U-mix44 too quiet

Postby Basi on 17 Dec 2013, 10:56

Hi there,

I bought the U-Mix44 to use it for a small and light travel DJ setup (MacBook Pro 2009 with Traktor 2, iPad with Lemur as a controller).

I had two gigs with it and both suffered from a waaay to quiet music output from my U-Mix. The master output as well as the headphones levels are very quiet and I had to crank up the gain on all systems to get some soundlevel - but of course the quality became very very bad.

So - will I have to give back this soundcard and get the one from native instruments (seems to work great) or is there a solution that will let me perform properly with it? (I would like the letter as I love the inputs ;)


Many thanks!
Sebastian

:cool: couple of points of intrest ,, first regerster your software licence key on the fourm ,,if the sc was purched with said software ,,
next give us info as to how you have it set up ,ie os ,audio config ,,using tc or not ,, ,if software was bundled with sc have you tried setting it up and do you get the same results ,,have you tried using the sc with another music player and what are the results ,,
any info pertaing to setting it up for tractor will have to be gotten from there software fourm ,,unless a user is familiar with its set up ,
sorry not to be able to help you as of now ,,lack of info and knowledge on my part for setting the U-Mix sc :cool:

Hi mate,

thanks for your answer but sorry - I dont really understand your reply.
What Software Key? I dont use any mixvibes software but only the soundcard and if it came with software or a key in the bundle its packed in a box a few thousand kilometers from here. (As I am in Johannesburg and the box in Munich ;)

Im using OSX 10.8.5 on a mac book pro 2009.

I dont know what you mean with audio config. I use Traktor and simply tell it in the configs that the U44 is the SC and setup the chanels, nothing extraordinary there.
I dont know what tc means - I use traktor and the iPad with Lemur to controll it. Nothing fancy, no other software.
I have not tried any other software as the only one on my mac would be ITCH and this one wont play with it anyways. (and traktor is my fav software to play with and i am not planning on changing that)

Would you just please tell me if the u44 would be able to reach club usable sound levels or wether its just not able to?

thx
Sebastian

:cool: :eek: sorry about that but you gave more info ,, the answer to your last :?: is yes it does reach club usable levels ,,
:cool: dont worry about the licence key as no software was purched ,
:cool: :cool: tc means timecode ,as in vinal record or cd that has a code on it to control the software ,,
:cool: audio config is how the sound card is set up to play
not being familiar with tractors set up ,,you might have to go to there fourm to get info /user manual ,,.
:cool: will look for a link for the user manual for sc on this site to try to help ,,

Hi Daniel,
thanks for the fast reply! :)

I am not using time code, nether vinyl nor CD but traktor with MP3/WAV only.
The SC manual (which I downloaded) does not contain any usable infos actually, its just says connect it and tell tractor to use it... thats it.
The forum does not give any more advice either :(

:cool: :cool: try checking out the Cross manual ,, has info as to setting up external sc ,,, only familiar with my set up ,,never used the U-Mix sc ,,

sounds like a setting is in correct ,,hopeing someone familiar with the sc would chime in with better info ,,
trying to help not hurt ,, another resource is the search function for postings about the sc ,, might be teidious ,,but might give some insight
