Numark Mixtrack 2
Topic: Numark Mixtrack 2 - Page: 1
The only difference is with Pro you can hook speakers directly to it and the other you can't
There is a $100 price difference
Since my current set up is a laptop ran through my Numark iDJ3 my thought is I can get the Mixtrack 2 save myself $100 and it will work the same since its USB powered
So plug Mixtrack 2 into my laptop then take the rca cord I currently use ran from my laptop to my iDJ3 and it all works the same except for I won't be doing the click/drag method I currently do instead I will have a controller to get more out of my DJ software
Is my assumption correct with this?

If you have one you should be able to use the mixtrack with your laptop.
But it is recommended, that you also buy another soundcard which is built for DJ performances.
Built-in soundcards aren't designed for DJ works.

And if I run it all through my main unit the iDJ3 why would I need a sound card?

You will need VDJ Pro for all the audio configuration capabilities that allow the use of multiple pieces of hardware such as controllers and sound cards.
The built-in sound card on the Mixtrack Pro 2 is serviceable but it is not a pro audio device. I use the card in my Mitrack Pro but I also run my sound through a sound processor and analog mixer.

I am writting to you because I just bought the Mixtrack II and apparently I can use headphones, but I don't really know how to set it up in order to use it. I have tried it many times but it wasn't successfull, so... what may I do to deal with this problem. It works good but the problem is that I can't pre listen the song I am playing next.
So please, can you help me deal with it? Thank you in advance.

You can download the latest VirtualDJ Home FREE to try out VirtualDJ with your MixTrack Pro 2. Home FREE is limited to 10 minutes at a time when using with a controller as a trial of the full VirtualDJ Pro, which is required for MIDI controller support. You can restart the software as many times as needed to continue your free trial.
In answer to your question, controllers with built-in sound cards are designed to output sound directly to PA speakers or link to the in-house mixer in a club or bar. For home use, you will need to use powered stereo speakers such as studio monitors. Free software that comes with controllers with built-in sound cards is usually limited to using the sound card in the controller only.
There is a simple workaround though - Please see http://www.virtualdj.com/wiki/VirtualDJ%20LE%20sound%20through%20computer%20speakers.html

Mixtrack Pro II was recently added as a natively supported device, so your version may be out-dated.
If you dont own a license of VirtualDJ Pro Full, you can use Home Free version to test (provides multiple 10min sessions) , prior purchasing a license.

I think it must be something related to the electric circute or perhaps it was static sparking that caused the freeze.
Did it really happen EVERYTIME you touched the touchwheel? And only on one side of the controller or both?

To be able to use your MixTrack 2, you will either need to purchase a VirtualDJ v8 Controller License, a VirtualDJ v8 Pro Subscription or the full VIrtualDJ Pro Infinity.
