Creative SoundBlaster ExtremeMusic Edition Question

Hey everyone,

I've got a new Dell at work that I am using to create a DJ system with.  The tower came with an Creative SoundBlaster ExtremeMusic Edition soundcard in it.  

Our DJ uses a software app called PC-DJ to cue the music and keep track library lists.  Now the PC-DJ requires a multi-channel soundcard to be able to have 2 seperate outputs of sound...one output would be for the song that is playing and the other output is for cueing the next song with your ear phones for example.

Now I can't tell from what the documentation says if this card is able to do that or not.  It does divide music up for say 4.1 or 7.1 channel surround sound systems...but I think the person that ordered the computer for me was under the impression that these surround sound channels can allow for 2 seperate streams of music to be played seperately...think of it as having the functionality of 2 sound cards on 1 sound card board.

My question is...can this card do this?
Here's the card:

Thanks a ton peeps (o:

I have an M-Audio Delta410 that will output up to 10 channels of sound (and accept 4 inputs, hence the name), and has a mixer that lets you direct sound to whatever channel you want.  I don't think the SoundBlaster supports separate output channels as you desire.
