Splitting Audio On Computer?
    #5490004 - 04/07/06 03:00 PM (16 years, 4 months ago)

Basically, i'm trying to get the cue'd song to play through my headphones so I can link it up before it's channeled out through the main speakers for everyone else to hear. Much like what you would see a DJ doing.

I'm not sure if there's a simple wire I can buy, or if I need an entirely new sound card.

The people at the electronic stores I've gone to and asked have either A) Looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language, or B) Suggested some ridiculously priced module that will split my signals.

I'm just wondering if there's any tech guru's here that could suggest a moderately priced solution?

Thanks.

Well that depends on what soundcard you have. If you are running the default soundcard, which I think you are, there is no way, because there is only one output. What you'll need to do is buy a soundcard with at minimum two outputs. I would reccomend an m-audio, either a Delta or an Audiophile. They can be found for under 100 bucks, but there are models with more inputs/outputs and those are higher. But if you just want to headphone cue, 2 outputs is all thats needed.

So, I'd get a m-audio delta 440 if its in your price range (around 100 bucks), or an Audiophile model if price is really a concern. The Delta has Zero latency monitoring though, which is REALLY helpful if you use a midi keyboard or do any production stuff. It also would be helpful with djing most likely. Good luck! What program are you using for this, BTW? the best programs to dj with, are BY FAR, Ableton Live 5 and Traktor DJ.

Can I have that Delta card sit externally rather than replace my default soundcard? It'd be easier if I could just leave it on my desk rather than have to open up the computer.

Also, i've been using VTT+Bpm Resolver. It isn't so bad, but i'm sure there are a lot better progs out there, i'll try for the two you suggested.

nope, its a PCI model.

All you have to do is unscrew the side of your comp, take our your current soundcard, and pop this one in the slot though. Then you run drivers and its installed. very simple to install, can't get simpler.

if you get an external soundcard your going to have much higher latency, so unles your doing live gigs you dont need one.. Not to mention externals that would be the same as a PCI are MUCH much more expensive.

don't even bother buying another sound card, on trash night go out and look for a computer that was thrown and steal a sound card from it. most programs let you run headphones through a seperate sound card.

The chances of find a sound card for audio production purposes in the trash is like 1 in a million. Unless its already been damaged. If you go that way of finding a new card you are most likely to get a cheap $20 sounblaster card which is useless.
