Play a mix on a bluetooth speaker while previewing on wired headphones in Mac OS

Wired headphones are generally recommended for DJing since wired headphones have no latency, while most bluetooth headphones have a latency which can disturb the DeeJay operations.

Bluetooth speakers can be used in DJing to play the music for the audience : bluetooth latency is not disturbing for the audience.


Here is a process on Mac OS to use
- a bluetooth speaker for the audience,
- and wired headphones for the DeeJay preview.

1) Connect the bluetooth speaker to the Mac
Go in Preference > Bluetooth and pair the Bluetooth speaker


2) If your audio interface control panel has a menu to set the headphones on the channel 1-2, set the headphones channel on 1-2.


3) Go in Utilities and run Audio MIDI Setup


4) In the Audio MIDI Setup, go to Window Audio devices, and create an aggregate device in clicking on the + button on bottom left


5) In the Aggregate device, add
- first, the Bluetooth speaker
- second, your audio interface device.




6) Click on Configure Speakers (bottom right of the window) and set:
- Aggregate Device as Multichannel: Quadriphonic
- Front: channel 1 and 2
- Rear : channel 3 and 4


7) In your DJ software, in the sound setup, set:
- Sound Card: Aggregate Device
- Outputs
   Master: Channel 1&2
   Headphones:  Channel 3&4


You can now
- play your mix on the bluetooth speaker for the audience
- preview your mix in your headphones.

Remark: you can 
1) neither use the microphone connected to the audio interface, as the microphone input is not connected to the bluetooth speaker,
2) nor use the output 1-2 of your audio interface to play the mix on wired speakers: your master output is your bluetooth speaker, while the output 1-2 of your audio interface plays the preview.

Locking your DJ controller

Hercules DJControl Instinct, DJ Control Air and DJ Control Air+ have a hole on their rear panel compatible with cable locks often called Kensington locks.

Kensington (http://www.kensington.com) has defined a format of locks cable for computers which is a standard to prevent the removal of many devices. http://www.kensington.com/us/us/4482/locks#.VBMCzmOwTpc

You can use this type of cable lock to attach your DJ controller if you perform in public areas and take a break: the lock prevents the removal of your mobile DJ controller while you are out.


Here is how you can use this type lock hole with DJControl Air+.

1) Remove the rubber cap covering the hole.

2) Take your lock cable, wind it around a non-removable element (as a bar), pass the lock in the loop on the other end of the cable.

3) Detail of the lock

4) Insert the lock in the hole

5) Turn the key

6) Remove the key. The controller is locked

 

You can also lock
