Hello. I'm using (or trying to use) the maya 44 usb, traktor and traktor timcode vinyl. When I play vinyl records through the maya 44 soundcard, it sounds low and very mono like even though I select line on the mixer. By the way, I'm using a Numark Mixdeck as my mixer which has its own soundcard. Can you help?

how can i get this item to be compaitalbi with virtual dj to use all the effects
null on Jun 10, 2011
BEST ANSWER: I would suggest calling Numark. 401-658-3131
Okay I know this should be simple: I purchased this to hook up to my computer that is playing off of a Numark CD MIX 2. Right now I connect to my computers headphone jack and then the back of the mixer into the RCA jacks. I've read the owners manual. What hooks up to 'analog in' and what to 'analog out'? I've got plenty of rca cables, just don't want to risk injury to anything. Do I still need to use the install CD, even though I'm not doing any recording? I just use Itunes now but hope to start with some DJ software soon. Thanks!

Is there way to get more volume out of this, when I plugged it into my laptop via the usb I lost a lot og headroom compared to plugging my laptop into the headphone jack ( midi) and out to the mixer bypassing this unit altogether, but I only get one channel.

Rick on Oct 10, 2010
BEST ANSWER: The way to adjust volume is by controlling it from your computer directly. For more options check the Versa Port from American Audio. Please call us for further assistance.
How come the volume is so low when I plug this into my laptop as compared to just using the headphone jack on my laptop without using this unit. I lose a lot of headroom on my external mixer. And yes I did bring up the audio volume controller on my laptop.
Rick on Oct 5, 2010
BEST ANSWER: The headphone is WAY hotter than the -10db outputs. Try adjusting your internal sound card volume for input /output unity

I Can this interface be used with the serato software and time codes serato?
null on Mar 19, 2010
BEST ANSWER: This interface cannot be used with the Serato Software.
Can this audio device process 4 independent audio streams.

My application requires monitoring 4 input channels, processing the audio, and sending output to 4 unique audio channels.

This unit might be a lot easier than programming around 4 separate sound cards if each of the inputs and outputs can carry a separate and unique signal.
AD5FU on Feb 24, 2010
BEST ANSWER: You may process 4 channels, although they will be 4 mono channels as opposed to 2 stereo channels.

WJ on Jan 16, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Yes although each track would have to be mono. This unit has 4 channels in, which consists of 2 left and 2 right.
Can this interface be used with the serato software?
null on Jan 15, 2010
BEST ANSWER: No, you will need the SL1 for Serato. Unfortunately they didn't make it to work with a universal Interface.

Excellent Product
Pros: Clear Sound,Professional Functions

Beautiful quality, with ASIO latency is 4ms record and 7ms playback (compared to 50ms or more for a normal sound card). Full 96kHz/24-bit on all 8 channels, has level indicators on all channels (in and out) that help troubleshoot problems quickly. Lets you easily convert your CD players or turntables into controllers for your laptop setup. The speed and quality are amazing. Caveat emptor: You do kind of have to know what you're doing with audio equipment and your software to get this working the way it should.

Turns economical to professional!!!
Pros: Professional Functions,Easy To Use,Clear Sound

This has taken my "econmical" CD/Mixer rig to professional quality. Use this card to turn your cd players into controllers for your DJ software from you PC. 2 cdplayers+Mixer+PC+maya = Pro mp3 DJ rig. Remember the cost of Serrato? This is totally worth it to get to the next level.

great interface for the price
Pros: Versatile,Clear Sound

I used to use Final Scratch 2 and it was a hassle with the connections as I am mobile. This little guy connects easily and doesn't drop anything. I use it with Virtual Vinyl, 2 denon s1000s and a denonx900, I also use AISO4ALL since I have Vista operating system, the included drivers are for xp and 2000. It does take a bit of tweaking initially, especially if you want to run play cds thru, but after that your good to go

Great interface for running timecodes!!!
Pros: Easy To Use,Clear Sound,Compact,Lightweight

I bought the Maya 44 as an audio interface to run with virtual dj. It took some time and thought to setup the timecodes but after I got it running, it worked flawlessly! I was able to scratch, cue my music, crossfade with ease, use effects and much more without ever touching my laptop. I reccomend this product for any beginnner DJ's who arent quite ready for serato... or even professionals who just want a basic setup for the night. This piece of equipment also works for recording but I myself havnt tested these features. It also came with all the necisary drivers and even cubase5 software for recording and effects! Overall I am very happy with this product and have already reccomended it to many other DJ's!
Thanks PSSL!

Great Price, Good Sound
Pros: Easy To Use,Clear Sound
Cons: Driver for Windows Vista

Well, this piece of equipment is great. For the price? is worth it! But i dont know for other people who bought it, but for me, the only problem that i had with this is that it takes me to the BLUE SCREEN of death on my laptop. this happens to me every time i unplug it, i guess because i have Windows Vista? But im not sure, they should have a better driver for the Vista computers. But overall, This is a great sound card!! Works great with Virtual DJ!!

Only place in town
Pros: Lightweight,Versatile,Easy To Use,Compact,Clear Sound
Cons: Hard to find

This is a great product with great versatility. It works with most programs out there and is small and convenient for hiding unlike other bulky sound cards. PSSL will always be the first to get Maya and will be the first place anyone should go to find this.

I recomend it and buy it again!!
Pros: Easy To Use,Lightweight,Clear Sound,Durable,Compact,Versatile

A must if you are running windows 7 64 bit, since it won't read numark's virtual vinyl soundcard. The sound it produces, out performs numark's.

Great Price. Great Product.
Pros: Easy To Use

I bought this a few weeks ago to continue diving into the digital world of my mobile dj business. It works great....and for the price...its a steal. I have done a couple of school dances with this unit and it has not failed me. I use it with Virtual DJ and a B-52 Prodigy set-up. Easy set up and break down...I just keep it connected to my Prodigy inside the roadcase, when I get to my gig I just plug the usb into my computer and i'm ready to go.

Great for Virtual DJ
Pros: Clear Sound,Easy To Use,Versatile,Compact,Lightweight

I had timecode vinyl working on Virtual DJ 6.0 within 20 minutes with this soundcard. Small size fits anywhere and quality is great. Very low latency, couldn't even tell the difference between real record and timecode!
