    Default Audio 2DJ + x1 + mixer + Traktor

    So I'll have my first club gig on new years eve. I have the audio 2 dj an the x1.
    My question is : how to hook up the audio 2 dj to the club mixer to get the eqs and the faders of the mixer? I suppose I won't get any visual feedback in Traktor, cause it's not connected via MIDI...and what view should I use Traktor with?

    Thanks

    Mate, what is your home set up?

    If it's not x1+audio2 into an external mixer then do you really think it's a good idea to do your first gig using that set up?

    I mean I can tell you how to do it but i'd recommend going with your home set up so you feel comfortable

    yeah do you have a mixer you can practice on this week?

    You need to hook up your audio to in external mode. Then have the audio 2 outputs set to decks a and b. Then plug your audio 2 into two channels on the mixer. Views = take off anything that's on the mixer already (channel faders, crossfader, EQ's). You will do all your cueing thru the mixer also.

    I would find a mixer to use this week and make sure you are good.
