I'm experiencing trouble using my XDJ-RX with my Macbook Pro to output sound to my powered monitors.
Basically, I want to be able to send all sound output from the macbook thru the RX's sound card, so that I can use my monitors while doing computer work (i.e. not dj'ing =) ). I used to use my Traktor S4 for this and it was always fine acting as a sound card for mac audio. My current setup is:
* RX connected to macbook pro via USB cable
* RX connected to monitors via booth output (I could use master out as well, not sure this matters ?)
* RX is at version 2.10
* RX configured for MIDI mixing mode
* Sound output on the macbook configured to go to the RX
The problem is that if I start a song on the mac, say via iTunes, and then _any_ other sound plays, the output basically gets "retriggered" repeatedly until it becomes a distorted mess. So, for example if I'm playing a mix in iTunes, and then a random Safari window starts playing a video with sound, everything goes to hell. Very annoying.
What am I doing wrong here? I just want to be able to use the sound card on the RX as an output. Do I need to tweak MIDI settings or something? I've watched several of the setup videos that have been posted on here to make sure I'm not missing something. Most have to do with getting Rekordbox working on a computer in performance mode, not just plain audio. (btw, I don't have Rekordbox running during all of this to keep things simpler.)
