    Default Find Me A Mixer

    Hey everyone

    Im looking for a mixer for me and my friend to share and go halfs on.

    We both use laptops with traktor and each have a midi controler.
    Our master outputs then need to got through an external mixer so we can mix between the 2 of us.

    So basically can someone advise any certain mixers that arnt to expensive, have 2 channels, and do i need balanced outputs?

    Here is a picture of us practicing as u can see we are using the clubs mixer here

    I really dig Xone filters. Xone-22.

    I think really you can use any well built mixer if your are only going to use the two channels and that's it. No mixer effects, filters, etc.

    Maybe you guys should wait a bit longer until you can afford a 4ch mixer since there's two of you.. Probably get bored of 2 channels after a while. Just a suggestion!

    Other than that, for me, can't go past a pioneer.. Especially if you go for the 4ch 800

    ^ if they are mixing internal with a VCI-100 lets say...the just need ONE channel for an out put and can me play 4 decks internally. They could be pushing 8 decks out of those two Outputs.

    I think that's what he's looking for.

    yeye we have got 4 decks each essentialy

    and both have a master out each that can then be mixed over so i take over or vis versa

    dont think we need anything too flashy when we have traktor with a vci-100

    ye we have to computers running tracktor so thats 8decks in all
    and with traktor a vci-100se, a midi fighter, a reloop and a Akai LPD8 i didnt think we would need a fancy mixer with effects

    This is what i was thinking of?

    remember this is going to be your master out, so it's your sound quality that comes out of this mixer.

    If you too cheap it's gonna sound crappy. If your trying to save some bucks I would check out the Stanton M202/M203 line before I would get a Gemini.

    Xone 22 without a doubt. Haven't come across any mixers in this price range that sound so good + you get the lovely filter which you can use when switching who is playing.

    I really like my Denon DNS-X120 as a basic two channel mixer. Not too many frills, but it does have balanced outputs which I love. I found one for $150, nothing else was even close at the price range.
