I'll have to get back on this. I intend to set up a full dj session with 
  6 outputs. 4 will be sample synced going to my mixer and 2 will be 
unsynced stereo heaphones for cueing. I'll probably have the mixer outs 
as inserts into the headphones route.

Serious testing will be over the next few days as I am JACK in Playback 
only mode with no xruns for the past 20 minutes. Next I have to get 
motivated to mix a set.
