    Default Barebones Mixer for X1

    So suppose I want to have an easy to move set-up, with the center of control being the kontrol x1. I have an audio 4, so all I need is a good way to control crossfading, volume and eq (with two decks total). Are there any decent and hopefully cheap mixers that are very very compact and have just these features (as well as cueing)?

    Well the least expensive solution would be the X-Session Pro (aka the Torq Mixlab). Really though, it would fit the bill. If you wanted a more "professional" solution, I would look elsewhere though.

    Ecler nuo 2.0 is easily the best compact mixer and this price isn't too bad

    vestax make some good, small, 2 channel mixers too. You'll probably be able to pick one up cheap. Definitely worth a look.

    Numark M2 is the best option I've seen if you want a piss cheap 2 channel mixer that has 3 band EQ.

    Ecler Nuo 2.0 if you wanna spend a bit more cash.

    Why do you need cueing on the mixer if you have an Audio 4? Have you though about using the X1 as the mixer? You have three pages to use so one of them could easily be mapped to mixer functions, there's already a few mixer mappings out there but they all focus on four deck control. It takes a little getting used to encoders as faders, but it's not that bad.

    I've got my X1 mapped as mixer and used it on New Years to jam at a buddy's house. It can be done but I wouldn't use it for anything special. A mixer relieves tons of issues. I would personnaly get an Xsession midi mixer. On thing with that is that you have soundcard, mixer, and X1 to hook up USB cables to.

    But for a simple party with the use of just a few effects 1 X1 works pretty good.

    There's a review on the blog. Maybe it will help you, if you haven't already noticed that post.
