    What gear are you using at the moment? Do you plan on running your current setup through this as well, or will this be connected separately to the soundboard/house mixer, etc?

    More information please!

    Here we go mate; less than $50 and will do exactly what you need it to

    2 line ins, a microphone input, and a fixed gain AUX in/out; 4 different input methods in total.

    Have a look at the new Gemini PS range, nice little analog mixer for no great frills/price. I use the PS4 with my 1210's but you might want to look at the PS2 or PS3 for what you are after.

    a xone 22 is my go between mixer. i mix into 1 side while someone can mix into the other side. and the sound quality is outstanding and the headroom is great. (which is important for a go between)

    I heard the Xone 22 has a significant noise floor vs a digital mixer, and I wouldn't want to add that into the chain unnecessarily.

    i have heard that too, but i heard you could really only hear it in the headphones, or when its turned up ALL the way. to be honest i have never turned up any mixer ALL the way. Its part of my gain stage so the sound coming from my pioneer mixer is coming in pretty hot, so really no need to push the xone past 75% gain. But when mixing between 2 dj's that FILTER is super lush and the eq is just amazing.

    If you want a cheap backup mixer, just get a cheap backup mixer. They sell them at almost all music supply stores.

    Something like: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Behringe...53-i1153499.gc

    Something like that would serve a couple purposes. Yeah it doesn't have a crossfader, but you can use it to connect to the outputs to your speakers/sound and then just have anyone with any equipment just plug into it.

    I'm with you on the 22, haven't regretted it once. And no I have absolutely no noise issues either.
