Preview sounding in both speakers and headphones

Postby DJ DannyG » Mon Aug 26, 2019 10:55 am

Hi All, I'm pretty new to Mixxx, but loving it so far - however, I'm having issues with previewing tracks.
(I have a laptop (windows 7), a Traktor Splitter Cable all going into a Alto Live 1202 Mixer and then speakers)
I am trying to set up the Splitter Cable and have tried setting Master to Channel 1 and Headphones to Channel 2 (with output as Mono).
It does seem to work as I can hear the preview track clearly in my headphones, but i can also still hear it quietly behind the main track in the speakers too.
I normally only use AutoDJ as a mobile disco, so it's not wildly inportant, but it would be useful to preview tracks myself before playing!
Any advice would be appreciated! :-)

Are you lowering the volume fader for the deck you're listening to in headphones?
I heard FLAC and I haven't gone back.

It could also be some crosstalk comming from the connector or the cable splitter itself (or even from the soundcard), although I should not be hearable on normal conditions.
