Headphone output of GIAPORT HD/HD+
We often get asked about the output signals the headphone output of our GIGAPORT
HD or GIGAPORT
HD+ is sending out. There are two headphone outputs (available as a 1/8"
connector on GIGAPORT HD and 1/4" connector on GIGAPORT HD+).
The output labeled Mix sends out a mix of all output channels (1/2,
3/4, 5/6 and 7/8). This makes it good for headphone monitoring in a typical
recording setup, but it might be a limitation in many DJ setups.
The output labeled 1/2 instead sends out the same signal as line output channel
1/2, making it independent from channels 3 to 8. This is great if you want to
use GIGAPORT HD or GIGAPORT HD+ in a computer DJ setup without the use of an
external DJ mixer or a separate headphone amplifier as it provides one stereo
channel pair for prelistening via headphones.
