You can choose to use another sound card that you may already have, or you
can use the Xone:2D as a sound device.
To do this, you need to configure the audio device in djDecks. You can find this configuration in Options->In/Out
Select ASIO - XONE:2D USB ASIO driver as Output Driver, and either Output Mode 4 if you want to output each deck to a different output channel, or Output Mode 5 if you want to do the mixing with the Xone:2D and use a headphone for monitoring.
The Output channels should be 0/1, 2/3, 4/5 and 6/7.
For the inputs, also select the same ASIO input device, and channels 0/1, 2/3, 4/5 and 6/7.
If you are using Output Mode 5 and have headphones connected to the monitor output on the Xone:2d, Switch the SC OUT 3-4 switch on, and the other switches off. Switching on SC OUT 1-2 will allow you to monitor the master output.
To use the Xone:2D's controls, you have to activate it in the configuration.
To do this, open the options window, and select the General tab.
There, activate the Midi checkbox, and click the 'XML Config' button next to it.
Now select the Xone:2D from the list, and select the allenheath_xone2d.xml configuration from the drop-down box.
Finally, click 'Connect' to connect the device.
The default mapping is based on the Traktor 2-deck overlays which can be downloaded on the Xone:2D product page
