Hi, I'm looking for a external soundcard/audio interface to put into the my setup so I can use traktor with timecode cds.

I was wondering if anyone has a setup like this and would recommend a a certain soundcard. I've read that you need more than 4 input/outputs for timecode to work with my traktor and my cdjs?..

My current setup:

2 x CDJ800 MK1
DJM250 mixer
Macbook Pro

Any help on how to set this up and what soundcard I should invest in would be awesome.

Technically any soundcard with appropriate number of inputs can be used with dvs software.

BUT latency, sound quality and reliability are the 3 big factors.


Ive said it before and i'll say it again, you want a budget dvs, get iScratch Mixlive. Nothing comes close to the price (can usually be picked up for around £50)

Dont try hacking together a soundcard, rca splitters, timecodes etc etc. By the time youve bought all the kit you'll be looking at spending the same amount as iScratch costs anyway.


If i couldnt have afforded serato i'd still be rocking iScratch. COuldnt fault it at all. Almost feel like a mug shelling out for SL4 when the £50 budget dvs did the job fine. lol.

Sorry back again. I've got the audio 4 dj but I'm struggling on how to set up it up.

There's no easy support on how to set a mixer with two CDJs with timecode on it. Could nay give me a point int he right direction in how to connect up the audio 4 DJ with the mixer and cdjs to use with traktor?
