    Not sure exactly what youíre trying to accomplish, but that Kontrol X1 MK2 already contains a built-in USB sound card. Perhaps what you need is a small mixer to plug it into. I have a little AKAI AMX controller, which is similar to your Traktor controller, and I hook it up to a Alto Professional ZEPHYR ZMX mixer. Not sure that has enough outputs for you, but Iím sure you can find a similar mixer with more outputs.

    The Kontrol X1 MK2 does not come with an audio interface.

    The ESI interface recommended above works well. You can also use NI's audio2.

    That would allow 2 decks only, I think he wants 4 deck output. Since NI discontinued Audio 10 there's not much choice of affordable and compact 4 deck soundacrds.

    For some reason, I thought 2 things:

    1. Four outputs means 2 stereo outputs - which the Audio2 can do as it's a 0 channel input 4 channel output sound interface. You can run it as a main stereo output and headphone queue (for internal mixing) or as 2 stereo outputs for 2 decks (for external mixing).
    2. The Audio2 can still be used as a four deck sound interface for internal mixing. It would allow for main stereo output and headphone queue. The four decks would be controlled by the two X1s.

    If the OP wants to run two X1s and use a mixer, then the Audio 2 won't be sufficient.
