I have no objection to FLAC but most DJs I know use 300kbs mp3 and
that's quite a few...

Obviously MIDI control on a software mixer like jackEQ would have even more possibilities but I wouldn't want to ignore the option of hardware mixer control via MIDI.

It's a good app but it's designed for hardware volume, etc controls
isn't it?

It's not really the same thing as mixing multiple streams from disc.
Although it is useful for multichannel playback/recording I'm sure.

Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke 
discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets 
disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street. 
Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before 
the arrival of U.S. troops.
