    Just some printable artwork.

    I’m not after covers/sleeves

    It doesn’t have to be actual record artwork, as long as it looks good in the frames.

    I just use headphones too…

    cue the incoming track with the channel fader down… get it running and matched, turn off the cue at the point to bringing it in with the fader and eqs, adjusting /nudging as you are bringing it in.

    as you don’t use speakers, you can use the master out to broadcast from.

    do you have a second computer that you can use to stream?
    forget laptop webcam as it’s usually rubbish quality and positioning is rather limited.

    I haven’t looked as mik since Traktor got key detection functionality.
    may just have another look.

    im not saying its right or wrong with key detection between mik and traktor. my experience is that it works for my way of picking tracks based on key.

    – never jump 5 on the wheel.
    – go up a key mostly, unless the listeners viewers need a rest.
    – only use opposite sides or the same key if you run out of options.

    just my opinion.

    i never used traktor library, as i also use ableton live.

    reason i want to index the tracks and have them searchable, is it should be quicker from a database, than scanning lots of folders on the server.

    mixed in key i used to use before traktor got key detection capability. sometimes they both give a differing result but the principles of key mixing work with whichever result.

    problem is that it takes a while to search the server for tracks.

    loading is fine once located.

    one tip:
    use effects to enhance, not overpower

    I’ve spliced a basic twin RCA stereo pair cable (just using one cable of the pair) to connect my computer digital out direct from the motherboard to my Allen&Heath Xone:DB4.
    works perfectly fine.

    I looked it up before making this connection as I didn’t want to damage my mixer and or computer.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S/PDIF (details it’s a joint thing by sony/philips)

    “searching for spdif pin out” got me the info so i could wire up the cable to the header pins on the motherboard and plug the other end into my mixer.

    I’d just go for it if you have digital connections to use between players and mixer.
    standard phono rca cable will work (has done to connect my computer to mixer)

    you can have as many MIDI devices as you want with traktor, but ONLY ONE audio device with traktor.
    if they both have MIDI, then you can use both.
    but only the soundcard from ONE.

    what you need is line level inputs on your hardware for your akai xr20 drum machine

    depends if you want heavy bass… a lot of them have too much bass for my liking.

    as said… best to try them.

    cant remember the price of them… but I have audio technica m50 headphones. which is also great for producing.

    having had production tuition the m50 headphones quality are between their rubbish Behringer speakers, and their Genelec speakers in their studio.

    Traktor can use any number of MIDI devices / connections from wherever.
    however… only 1(one) audio device can be used.

    if you have more than one audio device, you can still use the MIDI from it and all others, but only send audio to/from one device

    have you got input / output the right way round?

    seems like you are trying to connect output of the controller to the input of the speakers?

    if so, the you will need one of these type of cables:
