Both hands on different knobs turning at the same time.

You cant do that with theses mix software's out there because there is only one mouse, and not two. Its just not the same as mixing live. You loose a lot of features that you can only do analog, and I refuse to get a feel for a mouse that is always different to the touch. I want my mixer back !!!!
It's called midi-controllers, and you can map them to software (if the software supports it) to be able to control most (if not all) the parameters on the software.

There's Serato Scratch Live, VirtualDJ, Traktor, MixVibes, and my personal favorite: Ableton Live (cuz I can't beatmatch lolwut?).

I have an m-audio oxygen49 keyboard hooked up to ableton (purchased it based on this forum's outlook on it) and mapped with various macro controls and faders when I'm producing or 're-editing' a track, and my djm-800 when I'm mixing. I used to play on CDJ-800mk2s/1000mk3s, and now I'm finding myself just sitting w/Ableton Live for the most part.
