just add deck 3 and deck 4 too, but make deck 3 output 1&2 and deck 4 output 3&4
adding again the Pioneer CDJ ASIO (ASIO)

Would like to set up 4 decks adding the Numark DMC2 controller as virtual decks 3 & 4 (which I now have working as such)
I also have the Numark dm950 USB mixer with built-in 2 channel soundcard to use as output for decks 3 & 4.
this is my working configuration now
but when I attempt this new configuration:
I get this message:
So it doesn't seem to be as simple as adding decks to ADVANCED configuration.
What am I missing?

and for deck 3 output 1&2 (again)
and for deck 4 output 3&4 (again)

I tried the settings as below
Deck 1 . Cdj 400 driver . Output 1&2
Deck 2 . Cdj400 driver . Output 3&4
Deck 3 . Cdj400 driver . Output 1&2
Deck 4 . Cdj400 driver . Output 3&4
And it works... however of course is using the cdj drivers and so it also borrows the same channel in my external mixer... I need to route every deck and assign it to a channel in my mixer ddm 4000 so I connected my old mk2 and assigned it to control deck 3 and 4... succesfully. However I get no sound.... here is what I am trying...
then VDJ CRASHES... and i have to restart my PC.
any ideas? am i doing something terribly wrong?

If in your mixer the decks come on a different channel just play a bit with the outputs

Give us a screenshot with the Advanced Sound config, with the SoundCard option Drop Down Menu ON.

Error in the asio sound driver your sound card its probably not connected or the settings are incorrect... :((

Take into account that I am using a 4 channel mixer, that's why I set it up like that...
Try setting both cards' asio buffer size to the same number, from their own settings utility. Start with a bigger number to avoid skipping.
I was talking to a vdj tester, and he did not recommended me this configuration, as using two different asio drivers from two different brands is too heavy for the software.
At this point, I'm having problems with pioneer asio drivers (while using the 4 channels setup), so I gave up, and right now I'm back spinning with 2 decks.
