    Default Just started using 3 decks. Fun!

    I'd been thinking about upgrading my A2DJ to an Audio 8 so I can use a third deck for samples, acapellas and what not, but just realised that I could hack my Audio 2 and split the stereo into two monos as a halfway house. Obviously this is nowt new, but I'd just never tried it myself. Anyway, it all works fine and I just had the most fun mix I've had for ages! It was also really fun to mix without cans, I've seen some recent discussion about this and thought it sounded like nonsense, but it was really fun.

    So, yeah. Just thought I'd share

    Going to get a 3rd deck soon too, really looking forward for this.

    It was also really fun to mix without cans
    What do you mean by "without cans" ?
    (i'm not a native english speaker, and i don't think it was fun to mix without
    )

    Pick yourself up an Audio 6, then you can use 4 decks AND your headphones
    Acer E5 i7 2TB 16GB ~ 512GB SSD ~ WIN 10 ~ TSP 2.11 ~ AUDIO 6 ~ X1 ~ DN-X1600 ~ X1 ~ SPECTRA ~ TWISTER ~ ATH-PRO500 MK2 ~ AT2020
