You will need a XLR to TRS cable.
I looked in the mixwiz manual
XLR input sensitivity -60 to +10 db
TRS input sensitivity -40 to +10 db
Pad in (MIC or LINE) >10k ohm, -20dB
The Pioneer DJ mixer has a +22 DB sensitivity
I would think with the pad activated on the MW I would only have a +2 db at the line input of the Mixwiz but it seems way hotter than that. I have to turn the gain almost all the way off ( -8 db ) to not have a clipped signal when they red line the pioneer.
I just realized something .. There are 2 diagrams on the MW trim pot -10 to + 40 and 10db to +60
I have been looking at the TRS diagram and not the XLR diagram this entire time. So when I thought I was at 0DB i was actually at 20 DB because I was using XLR mic input ( wow i feel dumb )
The BSS input is not balanced, and has unity gain unless you switch in the pad. It seems like a lot of money to spend for what is essentially a pad.
The trouble with cheap passive DIs is they have small transformers which saturate easily at low frequencies and high levels (exactly the situation you will have will a DJ).
I'd look into a couple XLR barrel pads (you can make your own), and I think we discussed this a little while ago:
P.S. Just discovered the link within the link above is broken. This one works:
I rather not purchase 2 more DI's if not needed especially at such a high price. Really all I need is a Pad
Can I get some advice on what pad to get
I am leaning towards the 30 DB pad would that be to much ?
The Pioneer mixer is rated at +22 DB
I may not need a Pad at all if I use a TRS jack. I am going to test it when I get home. I dont have a DJM but i still should be able to replicate it..
Basically I just want a clean close to 0 DB signal into my board and a clean signal out to my PA
What do I need to accomplish that ?
