 +===== Compatibility =====
 +This controller is a class compliant USB MIDI and audio device, so it can be used without any special drivers on GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. ​
 +However, if you wish to use the [[http://​mixxx.org/​manual/​latest/​chapters/​configuration.html#​audio-api|ASIO sound API]] under Windows, please install the latest driver package available from the [[https://​support.hercules.com/​en/​product/​djcontrolstarlight-en//​|Support page]].
 +
 +
 +===== Sound card setup =====
 +This controller has built-in 4 channel output sound card, with MASTER output and HEADPHONE output (both 3.5mm jack).
 +
 +* Open **Preferences > Sound Hardware** \\ 
 +* Select the  **Output** tab \\ 
 +* From the **Master** ​ drop-down menu, select the audio interface, then  **Channels 1-2**  \\ 
 +* From the  **Headphones** ​ drop-down menu, select the audio interface, then  **Channels 3-4** \\ 
 +* Click  **Apply** ​ to save the changes.\\ ​
 +
 +Please refer to [[https://​mixxx.org/​manual/​latest/​en/​chapters/​example_setups.html#​laptop-and-external-usb-audio-interface|the user manual]] for more details about the audio configuration in Mixxx.
 +
 +== Please note: ==
 +
 +The **Master** and **Headphone** knobs are hardware controls and interact directly with the integrated sound card's output. Although they also send MIDI messages, they have NOT been mapped in Mixxx, so do not expect an on-screen reaction when using them.
 +This was done to prevent the knobs to adjust both the gain on the controller'​s sound card and in Mixxx.
 +
 +Please refer to [[https://​mixxx.org/​manual/​latest/​en/​chapters/​djing_with_mixxx.html#​djing-gain-staging|the user manual]] in order to learn how to set your levels properly when using Mixxx.  ​
