Topic: ASIO problem - Not enough channels
Just looking for advice or if anyone else has come across the same problem I am having. I am currently using VDJ version 7 and have recently purchased a Hercules Deejay Trim 4&6 to use with my Technic 1210's. Since installing I have been experiencing the same problems without any joy of changing settings.
When I click to open VDJ I am getting a 'Error in the ASIO sound driver'
When I try to configure the input as 2 timecodes, output as 3 line mixer, unable to change the sound card from asio I get an 'Error not enough channels in Asio'
Some advice would be much appreciated,

You have the choice between
- 4 In/ 4 Out : in other words 2 Stereo pairs for input and 2 Stereo pairs for output
- 2 In/ 6 Out : 1 Stereo pairs for input and 3 Stereo pairs for output.
Now let's look at the audio configuration you are trying to select in VDJ:
- 2 Timescodes = For which you would need 4 Inputs
- 3 Line Mixer = For which you would need 6 outputs
So VDJ basically tells you that you don't have a 4 Inputs/ 6 Outputs audio interface. :-)
Select External Mixer for Outputs and you'll be fine.

Im currently looking at the configuration settings. Im unable to select 4in/4out on trim config so still have 2in/6out selected.
When I changed the vdj config to external mixer output it still shows 'error in asio sound driver: not enough channels.

See the first answer from DJ Phatso. I'll explain again in case you didn't get it....
Using time code requires two stereo inputs (i.e. "4 in"). The only way your interface provides "4 in" is when you select "4 in / 4 out".
So......if you want to use timecode inputs, you cannot select "3 line mixer" as your output setting.

I 've never used the Hercules Trim, but i am sure the manual will show you the way ;)

Important lesson: Always read the manuals for the products you own, so you know how they work. :-)

Look on page 14 of that manual. You'll see there's an option on the DeeJay Trim control panel to switch it to 4 in/4 out mode.
And this needs to be done while VDJ is not running.
