My buddy and I are both DJ's who like to do house parties and such around town but have different systems. I like to use Mixxx and my Numark Mixtrack Pro. He uses Serato Scratch and uses a Numark Mixtrack. We talked the other day about doing a show together, somehow combining our controllers and mixing between each other.
The way we plan on doing this is each having our own MIDI controller attached to our own computers, and then having both the outputs of the controllers connected to the channel 1 and 2 inputs on a standalone mixer. Then the mixer would be connected to our sound system.
This would work by setting the cross-fader on the standalone mixer all the way to the right while I mix, then to the middle as he mixes a track into mine, then all the way over to the left so he can mix. While one person is mixing alone the other is managing the EQ's and effects, or feeling out the party, getting requests and such.
What do you guys think about this system?
Thanks in advance!
