    Default How would you route this?

    I want to practice scratching in a bar while there's no DJ playing but there will be music on as the bar will still be open. How can I route it so that I can listen to traktor in my headphones and I can still use the crossfader etc? Obviously just have like an ipod on one channel for the music in the bar.

    Thanks for any help

    ?? I don't understand. It's a bar so they have only one general music system. Mixer into amp, amp into speakers

    This has to be one of the most basic questions I've ever read here?

    Assume you've got a (minimum) 2 channel mixer? Plug the iPod into 1 channel. Keep that fader UP. That'll send the iPod music to the master out (speakers).

    Scratch on the other channel. Turn that fader all the way DOWN. Activate PFL (pre-fader listen) or activate headphone cue for that channel, and your laughing. You can even route the iPod into your 'phones too and scratch along to that.

    Suggest you search on-line for the manual for that mixer and learn how to split cue.

    THAT is the absolute MOST BASIC aspect of DJ'ing. You should already know that if your playing out, eh?

    This may be the overly obvious question, but how come you want to "practice" at a bar? why not just do it at home?
