I want to know if my sound card has only one or tow stereo output its a lenovo g570
I would like to mix music on my computer (DJ) using a digital mixer but they require either two audio card or an audio card with two stereo output so i can listen to one song while playing another.
I there any way i can do this with my current setup and without having to upgrade my system.
Re: I want to know if my sound card has only one or tow...
According to the specs:
Connections & Expansion Interfaces4 x USB 2.0 VGA LAN Headphone output Microphone input Memory Card Reader5 in 1 ( SD Card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, MultiMediaCard, xD-Picture Card ) This means you only have on Headphone Output. However check to see if they are able to use USB solutions as I know there are speakers that can be run through USB.

if your desktop has two audio outputs (one for headphones and the other one to connect the speakers - both green), then you dont need dj io (or a second sound crad on the side), just go to config and chose the sound card settings to double inputs and in outputs chose both speakers and headphones' depending on what software you are using. questions email@example.com
I am sorry to disagree, but some information in the previous post is INCORRECT. DO NOT connect the output of the mixer to the MIC input. The mixer generates LINE level output that should go to the LINE-IN on the sound card. If you connect the mixer to the mic input, you will damage the sound card. MIC level inputs have an additional amplification stage.
the outputs in Traktor should be set up like this; Chanel 1 (3&4) Chanel 2 (2&1) this set up will give you a stereo sound coming out of Traktor using Numark DJ IO. Make sure the output is set up External and the Audio Devise is Numark DJ IO.
here is the details of what to plug in your sound card
line output (usually with a 1/8" stereo minijack). You can feed this into a cassette deck or an amplifier (ideally connected to a good pair of near-field monitor speakers) for playback and mixing purposes. If you have a really cheap soundcard, it won't even have this and you'll have to get your output from the... headphone jack (with a 1/8" stereo minijack). You can use this for monitoring while recording, but don't use headphones for mixing. line input (usually with a 1/8" stereo minijack). This is the only thing you should plug any of your musical recording stuff into.
I can run audio on 3 separate channels/outputs of my laptop
I use Tricerasoft Swift Elite DJ software but the areas you need to look at for troubleshooting are probably similar:
1) check the (PCDJ) software settings for selecting the channel outputs of your Indigo DJ on each deck/ player. NOTE: 1/2 and 5/6 are the same physical port (headphone port), while 3/4 and 7/8 are also shared on the Line Out port. So make sure you use for eg. one player uses 1/2, and the other player uses 3/4 ONLY IF you want them running out to separate channels on the mixer
I personally run both my decks off the same channel, ie 3/4 so that my software can do the mixing for me. My mixer only acts as an master control device where everything else connects
2) Make sure you check your IndigoDJ Console (installed to the Windows Start menu under Echo Audio, Indigo DJ), if you have any conflicts or if for some reason one particular channel pair gets inadvertently muted, resulting in no sound coming from the port.
3) I also use my onboad sound card (typically for previewing music or for an auxillary output). This is obviously controlled by the Operating system... in Windows is is through the Sound properties, default sound device. I recommend NOT using Indigo DJ as a default sound card -- but that is a personal preference.
So in this way you actually have 3 outputs for sound
As far as cabling is concerned, it depends on what you are connecting to. I use a 1/8 (mini computer) jack to 1/4 whcih then plugs into a direct box (eleminates any static hum etc), then from the DI box using an XLR cable to the mixer. Your setup may be slightly different.
Had the same problem and fixed it today. It is the mute button. Whem you change from 1-2 to 3-4 if the mute button for 1-2 does not activate you will get the sound from 1-2 thru 3-4. Just change the setting and you are away. worked for me.
Err not sure but i think i remember trying to use 2 similar SBL cards and having nothing but problems with device manager.
Theoretically you should only need one of them , combined with your motherboards on-board audio.
This will enable you to play the two seperate samples , each exiting via its own lead to suit your mix console.
All you will need is windows media player using the standard on-board audio device
+ another similar player (configured to use the SB card via options)
Leave the on-board device set as the default audio device.
The e-mu sure can do it. You just run whatever output you want into the input on the sound board. The setup is exactly the same as if you just wanted to play winamp music on the system.
It's your computer that can't handle it. Computer only has one sound output, so you can't play two separate things in two separate instances of winamp, because the sound only comes out of one place on your laptop.
You can buy a second external sound card, like the SB Live External USB Sound card, and maybe run both at the same time, having one winamp output to the external device, and the other winamp output to the laptop's internal sound card device, then one line runs to your e-mu system and the other to a pair of headphones.
