Topic: Need help connecting Numark Mixtrack to computer speakers / headphone cue
My setup:
Numark mixtrack
iO Audio external soundcard
Desktop PC with 7.1 onboard sound
Logitech z-5300 5.1 speakers
VDJ LE

I'm having trouble getting music to cue up through my headphones; instead music from both decks play through my computer speakers. Here is my config setup if it helps: http://i.imgur.com/2Mxjs.jpg

Sound card one is my onboard sound card which is hooked up to my speakers and sound card two is the iO Audio hooked up via USB with headphones connected. All the drivers are up to date for both the soundcard and controller and I even tried changing the sound card option to the ASIO setting, but that only made music play through headphones only. This has been bugging me the past two days so a resolution to this would be much appreciated. :)

Your sound setup is incorrect. Numark DJIO cannot be used in a 2 sound card setup. It has two outputs for master and headphones and must be used in that way.

Please see http://www.virtualdj.com/wiki/DJIO.html for the correct sound setup for master + headphones.

NOTE: If you want your master sound to come out through your PC speakers, then connect a suitable cable (2x RCA to 3.5" headphone jack) from the master output of the DJIO to the line input of your computer. The sound will then come out through the computer's speakers (If not, go to your sound card's mixer/control panel and ensure that the line input is not muted and the volume is set to an appropriate level.)

How do connect Numark DJ Software Controller (with Virtual DJ Limited Edition) software from my laptop to an amplifier. The controller does not have any outputs for audio connection to an amplifier

Thank you for your prompt response but I'm still having trouble getting audio to play through both speakers and headphones. I hooked up the cable (2x RCA to 3.5 stereo) from output 1 of the DJIO sound card to line in on my computer (onboard sound) but it still didn't work. The sound card is unmuted and set at max volume. I also followed the steps in the link you sent me for external hardware, changed from 2 card setup to ASIO but its still a no go.

One thing worth noting is when I go to the config screen to select an output, there's no external mixer option to select. Should I be following the "Internal software mixer configuration" section? Also, did I plug the RCA into the right output? Like I said, the RCA's are in output 1 going to line in so should the RCA's be plugged into output 2 and run that through line input on my computer? Thanks again.

Sorry, my last post was wrong since I wrote it at work without seeing any of the devices. I actually had the RCA's plugged into output 2 instead of 1. I switched them and plugged the RCA's in output 1 and ran that though to the line input but I still only get sound coming from the headphones. Here's how I set it up: http://i.imgur.com/BJRAv.jpg and here is my sound card settings: http://i.imgur.com/PKmiV.jpg

This shouldn't be this difficult! What am i doing wrong? :(

The connections are correct.

Most likely the line input of your computer's built-in sound card is either muted or disabled.

Go into your sound card's mixer control panel (Or the default Windows control panel if it doesn't have one - Double on the volume (speaker) icon at the bottom-right of the screen in Windows 7/Vista and then click on the mixer link.)

Make sure that the line input is turned up and is not muted.

What controller do you have? If it has no outputs, then it probably doesn't have its own built-in sound card.

If this is the case, you will need to purchase an external sound card such as Numark DJIO or a simple stereo USB card to use for the headphones.

I finally got it working properly! Turns out the line in was muted so I cranked that up all the way and it works flawlessly. I can't thank you enough. You really were a big help.
