    What 'dj i/o interface' do you have? (I can't remember if the mixtrack has an internal soundcard.

    To be fair you can use pretty much any soundcard with any speakers, you might just need to buy a couple of jack converters/splitters from Maplin/Radioshack to get things working.

    I'm assuming you have this

    Are they computer speakers you plug into the computer or speakers inside the computer?

    yes, you can use it with computer speakers. you're gonna need a 2 x RCA (male) to 1/8" TRS stereo (female). This would work.

    that assumes you have regular computer speakers which come with a male 1/8" TRS stereo cable attached to them.
