Windows 7: ASIO4ALL and Traktor 3 / Cannot listen anything

ASIO4ALL and Traktor 3 / Cannot listen anything

Hello all,

I am using ASIO4ALL with Traktor 3 so that I am able to get 2 channels out of my soundcard.
What I mean is that I am using one channel for the speakers and another channel for my headphones.
I need the headphones so as to listen to the "Cue" Deck.

I have connected my speaker system to my soundcard with one cable.
But I had figured out (when I used XP) that I was able to have what I want when the settings were 5.1 speaker system at realtek settings.

Now I cannot listen to anything from Traktor 3 when using ASIO4ALL.
What can I do?

Thank you for your time.

This is mystery to me as well. I tried using ASIO4ALL with FL Studio 8/9 but couldn't get any sound at all...

That's what I wrote to NI support:
"Support hello,

I recently consulted you after my Traktor Pro 2 crashed, while I was trying to
change the latency settings in my built-in Generic Low Latency ASIO soundcard. I followed your advice, and downloaded ASIO4ALL. Since I want to work with earphones, I plugged in my USB earphones, (it's actually regular earphones with a small PL connector, that connect to an external soundcard, that connects to the computer via USB). Then I tried to choose in Preferences>Audio Setup>Generic USB Audio device (shared mode), and the system crashed.
What should I do?"

Here is the NI support reply:

But this is exactly the reason why you have to use ASIO4ALL and NOT "Generic USB Audio device (shared mode)". Whatever device you use over a shared mode WASAPI driver may cause heavy problems, even crashes are possible.

Therefore install ASIO4ALL, then SELECT ASIO4ALL as soundcard, then use the
ASIO4ALL control panel to configure it so that it uses your "Generic USB Audio
device" as output. Maybe you should have a look into the ASIO4ALL manual, which describes this in all detail.

To use this driver, please download the latest ASIO4ALL driver from the following link:

Please follow all the instructions on this site to install and use this software

(Please note that this driver is not manufactured or supported by NATIVE
INSTRUMENTS and we cannot guarantee its performance.)

Best regards

I did as they said, installed ASIO4ALL, launched Traktor Pro 2, went to Preferences>Audio Setup>Chose "ASIO4ALL v2" as my "Audio Device">Settings>Made sure both my earphones and soundcard were highlighted>Exited "settings">went to "Output Routing">chose "Output Monitor" Left and right as "USB Audio device" (my earphones)>Chose "Output Master" Left and Right as "HD Audio output" 1 and 2 (my soundcard)>Close.

I also made sure that the earphones volume was up, and that the "cue/mix" button was on the "mix" side. It works fine now, just like virtual DJ
