Hi, just a quickie.
I recently changed from an Allen and Heath Xone 92 to a DJM 800 for the features and better connectivity to my CDJ 2000s.
The problem i'm having is controlling the sound accurately. On my Xone 92 setting up the volume worked by letting it flicker onto the light beneath the over clipping, when in the mix it always stayed under the overkill.
On the DJM 800 I find if I let the light flicker onto the 1st red....I say flicker, it's just on or of on the DJM 800, when in the the mix it always goes into overkill.
What am I doing wrong.
Regards Lee

If the channel led meters stay in the green zone (after adjusting the channel gain controls) you should be fine. The master output should then be in the green too under normal circumstances. If you open more than one channel at the same time the overall (master) output could end up somewhere in the red zone, but that's not a real issue since it's temporary.

Besides, the DJM-800's sound is still ok in these circumstances.?

I did find the sound levels easier to tweak on the 92 though, but I do love the 800 for the effects, digital in etc. six of one half, a dozen of the other I suppose!!!

because 2 songs playing at the same time puts out more db than 1.

correct me if i'm wrong.

I get what you are saying but when only using 1 set of bass eq and then swapping the bass it never seemed to do it.

to do what? you just need to lower your master or put the gain's of your channels some lower.

i also use the technique of swapping bass but i never get problems with that.

just keep your volume's at 0 db, than your safe
