You downloaded the install file. Did you run it so the files install for you ? -- Need to do this with VirtualDJ closed. --

Is this a Mac setup ?

Remove Itch all together and install just the drivers.

Drivers are available here - http://www.numarkns6.com/support

Ok ... some things to note ...

Install the drivers from the Numark NS6 micro-site -- http://www.numarkns6.com/support
If it tells you to reboot after the installation - then reboot.

After you install the drivers - open the Numark NS6 Contol Panel - make sure it shows 'Connected'

Make sure you have the latest VirtualDJ v7.0.4 installed
[HOME Free] - http://www.virtualdj.com/download/free.html
[PRO FULL] - http://www.virtualdj.com/download/updates.html

Download the device mapping - http://www.virtualdj.com/addons/13230/Numark_NS6.html
After the download completes - run the file by double-clicking on it from the download location.

Check your Documents\VirtualDJ\Devices folder - do you see a Numark NS6 XML file?
Check your Documents\VirtualDJ\Mapper folder - do you see a Numark NS6 mapping XML file?

If you are using a PC - you can use this tool to validate that the device is being seen by the OS and being indexed as a MIDI device -- http://www.virtualdj.com/download/miditrace.exe

Could you at least answer the questions posted ?

And do you have Itch running at the same time you try to run VirtualDJ? If so, you can't. Itch takes control of the controller and it will not be recognized by VirtualDJ.

Ok, hopefully I'll have better luck than that user. And regardless, I'll be using VDJ or the unit will be returned, Itch is useless to me.
So... when this thing is unboxed, ( this time next week or sooner ) update to 7.04 & don't install the 4 deck Itch that I'm assuming comes with it or from the site?
Then follow instructions you've posted above... Windows 7 user btw.

Yes.

And we have had over 600 downloads of the device mappings and I have only seen the posting by the people above having any 'issues??'

So, I would suspect they are very unique situations and the vast majority are having no problems at all.

Got my Numark NS6 today and I having trouble with the main output coming out of the headphone jack.

I hit the headphone cue button on the NS6 but it does nothing. It doesn't turn the cue on or off.

What am I doing wrong?

All mappers are installed correctly.

Many thanks!

Scott

Let me explain it better... the volume sliders control volume in the headphone. The headphone cue buttons do nothing.

I also just unpacked a new NS6 and am having a problem with the sound. I can't seem to get the crossfader on the left deck to work. The right deck works great. Sound only comes out at all if I set the advanced config to "master", but it seems it should probably be "left deck channel 1&2, right deck channel 3&4" as in previous controllers/soundcards I've used. Can somebody with a working NS6 post the exact soundcard configuration? If it helps, I'm using a macbook pro with the latest OS updates, and the latest version of VDJ. I followed all the instructions listed above (driver install, mapper, etc).

Many Thanks!

Un-boxed mine today, installed Itch, drivers from Numark & 7.04 and master volume & headphone volumes don't do anything in VDJ but obviously work in Itch. Through headphones I can hear music, but try to turn up master through powered speakers and its only noise.
I'm also not sure how to configure sound card, tried every way possible.
