Ddj 200 Setup

Posted on  by admin

What kind of hardware should I get to DJ with Mixxx?

Bare minimum equipment for DJing:

  • computer (preferably a laptop)
  • splitter cable or audio interface
  • speakers
  • audio cables and adapters

Helpful but not strictly necessary:

  • audio interface with 4 mono output channels (2 stereo pairs)
  • controller and/or turntables with timecode vinyl
  • surge protector
  • cases for laptop, controller, and headphones
  • backpack or other carrying case
  • mouse
  • portable hard drive
  • powered USB hub
  • custom fader and knob caps to customize your gear

See the manual fordiagrams and descriptions of setups with different kinds of hardware.

See the Beginner DJ Links page for more helpfulresources.

Hardware compatibility

Because Mixxx is free software —free as in artistic freedom, not just price — we strive to make it workwith as much hardware as we can. Mixxx is collaboratively developed by acommunity of volunteers and we can only make mappings for controllersthat we have. If hardware does not work with Mixxx, that does not meanit is impossible, it only means that no one has made it work with Mixxxyet. Anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to make Mixxxcompatible with more hardware.

Controllers

Mixxx can work with any controller that sends MIDI or HID signals toyour computer; it just needs a controller mapping to tell Mixxx what todo with the signals. Standards compliant MIDI controllers do not needany special drivers on Linux, macOS, or Windows. Standards compliant HIDcontrollers do not need any special drivers. Most DJ controllers arestandards compliant MIDI controllers and so are these in the tablesbelow. Exceptions from the standard are noted in the tables below.

Audio interfaces

Controllers that have integrated audio interfaces often have a USB AudioClass compliant audio interface. Sound cards that aren't USB Audio Classcompliant need a driver for each OS. USB Audio Class compliant audiointerfaces, both stand-alone and integrated into controllers, do notneed any special drivers for Linux or macOS. On Windows, they can beused without any special drivers, but a driver is needed from themanufacturer to use the recommended ASIO soundAPI.Sound cards that are advertised for use with iOS devices are classcompliant.

Unlike some proprietary DJ programs, Mixxx works with any audiointerface that your operating system has a driver to use—including fortimecode vinyl (DVS) use.

Determining USB class compliance

If you are considering buying a controller or audio interface, theeasiest way to tell if it is USB class compliant before you buy it is tosearch for macOS drivers for the device on the manufacturer's website,even if you do not use macOS. If it is advertised as compatible withmacOS but there are no drivers to download for macOS, it does notrequire drivers from the manufacturer on macOS because it is classcompliant. If it is advertised as compatible with iOS, it is classcompliant because Apple does not let manufacturers provide proprietarydrivers on iOS. USB class compliant audio, MIDI, and HID devices can beused with Mixxx on Linux, macOS, and Windows.

Not mapped controllers

There are too many DJ controllers out there to list. Some of these controllers may have mappings (of unverified quality and may beincomplete) posted on the forums that have not(yet) been included with Mixxx. If a controller you own or are interested in getting is not listed here, search theforum to see if anyone has posted a mapping. If you are willing to put in the effort to map one of these controllers, please get the controller, map it, and contribute the mapping to Mixxx.

Note regarding Native Instruments controllers

Native Instruments' newer DJ controllers are USB HID class compliant devices (source). The Windows and macOS drivers can translate the HID signals to MIDI, but this is not available on GNU/Linux. So, if you make a mapping for these controllers, please make an HID mapping so it is compatible with every OS that Mixxx runs on.

Native Instruments' first generation DJ controllers use a proprietary protocol called NHL that Mixxx does not support. The Windows and macOS driverscan switch these controllers to a MIDI mode by pressing certain buttons (see the Native Instrumentswebsitefor the button combination for each controller), which could be mapped to Mixxx. Unfortunately, because this is done by the driver and not the controller firmware, these controllers cannot be used as MIDI controllers on GNU/Linux. However, the snd-usb-caiaq driver in Linuxsupports the audio interfaces in at least some of these devices. It also registers the signals from some of the controllers as generic Linuxinput events. To get these devices to work with Mixxx on GNU/Linux, either the driver would need to be modified to translate these signalsto HID or MIDI, Mixxx would need to be able to read Linux input events, or a program would need to translate the Linux input events to HID or MIDI.

