Help, noob trying to run Traktor 2 with an external mixer
I've got a focusrite 8i6 so two sets of stereo outs, I have these going to one and two on my old numak mixer but I am getting both tracks in one channel of the mixer.

I have traktor set to external mixer but I only have line out l/r to choose from on each of the output decks.

How do I send each track to each channel on the mixer and cue in my headphones through the mixer?

Cheers

i think, and i dont know why i think this, that you need a NI soundcard to run two channels out? if you dont you have to use the intneral mixer on traktor

but im not sure at all tbh

I've read that I can use the 8i6 to do want I want but I can't find the configuration.

When I get home I'm going to try it with the asio4all driver as I hope that might give me more routing options.

mmm, I would assume this would be something that needs to be done inside your focusrite software. Are they labeled Out 1-2 & 3-4?

The strongest!

Hifire, yeah that maybe it as well, the Mixcontrol software isn't the easiest thing to navigate, I'll give it another crack tonight.

Yeah I remember mixcontrol being an absolute pain in the ass when I used to have a Sapphire Pro 24. The only thing I can think of is making sure the outputs are actually setup in mixcontrol then you should be able to assign them in Traktor, that being said I have next to no experience with Traktor (stupidseratofanboys)

You're going to need a NI Audio soundcard

If I did understand this well, you would like the S2 2 decks playing on each channels of your mixer, forget that 86 device and plug the S2 directly to the mixer, using the back rcas, and then using the headphone output on the S2 to the second channel, there is a bit of config to do on the software, as to what goes where, but I have done it, and it sound fine. If you are stack let me know and will source the doc that explains the manipulation.

oop looks like I did read this wrong, you have to go in the output routing and trying to figure it out, I played software thru soundcard, onto separate channels few times, it is all in the routing
