During your live set, you often want to prepare your next track while the current is still playing, this task is called: Pre-cueing. This set-up divides the sound between your speakers and your headphones. While a track is coming out your speakers, you will have the possibility to hear the next track in your headphones and to prepare your mix. By hearing the two tracks in parallel, you'll be able to launch your transition at the perfect moment. As a result: successful DJ set.
