When I’m mixing in party, for some kind of music (funk, R&B), I’d like to use vinyl control, but for other kind of musics (electro, house), I’d prefer use CD control. Unfortunately, my external sound card is only a 3 stereo in and 3 stereo out.
I found some RCA switches to set the source to the CD player or the turntable, but, when I set the «control» in Mixxx, I have to choose between MixVibes / Tracktor / Serato vinyl or to a Serato CD.
My question is : does the timecode on a vinyl is very different from a CD one ? What will happen if I set Mixxx to «Serato Vinyl» but send a «Serato CD» signal to Mixxx ?
Ok, I understand the best solution would be to change my soundcard but a 4 stereo input / 4 stereo output is expensive and I’m not really in mood to change my soundcard. More over, if I set Mixxx in «4 decks» mode, it really takes a lot of space on my screen, so, I’d prefer avoid this solution.
Thank you for your answers,
