    The only things you could use it for would be;

    Use it with a soundcard that has at least 2 stereo outputs. Send some tracks to channel 1, and send some tracks to channel 2. You can then use the mixer/fader to switch between tracks, and pre-listen your tracks before mixing them with the VMX.

    Since the mixer is not equiped with midi or audio-FX, that'a about all you can use it for in a live set. 

    If you want to use Live for livesets or dj-sets, I would advise you to get a good multi-channel soundcard and one or more midi controllers.

    You won't need the mixer for a liveset; if you do need a mixer, you can just connect the soundcard to the dj-mixer in a club.
