Echo Indigo DJ Soundcard

Much can be said on the subject of soundcards. Most of it I was to discover was more relevant for producers of music who are recording external sources.

For DJ’ing purposes, reliability, portability and simplicity are key. If you have a laptop with a PCMIA slot then the Echo Indigo DJ card is absolutely fantastic. It is by far the smallest solution; it sounds great, works reliably and is perfectly suited to DJ’ing.

I have a much more comprehensive audio interface with multiple outs. This is useful when I route audio to separate channels of an external mixer – my DJM600 for example. However, in nearly all cases I prefer to use the Echo Indigo for DJ’ing and route all channels via the Master Out within Live.

Setting it up for headphone cueing is easy once you have the hang of the control panel. It’s even easier when you have Vinkalmann’s Guide to using the Echo Indigo DJ Card.

I also set the control panel so audio from other programs like i-Tunes or media Monkey go to both outs at all times. This way I can listen on headphones or via my Monitors without having to switch any cables or plug headphones into another slot.

Happy customers…

I come from a band background writing and recording music and have recently started DJing. Prior to starting the course I had played with Ableton Live but found it to be very daunting. The 8 week course presents the functionality of Ableton Live in a logical way that gets you understanding and laying down tracks and doing your own re-mixes in no time. Every week of this course there was something that I learned about Ableton that blew me away. Tim is a great teacher and the course is highly recommended for anybody interested in electronic music production.
