I'd like to add, I don't expect to hear all 4 decks playing at one. I understand that since there are only two faders, I can only hear two tracks playing at once. I just want the ability to load up a track on deck 3 or 4, then be able to switch to that deck with just one click on the display screen, and have the fader recognize that I'm now controlling deck 3 or 4
XDJ-RX3 decks 3 & 4 through Rekordbox
When using the RX3 in Performance mode, I can select the deck number on the left side of the display screen, and it will change to either deck 3 or 4. I can then load up a track on deck 3 or 4, and play it. Rekordbox also shows the track playing on deck 3 or 4, and I can actually have 4 tracks playing at once. The problem is that the two faders on the RX3 cannot control decks 3 or 4, so I can't hear the track playing on 3 or 4. I imagine you're going to tell me that the RX3 doesn't support the functionality of switching the fader to from deck 1 to deck 3, etc.. which is a shame, because it seems like the feature is practically built in already. I'm seeing a track playing on the screen on my RX3 on deck 3/4.. It seems like all this unit would need is a software update to switch the fader to a new deck. Can this be something that's implemented for the RX3 in the future?

I deleted it because it was a mistake.
I don't seem to have those options. My Mixer Mode is set to XDJ-RX3, and in the audio preferences, I only have XDJ-RX3 ASIO Ch.1 and Ch.2, pictured below. I am able to produce the image you have above only when I select my soundcard instead of the XDJ-RX3 ASIO, which is displayed as so: Line (4- Steinberg UR22C), however upon doing so I cannot scroll through the tracks in my Rekordbox library on the XDJ-RX3 itself.
Also, if I select anything for deck 3 or 4 in the image below, it removes that line from Output Deck 1 or 2.
Basically, the RX3 is not intended for 4 deck performance.
Mixer mode: External. (XDJ-RX3 MIXER MODE: XDJ-RX3)
Every time you switch DECK, you have to change the rekordbox settings yourself.
The only way to use it without changing the rekordbox settings is to use it in Mixer mode INTERNAL (XDJ-RX3 MIXER MODE: MIDI CONTROL).