Microphones

Mixxx can work with any microphone that can be plugged into your audio interface. Refer to the MixxxManual for a detailed explanation of different options for setting up Mixxxwith microphones. As explained in the manual, USB microphones are not recommended because many of them cannot be used with direct monitoring with Mixxx.

The table of USB audio interfaces below has notes regarding use of some audio interfaces with microphones. As explained in the manual, Behringer Xenyx and Yamaha AG03/AG06 mixers are not recommended because their audio interfaces only have 2 channels for output.

Splitter cables

Splitter cables are the cheapest way to get two separate sound outputs from your computer. These plug into the onboard audio interfacebuilt into computer motherboards and split the stereo signal into two separate mono signals. However, onboard audio interfaces are not goodquality, and you lose the stereo effect of hearing different sounds arranged in space.

Devices marketed as "headphone splitter" instead of DJ splitters duplicate one stereo signal in two jacks. These cannot be used forheadphone cueing. Also, generic stereo-to-mono splitter cables or adapters typically have two mono jack outputs. Plugging headphones orstereo speakers into a generic stereo-to-mono splitter will only play sound on one side of the headphones or speakers.

Available DJ splitter cables:

  • Native Instruments Traktor DJCable:$10

Audio interfaces

To be able to hear the next track you want to mix in before your audience hears it, you need two separate sound outputs. Most computerscome with an audio interface built into the motherboard with only 1 stereo 1/8“ headphone output (2 mono channels). Onboard audio interfacesbuilt into computers generally have bad sound quality and may pick up interference from other devices in the computer, especially the charger or power supply. It is recommended to use one audio interface with at least 4 mono output channels (2 stereo channels). For vinyl control, it is recommended to use an audio interface with phono preamplifiers.

Compatibility

As stated above, Mixxx can use any audio interface that your OS has a driver to use. All USB audio interfaces listed in the table below workwith Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Thunderbolt audio interfaces can operate at lower latencies than USB or Firewire audio interfaces, but are generally only compatible with macOS.

USB audio interfaces

These devices allow a computer to output and input sound. Any audio interface that your operating system has a driver to use can be usedwith Mixxx. All the USB audio interfaces in the table below are compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux unless otherwise noted. It is possible to use just an audio interface plus a keyboard & mouse to use Mixxx, but a separate controller makes using Mixxx easier, more intuitive, and more fun.

An audio interface with at least 4 mono output channels (2 stereo pairs) is recommended for most uses. Refer to the Mixxxmanual for details. If your audio interface does not have 4 output channels, it ispossible to use multiple audio interfaces. However, this increases latency. On Windows, it can be tricky to configure Mixxx to use both of them at the same time depending on the sound APIs supported by each audio interface's driver.

Surround sound (5.1 or 7.1) cards are not recommended. They sometimes do signal processing in hardware or in the driver to split a stereo signal into multiple components. It may be possible to configure them to output separate master and headphone stereo signals, but it is often tricky to do so.

This table only lists a handful of available USB audio interfaces that are currently in production and suitable for use with Mixxx. There aremany more options available that may be better for you depending on your input and output needs and the sound quality you can afford. Yougenerally get the sound quality you pay for with audio interfaces. The Mixxx manual has more information to help decide on an audio interface to use.

Mixers with audio interfaces

These are devices that can mix audio from different sources withoutneeding a computer. They also have a built-in USB audio interface toconnect directly to a computer without needing a separate audiointerface. They tend to be much more expensive than comparable#controllers and #USB audiointerfaces. They are often found installedin venues for multiple DJs to use.

Each conversion of a signal between digital and analog forms adds noiseand distortion. So, if the mixer's processing is done digitally, it isbest to use the audio interface built into a mixer (or a digital inputif the mixer has one). When analog outputs of a separate audio interfaceare plugged into a digital mixer, the audio interface converts thedigital signals to analog, then the mixer converts the analog signalsback to digital for its processing. If the input to the mixer isdigital, those two conversions do not occur.

However, some of these mixers are analog mixers and the built in audiointerface converts the digital signals from the computer to analog forthe mixer's analog processing. In that case, using the mixer's built inaudio interface may or may not sound better than a separate audiointerface, depending on the quality of each of the audio interfaces.

Many of these mixers also send MIDI signals to the computer over USB,which could be mapped to control Mixxx.

Most of these have a single USB port, but some have two. Two USB portsallows two different DJs to use the mixer's audio interface at the sametime with their own computer for collaborative DJ sets and easy,seamless transitions between DJs.
