I bought and installed successfully INDIGO DJ soundcard, it worked perfectly for a week. Suddenly now it starts to behave strangely.
I use INDIGO DJ mainly with TRAKTOR 3.3 and an external mixer. I've been using the 2 Phones exits on INDIGO DJ soundcard to play 1 track on each channel of my mixer. it was working flawlessly until now!
the problem I have now is:
basically Phones 3-4 work fine [I hear track B], while with Phones 1-2 both tracks [A+B] can be heard at the same time.
this means that if I play track B on Phones 3-4, the same track will be coming out from Phones 1-2 as well! it shouldn't be this way, only track A should be coming out of Phones 1-2!!
I know for sure that it's not a problem with Traktor [I unistalled and re-installed both INDIGO DJ and TRAKTOR] because there's also another problem:
there's a little volume jog on the INDIGO DJ soundcard itself that controls the volume of the music been played through INDIGO DJ soundcard, it worked fine before [even outside TRAKTOR] but now it only controls the volume of Phones 3-4.
for example if I open Windows Media Player to play some music, I will hear the same track on both Phones 3-4 & Phones 1-2, only difference is that the first is controlled by the volume jog on INDIGO DJ soundcard, the second will play at max volume in any case!!
before this problem, when I used to open WMP to play some music, the sound was only coming out of Phones 1-2!
why do I have the same track coming out of both channels? that shouldn't happen!!
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.

Hey, try changing your default playback device. Your controller may be trying to tell your PC that it has a speaker, changing the playback device to your speakers may fix this. (if using windows, right click on your speaker icon - lower right hand corner, select 'playback devices' and then choose your usual device - if you don't know which one is, then just select different ones and see what works)
in Echo console
The phones output is Analog 1-2 and the line output is Analog 3-4. In the Echo console, you can choose between the Analog 1-2 bus and the Analog 3-4 bus in the upper right hand corner. In the Analog 1-2 bus make sure you have virtual output 3-4 muted. In the Analog 3-4 bus make sure you have the virtual output 1-2 muted. From within your audio application you can now assign your headphones output and your house (line) output.
Hope this is some help.
Try to re-sync the keyboard to the base but first, keep away any wireless device like your mouse from the
receiver. Make sure your keyboard is just near the base.
Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink. Follow the instructions on the dialog box that might appear. If there is no dialog box, press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the keyboard. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful.
If the resynchronization fails, try to reinstall everything and make sure you are installing the correct driver for your OS.
If it is only the keyboard that suddenly stopped working? You might want to ask for a replacement since it is still under warranty.
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.
you dont have to use 2 soundcards because the system will only use 1 soundcard, putting 2 soundcards will just cause chaos to your system. anyways, you could use a special kind of soundcard to have great results.
have you recently upgraded any part of your hardware, software or operating system? I had one of these for a powerbook 3 years ago. And i used the software monitor to control the output busses, but Believe 1 is intended for monitor out, and the other for main out. So, ideally unless your processor or sound generating application can handle sending 2 separate signals, 1 to each out ( like serato or torq ) that is normal operation.
