    Default Software and Hardware mixing? Possible?

    Question, not sure if it's possible.

    I currently own a DJM-250, which I love (hardware mixers espically filters sound so much nicer than software). I want to expand the decks, and I have been coming up with some midi controller designs in my head that would be purely software driven. here's what i've been thinking for a set up (I use traktor currently, i also have live):

    -computer sends tracks a-b to audio card
    -audio card sends decks a & b to djm 250
    -audio card accepts master out from djm 250 (mixed) to an audio in
    -audio card accepts headphones out from djm 250 to an audio in
    -computer accepts inputs from midi controller 1 for deck a & b transport controls (usb)
    -computer accepts inputs from midi controller 2 for deck c & d transport, and mixing controls (usb)

    now here's the question:
    -can the audiocard or software combine the master output from djm 250 (tracks a & b) with ONLY the software mixed tracks (c & d) for one master output?
    -can the audio card or software combine the djm 250 headphones out (tracks a & b) with ONLY the software mixed tracks (c & d) for one headphones out?

    thanks in advance,
    -DB

    You are going to have latency issues routing a master output back into a sound card.

    The 250 has an AUX channel which you could run a 3rd deck into, but you should think about upgrading to a 4 channel mixer if you want to mix 4 decks.
