the proprietary NI interfaces at that.
Am I right in thinking the above, or is there another way to get this to work without dropping a ton of money?
When I used VDJ, I could use a pair of USB headphones which served as its own sound card and allowed me to cue properly. I've tried that with Traktor, but I get errors which is what lead me to believe proprietary hardware will most likely be a requirement in this situation.
The Audio 2 looks like it will be the right combo of what I'm looking for. I'm very used to mixing in headphones due to noise level restrictions in previous residences so is there a way to accomplish that with this setup or will an external mixer be required for that?
