Fedora21 - Mixxx -- extra sound card on Dell Latitude E6500

Hello All,

not sure whether to put this post under hardware, software of laptop...

My son uses Mixxx on Fedora21, installed on his Dell Latitude E6500.
He's having trouble playing music and listening through his head phones at the same time.
I asked somebody who uses Mixxx as well. ( but on Windows ) He said it would take a second sound card.

I googled this, I think the only way to have a second sound card on this laptop is to use an external - usb - sound card.

My question is now : would an external sound card work? Will this solve my son's Mixxx problem?

Greetings, Johan

A usb sound card should just show up as another device in Mixxx, so you can assign each channel as required.
I'm not sure if there are any specific chipsets that are better than others.
I've only had a go with a borrowed one (that I don't recall the name of) and it "just worked".
If it's for a laptop, maybe you could take it with and try before you buy.
