You got a generically factual and helpful response, and instead of taking the time to respond with to clarify what it is you want, instead decided to say "read my entire post".
I have read your entire post and it reads like stream of consciousness instead of getting to the point and actually having a real question. But sure...

Yes, people have connected a dj mixer to the Akai Force as an external sound device, and it will work if they are class compliant audio devices.
whoistherealjay wrote:Does anyone know if this is possible with any other dj mixer on the market?
Yes, this is possible with other dj mixers on the market that are class compliant audio devices.
Reasons it may not work seem to be related to class compliant audio devices that do not operate at 44.1khz and 16bit, and there has been an indication that audio buffer size is a problem. If you cannot change these settings on the device, the Force doesn't seem to set them and just expects it to work... so without a firmware update for the Force, it is currently hit or miss.
You already knew all of this though, so I fail to see what the actual question is other than this.

It is possible, so not really a clear reason to respond to this. And if you asked for what the best way(s) to use a DJ mixer with the Akai Force, this is going to be entirely dependent on your workflow.
Explain what it is you are trying to do, what outcome or workflow you are looking for, and you might get some help. Nobody is going to be able to intuit what it is you are really trying to get for information otherwise.
