Mixxx Using External Drive

Djay pro apk 2018. Oct 17, 2012 The Mixxx interface is straight-forward and will be familiar if you've used any other software DJ apps. The bottom of the interface is a list of songs (with appropriate information such as artist, title, year of release, duration, genre and more), and the top has two displays, one for each of two source tracks.

Mixxx Using External DriveDrive

Yes. There are two ways to do it depending on what you want to achieve:

External Drive Staples

  • Direct deck outputs: Direct deck outputs is a feature of Mixxx 1.9.0 onwards. Set the outputs in Options→Preferences→Sound Hardware and you're done. If you are on 1.8.x or below, the trick is to force Mixxx's master output to play back the left/top track, and the headphone output to playback the right/bottom track. (Each track will come out a separate output, suitable for plugging right into an external DJ mixer.) The way one does this is by sliding Mixxx's crossfader all the way to the left, and turning on the headphone cue for the right channel. This forces the first track to play out the master out, and the second track to play out the headphone out. (Since both outputs are now going straight into an external mixer, you'd use the headphone cue on the mixer as well as it's crossfader.) Using an external mixer is also described briefly in the Threadbox tutorial.
  • Software mixing as an additional sound source: If you want to mix on-screen but need to integrate with an external mixer (such as when playing CDs and/or records as well, or in a radio studio) you can plug the headphone output into one channel of the mixer, and the main output into another. Then bring the channel fader of the headphone one all the way down on the mixer and set it to play in your headphones all the time (thereby adding Mixxx's headphone bus to the mixer's.) Then use the other fader (with Mixxx's main output) when you want to bring Mixxx's output into/out of the main mix.
