Mixer mode is like a DJ setup with multiple input channels, faders and
speed control - so you can basically mix tracks using mp3 (it's actually
derived from mpegmixer which I wrote back in '95 and used layer 2 audio
- ancient history). To change your soundcard mixer setting just use an
external mixer application like xmixer - you don't sound like you're
going to need the internal mixer mode.
