    Default mixer+dascratch+laptop???????????

    i've been doing some research about the controller "dascratch" by stanton...i've seen that some people connect a mixer+ 2 dascratch's.... but could i take the music directly from the computer?and control the change from one song to another with a mixer? lol for example 1 toshiba satellite+ 2 dascratch+ 1 dmx09 by numark(or any other!!) wich one could i use? and how?

    thanks!!
    Dave!!

    Id you have a soundcard and 2 dascratch units and a analogue mixer you could have 2 sets of stereo RCA cables run from your soundcard to the back of the mixer.

    It would be kinda like plugging two cdj's into a mixer - except instead of the RCA's comming out of the controller they are comming out of your soundcard instead.

    You would just need a soundcard with 2x stereo RCA outputs.

    the usb cables from the dascratch go to the computer.

    You dont have to do anything so the mixer recognises the controllers - all you need to connect to the mixer is the audio channels comming out of traktor into your mixer.

    If you want to mix 4 channels you will need a soundcard with 4x stereo outs - this is possible using the dascratch units as they can easily control 4 decks.

    If your just starting then master one device at a time i would say - buy slowly over time as your buying decisions will evolve as you learn more and you work out where you want to go.

    So if you dont have a multi channel soundcard already pick one of them up and stick with just the VCI for a while.

    If you are really dieing for more and want 4 decks i would sooner buy two dascrastch units to go with your vci than i would buy a external mixer.

    There's that movie again.

    Some prefer regular mixers to MIDI, might sound strange to you. But it's perfectly normal for the other.
