    Default Connecting CDJ and controller at once. How?

    Hey guys,
    I've got a gig this friday and I still have one single question that would be very important for this friday.
    The question is: Can you connect your controller to the sound output (like you would from the mixer to the sound) even when the CDJ's are connected? I don't want to cut the sound off when making a transitition.

    According to some research I did, I should do the follow:
    - Connect controller to laptop
    - Connect the amplifier/speakers on the output 1-2?
    - Play

    My controller is : Hercules 4-Mx

    So, is there maybe a way to do this?
    Thanks for reading and I hope you can help me

    Greets,
    Rob

    yes. CDJ can go into one channel and controller can go into another channel. Just turn up the mixer channel, then use your control. Head there early and sound check.

    You would not connect your controller directly to their soundsystem, you would connect the master output of the controller to the line in on one channel of the mixer. So if it is a 4 channel mixer just run the output into a spare channel or unplug one of the CDJs and run everything through that channel on the mixer.
