    the only way to sync two pc┤s is via midi cable. but you┤re a2 has no midi i/o and i don┤t know what your buddy uses as his interface.
    me and my buddy just whatch on the other ones bpm and sync manually to the beat, that works quite well!

    Or you can send midi over ethernet. There are a couple of tools on the internet to do this. Google is your friend on that one...

    if your midi controllers have proper midi in's and outs you could use a midi cable between them, otherwise your looking at OSC or midi over ethernet

    this might help:

    or beatmatch manually, not a big problem, but with sync with that guy was simpler.

    in theory yes you can sync as many as you like, however it would be easier with OSC rather than midi

    but is it possible with your controllers? i dont use the controllers you have, but there is no reason why you cannot send midi clock using the controller midi in and outs on each controller, if they have the standard 5pin sockets

    I managed out how to send midi from pc to ma usino the Default midi audio of the Mac, so thanks for the hint!!

    Now another question, i got a mixer at home, that i'm not using, we can plug our RCA in 2 chanel of this mixer and the Connect to the audio club.
    But i was thinking of a way for not using it, because there Will be too much gear to bring.
    There is a way to merge our RCA cables in one, so we can plug in a chanel of the club mixer and not use all the 2 decks chanel?( a guy playing Cdj is after us, and then we're going to play another time at last, after another Cdj duo, so we can't use Cdj chanels)
